These three will become a family next year when Savannah & Mike get married and I can't wait to be a part of their day!! We met early on a Saturday morning, 7:30am, for photos in downtown Asheville right across from the courthouse. The benefits of shooting this early is there was no one around but us. We had the gorgeous space all to ourselves and the light was absolutely PERFECT. I loved their choice of outfits. Here are a few of my favorites from their downtown family session!!
I met the Lance family at their home in Candler. They had such a beautiful spot for photos all around their home. Here are some of my favorites from their family session!!
Lisa contacted me a month ago to schedule a family session with her sisters and brothers and their family. We met in south Asheville at the NC Arboretum. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your family!! I enjoyed meeting all of you!!
Say hello to the Mackey Family! We met at their grandfather's barn for a fun family photo session. The boys had matching shirts that said "Big Brother and Little Brother"...so cute. It was great meeting your family!!
Say hello to the Rice Family. They are a sweet family who loves God and love each other. I met them at their home in Candler to do a family session. Your kids are growing up way too fast! It was great to see you all again!! Thank you for letting me photograph you!!
Tomorrow it will 5 years since you left this earth and went to your heavenly home. The pain is still real. I don’t talk about it much, but it is my way of dealing with the heartache. When I think about you, the tears come. I miss you so much it hurts. What I wouldn’t give for one last hug, one last smile, one last kiss, one last laugh. What I miss the most are the phone calls, from a couple a day to six or seven a day. You were my first phone call in the morning and my last at night. I miss my shopping buddy, my best friend, my encourager, my comforter, my prayer warrior, Nana to my babies, my hysterically funny mama. I have so many memories of us together and that I am grateful for. I had you in my life for 64 years and you will forever be in my heart. I will never forget the last moments I had with you holding your hand, waiting for Jesus to free you from the pain and suffering. I will always be eternally grateful to God for allowing you to be my mama. The words from this poem seemed to fit exactly what you were to me. I only hope I can be half of the woman you were, a woman who loved God, who loved her family and who showed Christ's love to others. I love and miss you mama!!
A Godly Mother
A Godly mother is a treasure
A gift more precious than gold
Her children rise up and call her blessed,
That we might live joyful, Godly lives
In a troubled world of strife.
Her heart is like his holding us close
No matter how far we roam,
And her arms are always open wide…
To forgive and welcome home.
Her hands are busy molding our lives
From the moment we are born…
Planting seeds, loving, disciplining,
Even when weary and worn.
Her feet are always careful to go
Where her child can follow there…
How could we thank our mother enough
For her tender loving care?
A Godly Mother fervently prays
For that child she loves so much,
For she knows the fruit of her vineyard…
Depends on the Master’s touch
And in high esteem do hold.
Her love is like that of our Savior
Who sacrificed his own life…
Meet Keela, Brian and Brady! This session was originally scheduled as a maternity session, but God had other plans. Brady came a bit early and so we turned our maternity session into a newborn/family session. Brady was one-month-old when we photographed her with her mom and dad and she did great. Leave some love on the blog for this sweet family!!
I love photographing this family each year when I head to Maine to see my family. We worked in family and senior portrait shots for Mariah...She'll be next on the blog. Thank you Blaisdell family for letting me once capture some memories for you!!
I had the privilege of photographing this sweet family a few weeks ago at the NC Arboretum. The boys were so adorable and had so much energy. Talk about cuties, absolutely handsome little fellas.
I met up with the Plemmons family for a quick family photo session in Leicester, NC. We had beautiful mountain views, hay bales and an old car that was used as part of our session. I enjoyed meeting your family and hope you enjoy your images. Thanks so much for letting me photograph your sweet family!!
