The Ely Extended Family Travel Portraits | Highlands NC Family Portrait Photographer

Three of my favorite things combined for The Elys’ portrait session at Ray’s Roost cabin in picturesque Highlands NC: extended family, travel, and photography! I LOVE travel sessions–your family is together, having fun and relaxing in a beautiful location. Why not capture that time with professional portraits? I am available to travel to capture YOUR travels!

The super-fun Ely Family converged in Highlands NC for a relaxing weekend together, laughing over old stories, fly fishing amongst the fall leaves, and just enjoying three generations of love.

Introducing…the Ely Family

Is there a better gift than love and laughter that parents can give their children and grandchildren?

Miss Caroline is the sweetest big sister, and a SO pretty in front of the camera. And can I please have her boots in a big-girl size???

Miss Elizabeth wasn’t so sure about me at first, but once she warmed up: incredible cuteness!!! I love her sweet smile!

Little Miss Anna kept me on my toes! She is a doll baby, and I just love her dimples!

I looooooove it when couples say they aren’t sure of themselves in front of the camera….and then they give me beautiful moments like these next two shots!

I had to end with two of my favorite portraits….these two big sisters are beautiful girls, and I just melted with their love for each other.
