The Crowsons: Forest Costumed Family Portraits | Asheville NC

Every family has something that makes them unique. Well, this one-of-a-kind family has not one, but several things that make it unique. Personally, I’m an authority on the uniqueness of this family – and I might even use a different word – crazy. I should know because I see this family just about every day, and I’ve seen six of these children within just hours of being born. I’ve watched almost every child take his first steps or talk his first word. I’ve held them all and supervised coloring activities. I’ve taken them on walks and played with them. I’ve fought over breakfast with them and sat with them as they do their school.

Hannah & Joanna | High School Seniors


Remember Hannah and Joanna from last year? Well, the girls decided they wanted to do a shoot together in the spring, and we decided to do it at our local arboretum.  Friday dawned a beautiful sunny day (which was delightful, because our spring and pre-spring so far has been very cloudy!) so of course we had to battle harsh light, but I think the pictures turned out really well!

This is no longer experimenting.

Well, ACTUALLY…it is, but I’ve seriously taken so many portraits now that I feel like I’ve got the hang of the portrait thing. I’ve photographed all of my cousins PLUS maternity pictures of my aunt! (And I get to do newborn pictures in January!) Now, I know that by now, you probably think that my blog is turning into a photography blog. Certainly three out of the six posts I published within a little more than two weeks ago have been photography, but I can’t help it! I present new ones to you today only for two reasons. One: I’ve had school, y’all, school (insert terrified face), two: I have less time (Because of SCHOOL) and therefore three: Less blog post configuring. Which means that I fall back on easy-to-make posts, like photography posts. It’s a crime, I tell you, a regular crime. I just need to sit down, write out some posts and get on with it! I shouldn’t hide behind school. Oh well, I guess you know what I’LL be working on now!

All that being rambled, I present to you some more portrait photography.

Senior Portrait Sessions 2016-17


I am super excited for this coming school year! Not because I am graduating, but because I have practically nagged the two friends of mine who are graduating to death. You see, since I now have a dSLR, and I have been working on my photography skills…..well, I wanted to take their senior portraits! And guess what? They both consented. I’m jumping up and down (okay, not really. the dignity of a rising junior must be kept 😉 with excitement because I love photography, I love my friends, and…I RARELY EVER GET TO PHOTOGRAPH PEOPLE! So this post is mainly for them, but if you are a rising senior this year and interested getting your senior portraits done, this should help if you have any questions! I’ve done a lot of research for this.
