I love being a photographer. I get to meet so many amazing families that visit the smoky mountains. This family rented a beautiful cabin from Chalet Village resort in Gatlinburg. They had an amazing view of the mountains. I stepped on the deck and I was in awe. I have lived in Pigeon Forge for awhile and you never get tired of the mountains.
Everyone was so sweet and I loved capturing these moments. I took a great shot of a dad throwing his kid in the air and when I was editing, I had a little fun with it.
After we did all the posed kind of pictures. Everyone went down in the basement and played pool, board games, foosball, and had fun with each other. I loved it. That is the best kind of photography.
When I got ready to leave, I had to walk up the hill to get to my car and I put all my stuff in the trunk. I then drove down the road about half a mile and came upon a mother bear and her three cubs digging in the trash outside of another cabin. It was so amazing. I got my camera out and took some pictures and video. It was an amazing experience. Click here to see the pictures.
After I left, I texted Cindy and told her what I saw, thinking to tell the kids so they don’t go outside. She then tells me she saw a bear right outside their door as soon as I left. I was glad they saw a bear, because I know it is exciting, but it did scare me a little because I went outside and took pictures of them on the deck and had a long walk to my car. Good thing that bear didn’t come when I was outside.
Thank you guys so much for letting me be apart of your vacation to the smoky mountains. I hope you had a GREAT time!
