Charlotte, North Carolina Family Photographer | Childhood with a Pinch of Burberry

While I love meeting new clients and families, it is always such a thrill to photograph returning clients.  It’s even better when those clients start to feel like old friends and they make me feel like a part of their family.  I’m so grateful for the day I met this wonderful family and for being included in their lives.  I have had the pleasure of capturing adorable moments with their little boy multiple times, and he just gets cuter and cuter every time I see him.  They really are some of the sweetest and happiest people I know, and I find that I can’t stop smiling and laughing when I’m with them.

This session was our first completely outdoor session.  Of course, the original session date was scheduled for the day after the late October snowstorm in New York.  Needless to say, we rescheduled for a better day, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.   It was absolutely gorgeous and Historic Richmondtown in Staten Island made the perfect backdrop for our afternoon together.

And when you mix this adorable little man with his super-cute Burberry coordinated sweater and jeans, the end result is just really stinkin’ cute.

Enjoy!

Charlotte, North Carolina Family Photographer | Favorite Fridays – Displaying Photographs in Your Home

Charlotte, North Carolina Family Photographer | Favorite Fridays – Displaying Photographs in Your Home

Today’s Favorite Friday blog share is about one of my favorite things to do – helping my clients decide how to display their new family photographs in their home.  While I love photographing families and capturing wonderful moments and memories for my clients, I also absolutely love when my clients choose to display the images from those sessions in their home.

Did you know that displaying family photographs in your home can help improve a child’s self-confidence by giving them a sense of belonging?  Being a mother, that is almost reason enough for me.  But I also believe that adding family photographs to your walls adds a natural warmth to your home, and also just makes you smile more from glancing at the sweetness of the moments we captured that day.  Who couldn’t use a few extra smiles each day?

But I often find that my clients are not sure how to display these images in their home, and have difficulty deciding what to order on their own.  That is why I meet with all of my clients just a few weeks after their session for an ordering consultation, and I bring customized ideas for the best ways to display the images from their sessions on their walls.

Here are just a few examples of the beautiful gallery-wrapped canvas cluster ideas I have prepared for my clients.  There are many more options and layouts, and I would love a chance to work with your family to add happiness and warmth to your walls and home.
