Valentine's Day Portraits | Charlotte, North Carolina Family Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

What a fun start to 2019! Since I am slowing down a bit this year to spend time with Evan, I decided to offer Valentine’s Day mini sessions this year. I thought about offering various mini sessions throughout the year because I can choose the dates, which gives me a little more flexibility in my schedule. I have never offered mini sessions, but these were a complete success!

The reason these turned out so cute is thanks to Evelyn Henson! I don’t even remember where I saw her Confetti Hearts Wall for the first time, but I knew at that moment that I had to chose it as the backdrop for Valentine’s sessions. It is a 40ft wall with beautiful colorful hearts and phrases, and it was finished just in time for this event! I would love to see more public art like this around Charlotte, so make sure you follow Evelyn, visit the mural, and tag #confettiheartswall. The more excited we get about these, the more likely they are to start popping up around our communities.

I have so many favorites from each session that I wanted to share, so it was very hard to narrow it down. These sessions made for some fun family photos, mother-daughter photos, and sibling photos! Take a look at my favorites from each session below, and comment with your favorite!

 

Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions

Confetti Hearts Wall

“I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you.” - Ben Folds

"I love you more than yesterday, but less than tomorrow."

“There is only one happiness in life: to love and be loved.” - George Sand

“Your flaws are perfect for the heart that’s meant to love you.” - Trent Shelton

Savannah Sitter Session | Charlotte, NC Baby Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Audrey hit the streets of Savannah, Georgia for her sitter session. We strolled along the beautiful streets near the picturesque squares full of gorgeous greenery, landscaping, and architecture. Even in the hustle and bustle of busy Saturday morning crowds, we were able to capture some beautiful images of Audrey. The perfectly manicured parks, trolleys, horse-drawn carriages, and spanish moss make Savannah, Georgia a dream location for a photographer!

Family of Three | Ballantyne, North Carolina | Charlotte Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

I met up with this sweet family of three in the park in Ballantyne, North Carolina. Looking at these photos, you’d never know that we were in the middle of a corporate park. This has been one of my favorite locations for a few years now, and I’m so glad I found it. It’s beautiful, convenient, and has so many great settings within a relatively small space. Once the leaves start changing, it’s the ideal place for a fall family session!

This family styled their session perfectly for the fall weather, even though the leaves haven’t truly started changing. The navy and blue palette is the perfect combination for this fun outdoor family session. Everyone looked comfortable and casual, and we had a great time making these beautiful images together. The lighting was perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better family to photograph!

Shirley Family | Fall Special 2016 | Charlotte, North Carolina Family Photographer | Krista Gantt Photography

Meet this sweet family of 4!  I was so grateful for the opportunity to photograph this family again this year.  I met Ashley in nursing school and later found out that we were both from the same hometown!  She allowed me to photograph her family last year at Glencairn Gardens in Rock Hill, South Carolina.  This year I met up with them at Falls Park in Greenville, South Carolina when I was in town visiting a friend.  Their boys have grown so much - a lot can happen in a year!  Take a look at this beautiful family and make sure to check out the surroundings.  This park is the perfect location for a fall family session!

Fall Special 2016 Booking is OPEN!!

The Krista Gantt Photography Fall Special 2016 is now open for booking!   Summer has come and fall is on its way!  You may have heard by now that I'm offering a *special* this fall!   

Dates, times, and locations are limited and are based on availability.  For family sessions, I'll photograph up to 5 people.  Additional family members are $25 per person.  Seniors, couples, and children are also welcome to jump in on this special!  

These fall portrait sessions are in addition to my regular newborn sessions and full time work as a nurse.  Therefore, I decided to go all digital and not include prints in the package.  This provides more flexibility and enables clients to add on additional items if desired.

Well, what are you waiting for?!  If you're ready, I'm ready!  Don't wait because based on the feedback I've been getting, these sessions will sell out.  This offer may not happen again, so check your calendars and book your session today!
