Charlotte Special Needs Photographer | Free Mini Sessions for Families

My oldest daughter, Addison, has special needs, and she is the entire reason why I even began on my photography journey (you can read more about my story here).

Because I know that families of children with special needs face unique challenges and additional expenses, I am excited to have joined a group of international photographers who volunteer their professional services to these families.

The group, called Uniquely Abled Photographers, aims to provide periodic, free photo mini sessions for families of children with special needs.  The goal is to have a photographer (or team of photographers) in every state and country to provide periodic free photo sessions for families.

Sharetha Monique Photography is currently the representative for the state of North Carolina.  I have created a private Facebook group for the families of children with special needs in North Carolina.  Every other month, I will be selecting one family from the group to receive a free outdoor mini session*.

(If you know a family who would appreciate the goal of this group, but is not on Facebook, please feel free to send me an email).

Since starting my photography business, I have taken lots of great photos of my daughter (which I’m thankful for), but I always knew that I wanted to cater to other families and children with special needs in some capacity. I'm so thankful for this opportunity and platform to be able to give back to others.

Contact me to schedule your child or family session today.



*In order to allow more families to take advantage of this opportunity, families are limited to one free mini session per year.

Note from Sharetha:

Thank you so much for reading this blog post!  I love featuring my clients’ images here (as well as some personal favorite images), and this will give you a glimpse into what you will receive when you commission me for your Charlotte Maternity, Newborn, Children, and Family Photography.

If you would like to see what an entire gallery looks like, please don’t hesitate to ask.  Some of my favorites are posted here, but all of the images you receive are worthy of being in a frame, an album, or displayed on your walls!

Due to the custom nature of portrait sessions, I take a limited number of clients each month.

Capturing a family’s story and creating beautiful images brings me tremendous joy, and I would be honored to capture yours!
