Maddie was my first spring portrait session this season. Some clients are hesitant to book their sessions this early, but I gotta tell you, it was perfect! While the flowers and trees here in Charlotte, North Carolina haven’t fully bloomed, or in some cases, even begin to bloom, we were able to make use out […]

It’s official! After much contemplation, I have decided to retire the NBP Model Team for the upcoming Class of 2023. Many factors have led me to this decision and it was done with a heavy heart. I have LOVED working with and getting to know all the models with who I’ve worked with over the […]

Y’all my busy senior spring season was seriously delayed this year because of Corona. I shot way farther out into the season than I ever normally would. Here is another post shutdown session with a senior guy from Parkwood High School. Hogan is an avid golfer so naturally he wanted to do his senior pictures […]

Marvin Ridge High School Class of 2020 Senior girl portraits

This winter I had the honor of photographing one of my dearest friends son for his senior pictures. We headed to Downtown Waxhaw, a suburb of Charlotte, NC. Although not technically, because it’s a different county, but, as usual I digress. I love taking the guys to Waxhaw for their senior pictures because it is […]
