Gorgeous big sisters ~ brother and sister twins~ beautiful family pictures~ Charlotte, NC

One of the perks of running a very small family photography business is that I get to see my families as they grow!  We were super excited to hear the Yancey’s were expecting twins!  They decided to go for baby #3 and ended up with #3 and #4!!!!  Their beautiful daughters (who we also got to photograph when they were babies) were so loving with their new brother and sisters.  Congratulations to you all!

Fall Family Mini Photography Sessions with Carrie Scruggs Photography

If you follow me on facebook (hint hint) you might have seen that I was tossing around the idea of offering 5 spots for mini sessions this fall.  Well, I haven’t had a chance to post the special yet and already I’m down to just 3 spots remaining.


Email me for more information or if you would like to go ahead and book your date carrie@cesphotography.com



Susan’s spring family photo session ~Lake Wylie family photographer~

Oh my goodness I can not believe I forgot to post this beautiful family photo session from the spring.  I’m telling you – between posting a quick image or two to Facebook I often forget to blog the session (ok – honesty here….blogging is not my favorite thing to do either!).  Such a stunning group of kids and man were they so polite and sweet!!!!!!!!!!!  Loved spending the morning with this beautiful crew!

I am going to actually show you some of the pages out of their custom designed photo album (I do not put my logo on the actual pages – just for web viewing) and they chose a gorgeous gray linen fabric for the cover:

This first page we made into a panoramic image so that it look up both page 1 and page 2

Summer fun with Jenna’s family ~Waxhaw NC family photographer!

Summer can be a tricky time for family pictures but if you are willing to get up early – it can be beautiful and not too terribly HOT!  I am just in love with this beautiful family photo session we did here in Waxhaw this summer!  Such a beautiful family and a cute cute cute little guy!



Holy Hannah….Mrs K Rocks! ~ Waxhaw Family Photographer

Missing our wonderful teacher as we start another school year this morning.  We are so lucky to have had Mrs. K for Sammy’s 4th grade teacher last year.  It is simply amazing when you are gifted with teachers that truly love their job and love the kids.  What a world of difference it makes in your child’s and your life!  We were lucky to have two wonderful teachers last year (well 4 actually if you count our wonderful preschool teachers!) and we are hopeful that this year will prove the same (though they have big shoes to fill!).  Mrs. K – you are so wonderful and we miss you so much.  I hope you have a wonderful year at your new school (she is now teaching at Stallings Elementary if anyone out there is lucky enough to get her) and we will hold out hope that you might come back to us and teach Owen or Drew in the future!

Sammy just loved your good luck email  you sent him this morning.  You really  know how to make a kid feel special!  Geez, now I’m starting to tear up over here!  Sniff sniff…. we miss you!

Holy Hannah….you are so blazing cute!

Woodward & Woodward Corporate headshots uptown Charlotte, NC

One of the things I love best about being a photographer is meeting interesting and new people.  I just loved spending the morning with this husband and wife lawyer team in uptown Charlotte.  They needed a variety of images for their new website so we did some more formal color headshots along with a little more relaxed black and white outdoor headshots.  I am often asked for headshots against a white background so that their webdesign team can “cut them out” and layer their image into the website background/design so we did that too :-)
