for authentic, loving and connected images that make your heart sing! Located in Asheville, North Carolina.
Yippee! You are finally going to be able to round up your extended family members in the same place, at the same time. Perhaps you live in Asheville or maybe all of you will be visiting from out of town. You might be gathering for an 80th birthday, a 50th wedding anniversary or a long-awaited reunion.
As you pack a suitcase filled with matching outfits for your family photo shoot, you may ask, “Is it really worth it?”
While the logistics of getting everyone together and "on board" can be challenging, just know that this is your tribe. The people who love you best.
Getting your dramatic aunts, crazy uncles, wild kids, and tired grandparents together and smiling all at the same time seems nearly impossible, and not at all fun BUT trust me, we will make it fun!
It's definitely worth the extra effort. Your photo session experience will be easy peasy and you’ll end up with amazing pictures of all your cRaZy love ones together.
Anyone can take photos nowadays, right? But it takes a special kind of photographer to truly capture you, your family, and your connection in a unique artistic manner.
Only an experienced (25+ years) photographer, like myself will be able to provide you with: a phenomenal experience, a session info guide, styling tips so you look amazing, expert management of all the people and groupings; posed and artistic, lifestyle candids.
I’ll capture all the special relationships within your crazy, chaotic family in a fun and relaxed manner. Your spouses won’t have to just “grin and bear it”. The kiddos will have so much fun, they’ll feel they’re on a play date. And best of all, you’ll end up with swoon-worthy photographs that you’re proud to hang over your fireplace.
Your family reunion photo shoot can take place at your home, rental home or one of the many beautiful outdoor spots that I love to use.
No matter the location, I’ll weave in and around the happy chaos of your large family to capture the special relationships and moments unfolding. This will be the family outing unlike any other.
I’ll shoot a mixture of posed and candid shots capturing the WHOLE family. You will end up with a wonderful variety of photos with the whole extended family, shots of each individual family/couple, the grandchildren together and by themselves, grandchildren with grandparents, etc. The possibilities are endless!
This is a great session for capturing the whole crew and for getting beautiful photos of just your immediate family!
Shhh… I have a secret to tell you! I have a superpower. I’m able to channel your kid’s natural exuberant energy by using movement and play. This keeps the session very relaxed and fun. Your kids will feel like they’re on a play date, not at a super boring photo shoot. My goal is to “not” get them to sit still – which means you can relax, too!
Since I live in this beautiful mountain city that everyone wants to visit,
a third of the families I photograph are tourists.
This means I’ve gained experience and developed special practices that are geared specifically towards families, like yours,
that are visiting my fair city. I'll be able to guide you through this experience and point out things you may not have even considered.

"With a little one, getting good portraits can be difficult at times but she made it fun and relaxing. Linnae was very informative of what we could expect prior to our appointment and continuously reassuring us that we could relax and allow our toddler to do his own thing while still getting the shots we wanted."
