We had the incredible opportunity to spend three weeks in France this summer with my husband’s family. Ah-mazing is an understatement. We were there so long that I forgot what day is was. Do you know how long it’s been since that happened? Maybe never. Ok maybe when my kids were newborns but the point […]

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 […]

Early mornings are absolutely gorgeous for summer senior pictures and family portraits. I’m an early riser so I love morning photography sessions. The light is so pretty and the weather is much cooler than late afternoon sessions. Charlotte can get very hot and sticky in the summer and the last thing I want is for […]
