I had the pleasure of finding Michelle online and LOVE her enthusiasm and knowledge of skin care and the services she offers at Eclat Clinical Esthetics in Huntersville. Here are some pictures of her new location, check it out! She’s booking up fast and I imagine next year she will be booking one month in advance. https://www.eclatmedspa.com/
As some of you might know from my previous blog post that I have begun shooting real estate photography and am expanding into interior design photography here in Charlotte and met the Fabulous Kira Kurc of Kira Kurc Designs a few months ago and we became fast friends!
Her willingness to let me photograph her own home helped me to land a nice job shooting with Airbnb for their Airbnb Plus program that recently launched. I’m happy to showcase one of her most recent clients Desert Boho Studio which I photographed recently in Midtown Charlotte. Check it out below!
I’m sooooo excited to share that I have been contracted to photograph luxury real estate for Airbnb Plus in the North Carolina high country area near Boone and Blowing Rock!!!
I wasn’t certain I would get the contract eventhough I have been shooting professionally for 15 years and have photographed dozens of luxury homes in North Florida.
I needed a fresh portfolio adhering to Meero’s strict guidelines and since moving to North Carolina…. well, let’s just say I don’t know many people and my apartment is pretty bare since most of my furniture is still in Florida so I was ecstatic when Kira Kurc of Kira Kurc Design in Charlotte agreed I could photograph her beautifully decorated apartment, at the last minute.
I initially reached out to Kira months ago via Instagram when I saw her great Instagram page and loved her work. Within 48 hours I was able to create a select set of images from her home without imposing too much and was notified 24 hours later that I had been accepted to photograph with Airbnb Plus.
This is especially wonderful since it will take awhile for me to build my photography business in this area and I LOVE photographing high end real estate with unique and artistic decor. If you are in need of an interior decorator to help bring your living space to life, I HIGHLY recommend you contact Kira! She’s great and AFFORDABLE! Thank you Kira and I’ll be seeing you in 2019 to photograph your next clients’ finished property!
Several years ago I photographed Rosie and her family when the boys were pretty young…. well they aren’t anymore! It was kind of surreal seeing them again, all grown up and even though they didn’t remember me, I remembered them and our photo shoot at Alys Beach when they were little. Rosie and her sons Boden, Jeffrey and Jeremy came back down to Florida for a visit and we were able to squeeze in a short family session during their vacation. Can I just say I want to look like Rosie when I grow up… (even though I’m older than her) Lol. I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of her just by herself. It was great seeing all of you again and thank you for contacting me for another photo shoot!
Erika and Gary were married in July at Seascape Beach Resort in Miramar Beach, Florida along the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Coast. I’m not gonna lie, it was WARM and I’m not sure if it was nerves or the heat or both…. but it’s a good thing Gary had a handkerchief with him. Lol. Sorry Gary. 😉
Erika was truly stunning and was surrounded by her besties that were just as lovely. This wedding was a first for me in that their ring bearer actually had the real wedding rings and definitely earned the title of “Ring Security” while walking up to deliver the rings, the Law and Order them song played and he actually wore a real officer’s badge! The sun popped out right as we went into sunset pictures of the bride and groom and we were able to get some great images. Their reception was FULL of laughs from toasts given by loved ones, a particularly special grooms cake of the Pittsburgh Steelers and quite possibly the first time I’ve ever seen a bouquet toss go to three different women, simultaneously. Here is a sneak peek of their wedding day images, I hope everyone loves them! Congratulations Erika and Gary!

Sherri and Brian contacted me recently inquiring about a maternity session/birthday session/beach session while they were in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida on vacation. Brian was celebrating his 30th Birthday and he and his lovely wife Sherri were squeezing in one last summer vacation before thier first child is born later this year. We had great weather and Sherri had the BEST blue flowing maternity dress in honor of her baby boy. I was so honored to be referred this sweet couple by Brian’s twin brother Chris, whom I photographed last year when he and his now wife were here on vacation. Congratulations Sherri and Brian on your Baby Bear debuting in November!
There is something about people from Tennessee, maybe it’s because my grandmother was from there or maybe it’s the music…. but Mariah and Matt had literally one of the best receptions (and weddings) of all time. Mariah is beautiful and sweet and kind and Matt is a true gentleman who fell in love with Mariah immediately. They were married at Carillon Beach recently surrounded by a ton of of great friends and family who braved an outside wedding and reception in the steamy Florida summer heat . 😉
Their beach ceremony was lovely with a custom made arbor and seashell toss at the end. The reception was held on the Resort Green in Carillon Beach and was surrounded by palm trees, bristro lighting above and beautiful Lake Carillon in the background. An awesome dinner that included fried chicken and shrimp and grits was served and they even had a macaroni and cheese bar at the end of the night. Mari Darr Welch helped me photograph the ceremony and reception and Paul Kirker, of GTS Entertainment had Everyone dancing the night away to some of the best music I’ve EVER heard at a wedding reception. They had a bubble send off at the end and left for their honeymoon two days later. Congratulations Mariah and Matt!
Gloria called me a few weeks ago to discuss having her family photographed while they were staying on the beautiful beaches of 30A during their vacation in Florida… but there was a twist. Her oldest daughter, Keisha, was going to be proposed to by her long time high school sweetheart Ken, and she wanted it photographed. After a great conversation learning all about her family, and her oldest daughter’s relationship with her soon to be son-in-law, we had our game plan and everything went perfectly! Keisha said yes! We had a perfect sunset, captured and created great images and well… maybe they will have me photograph their wedding. 😉 Congratulations Keisha and Ken!!!
