travels with kristi | asheville photographer

this past weekend, i had a little roadtrip of my very own, to visit a fellow photographer, Danielle Hobbs, and hang out with her at her newborn session. it was just great fun to watch her work, as she does loads of these newborn sessions, and so is a real natural at them. she certainly makes it look easy. thanks for letting me hang around, D! here are a few shots of you in action………
Danielle is expecting her own little newborn soon….she is just so at ease with these little babes.

so after the session was done, i started my drive home with gorgeous sun streaming in through the sunroof (aren’t there just days that you are so grateful for sunroofs?!). earlier in the day, while driving to the session, i had passed a couple of spots that just took my breath away, and made me wish i had a ‘model’ in my car with me to plunk them out into the aforementioned settings….but i didn’t, so a photo of just the spot was going to have to do. first the field with the most incredible wild grove of blooming bradford pear trees behind it…….i could just see a bride with her veil blowing in the wind here, can’t you?

after this first stop, it suddenly dawned on me, that there was no one in the car complaining about my stopping, in a hurry to get home or looking at me because i was crazy for wanting to drop down on my belly on the side of the road to photograph, this:
(ok…so perhaps there were some curious onlookers driving past!)
so once this realization took full hold of me, i vowed that i was going to detour, stop and/or back up to photograph anything that caught my fancy on that drive home……because after all…..this was MY time. hereafter i give you the sights that captivated me on my hour long drive ( that actually took about two and a half to complete due to the stops) on one of the most carefree afternoons i have had in a long time. yep……i really stopped not to smell the roses, but to photograph them….and it was just wonderful 🙂

Sandy Edelstein - You really amaze me, is there any subject matter your not unbelievably gifted at photographing (me it’s just people, you it’s anything and everything). I think you need to start a new end of your business for fine art!
