I visited my hometown, Tallahassee, last year for the first time in many years. I was visiting for an old friend from high school’s baby shower. While I was there I took photos of another friend and her new baby...
As your Biltmore Family Photographer, I know the estate very well and can find the best spots for your vision and lighting. The Biltmore Estate is one of the most beautiful places in Western North Carolina. If you’re visiting in the area and want family photos there, I recommend getting day passes. That way not only will you have family photos at a gorgeous location but you can spend the day touring the house, going to the farm, and enjoying the grounds. Another option is to get Gardens and Grounds passes. This allows you to enjoy the Biltmore property but doesn’t include the house tour.
The Rose Garden is one of the most impressive spots at the Biltmore. Each season it features different flowers. These were taken during their October Garden, but they’ve got roses around September and Tulips around April. They also have a Conservatory for year round, even rainy day garden enjoyment.
Simple, Timeless, Joyful
My philosophy whether taking newborn photos, maternity, family or grandparents is to let the personalities of the people shine through. I want you to look back at your pictures years later and remember what it felt like snuggling your little ones. I want your faces to be the focus. I don’t use a lot of props or bright, bold colors because I want simplicity to allow the natural beauty of love and connection to be the focus. I want your photos to be featured on the walls of your home for years to come- not only on your facebook page for a day. So I want them to stand the test of time.
