Hi! I'm Kira, a Charlotte based Newborn Photographer that absolutely loves to capture the beauty of a growing family welcoming a new baby.
As a photographer and a mom of two littles, I've learned the importance of photographing my little ones, even when I barely have time to shower. Balancing life with a new baby can be exhausting, and the time goes by way too fast.
A photograph lets us capture precious moments. Of course, we’re all taking plenty of photos with our phones or digital cameras and that’s great! But a different kind of image is captured when you hire a skilled professional to photograph these special times in your life.
My goal as a photographer is to capture those perfect images for you, down to every detail. A photograph that'll preserve an instant, a memory you’ll look at day after day, year after year, and treasure forever.
I believe my job as a Newborn & Portrait Photographer is to capture the natural beauty of your real family.
I was born outside of Boston and raised in Charlotte, but my heart and soul belong to the mountains. My passion for photography and the mountains came together when I went to Appalachian State University and completed my degree in Technical Photography. Nowadays, when I'm not chasing my little one around, I like to take the time to center myself with yoga, take long hikes with my dogs and husband, and enjoy sunsets on my back deck with good friends and a glass of red wine.
My mom taught me the art of nurturing. She passed away in 2016, two months before my wedding, and left me the daunting task of being the matriarch of my family. I carry her memory with me always and try to spread her loving spirit to everyone I meet and photograph. My mom and I used to watch hummingbirds together when she would paint on her back deck. Now anytime one pops up, I know that she’s stopping by to remind me that life goes on... and that that we shouldn’t waste a second of it.
“Working with Kira for our newborn photo shoot was such a pleasure! She was easy to work with and fun to hang out with (newborn shots take a bit of time). She is seriously amazing at what she does and the shots she got were incredible. She’s like a baby whisperer. She was also great with our other three kids when it was time to get some family/sibling shots! We truly enjoyed the photo shoot (unheard of with 4 kids!!) and the photos came out absolutely stunning! I highly recommend Kira!! Kira, I can not thank you enough!!😍”

“We had a FANTASTIC experience with Kira. We contacted Kira last minute on a Sunday about newborn pictures for my husband's birthday. She fit us in for a photo shoot 3 days later at her studio. The actual session was PERFECT. She did so well with my daughter. She honestly is a baby whisperer. Not only that but she was willing to be flexible with time the day of the session because babies can be difficult. She worked hard to get us our proofs in time to gift them to my husband for his birthday. The photos turned out beautiful. My experience was so great that I plan on booking 2 milestone appointments and a cake smash session. Kira is going to be my go to for photos. Watch out Kira, you're gonna get to see Averie grow up right in front of your camera lens!!! Thank you so much!”

We love her work so much that we will continue to choose her for all our future family pictures & we highly recommend her to everyone. She is very detailed, has LOTS of patience, very professional , REALLY LOVES babies, as well as her job! Lastly, she has an eye & a gift in being able to capture the most perfect moments in time! Thank you for being so wonderful & sharing in our memorable journey with our little man!”

“We chose Kira for an in home newborn session for our twins, Miles and Emmy, and we were extremely happy with how perfect the session was. I was worried they would be super fussy, but Kira and her assistant were so good with them and they did amazing. She gave me some great tips/instructions for me prior to the session that helped. She also brought so many options of clothing and wraps and we got so many great pictures. Kira is truly a professional and exceptional at what she does. We would definitely use her again for future photos of the babes!”
