John & Samantha’s Uptown Engagement Session Sneak Peek!! {Charlotte Area Wedding Photography}

I left my session with John & Samantha feeling like I’d won some sort of photographic lottery!

These guys were a dream to photograph… not only b/c they’re beautiful (duh!!!) but they were fun, funny, spontaneous, had great chemistry and were totally comfortable in front of the camera (yes, I’m talking to you Samantha… you rocked it!!) AND the best part: They were up for anything and everything!  I’m talking velvet-chair-in-the-middle-of-the-road anything… I mean they were even willing to run through a waterfall to get that last killer shot!! (keep scrolling to see it!)

Enjoy a sneak peek at a few of my favorites!! XOXO

Ode to the Fall Family Session

Fall is officially here!  And there’s a lot of actiong going on at the Hart House!  Between a jam-packed football season for two busy boys…A pretty prima ballerina in the making…

The most delightfully delicious 6-month old imaginable…

And as many house projects as we can keep up with…

It’s turning out to be a pretty full Fall so far.

But let’s talk pictures!!  This is hands down my favorite time of year to shoot here in the Carolinas.  I mean, it’s just incredible.  The colors, the weather, the sweaters!!  Family photo sessions are in full swing and I couldn’t be happier:) I have one or two slots left and then I’m booked solid for the rest of the year!  Blessed to love what I do and to shoot such amazing families and people!  XOXO

Sisson Sisters Sneak Peek {Charlotte Area Photography}

It’s not every day that I make the time and effort to shoot a project for my portfolio, my website and my brand!! This was a concept I’ve been thinking about shooting for a while now… from the homemade floral headbands, peaches and creamy neutral dresses, hair and make-up (two-toned lips and nails!!!) to shooting in my own backyard… it was so fun to just take full creative and do it all from start to finish.

Portfolio shoots are always a bit of a learning experience… this time ’round I learned that thinking I could do hair and make-up for 5 girls in an hour and a half was a little ambitions, hahaha!  Luckily I had the most amazing models.  The Sisson sisters are truly gracious and gorgeous inside and out!  Thank you girls so much!!  Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot… soon to be debuting on my new website/blog very shortly!  Until then, xoxo

Wendy & Rodrigo of WR Salsa {Life-Style Photography}

Salsa dancing happens to be one of my favorite things.  Combine that with a sizzling shoot featuring two of my favorite people and we’ve got gold!!

Meet Wendy & Rodrigo, who are local celebrities here in Charlotte in their own right! They head up RW Latin Dance (website here) and we go way back!  I had the privilege of helping shoot their wedding several years ago and now this shoot has been years in the making.  Despite drizzly weather and downtown bums, we were still able to pull off a lot of fun looks/locations!  And these two smokin’ hot salsa dancers know how to work the camera!!  I had a blast Wendy & Rodrigo.  Already can’t wait for the next one, XOXO!!
