CAMP GIRLBOSS

Cat Ford-Coates, Principal Photographer for Studio 828 Photography creates branding headshots for the girls attending the first annual Camp Girlboss here in Asheville.

Camp Girlboss is a summer camp for middle-aged girls teaching leadership and entrepreneurial skills wherein the girls each walk away with not only an amazing experience, but the foundational skills of being an entrepreneur, confidence and developing their integrity as business owners, and the marketing collateral to launch their businesses.

“It was such a fun opportunity to participate and watch each of these girls develop their ideas from “Oh I dont know…” to create tangible business concepts for themselves. Being able to photograph them to help bring out their confidence too was so amazing to watch. I hope to participate on a more in depth level next year too.” - Cat Ford-Coates

Personal Branding for a western North Carolina Powerhouse

Emily Breedlove is not your everyday entrepreneur. In fact, she is more engaged in the entrepreneurial community of western NC than any 4 people could hope to be. She’s what you call “plugged in”. Cat Ford-Coates created her new personal branding campaign at Studio 828 Photography.

Making Magic with Bri

Making Magic with Bri

Bri is a professional stylist that I’ve worked with on a few occasions in Los Angeles and Italy this year. After following her for a time and then working with her in January I just knew I needed to photograph her. She has this uncanny beauty you just dont find in most women. There’s a spark there.

I absolutely loved photographing her this spring and the portraiture we created…well, I’ll let you decide.

Mother Daughter Portraits

Melissa came in with her daughter for Mother Daughter photos and we even had Dad come in for the last 30 minutes or so to create some beautiful family portraits of all of them together too (Dads LOVE it when I do that!)
