1 Year Studio This week was very busy with shooting, which is a refreshing change of pace from all the computer work I’ve been doing the last two weeks. I’ve had some portraits every day, and this family was one of them. The Moyers: a family that feels like my family at this point. I […]

Harlinsdale Farm When I look at the image above from this Harlinsdale Farm family session, I laugh because this adorable 2 year old LOVES his puppy, and his puppy is totally just taking it. I also see so much joy in the threads of this family it makes my heart burst! Meet Lauren & Mike […]

Harlinsdale Farm Sunrise Session No matter what city you live in, it’s natural to develop relationships with the people around you. Sometimes, it’s seasonal relationships that fade when you don’t live in close proximity to one another, and sometimes, it’s close friendships that lead to more phone calls as the distance grows. Then, there’s something […]

Lenoir Cotton Mill The Weiss family is from Chattanooga, TN. I got to photograph their wedding and Elliana’s newborn session in Chattanooga! For her 3 month session, we were right in the middle of winter so they came to my home studio. For her 6 month session, we met in Lenoir City at the Lenoir […]

1 Year Studio Session I think this may have been the happiest 1 year studio session that I’ve ever photographed. He literally came in the door smiling, loved my camera, was super social, and is adorable!!! My studio sessions have changed a little bit. Now that we are expecting baby #2, we’ve had to turn […]

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 […]

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?

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 […]
