18 Months!/Asheville Baby Photographer

I can’t believe Piper is 18 months old!  I would normally be sad about her growing up but for some reason, I’m not anymore.  I love seeing her personality develop because it’s really coming out, the feistiness and all.  hehe  I love that life is getting easier as she gets older.  I want her to be able to do what the “big kids” are doing!  This little girl has been poked and prodded and seen by so many specialists and it makes me so sad everything that she has to go through.  But she is still so happy and I know it’s going to make her one very strong lady someday.  She definitely won’t be afraid of pain like her momma!  So these pictures were very simple.  I didn’t buy her any new clothes or really put a whole lot of thought into it.  I think it’s because our walls are overflowing with photos right now, but she deserves great 18 month pictures just like Mya and River and I think these are so beautiful, like she is!  Happy 18 months to one amazing little girl!!





She kept coming up and hugging me so I asked Ryder to please get a picture!  I just don’t have many pictures with me in them with the kids!


What is Matte?!/Asheville Newborn Photographer

If you have looked at my pricing, you will see that I offer color images and then I convert the ones that look best to vintage (matte) and black and white.  You might be asking what is the difference between color and matte.  Well, I thought I would show you some photos with both options.  Matte is what I usually post on my blog because it’s what I love most!  It is sometimes very subtle but adds a little bit of softness to the image.









It’s all about personal preference which is why I offer both.  Which do you prefer?

Precious Girl!/Asheville Child Photographer, Asheville Family Photographer

Last weekend I did a session with a family that I’ve done a couple of sessions for before:  maternity when they were about to have their little girl and then again when she was around 1 year old.  Now she’s 2 and I can’t even believe what a difference a year makes!  She was a photographer’s dream!  She would stand and pose and give me the best smiles!  I loved hanging out with them and her!  I can’t wait to see their sweet baby boy coming up next month!  So here are a few of my favorites!
