Serious musicians get things done! I love musician portraits for all sorts of reasons- but mostly because it's fun to try to capture the essence of another artist and show it through my eyes. Heidi is driven to pursue her music, and she's great as a consequence of that. Motivation is hard for artists (sometimes) so I love seeing it. #musicianphotography #musicianportrait #focus #strength #followyourpassion #makeyourjoyyourlife #bluesmusician #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

An engagement session is a good way to get to know your photographer before your wedding day! If you are too far away to have an engagement session, I highly advise pulling out some time to talk on the phone- you can get a conversation started by asking questions about wedding day scheduling, or offering ideas for your bridal party shots, but the goal is to just get talking. As a photographer, the more I know about you, the more smooth and effective our time together will be- even if it means we're going to ditch the normal shots and head straight out into the woods! #letsgoforahike #adventurouscouple #uniqueimages #realmoments #beautifulworld #mountainwedding #trysomethingnew #mindthethorns #nikon #naturalbeauty #nathanbaerreisphotography

These two flower girls were a totally adorable part of Lindsay and Alex's wedding in January 2016! Kids are always good for adding a little spice to the day- one good tip for having really young children in your wedding is to include some slightly older ones too! The littler ones will tend to follow the lead of the older ones, and that will sometimes help ease the spontaneous laughter, tears, and stage fright that frequently goes along with having anyone 6 or under in the wedding party. #ashevillewedding #januarywedding #indoorwedding #flowergirls #cutekids #weddingparty #theyheldstilljustlongenough #beforetheceremony #whencanwehavecake #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

Headshots are so fun! I think it may be one of my favorite, just because you're driven to get to know people so quickly-you have to push your clients to reveal parts of themselves and encourage them to trust you at the same time. It's a balancing act, and it's usually high energy and fun! Give me a call if you'd like to get the best possible headshot for your needs! #lovewhatyoudo #greatclientsmakemyday #earlybutawake #passionforphotography #nikon #nathanbaerreisphotography

Heidi is a blues musician based out of western NC. She's the real deal, folks! Go see her if you get a chance. This shoot was specifically for her album "Mockingbird Blues," and she killed it. The final album art was all black and white but I re-edited this one because I felt like it worked in color too. Working with other creative people is a great source of joy for me- the end result of a strong collaboration is always different than my vision but never in a bad way! I love this image. #artistcollaboration #musicianportrait #soloperformer #soloartist #slideguitar #resonator #albumcover #myclientsarethebest #clientsbecomefriends #noschoollikeoldschool #showmewhatyougot #nikon #primelenses #nathanbaerreisphotography
