Knoxville Photographer | The Cove at Concord Park | Heather's Maternity Session

Knoxville Maternity Photographer

 

Meet the Whittemore family ( almost everyone, a sweet new addition has arrived since their maternity session)! Heather contacted me for an awesome family maternity session and we made it happen at The Cove at Concord Park.

During family maternity sessions, I love to do a great mix of poses with just Mom, the family, Mom and Dad, and some solo of the kiddos. It allows us to have the focus on maternity pictures, but also show the relationships, and have a great variety of images. These guys were amazing; we did so many beautiful poses in just 45 minutes. Little Louis was a total trooper to give his Mom some amazing mother-son pictures even after he thought his portion was done. 

Check out some of my favorites!

Jessica and Kent's Knoxville Botanical Garden Session

 

The Carringers Knoxville maternity session could not have turned out more perfectly! Simply put, the rsults are awesome! Kent contacted me back around the holidays, to purchase a maternity and newborn session for his wife for Christmas. I have to give him kudos for thinking of portraits as a gift; so thoughtful.  

Everyone was a bit concerned about the weather and foliage for the session with the up and down weather we've been having here in East Tennessee over the past few weeks. The day of was BEAUTIFUL, warm for early March, and a few of the trees and bushes were already in bloom. Kent and Jessica were awesome and had some great input for backdrops that I was able to incorporate with my own. 

I can't wait to meet their new addition next month!

Knoxville Newborn Photographer | Photographer in Knoxville TN | Newborn Baby

Knoxville Photographers

 

I love babies! I mean, I really love these sweet babies that I get to work with. Little Lucy was such a sweetie <3. She came to visit me right in the middle of a baby boom! Five baby girls, all photographed within a ten day span in my Knoxville studio. Let's just say, even after five, sweet baby girls, I still haven't had enough of cuddling babies. 

As a special treat, Lucy's grandma got to come and watch her session, and might have even been volunteered to assist me in composite pose ( two images put together in photoshop for babies safety!). Grandma was so smitten with her; just beautiful! 

 

Awake Knoxville Newborn Pictures

Lucy decided that her Mommy would really love some beautiful newborn portraits with her eyes open. The sweet girl was so patient while I posed her, even wide awake; after a wiggle or two, she was such happy girl, looking right at the camera. That's so rare for newborns, and so beautiful!

Sweet girl fought sleep for a little while, but once she fell asleep, she was ASLEEP. We got to have so much fun with different props and poses. Lucy was amazing to transfer from my curved bench over to the beanbag for my classic newborn pictures. 

Posed Newborn Pictures

Newborns are best posed when deep asleep, although that doesn't mean you can't get beautiful awake image ( just go look above!); it allows you to get those squishy, adorable poses like these. 

I have such a hard time narrowing down newborn pictures for my blog! They're all so darling. Who could ever have enough of looking at this sweet face?

How To Find the Perfect Fit among Knoxville Photographers

Knoxville TN Photographer

 

Are you muddling through page after page of Google results looking for a Knoxville photographer? Stop right here, grab a cup of coffee, and let me help. 

Let me start by saying that you have a TON of choices when it comes to Knoxville Photographers. Whether you choose to use me, or another photographer, the perfect fit is out there. Think of your search kind of like the Cinderella glass slipper; it has to be perfect right?

1. Love your Knoxville Photographer's Style

Find a photographer whose images you adore. I cannot stress this enough. Before you book with me, I want you to love my work, and be SO excited to have your own family photographed.  A good professional photographer will have a defined style, and you should see similarities in style across their images. Style isn't something that is easily changed, so make sure you love what you see; your finished product will look similar. When it comes to style, you may not be able to put your finger on the differences, but you know YOU best, so choose the photographer whose images you can't stop looking at.

2. Determine Your Budget and Save if Needed

Professional photographer are priced according to their skill level, and to cover professional overhead ( such as insurance, taxes, editing software, camera gear, etc). I know it might be sticker shock the first time you see a Knoxville photographer's packages ( I sure was sticker shocked years ago when I first started!). Don't settle! If budget is an issue, save for those pictures you really want. Many photographers offer payment plans as well, especially on time sensitive sessions like newborns. Personally, I'm happy to work with a client on budget to make their photography dreams a reality.

3. Contact Your Top Choice

Reach out to your favorite photographer. Feel free to ask questions, and let them know your thoughts on your shoot. I personally love to answer client questions and put their concerns to rest. I completely understand that you don't know the ins and outs of photography, and that's why you're hiring me. Photographers will have no problem answering your questions, chatting and planning your session with you. Once you're in contact, your photographer will guide you through the booking process. 

If you love my work, please feel free to reach out and chat with me. I will be happy to take some time to talk through your questions and concerns.

Knoxville Photographer | Maternity Session | Ashlee's Session

Knoxville Maternity Pictures 

 

The lake! What a great place for pictures as the weather warms up. If you're looking for water for your session, the location I took Ashlee is my top choice! It's got a cute little beach, groves of trees, and the beautiful lake. It's absolutely perfect, and right in Knoxville!

Ashlee is a beautiful first time mommy who came to me for a maternity session, with her Mom and sister in tow for moral support. We had a great time exploring what Knoxville's The Cove park had to offer; so many great spots for Knoxville maternity pictures with a natural feel!

Maternity Gowns for Rent in Knoxville

Ashlee modeled a few of my maternity gowns for me, and did so beautifully! This first one she wore is a fitted, lace pink maternity gown by Mii Estillo.

Knoxville Beach Lake Maternity Pictures

Who knew Knoxville had a beach for pictures? We stumbled upon the prettiest little lakefront beach spot at the Cove. The sand was so pretty we just had to take a few pictures there with Ashlee in the Faythe dress, a beautiful, flowing chiffon maternity gown.

Forest Maternity Session in Knoxville

Along with the water, the Cove has an amazing little forest of trees, that give a magical, fairytale look to any session. I love how the light filters through in my favorite spots; so gorgeous! It's a great backdrop for all kinds of sessions!

We ended our session right at sunset, for that perfect light that I love so much. Ashlee had time to throw on one more maternity gown, the Audrey, with just enough time to catch the last rays.

Knoxville Photographer | Maternity Pictures | Urban Tennessee River

Knoxville Maternity Pictures

 

Meet Brittany. A soon to be mommy of two! Isn't she absolutely radiant? I just love everything about her Knoxville maternity session.

We planned for golden hour at Volunteer Landing, right by the river. It's an adorable little urban park, that I just love for sessions. It was the perfect spot for Brittany's maternity pictures before her family moves out of the area; a great memento of Knoxville. I had a great time getting to know her and her family.

She wore both my Emma sequin maternity angown, and my Poppy gown with tossing train. Both are available for rent for your very own maternity session. Rental is absolutely free when you book your session with me. You deserve to feel gorgeous for your maternity pictures <3. 

This first one is the Emma, it looked fabulous on Brittany!

Next, she wore the strapless Poppy gown. That blue, paired with the water and the birdges in the background... I just LOVE it!

Maternity Pictures | Knoxville photographer | Ashley's and Nathan

Knoxville Urban Maternity Session

I'm so thrilled to share Ashley and Nathan's downtown Knoxville maternity session with you all! Ashley looked AMAZING in the maternity gowns she wore so well by Sew Trendy Accessories. These two were fabulous and so easy to work with, and just great together. Trust me, you'll see their chemistry in some of my favorite images. 

We spent the evening wandering through downtown in the 40 degree weather ( although you wouldn't know it looking at Ashley's pictures; she was a trooper!). There are so great urban spots in Knoxville to choose from. 

Maternity Gowns

Ashley wore two of the gorgeous maternity gowns available to my clients for their maternity sessions, both the Samantha and Celine gowns from Sew Trendy. They accentuated her natural beauty and showed off her bump perfectly. 

These might just be on my all-time favorite picture list; they're so incredibly beautiful.

Knoxville Engagement Pictures | Knoxville TN Photographer | Coope

Knoxville Photographer

 

Oh what fun this lovely couple was. We braved a chilly, windy day for their beautiful engagement pictures in Knoxville, TN. We met at a lovely garden, with tons of little nooks and crannies to pose in. I just love exploring green spaces, especially while chatting with such lovely people. 

Engagement pictures are always fun sessions! Two people in love, showing it off for the world to see. It's a beautiful thing to share in. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their darling session.

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!

Maryville Family Photos

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. 

Knoxville Photographers | Sunflower Maternity Session | The Jones Family

Knoxville Photographer

 

A maternity session in a huge field of sunflowers, it doesn't get much better! This maternity session just aligned perfectly! We were all set for a different location, but on a whim, I asked Katie if she'd like to switch to the sunflower field that happened to be in full bloom. As luck would have it, sunflowers were her favorite flower! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect session. 

The heat and humidity has been KILLER this year in Knoxville, but you would never know looking at them! They were real troopers enduring the swarming bees ( who were thankfully more interested in the flowers). It was 100% worth it for the final images. 

Maternity Pictures in Field of Flowers

Aren't they just the sweetest?? Seriously, I had the hardest time choosing pictures for the blog, they're all so cute!

Maternity Photographer Knoxville

There was the most adorable little path next to the flowers that we took advantage of as well. I love the simplicity of it.

Maternity Portraits

Pictures of just the mom-to-be are some of my favorites! Katie looks so beautiful in these, that I had to include a few in the blog.
