So as most of you know, we have lots of exciting things in the works right now!! Matt and I have been busy busy busy photographing amazing weddings and engagement sessions!! We’re currently booking weddings for 2015 (just a couple dates left!!) and 2016 both in New England and down in the Carolina’s where our new home will be as of this September!! Piper and I had the opportunity to fly to NC to visit family & friends and to continue laying the groundwork for our move south. While in North Carolina (and South Carolina) I was able to meet with some amazing, talented wedding vendors… I left very very confident that our move south means nothing but good things for our business in the coming years!!!

Piper was long over due for some portraits so I took her to the gorgeous Carl Sandburg home in Flat Rock, NC (10 minutes south of Hendersonville NC). If you haven’t been there it is an absolutely gorgeous estate located in the Blue Ridge mountains of Western NC. Not only is it a perfect spot for your engagement session or family portrait session, they also host weddings!!!

I foresee lots of time being spent at the Carl Sandburg home in the future for engagement sessions and lifestyle family portraiture, it’s super convenient to downtown Hendersonville as well!!

Children especially absolutely love the barn with the baby goats where Carl Sandburg’s wife used to raise her champion dairy goats. You can visit the herd which have access to the area in front of the barn as well as all the pasture land surround. little girl visits with a goat during her baby portrait session Those of you that know Piper know just how obsessed she is with animals!
