Photographing photographers is always a tall order and though some may be a bit nervous to do so, I find it exhilarating as they know what will look good for the camera. The Petrinos of Charlotte Photography allowed me to photograph them and their newborn daughter Makenzie in their home. I feel that the photos of new parents interacting with their precious baby are so valuable to them as a family, more than just the posed (if not overposed) photos that we typically see on Pinterest of babies. I really enjoy capturing the genuine love and joy of new parents.

I had the chance to do a quick session with the Keeners of in the French Quarter of uptown Charlotte a couple months ago. Their little girl is growing so fast!
