One of my favorite things about photographing teenagers and high school seniors is showing them that they are beautiful. Teenagers love to tell me they take bad pictures; that they aren’t photogenic. I love to prove them wrong. Within the first few minutes, I’m showing them their pictures – straight out of my camera. I wish everyone could see the confidence spread across these gorgeous teen faces when they see themselves through my lens. It makes my job that much more important because not only are we freezing time for mom and dad, we are building up the next generation of leaders. These kids are amazing and I love helping them see themselves in a new light. I’m so fortunate to serve them in this way.
Senior portraits and teen sessions take place at a variety of locations around Charlotte including home, local parks, schools and uptown’s urban setting. I work with every family and teen to match them with the perfect location. Outfit changes are welcome and worked into the flow of your portrait session. As with all of my photography, we will capture posed images as well as lifestyle photos and joyful candids during our time together.
