Kyndal c/o 2019 | Charlotte Senior Session

 

It’s crazy to think that my session with Kyndal was all the way back in April of this year and at that time she was a senior that was still looking forward to the end of the school year, graduating and all of the festivities surrounding that time in her life.  Now she’s a freshman in college experiencing something completely new!  It just goes to show you that your life can change drastically within a matter of months.

I met Kyndal, her mom and sister on an unusually chilly and windy morning at Providence Day School.  You’d be surprised to know that this was my very first high school senior session that actually took place at the client’s school.  When I came to that realization myself it made me even more excited.  Senior sessions out and about in uptown Charlotte, at Romare Bearden Park or downtown Rock Hill are all nice, but I think when a student looks back on these images years from now seeing themselves at the school that took care of them and helped them mature into the adults they’ll eventually become will be a heart warming moment.

Kyndal has such a good head on her shoulders and it was great getting to know her as well as her family over the course of her session.  Just as the rain began to pick up we made our way into the gym where Kyndal was able to show off her volleyball skills.  I wish her much success on her future endeavors in college as well as the work force later in her life!  And if you’re a rising senior (or the parent of one) then I’d love to chat with you about your session.  Now is the time to start booking and planning so contact me today you’re interested in having me shoot your session!

Sasha Q. Photography | Photographer Branding Session

 

If you’ve been around here for even a little while then you know shooting brands is my passion.  Even more specifically creative brands.  And even more specifically than that…fellow photographers.  I know I’ve mentioned it here before that working with those in the same field as myself makes me extra happy and when it’s a friend no less, well then that’s just the cherry on a very sweet sundae.

I had the pleasure of working with my friend Sasha of Sasha Q. Photography previously for her partnered business The TwentySeven Workshop, so when she reached out to me during her business rebrand I was super excited!  One, because I knew she was niching down and focusing more on what she’s passionate about in photography and two, because I knew our time together was going to be filled with lots of laughter which it most definitely was!

Sasha is a natural light family and children’s photographer based in Greenville, SC.  She’s a girl after my own heart because she enjoys traveling and eating good food.  Two things that we’ve actually had the pleasure of doing together!  I was so happy to capture her session in uptown Charlotte.  The weather seemed like it was going to work against us, but we managed to get things done before the rain dropped or the wind picked up too much.  I know this won’t be the last shoot we do together and I’m already anticipating our next one!  If you’re in the Greenville/Spartanburg area and in need of updated family photos or images of your little ones then make sure to reach out to her.  And if YOU’RE a photographer that is ready to take their branding to the next level then it’s time to get you on my calendar!  Contact me today so we can discuss your vision and how I can help you to bring it to life.

Breyan S. | Uptown Charlotte Birthday Session

Breyan S. | Uptown Charlotte Birthday Session

 

Chic and sophisticated life celebration (aka birthday) sessions are all the rage right now and Breyan definitely brought the heat to her shoot earlier this year in uptown Charlotte!  I love when my clients celebrate themselves and commemorate a special occasion by treating themselves to a photoshoot.  I often feel like people think it’s vain to have a photoshoot for just themselves unless they’re a business owner in need of headshots, but I love that this trend is emerging where people are treating themselves to something so special.

Breyan and I met in uptown Charlotte for her session back in April and she had the sweetest spirit about her.  Her demeanor was soft spoken and a bit quiet, but you’d never know based on the power poses she gave me and the way she worked her session.  I love when my clients come alive in front of my lens.  It’s almost like the inner Tyra or Naomi that I’m convinced lives inside each of us comes out and just serves!

Breyan popped in her yellow suit and brought out a softer side in her second look, a gorgeous white cocktail dress.  It was a perfect way to show who she is through various looks.  I had so much fun with working with and getting to know her and I hope we get the opportunity to work together again in the future.  And if you’re considering a life celebration session, but are having doubts let me alleviate them for you and as Nike says…just do it!  I’d love the opportunity to get to know you and see how I can help you celebrate this special moment in your life.  Contact me today so we can begin brainstorming your birthday session to make it everything you want and more!

The Lugg Family | Charlotte Maternity Session

The Lugg Family | Charlotte Maternity Session

 

I am so excited for my friend Wilfrida and her husband Nakia as they prepare to welcome their first born son, Nakari into the world!  He will be making his entrance into the world very soon and their lives as they currently know it will be forever changed.  I had the absolute pleasure of capturing this moment in time for them a few weeks ago and I’m truly honored that I was able to do this maternity session for them.

Their session took place in scenic uptown Charlotte.  I love shooting sessions in this particular part of Charlotte because it does a great job of mixing uptown city vibes with greenery that makes you feel like you’re in a park just outside of the hustle and bustle of what’s going on in the city.  I particularly like this area for family sessions because it gives them just enough variety in their session to make everyone happy.

While we shot this session early in the morning in an attempt to beat the summer heat, we got lucky and the temps were on our side.  Wilfrida glowed as we snapped both individual shots as well as her and her husband and it was so precious to see just how excited Nakia became when looking at Wilfrida’s belly.  I always love to see how couples interact with one another during this special moment in their lives and the connection the two of them had to not only each other, but also their growing baby was immediately evident.  I am so excited for the journey that lies ahead of them as they go through the growing pains of becoming parents and an expanding family and I’m so happy to be able to witness it all.  Wishing them a safe and swift delivery!  And if you’re in need of maternity images to capture your growing family then I’d love the chance to chat with you.  Contact me today so we can begin planning your session!
