2018 Favorite Portraits There is a second branch to Amanda May Photos, and that is portrait photography. Portrait photography includes seniors, families, newborns, maternities, birthdays, headshots, fundraisers, anniversaries, and more. It’s pretty much anything I shoot that is not a wedding or an engagement, which are the main purpose of AMP. Sometimes, it means shooting […]

Studio session Shooting in the winter can be tricky. It hasn’t been as tricky this year as it usually is because until now, the weather has been generally super warm! With babies under 1, shooting outside in the winter just isn’t an option. Their noses get SUPER red and runny, and they are just not […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens Family Session On August 13th, 2018, Tralene and Justin Lucas said their vows and committed their lives to one another at Sampson’s Hollow. I had the absolute pleasure of photographing their intimate, personal wedding that day. You can see their wedding blog post here! It was gorgeous, and Tralene made an INCREDIBLE […]

Studio 3 Month Session Elliana was one of the smiliest babies I have ever seen at a studio 3 month session. She was smiling, talking, and tummy-timing like a 6 month old. I told Edie and Josh this, too, but I think she’s going to be sitting up at 4 or 5 months old. Also, […]

Fox Den Family Session The forecast was 90% chance of rain, but there was no rescheduling a session that 3 families had coordinated their schedules to attend. So, we changed the location to a family home in the Fox Den neighborhood. If you’ve never been in this neighborhood, it’s a REALLY cool area to drive […]

Lakeshore Park So, I’ve shot at Lakeshore Park a couple of times. Both times, my GPS took me into the Lyon’s View Pike entrance. Going that way, the park seems much smaller than it is, and I’m realizing how naive I was to think it wasn’t huge. Everyone in Knoxville knows how gigantic that park […]

Estate of Grace Family Session Can we all acknowledge how amazing this family did at coordinating their outfits for this Estate of Grace family session? I was editing the photos one day while my mother-in-law was in town watching Grayson for me. She came into my office for a second to tell me something, saw […]

Estate of Grace Family If you haven’t noticed, I have been shooting Estate of Grace family sessions a lot lately. Mostly because I just discovered this venue this year at Kayla and Micah’s wedding, and when I got to the property for their engagement session, my jaw literally dropped. Who knew there are such amazing […]

Melton Hill Park I love love love love this family. Over 3 years ago when we moved to Knoxville from Nashville, I also made the transition to being a full time wedding photographer. I immediately started trying to build close, personal friendships in the photography industry. It’s hard, you guys. Especially as an introvert. That’s […]

Norris Dam Family Session A grandmother, a mom, a dad, two daughters, and one son-in-law. It’s always interesting to photograph a Norris Dam family session with adult children. I do it at the beach every year on family vacations with the Fothergills, but it’s not something that happens as often as family sessions with little […]

Spout Springs Vineyard Family Session It has been a long time since I got to spend some quality time with these two. Brad and Kari got married at the Smithview Pavilion back in 2015. Their wedding was the first wedding that I ever shot at Smithview, and when I arrived, I was blown away with […]

Melton Hill Park Sunrise Session I was introduced to Melton Hill Park at sunset earlier this year when my virtual assistant had me come there to take her family’s pictures! Since that session, I have had TONS of people ask me to go there to photograph their families. All of them, however, have been sunset […]

Meads Quarry 1 Year Old Session This little girl had her very own Meads Quarry 1 year old session last week, and she basically killed it. She was walking around pretty good, smiling like crazy, clapping nonstop, and wanting to put every single rock in her mouth. About half way through the session, I had […]

We got together for her little brother’s 6 month session, but I added an extra 30 minutes onto their time because I couldn’t help but spend some extra time collecting memories of this big […]
