When it comes to capturing special moments, theres no better way than through a professional portrait experience with a Charlotte motherhood photographer. Whether youre looking for a family photo session, a maternity shoot, or a newborn session, a professional portrait experience is a perfect way to capture the beauty and love behind each special moment in life.

A portrait experience allows you to capture a moment in time that will never come again. When you look back on the photos from your session, youll remember the feeling of that moment and the emotion behind it. With a professional portrait session, youll have the opportunity to capture moments like a babys first smile, a toddlers first steps, or a mothers embrace. The photos you take will be a lasting reminder of these special moments and will be treasured for a lifetime. When you choose a Charlotte motherhood photographer, youll be able to capture the joy and beauty of a  family.

The reality is everyone truly values photography. When you are a busy mama managing schedules, events, and budgets, photography may not be the first thing you think of when you think of what things you invest in. But I promise you that you do VALUE it.

We frequently spend money on only temporary things, such as hair coloring/products, good food, quality furniture, trips to Target, etc.

But what is the longevity of these items? Do you remember what you bought the last thing you bought at the store, or you got home and wondered, “What did I even buy?”

The items we buy likely will not last long – or not as long as the photographs we cherish. I mean, truly – photographs are eternal.

It may appear easier to keep digital files of our most treasured moments. However, the reality is somewhat more intricate. Not only do we need to back up the files to each new device (because technology is great, BUT we all know it is not perfect.) We also need to download everything before our gallery expires, etc. Then maybe we enjoy the images here and there but the get lost in the black hole of the cloud!
As busy mamas, we may quickly pick a photographer, schedule the session, download the files and move on. Maybe you print a few of them. But unless you print on high-quality paper, the coloring might be off, and the image will not last.Hiring a professional photographer is the best way to ensure photos you can share with your family and friends for a lifetime.

As a Charlotte motherhood photographer, Katie Petrick Photography provides a portrait experience that is all about celebrating and honoring the bond between a family while taking away the stress of family portraits from the busy mama! This includes hair and makeup, clothing for mama and littles, custom framing, album design, etc. 

Reach out today and allow me the honor of documenting your family story.
