brianna spring mini session

Here in Asheville, NC, spring always officially begins with thousands of blooming trees springing to life all over. You can basically pull over to the side of the road anywhere and clusters of forsythia and flowering trees are there! Briana and I decided to take advantage of the flowering shrubs and trees in my neighborhood on a nice sunny day last week.


Brianna brought along her ukulele and strummed some happy notes.

I just love the sunlight in her hair, and the ivy glowing green in the background!


There’s only a couple more weeks of these blooms left this year, so hurry up and book your spring session now!


katdog couture website release party

This month, my good friend Kati Foster launched her website.  Kati is a talented designer living here in Asheville. Here are some shots from her website release party at Avedian Coast.

The party kicked off with live music and meet-and-greet

A banner with KatDog's new logo hung in the back of the shop and served as a photo booth backdrop. 

KatDog's new logo was also available in t-shirt form! Many (including myself) took advantage!

A local artist painted a live rendering of Kati's logo in a 3-D painting! Too cool!


Another group of local artists, Mermaid Oasis came as Kati's guests to display their unique jewelry and make some delicious crystal-infused punch.  Their cleansing ceremony was one of the most interesting things I've had the privilege of witnessing as a photographer.

The evening would not have been complete without shooting a ridiculous number of silly and sexy photos of one of my favorite models: Na'ama Adiso

Congratulations, Kati!
