Sneak Peek: Summer Family Photo Session in Charlotte and Matthews

It’s summer in Charlotte, NC and needless to say, it’s hot. I happen to love the heat and am so glad it didn’t deter this family of five. We planned their family photo session for early morning to take advantage of the best light and lowest temperatures. It was SO worth it. Just look at these well-rested, happy kids and gorgeous, bold summer colors. I’m so happy we were blessed with such a beautiful day. This family deserved it. They were originally scheduled for family pictures in the spring but one, two, three rainouts later we landed on this sunny July morning. Here’s a sneak peek of our time together exploring their own yard and Squirrel Lake Park in Matthews.

Thank you Shreve family for trusting me to document your family. I loved every minute and have way too many favorites in your final gallery. Actually, I have too many favorite pictures in this sneak peek too but I’m struggling with the delete button these days. Enjoy this little taste of your summer family photo session. I can’t wait for you to see the rest!

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.
