Charlotte Newborn Baby Photographer | Baby C | Studio Session

In recent months, I’ve slowly moved away from in-home newborn sessions (although there are still some awesome ones coming up on the books!) to studio sessions. Now, I know you just thought of a 1990’s J.C. Penny’s studio in your head. You cannot help but picture it. Very dark, heavy, stiff. It’s very difficult to…

Charlotte Maternity Photographer |Dreamy Maternity Session | Fort Mill, SC

I love love love that these two soon-to-be-parents dressed up for their maternity session, and chose bold colors to compliment each other. Red was stunning for this new mama, and her dress was perfectly fitting. We photographed this in a sweet little SC town close to Charlotte, NC (where I am based.) Maternity sessions are…

Spring Mini Sessions at The Ivy Place

The Ivy Place is a gorgeous private home in Lancaster, SC just outside of Ballantyne, and the perfect spot for springs sessions for the family. The session will be April 14, and moms can include Hair and Make Up by my professional, award-winning stylist for an additional $125. ~ Session is for up to 5…

Holiday Baby | Newborn Baby Boy | Charlotte Family and Baby Photographer

Winter newborn sessions, and if I’m being honest, sessions in the winter in general have become my favorite time of year to photograph on-location. The light during the winter months is soft and clear and bright since so many of the leaves have fallen. Everything is less orange and green. And I can usually get…

Charlotte NC Newborn Photographer | Twins | Dreamy Session

For all my sessions, I include a simple setup of baby (ies) by themselves. I think this is important because it allows for uncluttered, timeless images of baby without being just “lifestyle”. Don’t get me wrong, I love lifestyle images, but if we have for a brief moment the ability to create something more, and…

Spring Baby Shower | Twins | Duke Mansion | Charlotte, NC

This adorable baby shower was such an awesome celebration of these sweet people and their little babies. The Duke Mansion is a classically southern cite to hold a little celebration (as well as a gorgeous wedding!) Their staff is hospitable and professional, making sure there this nothing left unattended. Truly a southern staple of grace and…

Uptown Charlotte | South Park Baby Shower | Pretty In Pink | Little Girl

Baby showers are one of my favorite events to photograph. The anticipation and excitement of your first baby is almost unmatched in this world. And gathering your close friends and family to celebrate this new little person is such a wonderful occasion. It’s a joy to photograph, and Erica and Jack’s baby shower was so…

Film + Photography | Bright New Additions to Amanda McQuade Photography

For years now, I’ve wanted to add film to my sessions. Way back before my children were born, before Charlotte and sweet tea and roads that intersect with themselves (hello, corner of Sharon and Sharon) there was LA and film and script-editing, PA work, and publishing. All back before I was a mommy. Before I…

2016 Fall Mini Sessions – Fort Mill SC Mini Photography – Charlotte NC Mini Sessions

It’s that time of year again. Back to school and endless driving little ones to ballet and soccer. But I love it. Cool breezes that carry the smell of apples and call for cozy sweaters. Minis are over for the 2016 year. Minis to come for Spring Peach Blossoms in early March! Thank you! Happy Holidays!…

Little Man | Charlotte Family Photography | Warm Sunset Light

When this sweet mom called to book a family session, I was so thrilled. I photographed this little boy when he was just a tiny thing, and to see him again after 6 months was a real thrill. Seeing your clients grow and change over time is so rewarding and just the best part of…

Little Sister Makes Two | Charlotte Newborn Baby Photographer

This little bundle of love and cuddles made her debut in October of last year, bringing sunshine and joy to her little family. Big sister was very excited and gentle with her new baby, and so enjoyed posing for pictures. These types of images are one of my favorite parts of my job. I picture…
