Best Family Photographer | 2015 Charlotte Smarty Awards

Charlotte Smarty Pants 2015 winner for Best Family PhotographerAnother nod for best family photographer in Charlotte! I’m on cloud nine. Yesterday Charlotte Smarty Pants announced the 2015 Smarty Award winners and Abbe McCracken Photography won Charlotte’s Best Family Photographer. This awesome surprise came only a month after Hulafrog South Charlotte named me Charlotte’s Most Loved Family Photographer. I need to count my lucky stars and thank my amazing clients. You guys make me smile with your support, your excitement, your enthusiasm, your cute families and yes, your pictures. Those adorable kiddos on my computer screen with big eyes, bold freckles, peek-a-boo dimples, joyful laughs, real smiles and even, shy smiles. Those images light up my days when my two crazies are at school. Thank you all for taking this awesome ride with me and letting me document your life. Thank you for taking time to tell others how much you loved it.

Be sure to check out the entire list of 2015 Smarty Award Winners. Several of my Charlotte favorites made the list so I’m in great company! Charlotte Smarty Pants provides the daily scoop for savvy Charlotte moms. It’s a great resource for all things parenting from pregnancy to high school. Thank you again Charlotte Smarties for making me the area’s best family photographer.

Welcome to my blog! I’m a child and family photographer based in Charlotte NC.


Parents always ask, “what if my kid doesn’t listen?” My answer: that’s actually perfect. Don’t tell your children I said so, but personalities shine when listening ears fail. I welcome the silly. I want the giggles. I watch for honest smiles, real connections and stolen family moments.


This applies to your big kids and high school seniors too. Wink, Wink.
