The close of another year and, just wow.

The close of another year and, just wow.

I have to pinch myself sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, this year was tough. At times, I wasn’t sure how, if, or when I’d come out the other side but occasionally, you have trouble seeing the forest through the trees. Looking back on 2015, holy cow!

What. A. Year.

One of the greatest parts about my work is that I am able to celebrate the wonderful, and inspiring people who I have the privilege of photographing. I get to meet these amazing women, leading such incredible lives with their families and loved ones and just, even for a moment, show them how incredible and beautiful they are! These women are professionals, artists, home-makers, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and the one thing they all have in common? They are all, each and every one of them, givers. They give of themselves in every way.

Thank you, universe. Thank you for this life. This one, right here! This life where I am so lucky, and so blessed to be able to live a life that I love, creating art with such an amazing community. I am an artist, a mentor, a student, a wife and loving every moment. Cheers, 2016. Welcome.

Here is to another great year. A year I welcome with open arms. A year full of goals, planning, fulfillment, introductions, exodus, learning, abundance, security, and freedom.

Home for the Holidays in Asheville

Happy Holidays my wonderful WNC beauties!

So, let me ask you a question: How many of you have family coming into town for the holidays this year? Parents, sisters and brothers that perhaps you haven’t been in the same room with for 2 years, 5 years, maybe more?

For the first time ever, we are opening up on-location or in-studio family portrait sessions here in Asheville and the surrounding communities the week after Christmas.

We are opening 5 appointments between December 26th and December 30th, with special package pricing to create memories with your family.

OK Cat, how does this work? I know my Mom would LOVE a family portrait of all of us together. How do we make this happen?

Simple! Pick up the phone and give me a call. 828-275-9932 and we will book in your consultation. This can be in our studio in the River Arts district or via Skype. We will discuss your family, what you have in mind, location options, what to wear, when we can schedule your photo shoot, and artwork and package options to suit your family’s needs. We’ll get your appointment confirmed with our calendar and voila! Best. Present. Ever!

Please do get in touch ASAP as I don’t expect these appointments will last for very long.
