Every year Studio 828 Photography teams up with Blush Asheville to contribute to causes close to their hearts. In 2016, we partnered with Mass Wisteria Productions and the Buncombe County Special Olympics and had. a. ball. Each of the athletes were so sweet and so funny! Getting to know them individually just made me burst! The heart and joy for life within every single one of us is sometimes overwhelming to witness in person. We love what we do and are so grateful to have been able to contribute our services.
Chris has more presence, more zest for life, and more joy in his little pinky than most people do in their entirety!!!
Drew is SUCH a sweetheart! This man loves to bake! Loves to smile! And was a JOY to photograph.
LeAnn has a bit of a crush on Kenny Chesney and would LOVE to meet him. Kenny, are you listening? Feel free to reach out if you'd like to make this number one fan's day! We'll get you two in touch.
Tait, what a wonderful young man he is. A bit shy but such an athlete! He's a gymnast and a tumbler and his coach is one of his best friends. <3
Shea, ooooooh how this little girl took our hearts! And such an adventurous soul too! Loved having aher hair and makeup done and modeled like a superstar!!!
Ok, Alex is awesome! This guy has performed at the Orange Peel (kind of a big deal if you didn't know already), snowboards, and is an all around rock star. He's fantastic! I'm so glad we met.
There is nothing like a mother's love.
Eliza is a Super. Model. and so much more. She is also a big competitor at Hard Exercise Works here in Asheville.
Such pride in his accomplishments with the Buncombe county special olympics.
Sue had such wonderful ideas for posing and locations during our photo shoot together.
