At Lisa Yvette Photography, we are honored to document two of the most important milestones in your life: Your pregnancy and the first days of your new little one's life. Our goal is to capture and freeze these precious moments in time with beautiful portraits that we know your family will cherish for years to come. Please take a look around our website to view our maternity and newborn galleries, and blog. Learn more about our portrait process here. If you are interested in booking a portrait session or have questions, please contact us.
I believe every woman who brings life into this world is especially beautiful and so I'm always excited when couples choose to commemorate their pregnancy with professional portraits. Maternity portraits are a once in a lifetime opportunity for each baby. This is your chance to beautifully capture you and your family intimately interacting with your baby while still in the womb. The laugher and emotional bonding during your portrait session will forever be with you and your spouse. And just imagine how happy your child will be as he/she grows and sees photos of you with him/her inside. The ideal time to photograph your belly is 30-36 weeks when it's nice and round. We prefer to photograph maternity outdoors but we can also work with you in studio. Wear one of our beautiful maternity gowns or your own clothing. While not required, we suggest professional hair and makeup styling to enhance your existing beauty and your portraits. Most sessions last 60-90 minutes depending on the number of participating family members.
A new baby is only new for a very short time. As much as we think we will remember the precious moments, we won't. The kissable, chubby cheeks, tiny fingers and toes, soft silky hair, pouty lips, and sweet newborn scent will soon be a faint memory. Newborn photography helps preserves these details. At your baby's portrait session, his/her comfort and safety is our top priority. We will patiently, safely, and delicately work with your baby taking as much time as needed for capturing cuddly poses. We'll also have plenty of time for feedings, changings, and soothing. We provide wraps, blankets, outfits, hair bows, as well as other props. If we don't have what you like, you are welcomed to bring your own. When finished, your family will have beautiful portraits that will forever remind you of the first few days of your baby's life. We recommend newborns be photographed in the first 10 days, when they are still very sleepy and flexible. Newborn sessions last a minimum of 2 hours and may take longer depending on the number of participating family members.
Hi! I'm Lisa and I'm so happy you're here. I'm a Charlotte NC based natural light and studio photographer with formal training in Information Technology. My love of photography was inspired as a child by my father who always documented my life with videos and photos. He helped me understand the importance of preserving memories through imagery. From middle school to adulthood, I have always owned a camera. I have albums and boxes full of heartfelt memories of my family and friends collected over the years. After working in technology for 14 years and finding myself an empty nester, I decided to take my love of photography to a higher level. I purchased my first DSLR camera in 2009 and gained education by purchasing books, attending mentoring workshops, and working with other photographers to improve my skills. Having the technical background was most definitely a plus in learning journey as professional photography is not as simple as pressing a button on a camera. Over the years, I have photographed many types of portrait clients...graduating seniors, families, children, weddings, etc. Though I continue to work with a variety of clients, I have grown passionate about capturing pregnant moms and newborn babies... their joy, beauty, and peacefulness. It is a privilege for me get to know you while capturing wonderful moments of your pregnancy and newborn's first days of life. It is also my goal to preserve these special memories for you with beautifully printed images that will be enjoyed for generations. Want to learn more about how I do this?

I look forward to meeting and working with you. :-)
Because every photographer's # question is "What are your prices?" :-)
