Presenting Santa Workshop Experiences this Holiday Season at Brii Cher'ri Photograpy - Ashe County

Christmas may seem so far away but can you believe it is actually less than 80 days away!! It’s time to start thinking about your Christmas plans! Experiences, traditions and memories! One thing I always think about when its almost Christmas time is Santa, well of course right? Who doesn’t! Santa photographs have beena tradition since our little one was born and since we were at the coast we had a photographer there who hosted GORGEOUS high quality Santa Claus Photo Experiences. Nothing like the dreaded mall photo experience and nothing like it quality wise either. These were memories and complete art.

When I moved to the mountains , to Boone and the Ashe County area , I realized there was no one here offering High End , Quality , Gorgeous Santa Claus Sessions that were Art worthy so I knew what I had to do! I needed to offer them myself!

Taylor's Bridal Session : Washington NC : North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Taylor's Bridal Session took place at The Pamlico House , a beautiful old church & Washington State Park in Washington NC. I loved the variety of looks we were able to achieve in such a small little town and how stunning these locations were! 

Taylor was such a sport willing to go to all the different locations and walk throughout the state park to get to the perfect location! I even walked through sand for like a half mile to get some of these shots , and you guys know how I feel about the beach! But let me tell you it was BEYOND worth it and I would do it over and over again if it meant that I could create art like we did here! 
I am so excited to finally be able to share these so go shead and enjoy because Taylor is an absolute beauty !

Truthful Tellings: Let's Get Real no Family is perfect : North Carolina Photographer

I take a lot of photos, clearly that is obvious. I post a lot of photos too, but not half as many as I take, atleast not when it comes to my own family's photos. My child is one, that means he's a mess. Literally & figuratively. He doesn't understand much but he can do lots, and lots of stuff he definitely isn't supposed to.

For Mother's Day I REALLY wanted to get dressed up in our vintage clothes and do family photos. A client had gifted me an adorable vintage outfit for Phoenix and I wanted to make sure it would fit so we had to do photos now. The day comes , so excited. Its smoldering hot so we decide to wait til the afternoon, by then the hubby is tired the child is irritated I'm overwhelmed. Not so exciting anymore right? Now I know what my clients go through. So we load up get down the road realized we forgot the tripod run back to grab it and head out again. Get to our destination and joe top button won't button so that means no bow tie. Great.
Can't find Phoenix's suspenders that went with the outfit ( found out i dropped them when getting the tripod and we ran over them) so no suspenders, no bow tie. Oh and Phoenix's tan shoes were home on the counter. 

I felt like a hot mess, to be fair the whole situation was one and I hadn't even tried to take a photo yet. & then we tried. Valued effort for sure but the child was not about it at all. he would not stand with us or sit with us. HE just wanted to play and run around and climb the vines. It was a big old blasty blast for sure, atleast for him. We gave it multiple attempts tried all the tricks and got some photos. He settled down at the end and sat while we read him a book, but not sure it was the book he was interested in because after his attentiveness we looked in front of us to see a wonderful snake had decided to come join us and was about a foot from us and of course Phoenix was all smiles about that. 

I guess my point is, anyone can fake it, facebook is all about that. Showing perfect lives and photos, But the reality is , my family is just as much of a shit show as yours. My child is insane, he doesn't sit well for photos and he isn't always happy. My days aren't always good and my husband isn't always enthused about the million photos I make him take. But thats okay, being perfect isn't all its cracked up to be or all that fun I'm sure. I am happy to have these photos in which I show that my husband and I can get a kick out of our child being obnoxious instead of getting mad. He is a kid after all and he has the whole world to explore, who are we to stop him?

*** our good photos are below but the few outtakes I posted are pretty great.

Celebrating Earth Day in the Mountains of North Carolina

As all my friends know. I am crazy about being eco, I don't use straws we use reusable bags, we recycle everything we can and reuse as much as possible.

I also push all my friends and family to do so too! I mean I want my son to have a planet to grow up on that isn't completely destroyed by our carelessness and until more people jump on board with realizing we NEED to take strides to change and fix what we have done our children and their children will be the ones who ultimately suffer from our actions! 

So I challenge all of you, to change! Make one change, refuse the straw, bring your own tupperware to dinner out. Use reusable bags instead of plastic or Ask for paper! RECYCLE at home! Its not hard and makes such an impact!

From a Family of Heroes : Phoenix becomes a firefighter for a day

When asked what I thought of my husband being a police officer in one of his interviews my answer was simple " I grew up watching my Dad be a hero, saving people putting others lives before his own, it seemed only right that I marry someone who would do the same."

Phoenix has so many heroes in his life. SO many STRONG figures to grow up around, his grandfather is a firefighter & EMT, his Dad a Police Officer , his God Mother a RD & soon to be Doctor, his Uncle is an Airplane Mechanic, the rest of us are pretty badass as well but you get it, he has a lot to look up to while he grows up! 

This is just the first of many sessions Phoenix will have where he plays the role of one of his heroes. This one is to you Dad . 
I hope you love them. I was supposed to save them for Father's Day but we all know how great I am with surprises!
