Portraits at Sunrise | Asheville, NC


July 16, 2016

Portraits at sunrise are always fun!  Okay, they were probably not the most fun for my daughter who had to be up at 6 on a Friday morning when school was out, but once we were out taking pictures it was fun.  I love taking portraits here in Asheville at sunrise, whether it is on the parkway or downtown.  The mornings are peaceful and usually quiet and there is just something about watching the sun rise and how the light illuminates everything when it is low in the sky.

The great thing about photographing at sunrise is that you usually have the location to yourself and don’t have to work around other people which can make for some really cool shots.  I would love to take your senior pictures or photography your teen, send me a message here and I will send you more information and we can discuss some of your ideas. I love exploring and trying something a little different for senior portraits along with the traditional so if you have something in mind let’s make it happen!  Scroll to the bottom for a little bonus if you schedule your senior  portraits this summer!

I’m Kathy – wedding photographer, mom of 1 daughter & 2 doodles, and avid sunset watcher. Once you’ve gotten to know a little more about me, it’ll be my turn to get to know you as too!! When I work with a couple, we usually end up feeling more like old friends by the time your wedding day arrives – which means a more relaxed, enjoyable wedding day experience for everyone. And when it comes to photo style, you’ll find your photos are vibrant and classic, in true-to-life color and timeless black and white. It’s my honor to serve joyful, authentic couples who want their wedding photos to be as timeless as their vows.
