IT’S SO NICE TO MEET YOU!

I’m Carletta (eh, not ee) and I’m so glad that you found your way here! The first thing you should know is that I absolutely love what I do! For as long as I can really remember, I’ve been the person behind a camera and eventually that turned into what you see now.

I live and love in Washington, DC with my husband (affectionately known as The Ethiopian) and our cat Shiro (sure-oh) who we obsess over (a lot!). I am very much a Sagittarius and my enneagram is 2 (The Helper). I will almost never say no to Mexican food or pizza and I love a vodka Gimlet.

BOOK LOVER. CAT LADY. HGTV ADDICT.

I am a smile-chaser and a die-hard lover of love. I love a posed moment but I think the candid ones are just as important and I never stop working to show you that. My goal is always to have a good time. I want our time together to feel comfortable and easy.

I LOVE PEOPLE!

No, really – I LOVE people and I promise you will feel exactly what that means within 10 minutes of meeting me.

My goal is to create photos that are the truest reflection of your “you-ness”. I want you to smile easily and most importantly – have a good timer.

YOUR BODY IS YOUR BODY, YOUR FACE IS YOUR FACE

This is my motto for EVERY one of my clients. We spend a lot of time worrying about the things that in the moment can not be changed so the best thing I can tell you to do is to simply show up to your session and just BE who you are on that day and at that time.

When we’re together – we’re not focusing on the things that you don’t like but the things that make you feel good. I know, I know – you don’t like to have your photo taken – but that’s what I’m there for, so you don’t have to worry about it.
