I just love this image. Sometimes a photo will stick with you over time- with this one, I find myself thinking about it often and it just makes me happy. Alisha & Jacob's little one is now freshly in this world but here I see them full of anticipation, the kind that only new parents are subject to. #walkinthewoods #dontmindmeinthegrassthough #newparents #maternitysession #maternityphotography #babybump #lowangleshot #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

When people get bored during a shoot (yes, it happens- if you're a photographer you'd best learn to expect it and to never take it personally), I like to change things up. "Show me something funny!" or one of my favorites: "let me see your crazy face! I know you have at least one in there!" – are both great ice breakers and easy ways to pep subjects up when the pace of a session starts to drag. These three are some of my favorite folks to photograph because in spite of their utterly distinct personalities they share that sisterly bond that makes them so (photographically) compatible. They click. #nonstoprock #whenyouhavethreeyouareoutnumbered #myfolkshadthree #sorrynotsorry #awesomekids #myclientsarethebest #realmoments #didntrealizetheyweregonnarushthecamera #workedoutanyway #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

Late summer afternoon on the farm, last fall. The peace of these mountains astounds me every time I wander out amongst them- they're gentle and comforting, worn softer by eons of wind, rain, and habitation than their (relatively) young cousins out West. The sense of wisdom and presence is palpable in the earth of the Southern Appalachians, and in the western NC spread in particular. I find myself seeking the calm comfort of the trees and rushing creeks here, especially in tumultuous times. #peaceofthemountains #farmstead #mountainwedding #appalachianwedding #southernappalachians #oldredbarn #nikon #fallmountains #nathanbaerreisphotography
