When Tara contacted me about taking her maternity / pregnancy announcement photos my first thought was, "Wow she has a cool name!" LOL (Anyone else feel as if it is so rare to meet someone with your name?) Then, I was excited because she wanted her photos taken indoors which meant I finally was able to photograph a session in the new studio located near downtown Knoxville, TN.
The new studio I am renting is absolutely gorgeous with a ton of natural light. Everything you need for a session is there, whether it is a couch, a bed, a brick wall or even if you want to use just backdrops. For Tara's session we decided to keep it more natural and give the photos a "homey" feel. I definitely think that feeling translated into the images, and it's almost hard to believe they were taken in studio and not at their house.
For some of the pregnancy announcement photos we just captured mom and dad, but in others we included the soon to be older brother. As you will see he is more than excited for his new role as a big sibling! Scroll down to see some of my favorite images from the Graves Family's pregnancy announcement session.
