Fashion in Asheville

Minx is a boutique in Asheville that Krista found.  Since she's so small, she has problems finding clothes that fit well (I know...not a problem that many of us have!), but this shop was amazing.  Customer service, something that's often nonexistent, was the absolute best, with the lovely Kathrin showing us around AND being super nice.

Next time you're in Asheville, check it out at 64 North Lexington Avenue..or take a look online at their chic offerings!  Either way, you can't go wrong!

Asheville - Days Six and Seven

It's the end of a vacation...always sad!  The last two days have been so much fun.  I love that I got to do a photo shoot in Asheville, and I can definitely see myself working there in the future.  Although the trip brought colder weather than I would've liked, it was still very enchanting to see snow flurries in March!  Krista and I met such nice people...everyone said, "Oh, move here, move here!  You'll love it!"  What a great recommendation!  The food scene in Asheville continued to amaze us throughout the week.  Dinners at Bouchon and the Black Bird were incredible.  Food and service was both fantastic!  Here are some more photographs...I have additional posts that I'll finish when I get home.  In the meantime, I'm thinking, "When can I go back again?"  Thanks for coming along on this trip!

This afternoon, I had a photo shoot with the cutest one-year-old ever!  Kieran has a great personality, and he was such a good boy while his parents and I moved him from place to place, changed his outfits, and probably just upset his routine in general!  Kieran's grandmother is a client of mine in Dallas, but her son and family live in Asheville.  I loved having the opportunity to shoot here.  Thanks, Brendan, Nea and Kieran...I enjoyed every minute of it!  Here are some of my favorites.

Asheville - Day Five

Today, we visited the historic Biltmore Estate. Built between 1889 and 1895 by George Vanderbilt, it is the largest privately owned home in the United States. George called the 189,000 square foot house his "little mountain escape." The estate covers 8,000 acres, so a visit is not just to see the mansion. We'd hoped to enjoy "Biltmore Blooms" (as in lots of springtime flowers) but instead it was pretty much "Biltmore Bloomless." With cold and windy weather, nothing was really blooming except for inside the conservatory. Those flowers were gorgeous, though, and I had a chance to photograph many orchids that I don't normally get to see. Here are a few of today's photographs...unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside the mansion.
