Full on Fall / Tennessee Family Photography

Although it may not feel like it when I step outside my FL doors these days it is all fall inside my photo studio. After taking off a week from photography for my brother's wedding this past weekend, my camera and I have been going on photography adventures all week long to capture some awesome family moments in full on fall sessions. Throughout the week I found myself talking about how excited I was for each shoot as I reminisced about the last time we gathered together. It didn't dawn on me until well into the week that every one of the three family sessions I have had so far this week were repeat customers. What a compliment to be hired again and again by a family. And what fun it is for me to watch a family grow, to be greeted by smiling little familiar faces eagerly waiting my arrival. I have held more tiny hands as we crossed streets and wandered about and have received more kisses and hugs and professions of love from 3-5 year olds this week than I have in a long time. My heart is full...

(...and my fall photo season calendar is just about filled up too. I only have 5 slots left for booking in time for Christmas cards and gifts. Email me at cmprietz@yahoo.com to set up your session pronto.)

With all this fall-ness I couldn't help but to think back to the frenzy of last year and the beautiful family sessions I never got around to sharing. So today I am taking you back to one year ago when I hopped on a plane to Tennessee to spend a bliss filled few days with the Dowd family that included off road adventures, frolics in sunlight tree-lined fields and three little ones working their way into my heart in no time at all. All of which took place in the glorious fall setting of Tennessee, a photographer's dream-land.

About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
