The Photography

Every once in a while, I take a picture and think to myself, Dern. I think that was purty good. {My time abroad has relaxed my southern accent, but it’s still pretty strong when I’m thinking.}






But that doesn’t happen particularly often.

And I like to have a nice and at least seemingly relevant photo for each post around here.

Which creates a problem.

Because do you really want to see the same 12 photos over and over again?

So that’s where the Hubs comes in.

Because he takes pretty pictures like this

Lake Matheson 5

and this

Chapelle St-Roch

and this


{hello, tiny sea shell, I love you.}

and this

White Rhino and calf

{those are rhinos, in case you’re not sure}

and this


And he does so on a regular basis.

Which means I have lots more than twelve photos to choose from, with which to make the little posts around these parts more attractive than if it were just wordswordswordswords without a break, or 12 photos overandoverandoverandover again.

So I’d like to make sure the record shows that Señor Mark Collie (whose señorita I am proud to be), the mastermind behind Quiver Tree Photography, father and Hero Hubs extraordinaire, is the skilled artisan behind about 98.5% of the photos that you’ll see on this site.

And the occasional other 1.5%, well, you already know which ones they are, and we’ll call them my lucky shots.

I’d also like for you to know that Quiver Tree Photography is our family business. The Hubs gets behind the lens for families and children, newborns and maternity, weddings and engagements, and senior portraits. I help behind the scenes with things like advertising and marketing, crafting sassy posts for the Quiver Tree blog, and passing out jelly beans until we get the perfect shot. We offer photography services in Washington, NC, Greenville, NC, the Inner and Outer Banks, and in the surrounding regions of the beautiful state of North Carolina.

So, if you see a photo you like around these parts, good news, you’ve got options. If you would like the story behind the photo, leave a comment to say so. HH regularly posts at Quiver Tree Photography, sharing a special shot and its backstory.

And if you’d like to actually purchase a photo to hang on a wall in your home or give as a gift or tattoo on your backside, let us know, because we actually print and even do canvas wraps at the Quiver Tree Gallery we opened in June. Um, you’ll have to go elsewhere for that tattoo though.

So please mosey on over to Quiver Tree Photo soon. And buy a photo. Or send an ecard (that’s free!) Or contact us and book a session! Or just click “like” and leave a comment for the Hubs saying “Thanks for sharing your photos with Caroline. I’m glad she has more than 12 photos to choose from.”

You’ll make our day. 


Dear Hero Hubs, thank you for sharing your talent with all of us. The world, and my website, are better places because you’re in them. Love you.

    I heard about your Dad and want you to know I am praying for you and your family. I had never seen your blog before, but I am sure you touch many people. I sent an email link to your blog to several people at work.

    Take Care
