About the Artist
Krista Gantt Photography is a full-service newborn, baby, child, family, and portrait photographer based out of Charlotte, North Carolina and serving surrounding areas like Mint Hill, Matthews, Ballantyne, and Huntersville. She is a proud member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers.
Krista is a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse and is an expert at working with babies of all gestational ages. She especially loves caring for preemies and their families, and sharing her love and compassion with them during this very vulnerable time. In 2016, she began offering complimentary portraits to NICU families in hospitals in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. She entered one image of a NICU baby into the National Association of Neonatal Nurses' Faces of Neonatal Nursing Photo Contest in 2016 and won. The image was featured on the front cover of the February issue of Advances in Neonatal Care. Krista was also published in the May/June 2017 issue of Click Magazine where she wrote an article about tips for photographing babies in neonatal intensive care units.
Krista Gantt Photography is licensed and insured. Krista has been trained in the art of newborn posing and safety, and has studied and learned from some of the best newborn photographers in the industry. She invests her time and energy into her photography education so that she can provide her clients with a comfortable and safe experience.
Krista has always had a passion for art and creativity. She received her first film camera as a gift from her grandmother. She eventually used that very camera to take photos in her first photography class in high school, where she also learned how to develop film images in a dark room. From then on, her love for photography continued to blossom.
Krista’s goal is not only to provide you with images that will evoke emotion, but also photographic artwork to display these priceless moments in time. She strives to share her talents in order to gift parents with memories that will otherwise be forgotten.
Things she cannot live without: Michael, Burt's Bees lip balm, music, blankets, cheese, lotion, consistency, raw cookie dough, traveling, naps on the beach, anything cinnamon sugar, and pizza. Duh.
Things she can live without: loud noises, styrofoam, spiders, newspaper, cornbread, unsharpened pencils, and asymmetry.
Other items worth noting: She wears gloves when she washes dishes and prefers her chocolate chip cookie dough without the chocolate chips.
