Newborn Photography Session Knoxville, TN | Lucy

This beautiful newborn photography session took place at this family’s home on the lake in Andersonville, TN, which is just outside of Knoxville, TN and the location of the Museum of Appalachia.

This sweet baby girl has been wanted for a very long time. Years of infertility, miscarriages, and the pursuit of adoption all came before her. Little Lucy has a unique story; she was conceived through embryo adoption. She is definitely adored by her parents and even her older brother Christian seems to like her alright.

We ended the newborn photography session with some individual photos of sweet little Lucy. These precious newborn photos will always be treasured and will be so fun to look back on as she grows! I wonder what she’ll think about the giant flower headband mommy picked for her?

Lifestyle Family Photography Session | The Vandagriffs

This lifestyle family photography session was extra special. It was a gift from a friend for this sweet family who had just learned that Jessica, the beautiful wife and mother you see in the photos below, has breast cancer. She started chemo only a few days after we did these photos. We had a fun session, exploring and playing.

The location we used had this awesome stump with this scripture on it, and it was perfect for this battle against cancer that they’re facing.

We’ve found that the most enjoyable approach to family sessions with children is to let them have fun and even lead the way sometimes. We choose locations where they can explore and play. This way we capture their personalities, natural smiles, and the relationships in the family.

We know these are photos that this family will always cherish. Capturing many sweet moments before a difficult journey. Jessica has been doing really well with her cancer treatments. If you would like to help this family during this difficult time, you can donate to their GoFundMe account here.

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.
