Can you say beautiful?  It was nearly impossible to take an unflattering headshot of the gorgeous woman.  Jackie is a portrait photographer’s dream come true.  The camera just loves her intense brown eyes and her natural flawlessness.  She is an incredibly talented actor whom I met through The Actor’s Lab.  I like to photograph actors because they are so expressive and usually unafraid of the camera.  I loved photographing Jackie because she was so willing to be herself and allowed me to capture her without any veils.  She also takes a great silly shot, which always makes me laugh.

 

I also LOVE that midway through our session it started torain.  Luckily I was photographing her in NoDa, so we went into Growlers for a delicious beer while we waited for the sprinkling to stop.

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 the family’s new addition and was always ready to stand in whenever I needed a model.

Christy and Napoleon, I loved capturing your beautiful family with my lens.  Congratulations and I hope you get a nap in soon …

Two-Month-Old Baby Portrait Session South Charlotte – Welcome to the world Vincent III

Vincent III was born on 11-5-12.  Two months later I had the pleasure of photographing this precious baby boy and his incredibly loving parents, LaToya and Vincent Jr.  Baby Vincent was the most laid back infant I have ever photographed—putting up with all the wardrobe changes and  silly positions.  He did not fuss until the very end.  Even then, it only lasted about one minute—just long enough for me to snap the last shot.  Thank you LaToya and Vincent for a wonderful afternoon and congratulations on the beautiful addition to your family.

Photographing the Children of Cambodia

What I found most striking about these beautiful children was the smiles on their faces despite the circumstances they are in.  As I ventured around, camera in hand,  they didn’t ask me for money, they just wanted to put up peace sign fingers and smile for the camera. These children, with so little means, taught me about happiness. For the first time I finally understood that true joy comes from within us, not from some external force.
