When the Mitchell family told me that they wanted to do a “10 years later” theme for their family shoot in Asheville, NC, I was super excited! Jenna had the idea to use a chalkboard sign, and the results turned out adorable. We met up just outside of Asheville at my favorite nature background location – a farm I’ve used for several shoots. (Like Caroline’s!) Unfortunately, the skies were threatening rain the whole time we were shooting – and it had previously poured twice! But, we made it through 45 minutes before it started raining again. It even sprinkled in the middle of the shoot, but we all cheerfully held picnic blankets and lighting reflectors over our heads while waiting for the rain to pass.
The Mitchells are going to finish up their shoot in a few days, because the rain kept us from getting all the shots we wanted. Hopefully, we get some better weather so we don’t go home wet! Until then, here are some of the pictures we got from their first shoot.
