Charlotte Photography Session Types | Mini Sessions | Full Sessions

Is a Full or Mini Session Right For You?

I offer a several different types of photo sessions to meet the needs of growing Charlotte families.  Custom Full Family Sessions are perfect for life’s major milestones like the birth of a new baby, a birthday celebration or family reunion.  Mini sessions work well when you are looking to update family photos for a holiday card or you want to participate in one of my themed mini sessions like Santa Claus or Glitter & Glamour.

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 and generally last two to three hours.  Due to the time intensive nature of these sessions, I accept a limited number of newborns 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

I can customize a Full Family Photography Session to reflect your family’s personality interests.  Sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home or I can recommend a beautiful location 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.


Fall Family Mini Sessions & Spring Family Mini Sessions

I am pleased to offer family mini sessions select dates at specific locations in the fall and spring.  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 and photos are uploaded to for easy holiday card ordering.  Be sure to sign up for my newsletter or like my Facebook page for family mini session announcements.  Please don’t delay as they do sell out every year.

Glitter & Glamour

Every February, I offer Glitter Photo Sessions in the studio to all the little girls who dream of being a princess or just want to come play with endless glitter.  We provide couture dresses and have featured brands such as tutu du monde and Nellystella.  Let your little girl feel like a princess for a day!  You can check out our 2017 Glitter & Glamour Mini Sessions here.

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.


I am a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers and am proud to have placed in their International Image Competition in the Newborn Photography category.  You can find out more about me here.
