From Newborn to Senior Portraits...


I just wrapped up an absolutely magical senior session with Charlize at the Biltmore Estate, and let me tell you, it was one for the books! The day couldn't have been better—the weather was perfect, the lighting was divine, and Charlize absolutely shone. It was just one of those days where everything clicked.

Capturing senior portraits is something truly special to me. There’s a certain magic in photographing this pivotal moment in a young person’s life, right before they spread their wings and venture off to college or whatever path they choose. It’s a privilege to freeze this moment in time for them to look back on in the years to come.

What makes this session even more meaningful is that I’ve been photographing Charlize since she was a newborn! I was there for her first photos, and now, here we are at her senior session. Watching her grow up and capturing these moments along the way—it’s a feeling like no other. (I've included a few images from her newborn session at the end of this post.)

Our session was the perfect blend of fun and carefree. Charlize brought such a great energy to the shoot, and we shared plenty of laughs as we made our way through the beautiful Biltmore Estate.

And I can't forget to mention how wonderful it was to hang out with Charlize's mom again. She honestly hasn't aged a day! It was like catching up with an old friend, chatting about life and reminiscing about when Charlize was just a baby. The whole experience was just so relaxed and special.

Reflecting on this session, I'm reminded of how fortunate I am to have been doing this for the past 20 years. Documenting these baby-to-graduate journeys is truly an honor. I'm grateful to be a part of these families’ lives and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Charlize.
