The Suttles Family Portraits | Asheville NC Family Photographer

It is so special to watch a family grow and change through their portraits over the years, and I have been lucky enough to photograph this adorable family through some milestones! I first met them 5 1/2 years ago for maternity portraits and then Liam’s newborn session (check it out–he was delivered via FedEx!!). It was wonderful to catch up at the Asheville NC Arboretum recently to document them as a family of four. The Suttles Family is full of love and energy, positivity, and tons of fun.

Introducing….The Suttles Family

Same dilemma for big brother Liam…Color or B&W?

Mom and Dad have been a couple since they were a whopping 13 years old! I love their love story of growing up together and loving through the years. During every family session, I think it’s ALWAYS important to photograph just mom and dad, even if the kids are running around like crazy behind the scenes, because this love, this connection is where their family began.
