Harrisburg-nc-senior-portraits | hickory ridge high school | Kaley by Staci Noel

When Kaley first came in with her mom and we discussed what she wanted for her senior portraits I knew this was going to turn out to be one hell of a series of images! I am so glad that they decided on the option to include multiple sessions for senior portraits and even added on a cheer session to capture all the important things in Kaley's life as a senior at Hickory Ridge High School! This girl COULD NOT take a bad picture! We had so much fun each time we got together for a session and there were more than a few outtakes that were blurry because I was laughing so hard:) At the end of the day we got an amazing set of portraits that highlight everything amazing about Kaley and I know that she will look back on these years from now and remember how awesome her senior year experience was! One way to make sure you get all of the images from your senior sessions is to do an album - check out the images from Kaley's album design below!

mason's 6 month session | charlotte baby photographer staci noel photography by Staci Noel

I have photographed Mason since he was inside of his sweet momma's belly! I couldn't believe how huge he had gotten in the six months since his newborn session when we got back together at their friend's gorgeous farm just outside of Charlotte! Of course we had to take pictures in the adorable wagon and all together with mom and dad for an updated family portrait!

This location and the light are the perfect backdrop to highlight all of the adorableness in this little country baby - and he didn't disappoint with tons of cute smiles and hilarious personality!

charlotte-family-photographer-holiday mini sessions by Staci Noel


I know, I know, it's not exactly Fall yet; in fact right now it's 90+ here in Charlotte and everyone is still sweltering at their summer BBQs's, probably trying to squeeze in those last days at the beach and eeeeeking out the final days at the pool before all of the kiddos head back to the classroom.

But before you know it IT WILL BE that time of year when everyone's minds return to school schedules, fall sports, cooler autumn weather (FINALLY!!!!), and looking forward to the holidays to come! With all of that comes the mad scramble to get that final family picture for 2015 that you can use for those gorgeous holiday cards!

I always try to save several weekends in October and even November for family shoots, but inevitably I end up having to turn people away who might not remember to book until the last minute. And I know there are several newborn clients who would love to do family images but don't want a full portrait session since they have just done their newborn images. So with those things in mind this year I'm going to offer a weekend of mini sessions. 

These sessions will be 30 minutes and will include digital files. As many of you know I have redesigned my portrait offerings to focus less on digital files and more on actual prints so this will only be a very limited offering that includes digitals; I realize that makes sense for holiday cards and so this time of year it made sense. I will be at one outdoor location with one holiday set that includes my gorgeous antique sofa and Christmas decor. If families wish to do portraits without the set we will shoot in foliage nearby. 

The amount of sessions WILL BE LIMITED! I may be able to add an additional weekend in later but I will only have 8 slots open for this initial offering and I CANNOT GUARANTEE MORE WILL OPEN beyond that. The dates are October 10th and 11th and sessions will take place in the afternoon/early evening starting at around 4pm.

If you would like to book your Fall Mini Session, contact me at staci@stacinoelphotography.com with your preferred date and I will email you available times. Booking requires a $25 fee which is applicable to your session fee. Bookings will be on a first come, first serve basis.

If you would prefer a full family session I'm happy to discuss planning out an entire custom designed experience - please visit the Contact Me page and fill out my design questionnaire and I will be in touch soon!
