As her popularity as a photographer continued to rise, I sought the opportunity to get a session for my infant son. I was super excited when I saw the openings for Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions. My little man has my heart and I was so excited for Michelle to work her magic. I love her use of natural light for studio work as well as her selection of natural and/or rustic locations outside of the studio. Photographs are a precious opportunity to capture each phase of my son’s life which we know will pass by all too quickly. Michelle provides the most precious gift by going beyond cold studio pictures and truly capturing my son’s natural mannerisms and personality. People just keep telling me how great the pictures are by praising the photographer. Photographing infants is not easy and Michelle is such a natural. Many people like to separate their personal and work lives but I think Michelle is successful because of that personal side. She and her family warmly welcome patrons into their home for sessions. Michelle takes pride in keeping your child comfortable and, as a mommy herself, she knows many tricks of the trade. It is very comforting as a mom to know another mom is handling and photographing your child. If you are on the fence, stop thinking and do it! The combination of Michelle’s skills as a photographer and her interpersonal skills shine through to create gorgeous pictures.

Michelle is an amazing artist and photographer! Her work is outstanding! She is the greatest with kids! She is so patient and takes her time with capturing your memories!! I have people all the time say that “Sweet Charlotte Photography takes awesome pictures” when I post them on Facebook.  Her prices are so reasonable as well. You don’t have to pick and choose which pictures you want like most of your typical studios, you get a CD. I would recommend Michelle to take your life changing experiences ex: birth of a child, newborn, milestones of your children growing, wedding and family pictures!

Michelle is an amazing photographer and artist! Her vast knowledge of other art mediums and concepts really shine through in her photography work. She’s amazingly patient with small children and will do just about anything to get them to smile. I’m constantly getting compliments on the photos we’ve had taken with Sweet Charlotte Photography. I highly recommend hiring her to capture all your life’s most precious moments. A memory fades over time; a picture lasts a lifetime. Don’t you want it to be a great one?

When I became pregnant with my son I wanted to have maternity pictures taken to capture that time of my life. A friend referred me to Michelle Crawford as a newer photographer in the area who took awesome pictures.  As I looked through her photographs on her Facebook, I could not believe she was a “newer” photographer — her work was amazing!  I knew right away I had to use her as my photographer! Michelle was so easy to work with and made me feel very comfortable.  When I received my photos I was more than blown away with the results of our photo shoot and I knew I would be using her again. Michelle has since taken newborn, birthday, family, and boudoir photos for me. I will not go to any one else because I know Michelle will do whatever it takes to get the most amazing shots possible. She is amazing with kids and is so patient.  I am and always will be a loyal customer to Sweet Charlotte Photography.

Michelle has ben amazing to work with! I have always admired her work! She is an amazing photographer and an amazing person! Always so willing to work with us, and very patient and understanding! My son was very shy the first time she did pictures for us, and by the time we were done he didn’t want to leave. He was so comfortable and ended up sharing ice cream with her kids! We have had four sessions, 3 year- old/maternity, newborn, family and then recently four generation photos. I have been beyond happy with all of the photos she has captured for our family. I would highly recommend Sweet Charlotte photography! We already have a summer session scheduled!

I’ve known Michelle since high school, and we worked together for the first time for newborn pictures of my daughter, Kylie. The pictures she captured of my first baby were breathtaking. She got every unique, small detail that new moms absolutely love. I’ve had Kylie’s pictures taken with Michelle every holiday since. Never disappointed with how they turn out. Even the terrible twos turned out great! Michelle is flexible, creative, wonderful with children, and affordable. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone wishing to capture all of life’s precious memories.

I first used Michelle’s services for the 2013 Easter mini session.  I booked a slot after seeing the adorable Valentine kissing booth pictures she posted of her own kids on Facebook.  I was so pleased with the final product of our Easter pictures that we have had Michelle capture all of our holiday and milestone events since.  Two years later, she’s still exceeding our photography needs.  I appreciate her professionalism, patience and flexibility.  Michelle always goes above and beyond to give us the personal touch that make our photos special.  I recommend her to anyone who is in search of a photographer, especially those with children.  She’s definitely best kept secret in Cumberland!

Michelle’s work is amazing! She works tirelessly to capture the perfect image! She manages to get the best smile from my cranky 3 year old and a simply smile from my tough as nails husband! She is our whole family’s photographer and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I cherish the memories that Michelle has captured for us and I know I will for years to come!
