FAMILY, child and senior PHOTOGRAPHER

for authentic, loving and connected images that make your heart sing! Located in Asheville, North Carolina.


You might be inclined to go with the cheap photographer but keep in mind that you get what you pay for! In case you didn't know, Asheville sprouts a TON of aspiring photographers. Everyone has to start somewhere, but do you want to chance this very important family event with a newbie or amateur?

Why choose me?

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 has worked out all the steps to a successful family session. I know how to work my fancy camera in all kinds of situations, have a secret sauce method to ensure that everyone (yes, even Dad!) has a blast and all the while making sure you look like the goddess that you are. 

Anyone can take photos nowadays, right? 

Making authentic moments happen during a photo shoot is one of the hardest parts of being a lifestyle photographer, but after all this time as a family photographer, I got it figured out. I’ll tell you my secret…..

…..These heartfelt moments don’t always happen when you want them to…or in the “in between” moments like some photographers claim. I believe in creating the moments.

You'll be guided every step of the way.

Instead of telling you to “act natural” and just hope something interesting happens, I’ll give you specific directions. You’ll know what to do, where to stand and how to act.

During the session, I’ll suggest movement, simple games and prompts as they make room for real reactions. I will capture your family for who you really are. Prompts are fun and easy ways of creating organic movement and allow your family to naturally interact with each other.

Movement, games and prompts, oh my!

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!

Kids don't have to behave perfectly.

from the

Warsch Family

"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."



from the

Rogers Family

"I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the wonderful pics. I still stand in amazement of how you were able to pull out his personality and capture it on film without even knowing him prior to the shoot. You rock and I can't thank you enough!"



from the

Altizer Family

"These are the best family photos we've ever had done! Not only does Linnae know how to capture great pictures, but she makes the experience enjoyable. Halfway through the session my 4 year old asked when we had to start taking pictures :)"



from the

Pratt Family

"Linnae took beautiful photos in our home with very challenging lighting conditions and we are very happy with the product!! I can't wait to have another session with Linnae in the sunshine!"
