Modeling Portfolio Images | Charlotte, NC

Modeling agencies often have very specific requests and styles of images for modeling portfolios. Typically they prefer neutral clothing and simple backgrounds that showcase the model’s natural beauty. Modeling portfolio images should also include a variety of “looks” – serious, playful, smiling and more. This helps agents who view the portfolio to see the model in various styles of work.

Below is a sample of the modeling portfolio images I recently photographed for my teen client Cameron. Wouldn’t you love to have those amazing eyebrows? I love her sun-kissed natural highlights and gorgeous green eyes too. Yes, she also has dimples.

Photographing you was a treat Cameron. I can’t wait to say I knew you when. Thank you for letting me be a part of your modeling journey!

2018 Update: You can see Cameron in a fashion show here in Charlotte in March!

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.
