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.

Say Hello to Scarlett, our latest contest winner! She scheduled a maternity session with me, at a beautiful botanical garden. I'm so glad she did! Even this early in the Spring, a TON of flowers are already blooming and absolutely stunning! I'm so excited to get out and photograph more in this fabulous season. Who can resist the warmth in the air and all the blooms?? It's the perfect time of year to update your pictures!

We had beautiful golden light during Scarlett's maternity session ( why I LOVE shooting at golden hour). It made the whole garden look absolutely magical. She is expecting a sweet baby boy in May, and what great parents this lovely couple will make! 

Take a look at a few of my favorite maternity pictures from their session!
