{The Jenkins} Fletcher Family Session

IMG_2664.JPG

Fall is my favorite season and for good reason! The colors, the cool crisp air and the lots and lots of family photo sessions like this one! This is the Jenkins fam and they are some of my favorite people! We went out on a very windy and chilly evening, but despite the cold, they still rocked it. The love between them is so beautifully evident and I enjoyed capturing them so much.

Plus, all that gorgeous red hair! I mean come on! Are they not the cutest thing ever???!!!!

{Allie Marie}

IMG_2589.JPG

Allie Marie and I became friends several years ago and instantly connected. Her sweet nature, her infectious smile and vivacious personality make her one of my sweetest friends. We came together and had a blast planning her creative session. I knew I wanted it to really reflect her and all the things I love about her. We found a beautiful location in Fletcher, North Carolina that had beautiful Autumn foliage, a sweet little path and it was just the perfect setting. Between the unique location, the fun outfit choices and this sweet gal, it was one of my favorite sessions to date!

{The Ovies}

This family couldn't be any cuter if they tried! It was such an honor spending some time with them this Fall at the Carl Sandburg home in Hendersonville, NC. The grounds of that place are so picturesque and beautifully capture that Autumn in the mountains theme. 

When I met them the evening of their session, it was like we'd been friends for a while. We had the best time laughing and telling stories in between the clicks of the camera and I left their session feeling so happy that I had the chance to meet them. Their family is seriously the sweetest!

{The three amigos}

Every now and then you have to get out and just have fun! So the plan was to go out with two of my sweet friends, Alli & Ashlyn and just explore downtown Asheville with my camera. Aside from having the best time together, I think the photos say it all.

{Ian + Rachael} Hatcher Gardens wedding

These two lovebirds are seriously some of the most wonderful people I've had the honor of meeting! Rachael reached out to me about a month before her wedding day in Hatcher Gardens in South Carolina and I just remember being so excited about capturing their intimate ceremony in this beautiful setting.

What I loved about this wedding was the intimate setting, with only about 50 or so of their closest friends and family. And I could instantly tell how loved this couple is and how in love with each other they truly are. It was such an honor to be apart of this special day.

{Kyle + Nicole} An Adoption Announcement

Kyle and Nicole are two very sweet friends of mine and they are on an adoption journey! I was so excited when they asked me to photograph their announcement! We went out to the beautiful Beaver Lake area in North Asheville and beat the rain. 

i am so excited for these two as they search for the one they will call their own! I can't wait to watch this family grow!

{Joe + Lauren} Taylor Ranch Wedding

Joe and Lauren are some of my favorites! Their day was simply spectacular! It was a gorgeous day on the beautiful Taylor Ranch in Fletcher, NC and it was the absolute perfect backdrop to the beginning of their forever.

And their love truly radiates between the two of them. Young love in its purest and finest form.

{Drake + Heather} Downtown Asheville Engagement

Drake and Heather. These two have such a special love for one another and it was so evident when I got to spend time with them during their engagement session in downtown Asheville. Although this is technically their engagement session, they did go and get married at the courthouse a few weeks before their session because of Drakes military schedule. 

I was honored to be chosen to capture their sweet love and want to thank Drake for his service to our country. Drake and Heather, I truly wish you both the very best!

{Tim + Ellie} Beaver Lake Engagement Session

These two. Oh my goodness where do I begin?? Tim and Ellie are some of my sweetest friends and when they recently got engaged and they asked me to do their engagement session I was like "Oh my gosh YES!!!" Haha!

We found a couple of really cozy spots over in the Beaver Lake community here in Asheville. It was a gorgeous summer night, the golden hour was upon us and between the bird sanctuary, the calm lake, the colorful canoes and the fabulous twinkling umbrella, I'd say it was a perfect occasion! 

I just adore young love and I can't wait to watch these two walk down the aisle next May! Celebrating this sweet occasion with them was an honor.

{The Babak's} Family Biltmore Gardens Session

This sweet family is just the cutest! And when Alena came to me wanting a portrait session done at the Biltmore Estate gardens, I knew it would be lovely! The azalea garden was in full bloom for us and I couldn't have envisioned a more colorful backdrop!  

The Biltmore Estate is one of my favorite places to take pictures because of the grandness of everything! It truly is a stunning place! And we had so much fun running around this gorgeous garden!

{Brooke + Lacey} Sisters Session

These two lovely ladies are my beautiful cousins Brooke and Lacey! They are sisters and more than that, best friends. They do everything together. So when when my family and I flew out to visit them in LA I knew we had to do some fun beach pics with these two! 

We strolled down to the beautiful El Segundo beach one evening and just had a ton of fun! These two are so cute and I admire their friendship and sisterhood so much. They recently both started attending college over the past two years, so they don't get to see each other as often as they used to, but that just makes their time together all the sweeter!

{Lynn} Boho Session

My friend Lynn and I have been friends for 9 years now and one of our favorite things to do together is to go out and do creative sessions! We are always chatting about the next fun thing we could go do and our minds go crazy with all kinds of ideas! And this session was no exception! 

We ventured up the Blue Ridge parkway and reached the top on Sams Knob. It quickly became one of my favorite places to shoot, not only because of the stellar views, but this place was tucked away on a mountainside and it made for the most fun exploration date! 

And the beauty resonated with our fun boho theme! And then there were sparklers! As I said before, our minds just went crazy with fun ideas!

{The Wilcox Family}

This is the Wilcox family! When Monica contacted me, she told me about her sweet family and her one year old little boy and I couldn't wait to meet them! We drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway and found the coziest little spot. This is the reason I love family sessions. Being that I have a little one year old little boy myself, I know how important it is to capture these memories because they really do grow up so fast.

{The Mett Family}

I have photographed this beautiful family for 2 1/2 years now and it has been so wonderful getting to know them! Crystal and Zach first came to me when she was pregnant with her now 2 year old son Parker. This was my 5th session with this adorable family and I have absolutely loved getting to watch Parker grow up in front of my camera! He is just the sweetest little boy! 

 

At the end of our session, he grabbed my hand and we walked back up the hill together. I was so smitten lol! He is such a little charmer! Happy 2nd birthday little guy!
