Welcome! We like to share specials and portrait sneak peeks from our sessions in Statesville, Lake Norman, and the surrounding areas. We'll also post special announcements here before we post them anywhere else!
One of the most rewarding parts of being a small business owner is the ability to customize the experience for each client.
Nieka's mom contacted me earlier this year so that we could discuss her youngest daughter's upcoming graduation from UNCC. She wanted to celebrate this milestone with professional portraits and it was quite humbling to know that of all the photographers they could choose, that they selected me.
After meeting at the Sheri Allison Photography studio in Downtown Statesville, we decided on products that fit not only their budget, but also ensured they would have the products they needed to document such an important time in their lives. Naturally, we had to make sure we had enough shareable prints for family, plus some nice prints for mom's house! Rather than just handing over a price list and clicking the calculator, we chatted at length and came up with a plan that mom was thrilled with.
I did all the planning with Nieka's mom and so I didn't actually meet Nieka until her session. We connected immediately and we had a fantastic time! She was a natural model and seemed so comfortable in front of the camera - even though she said she was nervous!
We just love the Historic Sharpe House and have worked there extensively over the last few years. We've hosted baby showers, we've photographed weddings, bridal portraits, anniversary celebrations, and a garden party there. We've had our Santa Mini Sessions there two years in a row, and we even celebrated our very own 25th anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony this past October. To say that we're familiar with the property and supportive of its growth as an event venue would be an understatement.
Under the direction of Keith Rhyne, the house has had new life breathed into it. It has become so much more than just a space to hold an event; it is a full service venue with white glove service that I would venture to say is unmatched in our area. Services offered can include event planning, decorating, catering, and more!
A bride who wishes to marry the love of her life at Sharpe House would not find more attention to detail and catering to her needs in any other wedding venue in North Carolina.
It is with great pride that we announce Sharpe House Through the Seasons : Micro Mini Fine Art Series Portrait Sessions. Periodically throughout the year, Keith will design a set for us to use that features a different part of the property, and we will host mini sessions for 1-2 days. Each session will include 2-3 poses with that one specific area of the house. Each session will come with an 8x10 Fine Art Folio Print; a luxurious art piece printed on triple-thick paper. They are ready to display and require no additional mat or framing.
What a wonderful way to honor a historic landmark while creating heirloom portraits to add to your family's legacy. SH THROUGH THE SEASONS

I had the honor of photographing K and J's wedding almost two years ago, and they have become great friends. Their reception at the Peninsula Club at beautiful Lake Norman, NC is still one of our favorites and produced some gorgeous images!
But as it happens, the wedding is over, the dress is packed away, and the newlyweds have settled into life together. This Spring they welcomed their beautiful baby boy into their family. Baby Liam is first grandchild on either side; something tells me he won't lack for cuddles!
His mommy and daddy brought him to our studio, located in Historic Downtown Statesville, for his newborn photo session. We always try to incorporate something of meaning into the photographs, and for this family, airplanes was definitely it! Liam's grandpa is a pilot, his daddy loves pilot/flying simulation games, and after J mentioned that they would bring K's aviator glasses, the idea was born!
I showed my husband some images of what I wanted for the airplane, and in no time, he had created this gorgeous airplane prop. This series is one of my all time favorites to date. From the airplane, to the baby on the guitar, to mom and dad's shining adoration, to the little puppy, this gallery comes together to create timeless images for this growing family.
