My Photography Bag: Charlotte Professional Family Photographer Abbe McCracken

Have you ever wanted to know what a professional family photographer has in his or her camera bag? Dental floss and wipes (plus a few awesome go-to lenses). Head on over to the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) blog where I’m sharing it all – my professional Nikon camera, my collection of prime lenses, my Lensbaby creative lens and so much more. You might even find a funky iPhone photography attachment and cleaning supplies for more than just the children I photograph! Thank you NAPCP for featuring the contents of my camera bag in your What’s In Her Bag series. I’m so honored to be a part of it and this amazing organization.

Want to see what I photograph with all this gear? Check out my professional photography galleries of families, children and high school seniors. One can never have enough photography gear for all this cuteness.

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.
