I'm a Georgia native turned North Carolinian after college (GO DAWGS!) We love Charlotte and have called Huntersville home for 5 years now. When I'm not busy being a mom to our sweet girl and fluffy golden-doodle, you can find me outside tinkering in the garden, running, sitting on the porch swing (wine in hand of course) or catching up with friends. One of my greatest joys is seeing the sweet God-ordained moments of life between loved ones from behind the lens. I've spent the last few years photographing newborns, families, expectant mothers and one year old celebrations, all in beautiful natural light. I love getting to see day old babies grow into beautiful children right before my eyes! As a trained photojournalist, I aim to capture these moments of life that can be treasured forever. As a mom, I know the importance of getting good images (that you're actually in) because time flies. Let's connect and make this a reality for your family!
My goal is to create an experience that allows you to truly enjoy our time working together! To help with that, I offer a curated client wardrobe for your family in muted neutral tones such as ivory, lace, pink, gray and white. This saves you time and money, as well as helps us achieve the light and airy look I love to deliver. To view my current wardrobe, head over to @hollygernattphotography on instagram and click on the wardrobe highlight icon.
Fresh 48's, Maternity, Milestone and Family sessions are all an hour long and can either take place in my Huntersville, NC studio or at an outdoor location nearby. My newborn sessions blend studio + lifestyle together, offering the option to include the whole family on the front end. These are generally about 2-3 hours long and are offered on weekday afternoons. I also offer Baby Bundles to make capturing your littles first year a breeze!
To reserve your date, I require a $100 non-refundable deposit along with a signed contract (which I will email over once I know that we're a good fit). Within two weeks of our session, I will email a link to your image gallery. From there, you are able to order prints and products through the integrated shop or do it through another high quality lab of your choice on your own.
As a stay at home mom first and foremost, I know how crazy our schedules can get, as well as how demanding littles can be. Do yourself a favor and capture these fleeting seasons, you won't regret it!
