Asheville is an amazing city to visit and I get many requests each year to photograph families while they are visiting our fair city. Each Asheville photo shoot comes with a phone consultation where we can discuss your session in detail. In the meantime, though, families, large and small, will benefit from the FAQs below.
WHERE SHOULD WE HOLD THE PHOTO SHOOT?
If you are renting a private home or staying in cabins, it might be possible to hold the photo shoot on the property. Their website most likely shows photos of the interior and grounds.
If that isn’t an option, most families prefer to be outdoors, so do you prefer an urban location like Downtown, River Arts District or charming Montford neighborhood? If you prefer a natural location, Linnae has many spots to choose from that showcase our lakes, rivers, mountains and/or our grassy pastures.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
For the family group shots, everyone does not need to wear the exact same clothing, just choose 2 or 3 main colors. Examples – blue jeans/light blue and white, brown/ivory with pops of orange, or use bright colors green, blue and purple.
It looks great to mix solid colors with patterns. Don’t be afraid of bold colors and rich textures. Prints and patterns can also work well in small doses like polka dotted socks, flowered scarves or paisley vests. Check out my Pinterest page of some examples.
HOW WILL WE VIEW OUR PHOTOS?
About a week or so after your photo session, you will be sent a link to view your images in an online gallery. You will also receive a handy guide that contains ordering info and prices.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE DO WHILE WE ARE IN TOWN?
