Kaya Mae / Puppy Photo Session, Dog Photographer Boone

Kaya Mae is my former ASU (Appalachian State University) Commercial Photography professor’s adorable 4 month old puppy! 

Kaya Mae is a bubbly black lab puppy who doesn’t know a stranger, she’s super smart and totally stole the show during her photo shoot! We all felt like she knew what was going on! Maybe she has a future in modeling?

It was an honor to have been hired to do this session for Cheryl because she had taught me so much during my time at ASU and gave me applicable real-world experience, from second shooting a wedding to assisting on a commercial shoot for Walmart. Cheryl treats all of her students with kindness and care. I have so much respect for her and all of the Commercial Photography professors who have poured into their students with valuable knowledge, wisdom, and advice.

Timber / Puppy Photo Session, Dog Photographer Asheville, NC

This beautiful brown-eyed puppy is Timber. Timber is sweet, smart, adventurous, cuddly, and full of personality. He is a Bernedoodle which is a crossbreed between a poodle and a Bernese mountain dog. Timber is about 4 months old in these photos, weighing around 30 pounds. 

Timber's amazing humans, Brittany and Bart, envisioned his puppy photo shoot to take place in a dense wooded setting and I was thrilled to bring their vision to life. We all had a great time exploring a couple trails around Asheville, chasing light, and playing in the river. It was Timber's first time playing in water and he was a natural! 

I can't wait to see Timber grow and photograph him again in the future. If you'd like to follow Timber's daily adventures check out his Instagram: timberthebernedoodle. 

Meghan / Bridal Portraits, Charlotte NC

Having photography friends is truly the best thing.

Meghan and I became friends in our very first Commercial Photography class at Appalachian State University! Fast forward 5 years, and we're still close friends and often shoot weddings together!

Today, I am throwing it back and reminiscing over her bridal shoot photographed in 2015. I was so honored to do her bridal portraits! If you're looking for an amazing wedding photographer in the Charlotte area, Meghan is your girl - check her out at www.facebook.com/meghansouthernphotography. :) 

Patterson + Kevin / Surprise Proposal at Lake Hartwell, SC

On the first day of Spring, March 20th, Kevin got down on one knee and proposed to Patterson, one of my closest friends! He chose the perfect location overlooking Lake Hartwell: the sun was setting, their families were hiding on a screened-in porch to cheer, and Kevin made sure the day was documented with photo and video (brownie points)! 

I am so thrilled for these two as they start a new journey together...

Cantrell Family / Asheville Family Portraits

I loved photographing the fun-loving Cantrell Family at their beautiful home near Asheville, North Carolina! If you are interested in booking a family session please email julialindholmphotos@gmail.com.

Cuckler Family / Asheville Family Portraits

Tis' the Season for Mini-Sessions! I was honored to photograph the Cuckler family. As I have been recently photographing more families, I've come to a greater realization of how important (though sometimes easier said than done) it is to gather family together for authentic family portraits. Family portraits are some of the most meaningful type of photos you can have, yet they're rarely captured. My goal for 2017 to photograph many more families together to create lasting memories.
