Gatlinburg and Knoxville Maternity Photographer

 

What to wear??? That's the question on everyone's mind when they book a Knoxville maternity session. Wardrobe can make a break your session, and while you're expecting, wardrobe can be even more of a challenge. I remember when I was pregnant, finding clothes I liked, that fit was a struggle, let alone maternity clothes that fit well enough for my maternity pictures. There's tons of beautiful maternity gown designers, like Sew Trendy, but they can get pricey for just one wear, especially if you want a few different styles.

I saw this dilemma firsthand and watched a lot my maternity clients struggle to feel amazing in their outfits, so I did something; I created my client closet.

I currently have over 50 maternity gowns in a range of sizes and styles for you to rent, at no cost, for your maternity session. I've curated these to have amazing options that photograph beautifully. I'm so excited to be able to offer these gowns to make your maternity experience that much better. What Mama doesn't want to feel like a princess for at least a day?

Some of my favorite maternity gown images!

Knoxville Photographer

 

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love repeat clients? Watching little ones grow up and families change is one of the biggest perks of my job. This beautiful family, I have had the pleasure of photographing for a year and a half. When Sarah told me she was pregnant, I was so excited for them, especially little Landon getting to be a big brother! Sarah's maternity session was magical, and Landon was such a patient, handsome little prince <3

*Super secret photographer tip* We did the must have toddler poses first, so little man could go play when his attention was used up.

Knoxville Maternity Clothes

One of the biggest challenged my mama's have for their maternity session is what to wear! I really want you to feel beautiful for your maternity session, and I know struggling with maternity clothes in Knoxville ( with our tiny selection of stores) does not make that easy. I have ordered over 40 custom maternity gowns exclusively for my clients, so you can feel your very best. Sarah was so kind as to model a few extras for me during her session, so I could show them off to you all. 

Check out her session!

Gatlinburg Maternity Photographer

 

This Mama-To-Be had a beautiful (although cold!) Maternity session in Cades Cove. It's one of my very favorite places on earth, so I'm always super excited when I get to photograph there! It has so much to offer from the creek, to mountain views, and forest, just endless possibilities. It's really the perfect spot for those looking for a vacation photographer in Gatlinburg to capture all the Tennessee beauty. 

Lexi did an amazing job combating the chilly day for beautiful maternity pictures in Gatlinburg. Her family is expecting two adorable new little ones in the next few weeks, to make them a lovely family of 6. 

Maternity Gown Rental

Lexi wore two of my rental maternity gowns that come free with your maternity session. This first one is the Aurora in Lilac by Leah Marie Couture. It's beautifully soft and feminie and can be worn sheer, or with a slip for full coverage.

Meet Kendra! Her and her hubby met me at a beautiful Smoky Mountain location for their maternity session. The river and rock faces made amazing backdrops for her beautiful maternity pictures. I am so fortunate to live close enough to photograph in the mountains and rivers of East Tennessee. 

She wore one of my maternity gowns, the Kiara is wine. It is available to rent for your very own session, absolutely free when you book with me. That red is SO her color, she was STUNNING in it. I adore all of the images from her session. 

I cannot wait to meet their beautiful baby in just a few weeks! Sweet babies are my favorite!

Knoxville Maternity Pictures | Military Couple in Maternity Gown | Michaela's Maternity Session

Maryville Photographer | Maryville College Campus

 

I had the opportunity to work with this super sweet couple for their maternity pictures! The timing was perfect as they just celebrated Army AIT graduation, so his dress blues were ready to go. We lucked out with a nice, warm February day in the sixties, which was fantastic. Maryville College campus provided us with gorgeous backgrounds, despite it being winter. 

My husband is a veteran, so it's always such a wonderful thing for me to be able to work with soldiers and their families. Plus, the uniform sure looks spiffy in pictures!

Free Maternity Gown Rental 

Finding something to wear for maternity pictures is hard! Not all maternity close are super cute and photogenic, so I'm now offering maternity gowns!

Michaela wore a few of my favorite gowns from my maternity gown collection, both the Aubrey and Harlow gowns by Sew Trendy ( my absolute favorite gown designer!). This HUGE collection ( over 30!) is available to rent for my maternity clients, absolutely free with your session. They're made to perfectly show off your bump while being super flattering for the expectant mama. 

Pink Ruffled Maternity Gown

This is the Harlow gown, a ruffled pink gown fit for a princess. Michaela wore it so well, and I think it fit her personality perfectly <3. Every mama deserves to feel like a princess, it's hard work growing a tiny human.

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. 

Gatlinburg Family Pictures | Pigeon Forge Photographer | Melanie's Family

Cades Cove Family Pictures

 

Extended Families are the best! When Melanie contacted me to capture her fun family while they were all on vacation together, I was thrilled! I love getting to be a part of these big families while they visit the Smoky Mountains. Plus, Smoky Mountain pictures are to die for! Sharing the natural beauty I experience on a daily basis =). I seriously can't tell you how much I love being a Gatlinburg photographer!

Big Family Picture in Cades Cove

Of course, we had to get a picture of all of the family together with the mountains! No stay in Gatlinburg would be complete without it! They are such a lovely bunch, and such pleasant company!

Candid Smoky Mountain Picture

So much of my work is beautiful, posed portraits, which are GREAT, but sometimes the candids are my very favorites. This sweet little family had fun playing in the field and we got some candid fun on camera with the stunning Smoky Mountains in the background. oh, and that light!!

Gatlinburg Family Pictures

Now it's time to share a few more of my favorites! We took so many awesome pictures that it was super hard to narrow them down for a blog post!
