The flawless faces of beautiful children

I am a lucky girl. When “playing with my camera” takes me to a sprawling property, situated in front of these beautiful faces, I cannot complain. It’s not hard, really. Engage the kiddos, chat with them, be silly. I’m not scary or overwhelming, so they don’t mind when I require a little of their time. For these siblings in particular, they are… Read more →

What to wear for your family photos

A few days before a family photo session, I’m often asked the same question: What should we wear?  It’s a great question, especially when there are a couple of parents, a couple of a kids, the occasional pet… yeah, fair question. You want to look your best, but what does that even mean?

I have a special family in mind for this place, so I wanted to make sure my instincts… Read more →

Watkins Family photo shoot

Sherrod family photo shoot

Last week I drove to Lake Junaluska to take photos of one of my favorite families. Jimmy was ordained in the United Methodist Church and, though I didn’t go to the ceremony, I captures moments in the aftermath when the family of four had some down time. Cuteness abounds in these tiny faces! It’s a privilege to document their little… Read more →
