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.

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!

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.
