A full service photography studio from consultation to product delivery

How it works

If you want some adorable newborn portraits or breath taking maternity artwork, don't wait to book your session.

I limit the amount of bookings I take per month, to give all of my clients a luxury experience. We also don't know exactly when your little one will come so we ensure a spot when booked in advance!

NicSo Studio LLC is a full service portrait studio located in Charlotte, NC. We specialize in maternity and newborn photography, but also offer cake smashes, milestones, mommy & me, as well as family photography. 


The luxury experience 

My goal for portrait sessions is to provide my clients with a memorable photography experience unlike any they have had before. Maternity and newborn photography is such an important documentation for your life. Above all else it requires an investment of trust in the person who will be working with your precious baby. When my clients come to me, they receive not only artwork as well as amazing customer service. If you hire a professional photographer to capture the most precious times in your life, you deserve a quality product to display beautifully in your home.

I always tell my clients that before their sweet baby comes they don't need to stress about memories. When you schedule a photoshoot with me, we walk them through the entire process together. Including what to wear for the sessions, how you need to prepare for their photoshoot, how you'd like to display their images, which products fit their home style, and so much more. I LISTEN to my clients wants and needs and am here to guide them the entire way! This is how we make your dream session come to life. 

Over the years, I have learned which products my clients love and what kind of service they expect, and I strive to reach beyond those expectations. When you book a session with NicSo Studio you can relax and enjoy these moments that will quickly go by. Grab a snack from our snack area, relax on our sofa listening to jazz music and remember this is your time to have a stress free session all while knowing that you will receive gorgeous art for your home in the end.

Your photography experience does not have to end with an online gallery downloaded onto your phone. Prepare to be "wowed" at all of the timeless ways that you can display your digital images. From ready-to-hang, gorgeous acrylic prints to customized albums that will fit perfectly in any placement, I will assist your entire photography experience and make your shoot beyond stress free and fun!

What to expect

Step 1. Consultation

Prior to booking you will have a consultation done via phone to discuss how I can make your session perfect. We will discuss my booking process and how you want to display your images.

Once you have paid your session fee and signed your contract I will officially put you in my books! At this point we will schedule an in person design consultation so that I can make sure your session is perfect!

If booking a newborn session you will let me know when baby arrives so we can pick a session date.

The day is finally here! You now get to enjoy a stress free day while we create magic in the studio. If you have booked a maternity session prepare to be pampered with professional hair and makeup and faux champagne. 

Since we have discussed what you'd like out of your session I will have a everything will be prepared for you once you arrive.

Most sessions last 1 hour with the exception of a newborn session which will last 2-4 hours. At the end of your session we will pick a date for your photo reveal.
