I am so excited to share these pictures at long-last! My best friend Allison, aided and abetted by my mother and her family, came down for my birthday on the eighth and surprised me! I was so excited, and of course, called up my friend Amy to see if she could come and do a […]

If you want to meet someone who is joyful, driven, an overachiever, smart, and who has a servant’s heart – it’s Sam. Some of you may remember when I did her senior pictures a couple years ago. After Sam graduated from high school – including a course in phlebotomy – she went on a nine-month-long mission […]

When Amy and I got together to do our headshot swap, of course she took some pictures of me. Which was fabulous! I needed an update, per usual. We had such a great time and I love the pictures she took of me! I’m sure you’ll agree that she’s quite talented. Enjoy a few of […]

About a month ago, I had the privilege to meet up with Amy Fullam from Wonder Love Weddings. We met for cupcakes and got to talk shop. It was lovely! I really enjoyed meeting Amy and getting to know her, finding out how she got into photography and such. Amy’s a real traveler, and has […]

A couple weekends ago, my dear friend Allison came and stayed with me at my house! It was wonderful since I’ve been to her farm – so I got to be hostess and show her my farm! We stuffed our faces with food and relaxed (went to my favorite restaurant Fig in Biltmore Village) and it was lovely getting […]

Y’all, today I’m introducing to you a real #bosslady – Crystal Linville, the fabulous hairstylist and owner of the Atrium Salon here in Asheville! She’s the one who fixed a horrible bob I got when I was 4 or 5, who cut my hair when I made the decision to take off 16 inches, and who fixed a […]

Hannah is a good friend of mine, and guess what – she’s also a photographer! The funny thing is, we both became friends years ago, before either of us were interested in photography. Then, at around the same time, we both launched our businesses! Hannah invited me out to coffee for my birthday last week, and I very […]

Allison and I have an unusual friendship. We’re best friends, and yet we live over three hundred miles apart. “What’s so unusual about that?” you might ask. That in and of itself is not out of the ordinary; many best friends have had to move away from each other and keep up their friendship long-distance. […]

I have been taking some photography courses recently and so naturally I wanted to put into play some posing methods I’d been learning when Miss Hannah came over. She was the perfect model to practice on! We discussed the photoshoot and decided to do a modern/asian inspired shoot. I just love the outfits she chose as […]

Here in Asheville, it snows but once a year. Therefore, I always find the need to document such a momentous occasion. 🙂 There is something so peaceful about the snow. Snow in and of itself isn’t really my favorite, because it’s cold and wet, but otherwise? Otherwise, I love the quiet beauty. Not to mention […]
