“I have never had such wonderful portraits taken of my family and myself. Bob and his wife Sharon were so easy to work with and made it a lot of fun. When I said my ‘family’… I mean my husband, my dog Miley and myself! Miley loved Sharon and Bob and they made some great photographs of her as well. Everyone who sees my portraits ALWAYS comments and ask where I got them done! If you want GREAT photography, the first time with the least stress… I highly recommend Bob and Sharon. Our portraits are priceless!”

—Barbara and Reid Armstrong

“Stephen, Katie and I could not be more pleased with the pictures of our children.

You certainly exercised patience and persistence in capturing their smiles and pouts.

… Working with an infant and a 2 year old posed a unique challenge…and we are more than pleased with the images you captured.  We have depended on you to keep the memories of our children imprinted on canvas for years and now we look forward to keeping this tradition with our grandchildren.”

“We moved to the High Country for the quality of life here; and we wanted to have a photograph that would capture our joy of living here while showing the natural beauty of the area. Then my husband and I saw Bob Caldwell’s photography exhibit in the Boone Mall and we were impressed…..


As it turns out, Bob and Sharon were the perfect team for our family of three. They were open to our suggestions as to the venue, and liked the natural setting we chose…


Our experience with Bob and Sharon in taking our family portrait is like none we have ever had. We are glad we chose Caldwell Photography; and we highly recommend them. When it comes to professional photography, it is the very best decision we could have made. We simply have had the best.”

—Jean and Jim Studeman


“Bob and Sharon Caldwell have a way of connecting with and bringing out the best in their subjects. Bob Caldwell images are vivid with palpable emotion.

“Our family went to Banner Elk for a family get together. My daughter contacted Bob and his wife (without knowing them), to take our long overdue family portrait. The experience of meeting and working with Bob and his wife was great. The portrait turned out beautifully. We had many images to choose from, and different group settings as well. Bob was very quick in getting the images to us.


It never occurred to us that this would be a different process considering we lived in Indian and would be getting the final product by working details out long distance. Bob was very patient and helpful with meeting requests and also understanding what we wanted. Our family portrait was 30” x 40” on canvas, so it was important to get it right, and he did. We also very much enjoyed all of the informal, smaller gift portraits of our family that add to our memories at Banner Elk.”
