elaine is one of those gems with that perfect british accent….the kind you could listen to all day long….AND….the things she says with that accent usually have me convulsing with laughter! what a bright spot in anyone’s day to encounter her. she is also a perfect photography subject, who instantly relaxes the moment i lift up the camera. i give to you, the lovely, elaine…

kristi hedberg photography – pure joy | asheville headshot photographer

this is the second time that I have had the opportunity to photograph this lovely woman……..and each time, I sit here grinning from ear to ear while editing her images. it is that crazy, happy, joyful smile and those sparkly blue eyes, you just cannot help but find yourself smiling back at her! that is who she is as a person too. happy.
i might also add that she has fairly recently launched a fabulous business for helping folks learn to effectively navigate the waters of social networking, and reap benefits for your business as well. check out her blog, time rescuer
and for the record, i LOVED the snow series, em. great to see you again!

kristi hedberg photography – artist profile | asheville portrait artist

As we prepare to take a few quick images of this lovely artist, and my very dear friend, she gathers up a bunch of crayons and takes a giant sniff of them. Flashing her trademark brilliant white infectious smile she remarks…….”Mmmmm. Don’t you just love the smell of crayons?! That smell just brings back so many of my fondest childhood memories.” It is just that magical sense of wonderment, attention to the tiniest detail, and fascination with the world around her that make Heidi Geagan so incredibly adept at capturing the essence of a person in a painted portrait. And many times, these portraits contain lots more than paint. The aforementioned crayons find their way into these one of a kind creations.Heidi

I have been so excited to finally have images to post to accompany this fantastic announcement. Heidi is teaming up with me to offer one of a kind artistic interpretations of images from your photo session! She just completed this incredible mixed media work of my oldest daughter, painted entirely from a photo I took of her last summer.

kristi hedberg photography – you’ve come a long way, baby | asheville headshot photographer

I’ve now known Debbie for just over two years. She first came to me to document the progression of her battle against cancer….specifically, she called me because she was about to begin losing her hair, and it was longer than it had ever been before, so she wanted to document it. We just connected in that first session, and became such great friends. I was lucky enough to follow her progress over the last two years, progress that has brought her to the bright, beautiful, healthy woman she is today. Through it all, she never lost that gorgeous smile, or positive spirit. What a blessing she is to all who meet her. Today, we spent the day capturing some new headshots for some exciting new ventures she has coming up. Debbie, I am just so lucky to call you my friend. Here are your images!

Justyna - Simply stunning! Both the lady and the images!

Margi - These are incredible pictures of a very beautiful woman. And I would love to see some of the bald pictures as well. I think a friend’s mother needs to see them too!

Debbie - Kristi,
Words cannot express how much I appreciate your friendship during the most challenging part of my life. You were and are a gift to me.
The pictures you took before, during and after have helped me emotionally through this experience in ways you will never know.
You have supported me and lifted me at times when no one else could have given me that care. Your friendship and your talent have been a blessing to me. I am forever thankful. db

Whitney Gray - She’s absolutely beautiful! I think it’s great that you documented her journey!! Amazing shots, Kristi!

2010/02/28 - 9:34 pm

softservegirl - thank you for giving your time to document Debbie. Her photos are so beautiful and show such positivism and hope during a time that works against the very grain of who a person is while going through chemo. I am sure the experience has brought you to a different place – as well. how can you not be moved into a new space as a person. thank you!

2010/03/06 - 11:42 am

Mick Black - I’ve got to know Deb through Flickr and your wonderful photographs.

She has been a wonderful inspiration and help to me when I was recently diagnosed and continues to be so.

Her words to me fit your pictures like a glove.
Thank you,
mick

kristi hedberg photography – If given the chance……. | asheville lifestyle photographer

would you like to live forever? just one of the thought provoking topics that pops up in Table Topics our nightly dinner time diversion. I have to say, we have owned this game for a few years now, and played it sporadically ( I have a collection of the teen version, family and family gathering versions) but with the onset of the relentless winter weather, and the increase of family members eating at all different times and in all different parts of the house, I decided it was time to bring em all back to the table, and this little cube provided just the temptation. We have had more fun over the last several nights talking , laughing and learning more ( sometimes more than we wanted to know, ha!!) about each other. I strongly recommend picking one of these up…….and then….using them. You will be so glad you did.
