i can’t begin to express my adoration for the mountains of north carolina. being a southern california native, i had never seen the seasons change and had always dreamed of the trees exploding with color and the brisk air of fall… so i did my best to plan our last workshop for asheville, nc in october and my dream finally came to life. swoon! i am still trying to get used to being back to our dry, 90 degree heat here in california, i am craving the east! so this session was one of our themed sessions for my workshop and was photographed in the little town of weaverville, just north of asheville. beryl, kenny and little everett were our darling models and we built the session around their own new lifestyle of creating their own farmstead in the north carolina mountains. they just moved cross country from california in search of the simple life (love this!) so a little pumpkin carving party on a farmstead in celebration of their life change seemed the perfect fit.
