It has been on my bucket list for some time to create portraits of a dancer. I even put it out on Facebook “Hey Universe, I’d love to photograph a ballerina, please and thank you”. Well, a few weeks later, I received an email from this dancer’s mother with interest to have her portraits made with Studio 828 Photography here in Asheville.
ELATED! [insert photographer happy dance here]
Thank you Autumn!
Do you have interest in a portrait session with Studio 828 Photography? I would love to shoot for you!
Shooting for young women is ALWAYS some of my favorite photography work. As a young woman myself I was a part of a youth theatre and education program, The Source Teen Theatre) and it was here where I learned that knowledge and performance are amazing tools for the youth of our society. Allowing tweens and teens to discover their own light brings about such amazing transformations both in imagery and in their own person.
Do you remember being in middle and high school? Do you remember the drama? The bullying? The cliques? There is so much happening in a teen’s life and oftentimes, these young adults can feel powerless, and lost in the crowd. By giving these young people an opportunity to stand out and star in their own performance, you give them the power to not only be involved in the vision for their shoot (preparing their outfits and communicating their own dream of being photographed) but, you are also trusting them to be that star. When you trust your kids, they learn that they can trust themselves and their own instincts. It is absolutely incredible to watch that transformation take place. You can see it as their confidence grows during the shoot.
Last summer was the last time I had an opportunity to shoot for a young woman so I am sooooo grateful Shelby and her Mom found me! While I do require that a parent/guardian be on set for any shoot with a client under 18 years of age, I think Shannon was just as excited as her daughter! We had so much fun on set and her pictures are beautiful! Thank you so much for reminding me how incredible it is to shoot for teens.
She looks amazing doesn’t she? One of my favorite aspects of shooting for seniors in Asheville is they are at the most, perfect time in their lives. Their future is directly in front of them and the hope that future provides in anyone’s life…it is simply mesmerizing to the rest of us. Graduating from high school is such a great achievement in a young person’s life. It is their stepping stone to adulthood. College, careers, accomplishments, relationships, dreams coming true.
At Studio 828 Photography, we tailor each senior photography session to you, the client. Do we shoot in studio? Of course! We also go out into the community WITH you to YOUR favorite places.

All you have to do is reach out and tell us how you dream of being photographed. Don’t settle for second best. Document your senior year with the photoshoot of your dreams!
Congratulations Danielle! So excited to be your senior photographer!

As I was recently in Sarasota, one of the shoots I am soooo grateful for is this Saturday afternoon I spent with Madeline. Sure, we’re related (can you tell? haha!), but this shoot also meant Mads and I could spend some time together catching up about her life, her first year as a high school student at Riverview High School, the Kiltie band, boys, family aaaaand we got to have some creative “Madeline is a model because gosh darnit she’s pretty” photo shoot time to boot!
Thanks for coming out to play Mads! Hope you enjoy the images!!!
Cat Ford-Coates is not your average senior photographer. She is creative, focused and treats each client with the utmost care and attention not found with other Asheville photographers.
Creative, heartfelt and sincere. These are words often used to describe Studio 828 Photography in Asheville, North Carolina, New York and Sarasota, Florida. We are available to photograph your wedding anywhere in the world.
Our clients are looking for heirlooms, for artwork verses snapshots burned onto a cd. This is of course what draws them to Studio 828 Photography as their wedding photography company.
Studio 828 Photography provides wedding coverage primarily in Asheville, NC but also in the surrounding areas of Hendersonville, Brevard and Charlotte. In addition, we are available for weddings in Sarasota Florida, new York City and beyond.
Not looking for a wedding photographer? We are also available for senior and boudoir photography. Email for your appointment today.
We thought it would be nice on this incredible Autumn afternoon to wander around the NC Arboretum and capture some pretty. I teamed up with one Rachel Archer of Rachel Archer Photography who happened to already have a great relationship with Brooke as a model! What’s that? Can you say Senior pictures? OK! I’d love too!
I had a lot of fun editing Brooke’s images (as you can see). I have been testing out different editing techniques (as my editing tends to fall into the style of the 3rd image down) as senior styles change from year to year. Again, too much fun with you ladies. Brooke, you made it easy!!!
