Have an Asheville family session you will ALL look forward to 

With cell phones cameras constantly at our fingertips, parents are often stuck behind the lens. Suddenly it’s as if you weren’t even there at all!

I bet you’d love gorgeous photography of your crew, but you wonder if it’s worth the effort and money. Will your toddler be in a good mood? Will your husband be on board? Will you end up with any decent photos at all?

Trying to get your family to cooperative and be happy might seem stressful and chaotic, but trust me, my process is easy and my family photo shoots are fun.

Unleash the fun: creative photo shoots for unique families 

During the family session, I’ll suggest movement, simple games and prompts as they make room for real, natural reactions

I have many tricks up my sleeve including, 'Musical Laps' or 'Wiggle, Wiggle' which have never failed at getting the reluctant child to smile.

Families bring their own energy to a shoot. I’ll make suggestions based on what I feel will work well with your family and what will help draw out personalities and connection between family members. Don’t worry, there won’t be any stiff poses here.

No need to ask your child to look at me and say “cheese”. This is the “no-cheese” zone.

"Linnae is so comforting and easy to be around that she really allows everyone to just be themselves. She is A+ at what she does. I especially really appreciate Linnae's skill at knowing exactly when to click to capture seemingly 'un-staged' and real-life images. Our kiddos' personalities really shined, and the experience was just so easy and enjoyable."

Frequently asked questions

Yes! I accept payments for your digital file collections and print products. I also accept payments for the session fee, but you will have to pay it in full prior to our photo session. 

I'll be sending you a Welcome style guide that is filled with fashion tips to help you rock your photo session and if you like, you can show me what you've picked out during our pre-session phone chat. I'll give you my feedback on your choices.  

If there's a 40% chance (or more) of rain, then you can decide if you prefer to reschedule, have the session at your home or take a chance and meet for the session as planned. Sorry, no refunds for rainy sessions. 

"Fun and Games" and "Extended Family" photo sessions can take place at your home, a location of your choice or a one of my favorites spots. My favorite locations include pretty nature, have room to play, explore, and to move around. You can check them out HERE. 

Each location has pros and cons and each has a different look and feel. During your pre-portrait phone consultation, I’ll help you decide which is the best location to tell your family’s story.

"Short and Sweet" Mini sessions take place at Biltmore Lake. You can learn more about this location HERE. 

Absolutely. I love when furry friends join our photo sessions. If we'll be outdoors, just be sure to let me know so we can plan a location that will work well with your dog(s).
