These boho chic senior portraits are some of my favorites of the season thus far. Abby wanted her senior pictures to have a light and airy look.

This session almost didn’t happen. We jumped through several weather and scheduling concerns to make these Uptown family portraits possible. We needed one son home from college before the other son left for the Navy. And the rain. We really needed the rain to stop. August felt unusually rainy in Charlotte this year. It absolutely […]

Fall is one of my favorite seasons … when it doesn’t rain every day. Can I get an amen Charlotte? I love the bold colors and the cooler temperatures. I love when seasonal smells fill the air – fire places, pinecones and apple cider. I love the excitement leading up to the holidays. But the thing […]

Uptown Charlotte family photography sessions are always so much fun. The unique spaces and urban textures provide a ton of variety and lend really well to both serious portraits and lifestyle photography. When this family asked me to photograph them, I knew uptown locations like The Green and Romare Bearden Park would be perfect. I also […]
