Low Light Love at ClickAway | Charlotte Family Photography

Low light is amazing.  Any creative soul will tell you that experimentation is key to growth.  You have to step outside your box, leave your comfort zone, explore new paths and open your eyes.  That might sound funny coming from a photographer who tries to see things differently daily but everyone has a comfort zone and this, low light was outside of mine.  After an hour with my amazing friend Candice Zurich, The Blissful Maven, I was hooked … ok maybe obsessed.  Learning to make the most of what little light we had in these scenes was part technical, part creative and all heart.  I’m so thankful to ClickAway for giving us all opportunities to explore new genres of photography while honing our skills.  The whole conference was amazing.  I have so much to share.  I photographed so many adorable kids with some of my children’s photography heroes. I can’t wait to share those with you too.  But for now, here’s my low light love.  It’s different, it’s unique, it’s me too and I love it.  Candice you have opened my eyes.  Please visit my children’s photography gallery to see the variety of light, locations and kids of all ages that I’m lucky enough to photograph.  Most of my clients are in and around the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area but as you will see, my work spans from coast to coast.
