Maternity Photos | Knoxville Photographer | The Bowers

Knoxville Maternity Pictures

Meet Lyndsey and Jesse Bower. You would be hard-pressed to find a sweeter couple than these two! Jesse contacted me a few months before after searching for a Knoxville photographer to set up the maternity pictures for their anniversary. Major awesome points to him!!! Seriously, any man who willingly sets up portraits is A-OK in my book. We had a great time at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens, and took some beautiful maternity portraits!

Mom-to-be Pictures

In most Knoxvile maternity sessions, I like to get a great variety of images, including some of the mom-to-be alone. It's such a special time, and I love being able to make these lovely women feel as beautiful as they look while they're expecting. 


We stumbled upon a lovely brick staircase at the gardens, it was the perfect spot to show off this beautiful mom!


This ivy wall makes for a PERFECT backdrop for Knoxville Photographers for all types of sessions.

These stone buildings are beautiful! Knoxville maternity sessions have so many options for great backdrops!!  I love incorporating them into my sessions. 

Couple Maternity Pictures

Pregnancy pictures aren't just about the Mom, we also have a Daddy-to-be! I love to include them in as many shots as possible! Dads in maternity pictures make for some of the sweetest images. These are about your new family, and the start of a beautiful new life, it's time to celebrate! 

I love the framing of this stone wall, it's perfect to highlight the beautiful couple!

The beautiful Mom requested this pose, and I love how it turned out. It's so casual, but gorgeous! 

Lifestyle Newborn Photos | Knoxville Photographers | Amelia

Knoxville Newborn Baby Photographer


Little miss Amelia's Mom contacted me a few weeks ago to take some beautiful newborn pictures of her beautiful 6 week old daughter. At 6 weeks, she was a bit too old for typical newborn portraits. but that didn't mean we couldn't get amazing baby and family pictures! We opted for a lifestyle session to make the most out of their package. 

What are "Lifestyle Sessions" in Knoxville?

Lifestyle sessions are a style of professional photography that focuses on you being you. These pictures are more natural or candid and take place in your home, or another place that's special for your family, such as a local park with lots of memories. Older newborns make for GREAT Knoxville lifestyle photography. It's a great opportunity for their parents to snuggle their baby close, and preserve those sweet moments. 


Newborn Pictures in the Nursery

We started out Amelia's session in her pretty, pink nursery. It was the perfect backdrop to grab some great, relaxed photos of her with her Mom and Dad. Her Mom has such great decorating taste, which made the family pictures all  the better!


Who can resist such a sweet Mommy and baby moment???

Six Week Old Pictures

Next, we did a few pictures of baby Amelia, and guess what? She even smiled!!! I brought a few headbands, wraps, and props to enhance miss Amelia's beauty in her six week pictures alone. She rocked them!

Family Pictures On Their Bed

At the end of the session, we moved to their lovely master bedroom, and took a few lifestyle family pictures on their bed. This is one of my favorite things to do in  lifestyle session! I love the togetherness, and cozy feeling of these pictures. This session was no exception! It's so sweet to watch new moms and dads with their new addition in a comfy setting.

Dominic's Portraits | Knoxville Child Photographer

Knoxville Photographer


Meet Dominic! An absolutely spunky, fun-loving nine year old, who requested to have his picture taken in Knoxville with some awesome graffiti! Mr. Dominic wants to be a model, and boy is he good at it! Being a Knoxville child photographer, I've photographed hundreds of children, and he might have just been the easiest young man to work with!

This cool guy and me had a blast during his downtown Knoxville, Market Square, session.  He had so many great ideas, and knew just how to pose before I could even get the words out. I couldn't believe he was only nine!

Here's some favorites!

Rawlin's Five Year Old Portraits | Knoxville Child Photographer

Meet Rawlin! A spunky, energetic, full of life little boy! He's quite the character, and his favorite superhero happens to be The Flash. What better way to keep a little guy's attention than to let him dress up as his favorite superhero? 

We had tons of fun showing off in downtown Maryville while taking urban portraits. He ran around making everyone laugh by flying, and jumping all over the place. The results were fantastic! I couldn't ask for a better boy superhero. I adore his portraits; they're so much fun! 


Here's a few of my favorites:

Emma's Newborn Session | Knoxville Newborn Photographer

Knoxville Newborn Photography


Meet sweet, sweet baby Emma! She is simply a doll with a FULL head of hair and beautiful, creamy skin. She was perfect in every way. After a bit of coaxing, she fell right to sleep, and let me capture some stunning images of her perfect, little face. 

Knoxville has so many beautiful newborns! I enjoy working with each and every one of them. Getting to see their unique personalities, and interact with such sweet, sweet babies is a dream. 

Here's my favorites from Emma's session:

Peyton's Newborn Portraits | Knoxville Newborn Photographer

Knoxville Newborn Photography


Meet Peyton; one of the most wonderful babies I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. He slept like an absolute dream; I couldn't believe it! I can't remember the last sweet baby who slept so well while I moved and posed them! As a Knoxville newborn photographer, it was the highlight of my week!

Newborn photography is so different than any other type of photography that I do. It takes patience, and knowledge for a safe, happy newborn session. I adore working with these little ones and being the "baby whisperer".

It was seriously a fabulous newborn session. I loved very second of it! 

Here are some of my favorites!

Kendred and Ingrid | Intimate Knoxville Wedding

Intimate weddings are some of my favorites, and I had the pleasure of photographing an adorable couple's just last weekend! Kendred and Ingrid were simply amazing and so photogenic!

This couple chose a beautiful location, at the perfect time of day for gorgeous, golden portraits. I couldn't have planned it better myself! They were even so thoughtful as to consult with me on when the lighting would be the absolute best (talk about a dream couple to work with!!). We had a grand time finding the perfect spots for them to pose in after their elegant, simple Knoxville ceremony. 

The love between these two shows all over their faces in their portraits. They hardly even had to be posed; they were so awesome together!! I can't wait to share some of my favorites with you all!

It's been fabulous to be back home and photographing in Knoxville and the Smoky Mountains. It looks like it's straight out of a fairytale! I am loving all the wildflowers, and the beautiful trees. Being invited to photograph this stunning couple's ceremony in a perfect location was amazing and I am incredibly glad I had the opportunity to be there.
