Christmas Mini Sessions Are Here!


I am super excited to announce my first ever studio Christmas Mini Sessions this year!  It’s not secret that I love all things Christmas so it’s only natural that I share this love with my clients.  Christmas Minis are great for families, couples (this is the only time of year I capture families or couples), and yes even brands!  So here are the details:

Christmas minis will take place in my studio located in NoDa, Charlotte on Saturday, November 20 beginning at 9 am.  There will be limited spaces available.  Each session will last 15 minutes and you will receive 6 edited images with the option to purchase more.  This is the perfect time to get your session in before sending out your upcoming holiday cards featuring your images!  Sessions can be booked via the link below:

Book Here!

I am so excited about this new offering and I hope to see you there!


Changes Coming To DBP In 2021

Changes Coming To DBP In 2021


Change is inevitable.  I’ve kept things relatively the same for a while now so it was time to switch things up!  Check out the IGTV video below to see what’s new for DBP in 2021.  Have questions about anything in the video or my services?  I’d love for you to reach out to me at with any questions you may have.  Chat soon!



DBP Officially Has A Studio Space!

Denise Benson Photography Studio Space from Denise Benson on Vimeo.

Sometimes the very thing you said you never wanted is exactly what you need…
If you would’ve told me 9 years ago when I began my photography career that I’d be in the space that I’m in right now (both mentally + physically) I never would’ve believed you. But I’ve learned over the years that desires are put on your heart for a reason + if it’s something truly meant for you a way will be made.
In 2019 I began to have a vision of myself working in a studio space. Prior to that I always saw myself working on location in God’s natural light so I didn’t understand why I suddenly had this desire. So over the next few months I prayed + had many talks with God to make sure this was the right move for me. If you know me, then you know I don’t leap into things without having ALL of my ducks in a row. His answer to me was…it’s time.
I found an amazing space in NoDa Charlotte with lots of beautiful natural light (I can never steer too far from what I know + love most) + I’m excited to share with my branding clientele that Denise Benson Photography is now a member of a local Charlotte studio! I will be offering studio branding sessions at no additional cost. I’m so excited for this new chapter + can’t wait to capture all of your amazing brand stories here!

Pantry Organization Project

Pantry Organization Project

As stated in my prior blog post I was able to do lots of home improvement projects during quarantine, one of which is reorganizing my pantry. This is a project I’ve wanted to work on for a while now, but never seemed to get around to.

Two bloggers that I follow on Instagram, Chasing Denisse and Hayet Rida teamed up and formed #PantryAunties and this was all the motivation I needed to get my whole life together! If you weren’t able to catch me doing this in real time on Instagram then check out my YouTube video below that goes through the entire process from start to finish and lists out where everything was purchased. I also have an Amazon Storefront where you can conveniently shop my pantry items (or similar items). Happy organizing!
