"From Fancy to Fierce...

This is exactly how Billie made my daughter feel at her senior photo session and her extreme add on session.

Although it was so hot outside, Billie never complained and was extremely accommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure that my daughter's vision for her photos at the Biltmore Estate shined through. She really listened to Katy and brought out her whimsical, dramatic, fairy like side, and made her feel so beautiful! We all laughed and had the best time. Even some happy tears were shed.

It's not everyday that you come across someone who truly loves what they do, and the people they are working with. Thank you Billie for capturing the essence of my sweet girl, for all of your hard work, and for treating us like family. It's going to be such an exciting year!”

Katy's was one of my absolute favorite sessions of the year last year!  Katy and her mom, Melissa, are both so much fun to hang out with.  And not only are they super fun, they are also some of the kindest people I know.  I have LOVED getting to know them throughout this past year of Katy being a part of my 828Senior Model team.

Katy wanted to shoot her pictures at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.  Her session took place in July, and it was one of the hottest days that I shot on last year.  We were melting in the heat and humidity.  But Katy didn't let that stop her from looking absolutely amazing.  She didn't let the heat ruin her fun!  She danced all over the Biltmore gardens like no one was looking!  ♥  I love that about her personality.  We even pretended she was a princess for a minute in the Biltmore rose gardens.  ☺

And then after feeling fancy at the Biltmore, we headed back to the studio for the fierce part of her session.  We shot an Extreme "Sports" session for her, only not as an athlete.  As a drum major!  Pretty cool pictures from this part of the session too!   

All in all, it was an amazing, beautiful session that I will remember for a very long time.  The portraits we created together truly showcase Katy's personality.  Images that I hope she will treasure for many years to come.  Images she will show her own little girl someday as proof of how amazing she was when she was in high school.  ☺
