A portrait is forever- it’s your legacy to leave behind. Let’s meet in our office, chat over what you’re looking for and how our process works from start to finish! We will decide on the look of your location: inside our studio space, on our property, in your home or on location. In addition, we will talk about what you plan on doing with your images long term, what to wear and more to set up your session!
Portrait sessions are booked with your artisan fee and a signed agreement to book your time. North Carolina sessions are subject to sales tax. Yay! Now we get your time & date on our calendar!
If your session is in our studio space, you may select from our studio wardrobe of robes, rompers, dresses and various fabrics in addition to bringing one or two outfits of your own that we have discussed in advance.
Wardrobe & Styling
If you have booked hair & makeup with your session, come to our studio where you will be pampered and be made over by Charlotte’s best hair & makeup team. We will chat about the aesthetic for your shoot and how your hair & makeup will best correlate.
Hair & Makeup
It’s time! I will guide you in posing so that your most authentic and comfortable self comes through in your images. Our clients specifically come to us for this moment, where you see and feel how beautiful you truly are, both inside and out.
Fall in love with your images all at once for the first time in person. We will guide you through our available heirlooms, framed and matted prints, albums, canvases and more; which all include digital copies of your images. Your portraits are a legacy left behind for generations yet to come.
The Reveal & Design Consult
The last step in our time together, schedule a time to pick up your gorgeous handmade heirlooms and see your images in a tangible way.
We've all been there, it's months or years after you received your digital images and they still aren't displayed in your home. You're overwhelmed and preserving your family's memories has become a time consuming task. What if you went home with your family's history in your hands? What if you didn't have to make those choices alone and within one meeting, all of your family's memories were preserved in a tangible way that will be passed down through the years?
With us, you'll never go home empty handed.
"My experience with Holeigh V Photography was such an enjoyable experience. She greeted me so warmly and her in-home studio was gorgeous and relaxing. While my makeup was being done she had snacks and water in case I needed a boost. Holeigh provided me with a beautiful arrangement of garments that I could choose from to wear in the photos, if I desired. She was so patient with me and my 1 year old daughter during the “mommy and me” session. She definitely has a way with kids! Holeigh spoiled and pampered me (something I rarely get to experience) which was not only fun but made me feel feminine and gorgeous. The photos she captured expressed my daughter's bubbly personality and will be perfect to look back on for years to come!"

"Absolutely the best photographer!! Their attention to detail is top notch and will give you piece of mind on your wedding day and during family portraits that no special moments will go undocumented. Holeigh & Noah's photography style is romantic, airy and beautiful and will always be classic. Holeigh and Noah together make a wonderful team with their fun and artistic personalities. Photography perfection at its finest! Everyone will be talking about how gorgeous your pictures are!!"
"We enjoy working with Holeigh and Noah so much, they make us feel so comfortable and natural. From bridals, our wedding, maternity and now newborn, we have loved every single photo they have taken of us over the years. The quality of the heirlooms are amazing and we are so amazed every time!”

"I booked Holeigh for my boudoir shoot and I never regretted my decision. I was so in love with Holeigh's style and professional persona that I knew I wanted to use her for my boudoir session. Boudoir shoots are not something you think about doing everyday and it definitely came with a lot of nerves, but Holeigh was so calming and made me feel so comfortable. Her style is so classic and she knew exactly how to pose me so I wasn't aimlessly trying to figure out what looked right. When the images came back, I had such a difficult time choosing my images but loved having my gallery to reference and show my husband. Needless to say, if you are thinking about boudoir as a gift to your husband, Holeigh is definitely the way to go!"
"I am so honored to have worked with Holeigh for multiple life events. From getting engaged, to bridal portraits, bridal boudoir, wedding, and now maternity, I could not ask for a better photographer and friend to work with through these special times! It’s easy to get caught up in the moment of being on camera or maybe feeling nervous not knowing how you look. Holeigh has a way of creating her vision and making you feel comfortable and confident, as she did with me during my maternity session. The little coaching tips and laughter we shared throughout our time together gave me some of the best memories and breathtaking images to cherish forever! ”
"Holeigh and Noah were such a joy to work with for my maternity session. They made the experience very special. The images captured are absolutely beautiful and I will forever treasure these memories ”
