Downtown Knoxville and Knoxville Botanical Gardens Engagement Session Lauren and Tucker are getting married at a new venue in Johnson City, Tennessee, called Waterstone. This venue looks more and more amazing every time I see images from it! I am so utterly stoked to shoot there in May 2020. Until then, I’m here to share […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens Maternity Caitlin is a nurse, Cody is a truck driver, and they are expecting their first sweet babe. Caitlin might be the cutest little pregnant lady that I have ever seen, and it was an absolute pleasure photographing their Knoxville Botanical Gardens maternity session. She’s so tiny and truly just has a […]

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 […]

Knoxville Botanical Senior Session I think this senior is the epitome of awesome. With her adorable glasses, high waisted pants, and floral combat boots, she’s the cutest hipster I know. Also, to go right along with her personal style, she’s planning to go to a makeup school in Nashville that teaches you how to do […]

6 Month Session at Knoxville Botanical Gardens You guys. Look at this little girl’s cheese grin! Seriously! I’m dying over here.

Knoxville Botanical Gardens Senior Session A couple of years ago, I took senior portraits of a girl named Brianne (click here to see those). They are still some of my FAVORITE senior pictures because of how fun this girl was. Her smile, her hair, and most of all, her authenticity made it so much fun […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens One Year The Parrott family…you know them. They are fabulous and right in the middle of one of the craziest seasons of their life. When I asked them if it was calming down a little bit now that Hattie was getting older, they both started laughing. This is what I love about […]

Knoxville Gardens Engagement The weirdest thing happened at this Knoxville Gardens Engagement Session. We were shooting along the gravel road that cuts right through the middle of the gardens, and these two teenagers were walking through throwing rocks. I didn’t think that much about it when they were more than 50 yards away from us. […]

Knoxville Botanical Engagement I shoot Knoxville Botanical engagement sessions a lot. I mean, it is one of the prettiest, largest, most diverse parks/gardens in Knoxville. So it’s no wonder why people want their pictures taken there so much. It’s always gorgeous, but on the day of Caitlin and Billy’s engagement session, the sun was especially […]

Knoxville Botanical Gardens 6 Month Session I want to provide a little encouragement for all the parents of colic-y babies out there. Meet Hannah Lloyd. This is her Knoxville Botanical Gardens 6 month session and she was colic. In case you are not a parent, colic is gastrointestinal issues in babies that make them super […]

6 Month Photos I can’t decide who 6 month Eylan looks like more on the outside. She definitely has her daddy’s tan skin tone and her mommy’s sweet smile but everything else is a perfect mixture of Austin and Nikki. But when it comes to her personality, she is exactly both her mom and dad. […]

Downtown Knoxville Engagement Session Mariah and Mitchell are from the Cleveland, TN area but drove up to Knoxville to have their engagement photos taken with their puppy. When we were discussing locations, Mariah had a more formal outfit in mind that she thought would look better in an urban backdrop… so of course I immediately […]

Old North Knoxville I was running through Old North Knoxville one day and came across these beauties. Have I mentioned how much I love this city???
