Show Me A Smile Photography

Types of Photography: Child, family, and senior

I’m Nicole Blanchard of Show Me a Smile Photography. I’m a mom to four great kiddos, adventure seeker, and photographer of all things beautiful (that means you). I love strong coffee, dark chocolate, and amazing photos. You’ve come to the right place because there are lots of outstanding photographers featured here!

Photo sessions should be fun, playful, and capture the true personalities of each family member as well as family interaction. It makes my heart happy that so many of my clients tell me how much fun they had and littles don’t want our time together to be over. When you look at a photograph, you remember the feeling you had when it was taken. That’s why it’s important to me to be sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time. Of course, this makes for the best photos too!

Everyone should love their photographer, so take some time to look at websites and social media accounts, ask questions, and connect. Find someone who has the style and personality that is perfect for your family. And if I happen to be that someone, I would be honored to be a part of telling your story.


Annette Heck Photography

Annette Heck Photography

Types of Photography: Families, seniors, & individuals. fine art school portraits, and family films.

As a mama, I understand how quickly these kiddos grow and how much life changes in a blink. Try as we might, we can’t slow down the hands of time… But. I can help you stop time, even if only for a moment. Together, we’ll capture images that preserve the heart-melting cuddles, the belly laughs, and your too-beautiful-for-words love. It’s these priceless, fleeting, moments you’ll relive every time you look at your images. Images you, your kids, and, one day, their kids will treasure… forever.

I’m Annette Heck and I use my experience as a photographer, homeschooling mama, & former child/family therapist to make your entire photoshoot process stress-free and enjoyable. From booking all the way to gallery delivery, I’ll take care of the details so that you can focus on your family. My clients tell me that they love how I put them and their children at ease all while efficiently capturing their family’s authentic connection and joy. My goal is for our session to feel like a family playdate with your kids saying, “that was fun!”. All the while, we’ll create images you will love.

I offer a variety of sessions, including seasonal minis. Styling consultation is also available to all clients at no charge. Subscribe for first access to minis & more: Let’s stop time and capture your family’s story through beautiful images.


Kelley Hoagland Photography

Kelley Hoagland Photograhy

Types of Photography: Family, Newborn, Senior and Classic Children’s Heirloom Portraits.

My name is Kelley Hoagland and ironically, my journey as a photographer began when I failed to schedule a newborn session for my firstborn. Oops! I was so focused on getting her here that it wasn’t on my radar.  When no one had room for a last minute booking, I took the portraits myself and was bitten by the photography bug.

So why do moms want to work with me? My clients are typically motivated by 3 reasons: 1) They value photography and specifically love my timeless, bright, warm, true-tone style. 2) They want a photographer who knows how to work with children.  With a decade of experience as a pediatric occupational therapist AND as mom of 3, I have learned many skills and tricks that I put to work to help children participate and have fun during the session. 3) They want a photographer who will collaborate with them to plan a beautiful session.  I get it: planning a location, wardrobe, posing, prepping your family, and then choosing what to do portraits afterwards is an added stressor to an already busy life. My goal is to lessen the burden by being hands on in helping guide my clients through the process.  I also offer a variety of gorgeous luxury prints, wall art and albums to choose from after the session.


Christian Michelle Photography

Types of Photography: Lifestyle portraits for all aspects of family life including maternity, newborn, cake smash, milk bath, milestone, and more!

Hello from one mama to another! My name is Christian and I am a family photographer who feels like family so that you’re free to be yourself in photos.

Why should you choose a family photographer who feels like family?

Because when you think about it, your family photographer is one of the first to find out when you’re pregnant or planning a special surprise for Grandma. She’s invited into your home for lifestyle newborn sessions and is one of the first to hold your new baby. You want someone who takes the time to get to know you and can make you and the kids feel comfortable enough to be your true selves even when the camera is out. You want me.

My sessions are full of laughter and fun, just like families! I use games and jokes to bring out genuine smiles and emotions from everyone, even Dad! In addition to family photos, I also specialize in children’s photography including cake smash, milk bath, and other milestones both in my in-home studio and on location. Let’s connect and create your perfect session!

I have a home-based boutique studio located on Signal Mountain and specialize in newborn, baby, and maternity portraits. I offer my clients a very customized portrait experience that is tailored to the family’s vision for their portrait needs.
