Hey y’all! Thanks for your interest in my work!

I’m Beth Wade.

I specialize in custom newborn and maternity photography around Charlotte, NC.

I was born and raised in the Carolinas. Wake Forest is my alma mater, although my dad raised me as a Tarheel. My pride and joy are named Will and Charlie, and my heart belongs to their incredible dad who I married in 2007. In February 2015 we welcomed our baby girl, Alice Jane, to the world! She brings immeasurable joy to our lives and truly made our family complete. Along with our dog Sugaree and 1 cat our life is a regular circus, all happily residing in Lake Wylie, SC.

As an infant I was adopted by the most incredible parents I could have imagined. Durham is my hometown, but Charlotte has been my home for over 10 years. I have been an artist all my life and painting was a big part of my childhood.  I learned the basics of photography in high school, but my passion for digital art developed while studying at Wake Forest University.

In 2002 I graduated with a Bachelors in Communications and pursued a successful career in advertising sales for AT&T, but it came at the expense of taking time from family and friends. In 2008 my world came crashing down when my father passed away unexpectedly. He was my role model and the biggest supporter of my artwork.

My site features all the things I treasure in my life – from my family and special trips to gorgeous sessions with my clients. As a painter, I love anything that reminds me of watercolor. If I had a day to myself to go shopping (haha, no really…I have 3 KIDS!) I would most likely have Anthropologie, Free People and Juicy Couture take all my money. But instead, thanks to ThredUp and Amazon Prime, I spend most of my days in yoga pants and tank tops.  I love all things vintage, live music and amazing SUNSETS (check out my #lkwsunset obsession on instagram :))!

Photography allows me to capture a single moment and turn it into a piece of art unlike any other medium I have studied.  Babies really do grow.up.so.FAST! I credit my husband for fueling my obsession for newborn and baby photography – when our oldest son was barely 1 week old he said, “he’ll never be this small again” and that was when it began. You forget how TINY they really are!  

Art is my passion, the camera is my brush and capturing the joys of life is like painting on a canvas.

I am excited to be your photographer, and to watch your family grow in years to come!
