I am an international award winning Charlotte, NC child and family photographer based in Marvin, NC. I specialize in capturing stunning, timeless family portraits worthy of display on the walls in your home.
The most common request a parent will make when booking a family portrait session is to have a beautiful photograph of all of their children together. As a parent, I know this may sound like a simple task, but when a parent tries to photograph their own children, it is often quite a daunting challenge. And this is why I love my gallery of sibling photographs!
It is so much fun to capture the true of personalities of siblings together. Whether they are in the middle of a thumb-wrestling challenge during their portrait session (I seriously love, love, love that photograph) or they pointing fingers at each other after being asked a silly question such as "who has the stinkiest poops?", these are portraits with personality.
But I also know that Mom wants and love photographs with all of her children smiling at the camera, and I do my very best to deliver those photographs, because my goal is to make Mom smile for years to come. I know that this is the photograph that will likely become a canvas print in your front hallway or your family room, and you'll get to see those smiling faces looking back at you every day.
My work has been featured in numerous publications including American Baby Magazine, Shutter magazine, Denim & Grace 2014 Posebook, New Jersey Family, and Ballantyne magazine. I have also been on featured on blogs for NAPCP, Lemonade & Lenses, Project Nursery, Seniorologie, Two Bright Lights, Love + Wander, and The Indie Tot.
