A few months ago, when I was thinking about how I wanted to launch my new brand, I knew that it had to include a giveaway for a portrait session. Gifting photographs to a deserving couple or family has been one of life's greatest rewards for me and Courtney and Mario could not have been more incredible to work with. From our initial conversation when I floated the idea of shooting in Asheville (Courtney didn't even hesitate on that one) to watching them climb out on a ledge overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains (despite her legit fear of heights), this experience was more than I had ever dreamed.
There is something so freeing, so empowering and uplifting about shooting for fun, without any pressure or preconceived expectations. It truly fills me up. A million thank you's to Courtney and Mario for being amazing and fearless and funny and adventurous and just plain wonderful. You two are an inspiration and I'm forever grateful.
