The Lanning Family: Charlotte Family Photographer

Candice and Dan are the creators behind The Beautiful Mess Photography and not only are the super talented but they are living their dreams.  A little over a year ago they sold their home, bought land, built their dream home and have started a farm.  You can find all their farm and home pictures

Charlotte Family on Film: Charlotte Family Film Photographer

I’ve been wanting to shoot a family on film for a while and am pretty lucky that Brooke and Charlie were kind enough to be my guinea pigs.  I couldn’t wait to see little Hayes either.  I went through the whole session and at the end remembered that I didn’t snap any digital, so I

Sara + Eric’s beautiful Yacht Sunset Session

We had a great time exploring and documenting this sweet couple at the Peninsula Yacht Club.   Not only was it a beautiful location and a beautiful couple but the light was amazing.  We even got a chance to use the clubs old wood boat for a few photos.  As you can see,  Sara and Eric also had some

Nate Turns 3: Family Horse Farm Session

I truly look forward to photographing this family every year…You can look back at some of their previous sessions here, here and here.   Nate is so much fun and always so cheerful.  Here are some of my favorites from their session on the horse farm. ^Because walking backwards is the cool thing

Clark Family: Charlotte NC Family Photographer

It was a very frigid morning the day of our session.  Baby Airlee wasn’t too amused with the photo session at first…but we still managed to get a handful of great smiles and cuddle moments.  She has the cutest little giggle and prettiest little eyes.  Enjoy a few of my favorites of her and

Peindl Family: Charlotte, NC Family Photographer

I always get excited to document a family the second, third, fourth time around.  It so fun to see these little ones grow each year and get to know them.  Little miss Lily and her parents are one of those families.  How adorable is she?  I had a great time exploring amongst the fields with her and

Swiney Family: Charlotte Family Photographer

I just love this little fella!  Who knew, all you have to do is run up behind him and “get him” and he giggles like crazy.  Anyhow, he was full of smiles and rocked his sessions so I wanted to share my favorites.  Enjoy!

Baby Robert: Charlotte, NC Newborn Photographer

I’ve been so privileged to get so many returning customers and this sweet family is one of them.  I’ve photographed them since their first born Sydney, was a newborn.   She was so giddy over her “Robert” and lit up when she got to hold him.  Enjoy a few of my favorites.

Marlena + Jameson: Part of Create Love Project

I’ve held off on posting this for a while because I have had a hard time thinking of the right words to tell their story.  At the end of last year I was feeling a little drained and discouraged.  I wanted to do something really meaningful with photography…something that would mean the world

Thea Turns One: Charlotte Family Photographer

How incredibly adorable is Thea in the midst of this beautiful Peach Orchard?    After hearing that Thea’s favorite food was Peaches, it made this location even more special and perfect.   I’ve known Angie and her family for a while now, and had the honor of photographing their

Nate turns 2: Charlotte Family Photographer

I had so much fun at this session.  This little boy just melts my heart.  It may partly be because I’ve been photographing him since he was a newborn, and partly because he reminds me so much of my own little boy.  We met up at The Big Rock Nature Preserve and Nate had a great time just

Keena + Ryan + Zoë: Picnic Engagement

I couldn’t be more happy for Keena and Ryan.   Ive known Keena for a very long time (we went to school together) and I’ve had the honor of documenting her maternity pictures, Zoë’s newborn pictures, and her 1 yr. portraits.  Im so excited to be able to document another great

Matted Folios

This year we’ve added these beautiful matted folios to our products.  Our photo sessions always include a print credit because to me getting your images in print is SO important.  Having the digital files are great and wonderful too, but if you walk in our home you will also see prints all
