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
I'm an artist living in rural western NC. I photograph weddings, write poems, paint, create art and parent my eleven-year-old son. I love the smell of the earth after a rainstorm, the heat of old buildings on a summer night, and the crunch of new snow underfoot... life is filled with passions, everywhere!
Our lives are a series of breaths punctuated and defined by emotional strength. I am an artist, photographer, painter, poet, and parent. I seek to create images that are important to you and me. As your wedding photographer, I narrate the story of your day with images in an attempt to bring back the scent of the flowers, the feel of the sunshine, the rush of your breath after that first dance... connect with me and let's talk about how you want to remember your moments...
