Hey! What’s UP? Hello.

Hi, 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! I’m a middle-child, married to an amazing man who I affectionately call The Ethiopian. Together, we live in Washington, DC with our cat Shiro (sure-oh) who we obsess over.

BOOK LOVER. CAT LADY. HGTV ADDICT.


I am a certified smile-chaser and a 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 make you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that you are the truest reflection of your self. smile easily and most importantly – have a good time when we’re together. Each and every one of my clients will tell you how hard I work to make sure these things happen.

Your body’s your body, your face is your face

This is my motto for EVERY one of my clients. Once you’re in front of my camera, the best thing I can tell you to do is just to BE.

LOVES


Sequins + glitter (they’re my love language!), cupcakes, Grey’s Anatomy, breakfast for dinner, cats, thunderstorms, meeting new people, singing in the shower, VEEP, board games

NOT A FAN OF


Cucumbers, bugs, tailgaters
