Charlotte Photographer Kristen Montgomery | Sessions

Charlotte Photographer

Hi, I am Charlotte photographer Kristen Montgomery.  I am a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers and am proud to have placed in their January 2014 International Image Competition (newborn).  Be sure to read more about me here.  I am pleased to offer a wide variety of photography sessions to meet your needs.

Newborn Photography

Newborn photography sessions can take place in my studio or in your home for a lifestyle newborn session.  Newborn sessions typically take place in the first two weeks after your baby is born.  Sessions generally take two to three hours and are completely customized for you.  Due to the time intensive nature of these sessions, I offer a limited number of them each month.  If you are expecting, I highly recommend you reach out to me early in your pregnancy.  I offer maternity and newborn photography packages as well as First Year Baby plans so that you can capture all of your little ones first year milestones.


Custom Family Photography

Family Photography sessions are customized to reflect your family’s personality interests.  Sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home.  Often, these galleries are very candid because everyone is generally at ease.  We can also head to your favorite park or even a gorgeous field.  If you don’t have a specific location in mind, I am happy to suggest one of my favorite places to photograph families in and around Charlotte.  I offer a number of all inclusive packages to make the process easy and straightforward for you.  Packages can include premium prints, heirloom albums, canvases or even frames.  All packages include digital files.

Travel Photography

If you have a special event or vacation planned, I am available for travel.  I regularly visit Hilton Head Island and often hold beach sessions there.  Like many people who now call Charlotte home, I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio and travel there in the fall.  While there, I offer family sessions in the gorgeous Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation.


Fall Family Mini Sessions & Spring Family Mini Sessions

I am pleased to offer family mini sessions twice a year.  Family mini sessions are offered on select dates at a specific location in the fall and spring and are very popular.  These are great options if you are looking for a quick and easy session to document your growing family.  The fall family mini sessions are especially popular as many people use these photos for their annual holiday cards.  To take some of the holiday stress off, I also upload your photos to or TinyPrints so that you can easily order cards with your gorgeous new family photos.  Be sure to check the blog or my Facebook page for family mini session announcements.
