Charlotte, NC Family Photographer | Even when they are not so little . . .

As a family photographer, I truly believe there is never a bad time for family portraits. It doesn’t matter the age of your children, younger or older, it’s always a great time to update your photographs.  Children deserve to have tons of beautiful images and photographs with their parents that they will keep and treasure years into the future.  When children are teenagers, it’s awesome to remind them of the importance of family and the closeness they share with their family members.  As children get older, they often start to realize that their parents are their best friends and their biggest fans and champions.  These relationships are so fun to capture in images for both parents and children. During this particular session,  I especially loved showing these  beautiful girls just how stunning they really are, and my favorite photographs from the day were the ones we created  of the sisters together.  Their incredibly close friendship just shines right through in these photographs.  Through thick or thin, these sisters will forever be each other’s best friend.

NJ Senior Portrait Photographer

What exactly does being Senior Ambassador or representative mean?

I need high school students in the Class of 2015 (current HS Juniors), that are outgoing, fun and comfortable in front of the camera, and looking to have an incredible experience with their high school senior portrait session.  Modeling experience is absolutely NOT necessary. The goal is to have fun, and create images that show your true personality!

What’s in it for you?

Participants selected for the 2014 Ambassador Program are eligible to receive over $850 worth of products and services, starting with your own custom senior photo session.  Want a chance to feel like a model for a day?  We will coordinate hair and make-up for your session as well to enhance the experience and ensure that you do feel like a model for your session!

How do I get involved?

High School Senior Ambassador Sessions are available for the following dates during High School Spring Breaks.  Sessions will take on place location at local parks and downtown areas.  Possible locations include: Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Westfield, Summit, Chatham, Berkeley Heights, and Metuchen. While most sessions will be outdoors and on location, if the weather doesn’t cooperate for that day, we can do an indoor studio session at our new studio in Westfield, NJ located at 7 Elm Street above Eileen Fisher.
