Hello there!  I'm Lisa Yvette. I'm a Charlotte, North Carolina based portrait photographer. My love of photography began as a child and grew as I documented my (now adult) daughters. Looking back at photos of them at different ages always conjures so many wonderful emotions.  I feel blessed to have photographic prints, especially in the digital world we live in today. As my girls were leaving the nest, I realized I wanted to create heartfelt memories for others as well. I purchased my first DSLR camera in 2009 and gained education by reading books, attending mentoring workshops, and working with other photographers to improve my skills. Finally, in March 2013, Lisa Yvette Photography was created. Having a technical background was a plus in my learning journey as professional photography is not as simple as pressing a button on a camera.

I specialize in capturing the beauty of pregnant moms, peacefulness of newborns, sweet innocence of babies, and joy of families.  I also photograph graduating seniors and a limited number of weddings each year. I enjoy giving my clients a unique, personalized portrait experience whether on location or in my studio.  

It is a privilege for me get to know you while photographing precious moments for your family. It is my goal to preserve these special memories for you with beautifully printed images that will be enjoyed for generations.

Contact me today at to book your custom portrait session or just to chat about how I can preserve your memories.

I look forward to meeting and working with you. :-)
