Fun in the Garden

I had a lovely time photographing this sweet three-year old boy and his mom in the garden. He was so playful and sweet. I loved all his different expressions! His grandma had bid on and won a portrait session at the Charlotte, NC American Heart Association’s gala fundraiser – the 2019 Heart Ball. So we had a lot of fun in this South Park, Charlotte area garden, and grandma gets to have a keepsake portrait from her auction win! A win-win all around. Nanine Hartzenbusch Photography supports area non-profits in the Charlotte, NC and the Upstate, SC area by donating a portrait session and a print to silent auction fundraisers. And here are my favorite images from our session in the garden!

Congratulations Graduate!

I’m so glad I got to spend time with this beautiful senior in the garden, capturing her smile and excitement before she heads to college! We had a lot of fun finding flowering shrubs, overhanging branches and colorful foliage in this beautiful spring garden to complement her senior portraits. Her mom and I have known each other ever since we moved to Charlotte, over a decade ago, so I was pleased to be able to work with them to produce a keepsake senior portrait. Our sweet friend will be heading to Navy to join her brother, finishing up his second year. Graduation is next week! Best wishes in your next chapter!

Fun Senior Garden Portraits

I had a great time photographing this beautiful Senior student heading to college. We arranged portraits in a gorgeous South Park garden, with lots of possibilities for backgrounds. She had several different outfits, to show her versatility and sense of fun. Now, I’ve designed her senior announcements; graduation is almost here! Very exciting times for her and for her family. Thanks for a fun day in the garden!
