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.

Oh, and have I mentioned that this wasn’t just a simple family session, we also took some extra special photos too! And this is why I had to wait so long to share these!

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

what to wear for maternity photos, Sunset Maternity Couples Maternity Lifestyle Session in Knoxville, TN

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.

BoyMom Session – Emily and the Boys

This Mommy and Me Session was so much fun to photograph! Emily loves being a boymom and has such a great time with them. Since I have 2 boys of my own around the same ages, I was right in my comfort zone photographing them. We explored, played, and everyone had a great time.

Every child seems to love picking flowers for their Mommy. It’s always a highlight of our Mommy and Me sessions.

We love playing games during our sessions to keep the kids engaged and happy.

When we pulled out the blanket, the boys got excited. They hopped right on and laid down beside mommy for some photos. Then they ran and jumped on mom to play. Then they decided that it must be time for sleep since we had a blanket out, so they both laid down and pretended to sleep! Being a boymom comes with so many unique and fun moments.

This was an action filled, fun, sweet Mommy and Me session. It’s an honor to get to capture these memories for families. Mommy and Me sessions tend to appeal more to mothers with little girls, but they are so important for boymoms too!
