My name is Barbara Payne and I am a photographer living in the greater Charlotte area with my wonderful husband and three goofy children for the past 9 years. I have always loved taking pictures but my passion for photography started with my own children and has spread across North Carolina as well as major metropolitan cities such as Washington, DC and New York City.
When I was a child, I can remember wondering why we never had family portraits hanging on our walls. We had NO pictures actually, just a few baby pictures in the attic (in the Georgia heat) that did survive but are faded and discolored now. We had plenty of snapshots in shoeboxes over the years, but I always wished for a nice family picture of the five of us. As I’ve gotten older, I love researching my family history and documenting our stories and this is why I choose photography. I want to document special moments for a lifetime of enjoyment.
I specialize in on-location sessions using natural lighting. I love to capture those special moments in your home, a favorite outdoor location, or capturing that special activity that is your family’s passion. My style is clean and simple, capturing joy and personality. I love to focus on faces, eyes, smiles, and emotions.
I love photographing families, babies, and children. However, I am also able to tailor my services to your unique needs. I offer custom packages for local businesses (daycares, private schools, charter schools, company/church directories, etc).
