Charlotte Catholic just graduated an outstanding young man. So outstanding that he wanted (or at least agreed) to have his family attend his senior portrait session earlier this spring. I’m guessing he wanted them there because as you can see, the family bonds are strong. Meet my new friends the Thornton family. Mom and I have […]

Creating gorgeous family […]

Today I’m sharing another family session from our busy fall photography season. This family brought so much joy to Independence Park back in September.

Freedom Park continues to be one of my favorite locations for family photography because it radiates joy, just like this family. It was the perfect photo session location for this adorable threesome from Stanley, North Carolina. Dad purchased the family session as a Mother’s Day gift (bonus points for Dad!!!) for his wife, then she and I planned […]

Families with adult children should absolutely make time for annual photos. I love that this family still makes it a priority. And I love that this year they picked me to photograph them. Photographing families with older children can be tricky to schedule because many adult children live elsewhere and have their own busy schedules. I’m so glad we […]

It’s summer in Charlotte, NC and needless to say, it’s hot. I happen to love the heat and am so glad it didn’t deter this family of five. We planned their family photo session for early morning to take advantage of the best light and lowest temperatures. It was SO worth it. Just look at these […]
