A Rave for Kinchen Martial Arts and for Camille

This is my friend Camille. She is an eight year-old taekwondo student at Kinchen Martial Arts in Cornelius. Her parents wanted to find an extra-curricular activity for her that would challenge Camille to focus, improve her physical fitness, and bolster her self-esteem. Their favorite photographer reccommend that they meet Master Cliff (whom her own family trains with) and see if lessons with him would be a good fIt for their little girl. It turns out that this delightful (and strong willed!) young lady, who happens to have Down syndrome, absolutely loves Tae Kwon Do and her practice sessions with Master Cliff. In just four months her self-control is noticeably improved and and as you can see she is clearly quite proud of herself. It was a pleasure to get to observe the two of them during her lesson. I am so impressed with my little friend. I can not wait to see what she will accomplish next! Love you Millie!!!

Best Friends Photoshoot - Huntersville NC Photographer for Children

These four little monkeys have been best buddies for just about as long as they can remember..


I absolutely love these sweet babies and the friendship that they share with each other.  I can not believe how fast they are growing.  Here are a few candids we snapped the other day during a playdate.  :)












Set Photographer - Charlotte and the Southeast Region

This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to be a set photographer for a new short film entitled "Remnant of Hope"  I am so honored to have been a part of the making of such a special story. My heart is full and I am overjoyed to have met so many wonderful people. "Remnant of Hope" is the creation from the mind and heart of Ricky Teal. Directed by Andrew Huggins who is quickly become very popular due to his amazing talents. Remnant of Hope stars the one and only Karen Abrecrombie best know for her roll in War Room.  This short film is about the treatment of individuals with special needs within the church and about love and acceptance. I had the most amazing time capturing so many heartwarming moments and am so excited to share. You can find a quite a few more images from the day in my Remnant of hope folder on the SnookySmiles Photography Facebook Page.
Please feel free to share, tag, pin and even use images for your profile pictures!!! If you would credit Snookysmiles Photography in your post I would be very grateful. Thanks so much!
