Lifestyle Maternity Pictures | Knoxville Photographer | The Franklins

Maternity Photography


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the Franklins! I'm not sure I've ever had the pleasure of meeting a more lovely couple. Our Knoxville maternity session was scheduled for a week where it rained nearly every afternoon here in East Tennesse but they didn't let them get them down! Instead, they invited me into their lovely home for indoor, lifestyle pictures! Their beautiful house was perfect for a lifestyle session; so light, bright, and open.

Lifestyle Maternity Couple's Pictures

I LOVE when dads are so involved with maternity pictures. I totally get that most men are not a huge fan of pictures ( I mean, I can't blame them. I'm not a huge fan of being in front of the camera myself!), but it's wonderful to have the images, with Dad included, to look back on later. Jeff was awesome, and his love for their little girl is written all over his face in their pictures. <3 <3 <3 <3. He's going to take some awesome new dad portraits when their little girl arrives! 

Seriously, these two needed hardly any guidance to nail perfect posed, or beautiful candid images. 

Uli had a ton of great ideas, and we did our own spin on this one. I couldn't be happier with the results! What parents aren't completely immersed in these books???


You would never know we were battling dreary, drizzly weather that day.

Uli was radiant! We did some beautiful maternity poses of just her in their home as well. They are simply stunning. Maternity pictures don't get any more gorgous than these. 


Outdoor Maternity Pictures

Despite the AMAZING pictures we were able to take indoor, I desperately wanted to take a few pictures of Uli outdoors on their property. So, the next week, I went out for a quick mini session. Beautiful trees, fields, and wide open blue skies what more do you need?
