A year ago, when I first moved to Charlotte, I did some research on local mommy bloggers (after all, their audience is my target market!) and came across Emily Fee, Charlotte’s Motherhood Blogger. She’s real, honest, and FUNNY. She’s refreshingly open about her kids, her career, and her life. Oh, and did I mention that she’s gorgeous and has a killer fashion sense? I love following her on IG because she makes me laugh on the daily with her hilarious mom/wife/girl boss stories.
It was while following one of these hilarious stories that I saw that she was on the hunt for a photographer. She needed to take some pics of a few outfits for a fashion collaboration with Brickyard Buffalo and she was “sick of taking selfies”. (Her words, not mine! ?) Doing fashion/product photoshoots is not usually my jam, but motherhood photography IS my jam, so of course I wanted to help out Charlotte’s Motherhood Blogger!
We met up at Camp North End, which is this very cool space in downtown Charlotte with an industrial warehouse vibe. Emily brought her two adorable kids, Colette and Wesley, with her to the shoot. I didn’t know it at the time, but her husband had been traveling for over a week for work. She never mentioned it, never asked to reschedule when things were less hectic. She just showed up EARLY, looking flawless and cool as a cucumber!
What I loved so much about this shoot is that it was real life. A mom, working to look stunning for a fashion collaboration photoshoot, while chasing after one kid with the other clutching on to her leg. A businesswoman, trying to talk to me about our respective businesses while simultaneously getting Elmo up on her phone and redirecting her kids to someplace not directly in my shot. ?It was such a fun session and I can’t wait to collaborate with her again! If you are interested in fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle and want to follow a funny, sassy, and down-to-earth mom, wife, and entrepreneur, Emily Fee is your gal!!
Here are some of my favorite shots from our session — the final images… and some real-to-life outtakes. ❤️
