Maryville Family Photographer | Cake Smash First Birthday | The Armstrongs

Maryville Photographer


I was beginning to think the weather was completely against me getting to work with the Armstong family! We scheduled in the middle of this bit of a rainy season we're having here in Knoxville, and had to move the session, not once, but twice! I'm so thankful they were willing to hang in there with me for their beautiful family pictures. Well worth the wait!

We chose Pearson Springs in Maryville for this family session, the weather FINALLY cooperated, and did so beautifully. I couldn't have asked for more gorgeous lighting! Their three little ones were just darling! There were all about playing and smiling; I love when children warm right up to me <3. There was a definite chill in the air, but they powered right through with those bright eyes and grins. It usually takes me way longer ( and a lot more silly noises) to get three littles looking my way. 

First Birthday Cake Smash

Fast forward to my studio for the cake smash! I LOVE cake smashes, but sometimes the babies don't share my enthusiasm. Little miss was a bit unsure about her cake, but in the end gave in and gave it a few good smashes.

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting the Arnold family for their pictures! They are such a great bunch, with simply beautiful children! I couldn't ask for a better family to photograph. Their girls were so patient waiting on their brother to crack a smile and what personalities! 

Knoxville has so many stunning locations to photograph, just like this beautiful botanical garden; it looks simply magical.Everything about this garden reminds me of a fairytale.  Family sessions are so important! If your family is anything like mine, one parent is always behind the camera, so it's hard to document everyone together. This is your chance to have everyone together for a beautiful portrait. 

I'm not sure I have ever met a 4 and 6 year old as patient as these two little girls were! They held their smiles and were so still and amazing while I snapped away. Once that sweet baby boy cracked a smile, he was perfect! All three were great little models!

I took a few moments to get individual portraits of these sweet kiddos and I'm sure glad I did! Their personalities were such fun and shine through their images. 

Who could resist that face??

I LOVE her laugh!

Such a sweet girl!

What a great family! I'm so excited to get their images to them.
