NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A Tennessee mother expecting her second child will have one awesome pregnancy photo to share after a storms provided a great backdrop for the photo shoot.

Misty Murphy is 27 weeks pregnant and expecting her second child. To mark the pregnancy, Murphy says she went to Facebook in search of a photographer. She found Tracy Hibben, founder and photographer for Just Another Mom Photography in Knoxville.

The two arranged for a photo shoot this past Sunday and received an unexpected backdrop. "We started taking photos around 6 p.m. and we knew it might rain but that was pretty much it," Hibben says. Utilizing a few of the 70 gowns Hibben has at her disposal for expectant mothers, she decided to take Murphy to a hill in Oak Ridge which provides great sunset photos.

"On one side we had the sunset but then we saw the storms in the background and decided to take a few pictures," Hibben says. After getting a look at the images, Murphy says she thinks the photos are "amazing."

Hibben, whose been a photographer for five years and mother of her own four children, says it's just another example of how mothers should remember how beautiful they are. "Usually when you're pregnant you feel down on yourself because you've gained some weight and its great to show moms and remind them how beautiful they are," Hibben says.

Hibben says she is based in Knoxville but travels to locations for sessions, even traveling as far as Las Vegas.
