Lifestyle Maternity Photography Session – Knoxville, TN

This indoor lifestyle maternity photography session in Knoxville, TN was so much fun! Alexa and Travis are awaiting the arrival of their first sweet baby boy. I love the design and decorations they chose for their nursery, so cute!

Here we decided to try out a different perspective, and it turned out to be a unique and beautiful photo.

Next we moved into their master bedroom for some sweet photos of the two of them together. Travis actually made their headboard and night stands! We were super impressed.

We definitely couldn’t leave their first babies out, their sweet dogs. They even posed for us and looked right at the camera!

Then we moved into their guest bedroom to do some photos in front of the window that had gorgeous light shining through.

They’re waiting to reveal their baby boy’s name until after he’s born. They let us in on their secret, so we have some cute photos and video to announce his name! But, shhh, we will have to wait until he’s here to share those!

Indoor lifestyle maternity photography sessions are so much fun! They capture a special moment in your life by taking place in your house. Every home has lovely spaces for photos. The nursery, the master bedroom, and the living room are go-to locations for us. We also look for a bright window to get those beautiful backlit silhouette photos. And then we can also venture into the unique and special places in your home or right outside. These sessions are great for getting a huge variety in photos and really telling your story.

When we come to photograph an indoor lifestyle session, we always have your story in mind. We want to capture the big picture and the little details. These photos are perfect for displaying in an heirloom album that can be passed along to your children so they can see this unique and special time in your life.

The Thompson’s – Family Photography Session

I had the great privilege of doing a family photography session our friends & next door neighbors. We did a 1.5 hour session and were able to utilize so many beautiful locations on the campus! We began our session at these beautiful trees with amazing spring flowers. I love the colors of Spring! Addie enjoyed climbing up in the tree and playing with her parents.

Then we moved on to our next location, a lovely field. Addie had fun exploring and joking around with her parents.

I think it’s safe to say that Addie is super excited about being a big sister! I love pregnancy announcements, always such a fun, happy time!

For what we thought would be the last location for our session, we went up on the hill to get some photos in the gorgeous golden light just before sunset.

I especially love these sweet photos of Jessica and Addie! They look so much alike.

Addie was so disappointed when we said that we were done! This girl is all about the camera, and she really wanted to take some more photos. So we agreed on one last stop, the pond. All the kids love going to the pond. So we ended the session with some funny faces and Addie the little diva striking a pose!

What to Wear: Maternity

One of the most important parts of your maternity photo session is clothing! We want you to wear timeless pieces that fit your personal style and make you feel beautiful! Below you will find 10 Tips on What to Wear for your maternity session.

  1. Multiple Outfits – Most of the time, our maternity sessions allow for at least 2 outfits. This will add variety to your images and allow you to create 2 different looks. You might choose to have one outfit set to be more dressy and the other to be more casual.
  2. Form Fitting – A comfortable stretchy outfit that hugs all your curves and shows off that beautiful baby bump. There are many types of clothing to choose from to get a form fitting look: maxi dress, short dress, top and skirt, top and pants.
  3. Flowing – Flowing dresses and skirts show beautiful movement in photos. Boho style maxi dresses are perfect for this look as are some specialty maternity gowns. You can use lace or sheer fabric to show off even more of that baby bump.
  4. Colors & Patterns – Both solid colors and beautiful patterns can work wonderfully. Stay away from neons & busy patterns.
  5. Textures – Utilizing textured fabric in your clothing can create more visual interest in the photos. Lace, chiffon, denim, crochet, and chunky knits are all good choices.
  6. Layers – Layering pieces add wonderful variety and can help cover any areas you might be self-conscious about.
  7. Accessories – Necklaces, Earrings, Scarves, Bracelets, Rings, Headpieces, and Hats can complete an outfit. Choose wisely, don’t overdo them and make sure they match the aesthetic of your outfit.
  8. Undergarments – Well fitting undergarments can make a world of difference! Make sure you have bras and underwear that work with each outfit you plan to use during your session.
  9. Coordinate – Dad and any children who will be in the photos need to wear outfits that coordinate with Mom. Be careful to not overdo patterns. Choose simple, comfortable outfits that fit well.
  10. Where to Shop – Don’t get stuck shopping only in the maternity section, there are beautiful pieces of ‘regular’ clothes that will work wonderfully during pregnancy as well! Look through the clothes you already have to see if you have some pieces that will work well. You can also use this as a time to treat yourself to something new, below are a list of great places to shop for beautiful clothes for your maternity session.
    1. Pink Blush
    2. Forever 21
    3. Lulu’s
    4. Asos
