Summer has come and fall is on its way! You may have heard by now that I'm offering a *special* this fall! These sessions are going to be incredible!! I chose three great locations and I can't wait to see what you all choose! I had a lot of requests lately for family sessions or photos of children, so I have decided to open up a few dates for this year!!!
These sessions are available for families, children, seniors, couples, individuals, and best friends who would like a discounted and abbreviated portrait experience! For family sessions, I'll photograph up to 5 people. Additional family members are $25 per person.
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 packages. This provides more flexibility and enables you to add on additional items if desired. Ask to see my a la carte menu! You'll also be able to order add-ons right in your online gallery! Make sure to ask me about my high quality art pieces before ordering.
I chose three different locations that I love equally! Each location has multiple settings and different little hidden surprises, and they all photograph beautifully in the fall! You really can't go wrong - they are all worth the drive!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you only offer sessions in the Charlotte area?
At this time, I am only offering sessions to those in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. I still work full time as a nurse which means 12-14 hour work days. I also have to make time for me time, husband time, and family time. When I find more than 24 hours in the day, I'll start traveling!
Why aren't there many sessions available on weekends?
I work some weekends and have events scheduled on some weekends. I'm also traveling to Greenville, Atlanta, and San Antonio this fall! Therefore, the Fall Special sessions take place on the "leftover" days. I did schedule some sessions on the weekends, so if you're quick, you might be able to snag one! I know everyone doesn't have full days off like we nurses do, but if you value photography and the memories I can capture for you, you'll make it work! : )
Why are the sessions only 30 minutes long?
The Fall Special 2016 is designed to work well with those who have children who are on the move as well as those who have a very busy lifestyle! Young children don't typically tolerate being directed for much longer than 20-30 minutes. Men don't love being in front of the camera, so they tend to enjoy shorter sessions. When you're man is just getting comfortable being in front of the camera, the session is over! Quick and painless! : )
How many family members can be photographed at the session?
The Fall Special sessions are limited to 5 family members. Each additional person is an additional $25.
Can we do an outfit change?
Because these sessions are designed to be quick and painless, we'll want to make the most of our time together. Therefore, please stick to only one outfit.
Are pets allowed at my session?
Furry friends are a part of your family, so why shouldn't they be allowed?! Just bring an extra set of hands to help wrangle them during the session. If they aren't the kind of pet that can "pose" for photos, perhaps they should stay home for this one.
Will you add on more dates?
I can't make any promises!
How do I book a session?
Contact me to arrange a time and date for your session. I will then send you an invoice for the session retainer and a contract to sign electronically. Both items are due 2 weeks prior to your session. After both of those are received, you're officially on my schedule!
Is there a discount if I am a friend or if I work with you?
I thought hard about this one... To avoid picking and choosing those who get the discount, I decided to discount everyone's session! The pricing on the booking page is the final discounted price. My rates are very reasonable and appealing to those looking for a quick and fun session!
Why do I only get 10 digital images in Package 1?
Most people end up absolutely falling in love with about 10-15 images from their session. There's always an opportunity to purchase more, but I wanted to invest a little less time in these sessions so that I have the opportunity to photograph more families this season! I didn't want anyone to get left out this time around! : )
Can I get a canvas or prints instead of the holiday cards in the Package 2?
Additional products are always available as add-ons, but there are no substitutions for the Fall Special 2016. Package 2 is designed for those who just can't settle on 10 images and know they'll need help with a holiday card. It's for those who simply don't have time to look for a design and want me to do all the hard work.
What if I'd like to order a few prints or a canvas?
You'll be able to add on additional products right from your online gallery! My products come from a professional print lab that is only available to professional photographers. The quality can't be beat! Let me know if you'd like to see some samples!
Why did you choose those 3 locations?
I chose the locations because I have photographed families at each location before, and I love how the images turned out! They all photograph beautifully in the fall! They are also in 3 different parts of the Charlotte area, which is more convenient to those traveling for their session.
What should I wear?
Check out my Pinterest board for ideas!
Here are my recommendations for a cohesive family or group fall session: Wear layers and coordinating colors, but don't match. Matching is so 1990s. Dresses are amazing because they flow and show movement with the fall gusts of wind! Boots are a yes and busy patterns are a no! I love neutrals (brown, ivory) but if you choose to bring in lots of colors, make sure they are colors that compliment the fall leaves and green grass. Navy, purple, brown, and ivory are always safe!
The most important thing to remember is that you should wear something that you're comfortable and confident wearing! If you're not relaxed and feeling your best, it will show in your photos!
