About Me


Hello there!  I’m Carrie. 

I live in Huntersville, NC and serve the greater Charlotte, NC area.  I specialize in artistic maternity, newborn and family photography.  My love for photography began when I met my husband.  He loved cameras and dabbled in photography as a hobby.  He taught me about f-stops and shutters speeds and I enjoyed taking photos of our travels and our dogs.  My love for photography blossomed when my first baby was born in 2009.  I was constantly taking photos of him (when I look back I see lots that looked like Pinterest fails but I love them just the same).  

In 2010, I started taking photography workshops and classes.  I was obsessed.  I wanted to learn everything that I could about this new passion of mine.  I opened my business in 2012 and by God's grace my business continues to grow.  That hunger for learning and growing in the world of photography has never stopped.  Each year, I take several workshops to stay at the top of my field.  My three poor children suffer from COPS (Children of Photographer Syndrome).  They beg me to put the camera down.  You can see their cute faces in the "Personal" section of my portfolio.

I love to work with families who are up for some fun at their session.  The families that choose to work with me appreciate beautiful photography and they like the artful candid moments just a touch more than the "everybody smile" portraits (though I always include those in too).  They are relaxed, easy going and have a great sense of style.

I have a special fondness for mommies and daddies that are having their very first baby after experiencing pregnancy or infant loss or infertility.  Having experienced such loss myself, these parents have a special place in my heart.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I look forward to getting to knowing you.  Call me at 704.651.7173.
