Artistic Family Portrait Session in Charlotte, NC | Meet the Taefi Family

Ballantyne Family Portrait Photographer – The Jenkins

Jumping into a pile of leaves. Vibrant yellows, oranges and reds.  Pumpkin pie.  Perfect crisp weather. Busting out the scarves.  Those are just a few reasons I LOVE fall. It is also my favorite time to photograph families.  There is so much to capture … so much fun to be had, and nature lends a […]

Newborn Baby Photographer Charlotte, Bodhi’s First Family Portrait Session

I’ve photographed a fair amount of babies but I have never met a newborn that was as alert, active and curious as Bodhi. This little baby was a joy to photograph because he had so many expressions.  I was also impressed by his older sister, Lucy, the Weimaraner/Chocolate Lab mix.  She was incredibly gentle with […]

Children’s Author S.L. Lurz and Her Pups

Ok, so Sully and Maggie Lee aren’t puppies anymore, but they still play like puppies.  Photographing dogs always keeps me on my toes because they’ll go from sitting perfectly still to sprinting in an instant.  Sully and Maggie Lee were no exception. They loved to run around, snuggle up and at some point, they were even […]
