BOOK A SESSION

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 once in a lifetime shoot with a newbie or amateur?








Why choose me?

Anyone can take photos nowadays, right? But it takes a special kind of photographer to truly capture you with your curvy new body, your family, and your sweet new babe 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-to-be!) has a blast and all the while making sure you look like the goddess that you are. 


















This won't be some rinky-dink
photo shoot with an iphone.

Making authentic moments happen during a photo shoot is one of the hardest parts of being a lifestyle photographer, but after 9 years 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 and we'll mix this up with movement, prompts and even games if you have children. This creates natural and fun poses.













Kids don't have to behave perfectly.

My job as a photographer is to make you look and feel amazing during your photo session. To capture all the love and excitement of this memorial time. Then you can put on your comfy clothes, kick your legs up and eat chocolate the rest of the day! You will be so happy that you moved past your discomfort, sleep deprivation and doubts!






You'll look amazing.

Carrying and giving birth to your child may be the most important event in your life and it goes by in a flash.
You may worry that you won’t look good, if you’re not a size two supermodel.

This is a new life you’re carrying.
It’s more than just a bump.
I want each of you uncomfortable, belly growing mamas to realize
how beautiful your belly is and how magical this time really is
even if you are not “feeling” it.
Capturing how beautiful you are
while expecting your baby is one of my specialties.

If the images resonate with you,
then just scroll on down to the very bottom and fill out the contact form! 

Even though I'm a creative,
I'm not the air-head scattered type.
Instead I'm very organized and thorough.
I know you're busy and your to-do list is longer than my arm
so I've make this entire photo session process easy, peasy!
You'll get a beautifully printed magazine that will help you prepare,
a pre-session phone consultation and you can choose to see your finished images in person where I can walk you through the steps, 
or for the DIY types, you can view your images online.

A LOVE NOTE
from the

McCarson Family

"Previous family portraits were rather stressful for us as the photographers made us feel rushed and tense. Linnae, on the other hand, was very laid back, took her time, and sincerely put forth an effort to capture the best shots of our family and my bulging belly."

A LOVE NOTE
from the

Kind Family

"Linnae is both professional and personal. I wanted to get my baby's pictures taken and yet I don't always like being in the spotlight myself. She made us all very comfortable. Even my husband was able to be himself and goof off a bit!"

A LOVE NOTE
from the

Warsch Family

"With a newborn and two young children, 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 kids to be kids."
