I'm a maternity + newborn photographer with 13 years under my belt. I split my time between Charlotte and Orlando with my husband, Jack, and cocker spaniel, Rocky! I'm slightly sarcastic and overly organized (total enneagram 6). I'm also obsessed with Parks and Recreation and may or may not have incorporated April's wedding vows into our destination wedding ceremony. I love capturing families all over the world. I'm always planning my next worldly adventure, most of the time with amazing clients!
Photographs have become a huge part of my life story personally, and I treat every session as if I were the one receiving the memories. I cannot wait to be on this journey with you and start your next grand adventure!
If I learned one thing from my life journey, it's that photos are so important for you to be able to look back on. Especially those huge milestones in your life. I used to go through my parents photo albums from when I was a kid and I was always disappointed in the lack of memories captured. When my dad became diagnosed with end-stage cancer, I made it my goal to capture as many memories as possible, and every milestone that came in life.
When choosing a Charlotte photographer for your motherhood sessions, you need someone who will be able to make you feel comfortable in your own skin, while capturing the love you have for your family. You want to be smiling, laughing, and relaxed throughout the entire process. You want to trust them 100%, and to be friends. So, if you're looking for a fun photographer with a photography style you'll love forever, hello. You've come to the right website.
Don't worry - I guide every couple and family through their portrait session, I will be the super organized aunt who has a checklist of your must-have photos and the best bad dad jokes in her back pocket. The fun will be non-stop throughout your experience - as it should be.
It feels way longer, but I've been a Charlotte Maternity and Newborn Photographer for over 13 years! Watching families grow over the years and capturing their journey brings so much joy to my heart. I've also had the privilege of working side by side with my husband over the past 6 years to capture my clients' memories! He is the goofball making all the kids laugh (and the adults too). I love every single second of being a Charlotte Maternity and Newborn photographer and couldn't ask for a better career.
I am extremely blown away by the beautiful photography that captured the magic of my pregnancy and the new addition to our family in my daughter’s newborn shoot. The entire experience of working with Haleigh was amazing, and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She’s fun, the ultimate hype woman and made the process as stress free as possible, but also extremely professional and truly talented. The pictures are gorgeous! She was always punctual, patient, kind, flexible, provided amazing wardrobe options and always made sure that we captured everything I had envisioned. Her hubby worked with us at the newborn shoot and was amazing with getting smiles from my toddler who was not so sure about it at first. I’m so grateful to have worked with such a great team to capture the magic of these family milestones!
Haleigh and Jack are sensational! Haleigh has followed me through the journey from pregnancy to one year and will for many more years to come. I trust her to capture fleeting moments and she does, flawlessly. It takes a special person to work with children, let alone babies and she has the magic touch. I HIGHLY recommend Haleigh to everyone that I know. I am so thankful to both she and Jack for making our memories last a lifetime.
Additionally, I’ve been hearing about how amazing Jack is since our most recent session from my daughter's father. "Did you see everything he was trying to do to make her smile?!”. We also didn’t realize that in between all of his antics, he was also taking behind the scenes content. These two are a dynamic duo and I’ve been on cloud 9 since my session.
I’ve known Haleigh and Jack as friends for many years so I wasn’t expecting anything less than the best but they went above and beyond to accommodate a very last minute session request. My husband and I wanted to announce our pregnancy through a holiday card but knew we needed to act fast. I had admired Haleigh’s work the last couple years and realized she would be the perfect person to help with this special/secret project. Despite being completely booked for the holidays, she set up a quick 30 minute session, guided my husband and I efficiently and effectively through the session (models we are not!) and delivered a stunning variety of images to us within DAYS! She’s the best of the best (as a photographer AND person) and we’d recommend her over and over again!!!
I loved working with Haleigh! I decided to have a "Fresh 48" session for my newborn just a few days before he was born! She was quick to answer and flexible to accommodate our session with a short notice! During the session day, at the hospital, she arrived on time and was very understanding of our little delay - baby was not ready when she arrived. Also, considering the COVID situation, she took all precautions to make sure we had a safe photo session! The pictures came out perfect - she did a fantastic job in capturing all the happiness and love we were feeling with our newborn finally with us! Thank you, Haleigh!!!
Haleigh was such a joy to work with! Being 28 weeks pregnant you tend to feel like a beluga whale, and she made me feel comfortable and beautiful behind the lens! My crazy two year old was also involved in the shoot..... she was so patient with him! I couldn’t be happier with the results of the photos! How do you choose favorites when they are ALL your favorite?! We plan on using Haleigh when our new babe arrives this summer for his fresh 48 session! Highly recommend Haleigh for all your photo needs!

Haleigh is an amazing photographer and we had so much fun on our maternity shoot with her! She is a great communicator, and she made my husband and I feel totally comfortable the entire time. She is great at clearly directing you into positions that feel natural and explaining everything that she’s doing. She’s also extremely responsive and professional outside of the photoshoot. The photos she took turned out beautifully, and we received them super quickly! We are so thankful to her for capturing this time in our lives! 10/10 would recommend Haleigh to anyone looking for a stress-free photoshoot with a photographer who really knows how to make you feel and look great!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! We have been using Haleigh as our photographer for over two years and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her! She did both of my daughter’s “first bday/cake smash” photoshoots as well as my second daughter’s new born photos, and she exceeded my expectations each time! She is SO PATIENT with the babies and kids. She was more than willing to help any vision we had come to life. (She even came early and helped me decorate for one of the sessions because I don’t have a good eye for that). She is amazing and I’m so fortunate to have found her!
We loved our photo session with Haleigh Nicole Photography! She was incredibly professional, friendly, and worked so hard to make everything great for our portraits. She was able to get our kids interested in smiling and "working" with the camera. The portraits are a huge treasure to our family! Haleigh also reaches out to the community and is capable of many different types of photography. If you're looking for any photo needs, go with Haleigh!
We had the pleasure of having Haleigh (and Jack) photograph a very special moment for us, as we found out the gender of our baby! Prior to the photo shoot, Haleigh was incredible with communication, very open & positive. She was down for anything! She did an amazing job wrangling some family members, both human and furry! She was incredible to work with! And words cannot even begin to describe how AMAZING her work is! The pictures she captured from that moment were breathtaking. She captured so much love and happiness into a picture and I stare at them all the time! Since then, she has captured our newborn session and family over the holidays! I’m so thankful we had the chance to work with her and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!
Haleigh & Jack are some of the sweetest souls I’ve ever worked with! They are extremely talented, pay great attention to detail, are professional, and they care so much about their clients. My husband & I both feel that those things are hard to find in businesses these days so we treasure them whenever we can find them. I would recommend Haleigh & Jack to literally anyone and everyone who wants stunning photos and a wonderful and positive experience to go with them.

Before working with Haleigh, I’d never had professional pictures taken. Needless to say, I was slightly apprehensive and I didn’t know what to expect. Haleigh made me feel at ease, and made it a very fun experience! She has photographed our twin boys and our entire family. She is part baby whisperer and part photographer. I can’t imagine working with anyone else! You should know that Haleigh's clients are diverse, unique and looking for a lighthearted experience... which she 100% delivers on!
My husband & I first hired Haleigh for our baby shower & she was absolutely fantastic! She captured every detail, was thorough, arrived early, very professional, and had a quick turnaround time for editing our photos (not to mention, she has the sweetest personality!) We loved her photography so much, we have now used her as our family photographer for the past two years (birthdays, baptism, holiday sessions, and so much more). She is so patient with us and she makes us feel comfortable/natural the entire time! We have the most *amazing* photos from the happiest days of our lives! Haleigh is a wonderful & talented photographer!
