Creative Senior Photography

Emma LoPinto

Another fantastic shoot, the synergy began with Emma from the moment we started capturing each moment together. Working collectively allowed me to bring the very best out of Emma, using a fun approach of direction and mentoring with a passion and excitement throughout the session and allowed me to nurture the very best of Emma. The charm and edginess of these photographs express themselves in rhythm.

About My Photography

My photography captures a moment in time - a split-second that remains locked in time often abstracted and completely random. It is in these moments I see potential element, shape, abstraction, and life in colour, inspiration before the moment fades to grey into the past disappearing forever.

My creative portrait photography services provide a beautiful and unique perspective of people with passion and imagination that will have your portfolio catching the eye of family, friends and the world. Take a look around at my work, I promise you'll find yourself in wonder of the possibilities for you.

Baby, Toddler, High School Senior, College Grade, Model, Actor, Engagement, Bridal, Wedding, your Family Photography.

The simple act of smiling can communicate warmth, welcome, and love and pave the way to unique and beautiful experiences and it is for these moments we live. I think the most beautiful portraits are taken in a fun relaxed atmosphere when you forget where you are and that you are even being photographed.

Your portrait session will be fun, unique and completely customized to your vision. We work together on your session from start to end!

Love Love Love !!!!!!

To be honest I really didn’t think you could capture something as spectacular as Ryleigh’s shoot. Ryleigh looks older and more theatrical. I love Ryleigh’s red lipstick but that is something Emma would never wear. I just knew when I saw Ryleigh’s pictures you had to take Emma’s picture. We wanted the same look but w/the differences in the girls I wasn’t sure it would work. You totally blew me away. That picture of Emma is just amazing. You went beyond my expectations and well I am sure it is not hard to believe, Love Love Love it!!!!!!

Magical Experience!
{It was amazing, to say the least. Darren was so patient and kind. It was a 90-degree day but he never complained! Darren has an eye for unique angles and knows every “cool spot” around the Charlotte area and beyond. He captured my daughter Maddie to a T! I will recommend him to anyone!

Jennifer McConachy
An Eye for Unique Angles!
{Darren Bowen went above and beyond our expectations for our daughter’s Senior pictures. The perfect balance of professionalism and fun and friendly. Darren was so professional and had brilliant ideas but also graciously accommodated any that we or our daughter had.

Regan Haggerty
Professional and Brilliant!
{Thank you seems so small and just not enough for him to truly understand my level of appreciation. Darren graciously volunteered to be the photographer at a benefit for Mackenzie Lynn Barron, a 3-year-old diagnosed with DIPG incurable, non-treatable brain cancer. Darren is the most kind-hearted, generous man. His level of professionalism is beyond measure and he was able to capture the day for us with little direction from me.

Esther Alcamo
Unique, Creative Style and Artistic Vision!
{Darren did a photoshoot for me and the experience was outstanding. Prior to the shoot, he asked what I was looking to get from the photos and where I would be using them. In my case, they were for social media profiles. He thought of some great locations, took the pictures, and delivered the finals promptly. I can’t say enough about his professionalism and creativity. But all of that shines through in his finished product and his work speaks for itself.
