Memorable Charlotte Family Portraits

I love helping my clients update their family portraits, no matter the age of the children. Even if your children are growing up, it is so important that they have memorable family portraits as a keepsake. I often find that as our children get older, scheduling that family portrait session each year becomes harder and harder. They have sports and activities that take their time after school, during the weekend and more.

But it’s wonderful when busy clients find the time to create these priceless memories that they will treasure for years to come.

This client also welcomed a new puppy just a few months before the session, and so it was a pleasure to include this new family member into their photographs. When my clients want to include their pets, we will sometimes begin the session at their home to make it easier on our furry friends and my client. But then, we still head to one of my favorite locations to achieve a variety of backdrops and looks for their photographs.

Fall is my favorite time for Family Portraits, especially here in Charlotte. The weather is typically more cooperative, and everyone just loves being outside. And the colors from the Autumn leaves provides such a beautiful backdrop for our sessions.

Outdoor Spring Senior Portraits Charlotte | White Flowers

Charlotte, NC is a beautiful area in the Spring, especially for outdoor Spring Portrait Sessions. I especially love all the first blooms and gorgeous white flowers on the trees during the first weeks of Spring. This year, Spring was especially early and the timing worked just perfectly for this Senior Portrait session.

I was driving to one of my favorite locations in the Ballantyne area, when I passed a Corporate Office surrounded with trees all in bloom. I continued to meet my client and requested that they follow me back to this spot and the results were wonderful!

After a quick clothing change, we headed to my standard location to continue capturing photographs of this stunning young lady. After discussing her college options with Mom, I know this hard working young woman has a very bright future ahead of her.

During our pre-session consultation, Mom mentioned that her daughter loved to read. As an extra prop, I brought some of my grandfather’s antique books with me for the session. I loved using a handful of these books for various poses with Seniors, but I do keep the oldes and most treasured books at home (including one with my great-grandmother’s name that she dated December 25, 1900).

I loved Anne’s final outfit selection with the simplicity of a white shirt and jeans, but the added scarf for style.

Looking ahead to the future, I expect we will hear wonderful things from Anne after college!

Charlotte, NC Photographer| Elegant Autumn Senior Portraits

Charlotte is such a beautiful city for High School Senior Portrait Photography, and Autumn is a wonderful season to capture stunning, elegant senior photos.

Here is a spectacular example of a super fun and elegant Autumn Senior Portrait Session. Nina brought three favorite outfits for the session, and I just adored all of her choices. Fall equals sweater weather and the texture of her light gray fuzzy sweater was perfect for the start of our session. It worked great with the backdrop of Fall leaves, but even better against the concrete staircase in one of my favorite Ballantyne locations.

After a quick clothing change, we popped across the street from our first spot, to another little park complete with fountain. After grabbing a few favorite posed portraits, I had a little fun playing with creative uses of the fountain and the Autumn sunset backlighting Nina.

One last clothing change into her cheer costume helped complete our session. We were finished, and I was just about to put my camera away, when my subject turned to her Mom and gave her a huge hug, and thanked her for scheduling her Senior Portrait Session with me. Her happiness in her smile said it all, and I nearly cried. We will all treasure that moment, and I’m so glad that my camera was still around my neck!

Professional Headshots Charlotte, NC | Best First Impressions

Having a professional business portrait can be extremely helpful in making a good first impression. If you are a small business owner, including your portraits on your web site can help your customers get to know the person behind the business. When they walk into your office or store or meet you in person, they will feel a connection, as if they already know you.

Professional portraits can also be helpful to include on social media sites, such as LinkedIn, and business executives never know when they might need to share their headshot for an industry speaking engagement or inclusion with an article for the press.

Professional Headshots Charlotte, NC

Whether you need casual business portraits on location or professional studio style headshots, I have the equipment and training to meet your needs. I have experience photographing both men and women in corporate and casual settings and understand how important it is that your headshot represent you and your brand for your business. I have photographed authors for book covers, veterinarians, doctors, orthodontists, dance studio owners, finance executives, realtors and even other photographers. I also have experience photographing Chief Executive Officers for their public company’s annual report publication.

Charlotte Family Photographer | Give Mom the Gift of Memories

The Gift of Memories

What does Mom love more than anything else in this world? 

Of course, it’s her family.

So, this year, if you want to give Mom a gift from the heart that will last for years to come, then give her a gift that celebrates her absolute greatest loves – give her the gift of family in a beautiful portrait session that is sure to be one of the best gifts she ever received.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas Family Portraits Charlotte NC

A family portrait session leads to the creation of beautiful portraits that Mom can display in her home.  She won’t just smile during her portrait session, but she’ll smile nearly every day after when she sees the beautiful photographs on her walls. And those portraits will be a lasting reminder of one of the most thoughtful gifts she has ever received.

As a family photographer, I often talk to Moms that really want to book a family portrait session, but they worry that their family members won’t joyfully participate. But every Mom would LOVE a gorgeous photograph of their biggest loves all together. So receiving a gift certificate for a family session lets Mom know that everyone will happily participate which makes this a truly special present.

Wishing you could receive this as your own Mother’s Day present? Just share this blog post with your loved ones with a special “hint, hint” and have them give me a call at (704) 256-7270.

Love this idea, but you don’t live near me?

The National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) offers a directory of photographers by state, as well as listings for photographers around the world.

https://members.napcp.com/directory

Need a last minute gift? Many family photographers can prepare beautiful gift certificates that can be purchased and picked up right up to the day before Mother’s Day. 

Whether it’s for Mom’s immediate family, or a gift for Grandma so she can have photographs of her extended family, this is a gift she will love forever.

Irish Dance Photography | Unique Portrait Experience

This Sunday, April 14th, the 2019 World Irish Dancing Championships will begin in Greensboro, NC, at the Koury Convention Center. This is only the third time that the World Championships will be held in the United States, and for all of the Irish Dancers in the USA, but especially for Irish Dancers in the Southern Region, this is a huge deal!

As an Irish Dance parent, I’m beyond thrilled for my daughter to have another opportunity to compete with her team at a World Irish Dancing Championships, and I’m ecstatic for all of the dancers from our school (Connick School of Irish Dance) that will have the chance to compete at this major competition.

As a portrait photographer, I’m so excited to see all of the dancers. I have been mesmerized by the designs, color and sparkle of the Irish dance costumes for years, and photographing Irish Dance Portraits has become a fabulous new passion for me! I can’t help but love the pops of colors and amazing detail in each and every solo dress for the ladies or solo vests/suits for the gentlemen.

I want to take this moment to wish safe travels to all of the families, teachers, dancers, judges and organizers traveling to North Carolina. And I want to extend all of the very best wishes to every dancer joining us for this competition from teams to solos. May each dancer walk off the stages feeling that they danced the best they have danced in their life and that all of their hard work and preparation was shown in their performances! And thanks to every teacher and volunteer that played a part in bringing this competition to North Carolina! We know that there have been countless, unseen hours of work and effort put into bringing this competition to our state, and we hope you get to truly enjoy your efforts this week!

I hope you will enjoy this slideshow of some of my favorite Irish Dance portraits and I’m looking forward to working with more dancers this coming week! There are still portrait session slots available, so don’t miss your chance to book a unique portrait experience with Carolyn Ann Ryan Photography.

I will be available for sessions from April 14 – 17, and my photographer friend and colleague, Words & Pictures by Jeannie DeSena is also available for bookings. If I’m unavailable for your session, please don’t hesitate to give Jeannie a call too.

Charlotte Photographer | National Siblings Day 2019

National Siblings Day is today, April 10th, and I just adore this day. To celebrate holidays such as National Siblings Day, I love going back through my previous client sessions and finding my favorite photographs that best represent the holiday.

For this day, I tried to find the sweetest, cutest and sometimes funniest photographs of siblings together. I love that each of these images reminds me of my childhood and moments with my sister. And I’m always so honored to have been a small part of my tiny clients’ childhood, to create and capture these memories with them.

I hope you enjoy this compilation of sibling photographs, and don’t forget to reach out and call your favorite sibling(s today!

And if you haven’t done a family session in awhile, let’s chat soon and maybe your children will be part of next year’s Siblings slideshow!

Sweet Charlotte Family Photography | Spring is Coming

Sweet Charlotte Family Photography

Spring is Coming

It has been way too long since I shared a family portrait session from one of my clients here on the blog, so let’s start 2019 off with a dose of sweet Charlotte family photography. I just adored this Spring session from last year and these four adorable little men with their parents. I love how mom coordinated the pink and navy blue outfits for everyone, but the personalities of each of these little guys definitely stole the show. They were each sweet in their own way, but seeing them interact together was adorably entertaining throughout the session. One of my favorite parts of these session were the series of photographs from the concrete stairs. Within each photograph, I can see so much about the boys personalities and relationships to each other.  It was difficult to narrow to section of images to just one or two favorites and I was thrilled Mom loved them all as much as I did.

As cold as it has been in the South over the last week, Spring is not far behind.  Spring is Coming.  If you are interested in booking your own sweet Charlotte family photography session, then please give us a call at 704-256-7270 or email carolyn@carolynannryan.com.  We would love to hear from you!

“A great hat speaks for itself” ~ Unknown

As we start to get ready for Fall Family Portrait Season (and yes, my clients have already started booking their sessions), I wanted to share some of my favorite classic styled child portraits. Sometimes, it really is as simple as adding a hat to a child to achieve an adorable classic look. And there is just something about a hat that really adds personality to a photograph. During my pre-session consultations, I always suggest that my clients think about their outfits down to the accessories, which includes shoes, hair bows and ribbons, jackets, vests and most certainly hats.  So today, I’m sharing my Top 14 Favorite Classic Styled Child Portraits. Whether it was a beret, a soft hoodie, a winter beanie, an ascot cap, a Panama hat or even a Santa hat, these youngsters have style.

Charlotte, NC | Fall Family Portrait Session Style Guide

What to Wear for Your Fall Family Portrait Session

So your fall family portrait session is coming up and you don’t know what to wear. This is always a big challenge for my clients, because they know they are investing in the portraits and they want to love them. These are the photos that they will use for their Christmas and Holiday cards, and also to display in their home for many years to come and send as gifts to close family members.  Visit my previous Gift Guide Blog Post here.

Charlotte NC Family Photographer shares What to Wear guide for Fall Family Portraits

So, where to begin?

The first thing I suggest to my clients is to look around their home, look at their walls and think about where they want to display their photos. They should consider both the style and decor in these rooms along with the colors.  Is it a casual family room or a formal dining room or entry way?  This will help determine how casual or dressy they would like to get for their session.

For the colors, I always suggest that my clients use complimentary colors instead of having everyone completely matching. You want your family portraits to represent your personalities both individual and as a family. Incorporating the accent colors used to decorate your home will help your photos look best on the walls in your home.

Stylish Charlotte Photography

Accessories and Layers

Weather can be unpredictable, especially during the Fall when the temperature swings can be pretty dramatic. The temperature on your session day could be 85 degrees or 55 degrees, and that can make a big difference in keeping your family members comfortable and happy.

So, I ask my clients to think about layers for their outfits. Are there jackets or sweaters than can be added where you would still be happy displaying the photos on your wall (which often means not their typical winter jacket or fall rain jacket). In the same respect, if you are planning for sweaters and corduroy pants, do you have a backup option if the weather is 88 degrees? It is difficult to keep children and adults happy if they are overheated on session day, so being flexible with outfits can be important.

I LOVE accessories! Whether it is hats, Trend Suspenders, vests or ties for little boys or hair bands, bows, hats and pretty shoes for little girls, the outfits can really make the photos stand out! Use accessories to show your child’s personality and to help tie your outfit selections together!

Stylish Fashion Tips for Charlotte Portrait Sessions

But what about my Christmas/Holiday Cards? Should we wear holiday colors?

You really have two options here:

  • You can simply wear your regular outfits and I can adjust the color and design of your card to match your clothing OR

  • You can do a clothing change halfway through your session.  Because yes, children are stinking cute in their holiday pajamas and your friends will just melt when they see your card!

Best Charlotte, NC Family Photography – Holiday Gift Ideas

Ready to begin holiday shopping?

Fall is definitely the busiest time of year for family portrait photographers, especially in the Charlotte area of North Carolina.  Most parents book their Fall Family photography session because they want updated photographs for their annual holiday and Christmas cards.  But I love showing my clients beautiful, unique and thoughtful holiday gift ideas for family members using their moments captured during our photo session together.

Here are a few of my favorite holiday gift products, but just make sure to include a pack of tissues when presenting to Grandma, because these items have been known to make her cry:

Print Gallery Stands

Best Charlotte NC Family Photography Holiday Gift Ideas 2

Why I love this product

These are such a great gift for grandparents or parents.  The print comes complete on a wood stand with easel, so there is no frame purchase required and therefore the print truly stands out on a table or desktop and will match any decor.  Grandparents will love adding these beautiful display pieces to their tabletop filled with photos of their grandchildren.

 

Accordion Booklets

Charlotte NC Family Photographer Holiday Gift Giving Ideas

Why I love this product

We all know that grandmothers love having small photos on hand in their purse to show all their friends at the spur of the moment? Out to lunch with friends – look at my beautiful grandchildren!  The accordion booklets have 10 wallet sized images on the inside and one on the cover and it’s a great way to get a bunch of your favorite images from your session.  And since the accordion booklets come in sets of 3, there is always an extra for Mom to keep one for herself.

 

Classic Modern Frames with Torn Edge Prints

Charlotte NC Best Holiday Gift Ideas

Why I love this product

This is a beautiful fine art print with hand torn deckled edge paper that is mounted in a deep float-style frame with a white-on-white mat.  The presentation is stunning and your image is truly the focal point.  This is not your standard print in a frame and will make a treasured addition to the walls in either your own home or a grandparent’s home.

 

Wood Framed Ornament

Thoughtful Charlotte NC Photography Gift Ideas

Why I love this product

These handmade Organic Bloom wood ornament frames are adorable and unique.  Choose from either reclaimed wood or the custom painted frame to match the colors of your outfits. Whether hanging on your own tree or ordering for grandparents, aunts or uncles, these adorable frames will stand out among the many ornaments on display!  Each year, as you begin to decorate for the holidays, these adorable photos and frames will bring you back to the beautiful moments we created during your session.

 

Magnetic Monthly Calendar

Thoughtful Charlotte NC Holiday Gifts

Why I love this product

Personalized with 12 of your favorite photographs from your session, your magnetic monthly calendar can stick to the fridge, a file cabinet, or wherever pulls you. It has a month-at-a-glance view displaying one photo per month.  This is another great gift idea for grandparents or Mom that will tug at their heart strings every time they walk by or grab a glass of water from the fridge.  I have had one of these on my own refrigerator for the last 3 years, and my fridge would be incomplete without one.

Creating Authentic Family Moments | Top 11 Family Walking Together

Creating Authentic Family Moments in Charlotte

One of the lessons that I learned in my early years of family portrait photography came during a session with my own sister and her family.  The lesson:  As easy way to set the stage for creating authentic family moments with just a little instruction and a whole bunch of fun.

It was my very first year photographing families outdoors, and my sister and I scheduled a late Summer session.  We had already spent two hours in a park and the kids were getting tired.  But I wanted a truly amazing photograph for my sister of her whole family.  My sister looked at the hill nearby and said “If you want a photo of all the girls smiling, let them run down that big hill over there”.   I looked to the hill and I saw the light, and I mean literally – the light was stunning.

So, I sent the whole family up the hill while I laid down in the grass at a distance.  The whole family went running hand in hand down the hill and the smiles and giggles followed and an authentic family moment was created.  This photograph was created in September 2010 and a beautiful canvas print of this image still hangs on my sister’s wall in her family room.

Real Moments Charlotte NC Family Photography

As I have been compiling favorite moments over the last few weeks, I realized that some of my favorite photographs from my clients’ sessions are created in a very similar way.  But as you scroll through this list, you can see how a simple idea can highlight a family’s unique personality and create a beautiful and even magical moment in a classic photograph. So here are my . . .
