You don’t have to go very far into Cades Cove to see its beauty! Sometimes the little ones will get restless before you can get around the entire 11-mile loop, which can sometimes take 3+ hours during the busy season. For those families, we recommend shooting at Sparks Lane and the John Oliver Cabin. The cabin is only 1.4 miles from the beginning of the Cades Cove loop. Sparks Lane cuts through the loop, so you’re back out in no time after you finish your session. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and the horses will be near the road!
We’d love to show you this beautiful section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when you schedule with us for family photography in Cades Cove! To check our availability and book a session with us during your next Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, or Townsend vacation, just click the “Book Now” link in the menu at the top of this page. Our Smoky Mountain photographers look forward to showing you around!
