Charlotte, NC | Teens and Seniors Photographer – Beautiful Maria


Photograph a beautiful girl that is also your niece is a special and fun photo shoot. I had such a good time photographing her in the beautiful fall colors, in one of my favorites places.

My goal with every teen and senior session is to make  them to realize how beautiful they are and get them comfortable in front of the camera. I want to convey their personality  and their beauty. I think that these photos convey Maria’s inner sweetness, and it is clear that she looks gorgeous.

Charlotte, NC | The heart of my inspiration

I always say I love what I am doing and I love my job, but I never explain why?

As a photographer, this TED Talk I posted below spoke volumes to me. I feel that what she goes into really explains some of the motivation behind the work I do myself.

But I will only add that the feeling can go beyond retouching a photo, as Becci Manson explains, it can also retouch lives. The experience of creating a memory with art or photography in the first place can obviously have a touching effect on lives. Including the artist or photographer.

Creating these memories has been the majority of my work. But the ability to give something back after it has been taken away is something that really inspires me. It brings out that desire to learn more, to grow, and to do better at giving people what they need. Be that a photo to remember loved ones, restoration of old memories, or even creating new memories with that special mix of art and photography.





Charlotte, NC | Children’s Photographer – Mini Session at her home

It’s always an honor to be asked to work for clients again. I first met Miss L when she was 6 month old, now she is almost 2 years old!

We had a Mini Session at her home, it was a beautiful sunny day with a little snap of chill in the air. Look at her beautiful and natural smile. Cheese? no thanks. To me, images should always reflect their blossoming personality, genuine look and the pure innocence of childhood.

Charlotte, NC | Family Photographer – Mr. G. is the winner of the October Giveaway!

I am so exited to share images from this session! Mr. G was the winner of  the Emotion Art Photography portrait session Giveaway!  He shared the session with mom, dad and the little brother C. These two boys are just too cute!

Our session together was fun, complete with laughter  and silliness. We found colorful leaves and golden sunlight. It was perfect.

The single most rewarding part of my work as a child photographer is watching children as they grow, I want to thank you SO MUCH to mom and dad for giving me the opportunity to capture their images and personalities that let me produce portraits and lasting memories that I know you will cherish forever

D Family,

Thank you so much!

Charlotte, NC | Children’s Photographer – Why do I love Autumn?

Autumn is a photographers dream season. It’s the time when nature explodes with color. Golden yellows, oranges and read leaves,  beautiful blue skies and mornings and evenings  becoming chilly.

Autumn photos are always a something special.

To me Autumn, in Charlotte, NC is a time of great bounty, great batty and great hope. That is probably why I love it so much!

Charlotte, NC | Family Photographer – Styling your Session

Some clients find it difficult to decide what to wear to their session and it is an important decision. How you dress your family plays a huge role in the success of your final images. Little details are important such as hats and accessories, shoes (or no shoes) and whether each family members clothing will look nice when photographed together. Location is another important aspect and this will also influence clothing choices. A lovely flowing summer dress would look beautiful in a grassy field where as a more hip and trendy outfit would better suit an urban location.

With all these decisions to make it is no wonder that some people feel overwhelmed or unsure of their choices so Emotion Art Photography have now introduced a session styling service.

How it works: At the Pre-Session consultation we will discuss the type of session you had in mind, what feel you would like for your photos and any ideas that you would like to incorporate into your session. We will discuss activity ideas (depending on the age of your child) and location and then work out together what your family will wear. Together we will go through your wardrobe choosing clothing that would best suit your session and I will bring some items that I have that may compliment our choices.

Great outfits and accessories combined with the location of your session can really make for beautifully styled photos, the Pre-Session consultation also gives us time to chat about ideas and for me to get to know you, your hobbies, interest and your unique personality.

A perfect fall outfit <3

They are just incredible people and I had a pleasure of taking their pregnancy photos. They wanted to capture this moment in time; the addition of a baby to their lives.

For me, maternity photos should be dreamy, artistic and romantic, and these are some of my favorite images.
