Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
— Aaron Siskind

Lisa Yvette: who, what, when, where and why...

I'm a mom of 2 adult daughters and have worked in the technology field for over 20 years. I currently work as a Charlotte NC photographer specializing in newborn and maternity portraits. It is a great honor and pure joy for me to capture glowing, pregnant moms and fresh new bundles of life. I also photograph babies at the 6 month and 1 year milestone, families, graduating seniors, and a few weddings each year. My studio stocks a variety of props, clothing, hats, and headbands for newborns and sitters, as well as maternity gowns and posing fabrics for expecting moms. 

My love of photography was inspired as a child by my father who documented my life growing up with videos and photos. He taught me the importance of preserving our family's memories through imagery. It's one thing to hear stories about family members who have passed on, but having photographs to 'see' them in print gives me connection and a real sense of who I am and who I come from. Now that I am capturing my own images, I take comfort knowing that I am maintaining our family's legacy and that our photos and stories will be passed down through the generations. I have so many albums and boxes full of heartfelt, nostalgic memories of myself, my family and friends collected over the years. Each photo has its own story and conjures different emotions and thoughts. I feel blessed to have these prints to look back on from time to time, especially in the digital photo world we live in today.   

In 2013, I decided to pursue my love of photography professionally so that I may help families capture and preserve their stories. I'm very passionate about building trust and long lasting relationships with my clients so they may allow me to document their lives over time. It is my goal to provide each of you with a unique, customized portrait experience and beautifully printed portraits to cherish for generations to come.


Besides photography, here are a few fun facts that get me talking:

-Like all Sagittarians, my favorite pastime is travel. 

-What's on my DVR: This is Us, Queen Sugar, Westworld, Stranger Things, Insecure, Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, and a few other 'guilty pleasure' series

-I enjoy cooking new tasty dishes and trying new restaurants

-Music from the late 80's through the 90's will forever be in my playlist 

-I'm a tea gal...peppermint, peach, and chamomile are my faves
