With a diversity of landscapes ranging from mountainous regions to strikingly sandy beaches, North Carolina is a fabulous family vacation photo location in addition to being a charming destination. The state is divided into three main regions: the coastal plain, the Piedmont region and the Appalachian Mountains and foothills. Because of its varied range of elevation, from sea shore to the mountains, this state has one of the biggest varieties of climate of the southeastern states, making for ideal vacation area for family photography options. The Piedmont region, located in the central portion of North Carolina contains the state's most urbanized and densely-populated cities; Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Fayetteville, which are all fantastic family portrait locations. With a rolling countryside, small rivers, streams and waterfalls, families will find tremendous locations for beautiful lifestyle photography. The western portion of North Carolina is lined with mountains that make up the Appalachian region, including the Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Balsams and the Black Mountains, which can stand tall as a majestic backdrop for your family photography. The coastal plains, which make up the eastern 45% of the state, start off with sandy islands called the Outer Banks, which form the Albemarle and the Pamlico Sound. These areas are relatively flat and reveal the massive Atlantic Ocean and make for ideal locations for your family photographer to shoot brilliant photos.

Sarasota, Florida lifestyle and family photographer Samantha Moore

Hi. I'm Sam: a photo-taking, baby-making, adventure-seeking mama + photographer. I fell in love with photography in a high school darkroom class and dedicated much of my career life to learning the art form since. From editorials, albums, and magazine covers, so many friendly kiddos, fresh babies on their birth days, and destination weddings, I've enjoyed the challenge of it all. Beyond photography, I love being a mom and a wife, growing my tropical food forest, dancing, decorating, traveling, chickens, sewing, clean sheets, dinner parties, snowboarding, camping, IPAs, hiking, and that tingly feeling when you first get into a hot bath. I love great late-night conversations that dig deep, karaoke in dive bars where people are performing like they're on the verge of a midlife crisis, and the rush of Christmas mornings. And I'd love to connect with fresh families that dig my style and would like to document their families as they grow. Because while time flies, we can capture and preserve little slices of each chapter. So, let's have fun and take beautiful portraits together!

Portrait of Bryan Aleman, Knoxville Lifestyle Photographer for TN

Photography has been one of my favorite things to do since I was little. I always wanted to capture memories to be able to see them later and live those moments again with the same intensity. There are moments in life that you don't want to miss or forget and photograph is the most beautiful way to keep them. I have learned everything I know about photography on my own and have developed my skills through practice and discipline. It's always great to give the best of you to the most beautiful form of art.
