The Biltmore Estate Milestone Session | The Payne Family

April 19, 2021 Greenville Milestone Session



As a Greenville newborn and family photographer, I am honored to be a part of documenting important milestones for little ones like Arden!


This milestone session at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC was everything I could've dreamed of!! Ella has been in contact with me for about a year now about planning their family photos with me. She and I have been connected from our church back in Indianapolis, and when I made the move to Greenville, SC, it was the perfect opportunity to document their season of life.


Their adorable little son, Arden, celebrated his first year around the sun during the week of their session, and to celebrate they brought balloons and their people-loving pup, Laska. Ella and her husband chose the Biltmore Estate as their location because if holds a very special place in their hearts. It was here that they did their engagement photos and anniversary photos, so it seemed only fitting to also do their family portraits here as well. They are annual pass holders, and bring Arden here to explore several times a year, especially during the Christmas season when the mansion is all decorated. I was beyond honored to photograph their sweet family at such a stunning location!! I've always dreamed of the visiting the Biltmore Estate, and I quickly learned that it was even more stunning in-person!! The mountains, the historic architecture, and this sweet family made for a memorable session.


Enjoy these favorite moments from Arden's milestone session at the Biltmore Estate!
