Hey guys! So last week I put out a request for business questions because y’all have contacted me with your small business/photography questions in the past. I got some great questions and today I’m answering them!
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 peroxide highlight job I did on myself. (Don’t ask…long story.) We have quite the history!
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 much enjoyed getting to visit with her and talk shop. 😉
I met lovely Carol when I started to get facials at a nearby medical spa. Carol was one of the aestheticians and she gave me several wonderful facials. As we got to know each other, and I found out she hadn’t had family photos done in years (like TEN, seriously!), we decided she really needed some. Noah, her eldest, just finished his freshman year in college, and Ben just finished his senior year in high school. New photos were a must before any more big changes happened!
Hey, y’all! Today I’ve got the rest of the pictures of our trip up to Allison’s farm. You already saw our Best Friends’ Photoshoot and their Family Photoshoot, and now here are all the pictures from some of the things we did together. We seriously had SO. MUCH. FUN. with Allison’s family. All her siblings are such great sports and patient with people who don’t know how to play games (i.e. my brother and I XD).
When we went up to Allison’s, I offered to do her family’s photos to thank them for letting us come and stay. I’m so glad I did because not only does her family have updated photos now, but I got to spend more time with them. ☺ It was SO HOT and we were all, unfortunately, dripping with sweat, but her parents and siblings were as chill as can be and were just NATURALS in front of the camera. They were the crowning glory of photo subjects!
Last year, I had the opportunity to work with BRO for the first time! Blue Ridge Orthodontics did my braces several years ago, and now my brother goes. I did a shoot for Dr. Roberts’ daughter Emma, and later last year I went and took all of BRO’s new photos! They built a new building and redid their website and wanted updated photos for a fresh look.
