I am a Valle Crucis, NC portrait and wedding photographer serving Western North Carolina and beyond.

My style has evolved over the past 15 years. I begin working as a full time photojournalist back in the analog film days with tight deadlines and adrenaline rushes getting photos ready for the press. My favorite times back then were combing the mountains searching and documenting peoples' stories. I am a firm believer in that everyone has a story or two to tell and if I am fortunate, my camera will capture it. 

I rediscovered my love of portrait photography once I left the news business and joined Appalachian State University as Chief Photographer in the Marketing and Communications Department. I wear many hats at my job, but still long to tell stories in camera.

My dear friend and business partner Leila Jackson and I started Freeman and Jackson Photography in April 2013. We photograph babies, wedding, families and basically anything that has a mother and a face. 

This particular place is for me, all by myself. I needed an online gallery to highlight the photos of which I am currently the most proud and which doesn't always reflect my freelance business. Sometimes I experiment, oh who am I kidding? I am always experimenting , so please indulge me in my creative endeavors without too much judgement ;-)

Thanks you.
