Uptown Charlotte Fashion Session

Uptown Charlotte Fashion Session

Thankfully the day was a gorgeous 70 degrees for this uptown Charlotte fashion session! Not bad for early February. But the wind was horrendous. It was blowing our hair EVERYWHERE! We spent most of the day pulling hair out of our eyes and wiping our drippy noses.  I would wait for slight breaks in the gusts and then click a few shots. Or try to make the wind work to my advantage. I love the wind, so I thought it was kinda cool, well except for the watery eyes and drippy nose part.


Featured -6 Publications in11 days!

I’m so excited to have several weddings, engagement & bridal sessions selected for features with the following publications. For years my clients would say, “your work belongs in a magazine”. To tell you the truth, I never really thought too much about making submissions to publications. I’ve always been more low key about gettting myself “out there”. My focus was more on  my clients and my work. Content with long hours in front of the computer. Besides, marketing was never my strength. But with Two Brights lights it makes submitting so easy!
