Motherhood Legacy Project


Being a mom is the best, hardest, most interesting, most fun, and most maddening thing I've ever done. I have three wonderful boys and I always want to remember those beautiful moments of laughter and joy we’ve had together. I am lucky enough to have had some amazing portraits with my family over the years and they become more and more special as we grow older.

I think every woman deserves to have a glamorous portrait with her loving children where they all look at their best. That’s why I decided to launch a very special project dedicated to all moms. I will be photographing 30 moms with their children capturing and celebrating the bond they have together.  You might become one of them.

You will also get portraits of you alone, the kids alone and all other combinations you would like. I want to help you see what those who love you see when they look at you.  I want you to have photographs that are a permanent reminder of just how gorgeous you are right now. Read the conditions below to apply for participation.




Be sure you are not the mom who leaves only a link to an online gallery or an obsolete hard drive behind

for your children when you are no longer here. Let them find BEAUTIFULLY PRINTED PHOTOGRAPHS that they will treasure and pass along to their children and their children’s children?

call for entries

T e call for participants is open. Whether you are a mom of little girls or boys, teenage or adults you can enjoy a day just for you together,.
You will be prepared ahead of time with ideas for what to wear, suggestions for facials, haircuts and manicure.  You will also have access to my luxury studio wardrobe with more than 60 dresses. My professional make-up artist will get you ready to star. While you are getting pampered you can enjoy a glass of champagne and get tips to take home regarding hair and makeup.  

After some weeks you will be shown the best images from the shoot and can purchase what you love. As a gift with purchase you get one extra PRINT PHOTOGRAPHY worth 295 Euro.

Each mom will be featured on social media at the end of the project with their before & after transformation and a short story about them. My aim is to show the love between moms and children and giving women an experience to remember with her children. Ultimately I want to empower every woman who steps in front of my camera with my photos making her more confident and happy about herself. 

You could get all this for free….. All I ask is that you pay the Hair and Make up fee of 160 Euros - 200 Euros depending on amount of participants.

THIS IS WHAT my clients say

“Gosh I never knew I could look this way and with Charlotte the day was a party. I love the compliments that everyone is giving me. ” – Linda

“My daughter is leaving for university, I wanted to have a day with her and I cried when I saw the photos. I have never seen a wall with me and my daughter and it was really emotional. The photos mean so much to us" - Camilla

"It was the most transboundary experience, participating in a professional photoshoot with hair, makeup, clothes, lighting and of course a fantastic photographer, Charlotte guided me through an intense session with a firm hand and steady camera. She made me feel relaxed in a safe environment and actually ending up liking it :-) ...the result really blow me away! It was better than I dreamt about. I absolutely recommend making a shoot with Charlotte, it will transform you!” – Ann Charlotte

I had a wonderful experience with my glamour shoot. Charlotte is a very good photographer and she brings out the best in every model. This was such a positive experience and I will treasure my photos for many years to come. – LiseLotte

Charlotte is a fantastic photographer who brings her perfect sense of style and elegance to her photos.
I was surprised to feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole experience. Charlotte’s advice before and during the photo session gave me confidence. The results are more amazing than I could ever have imagined!! – Maiju

“I noticed a change in the way that I see myself. It took a few days for me to even notice it! But these last few mornings after I've woken up and looked in the mirror, I've thought things like "looking good" and "nice skin"- small little compliments that literally just came out of nowhere! Normally when I see my face in the morning, my thoughts are related to how tired I look or how my wrinkles are so noticeable etc. I was shocked at this change! I know my face looks the same, but I truly do see myself differently ❤. Thank you😘.” – Kristen

“I loved the experience of being model for one day! Being pampered with hair and make up and feeling like a queen in beautiful clothes. Charlotte is super professional and is great at making you feel relaxed in front of her camera. At start you feel a bit uncomfortable (unless you're a model for sure!) but very soon I felt like a professional thanks to Charlotte's instructions on how to move and smile! The result is that I have now a collection of great pictures which I will treasure forever! An experience everybody should have! First time, definitely not last time!.” – Magali

“I’ll admit I was dreading the experience, I hate having my photo taken. Charlotte however made me feel so at ease and comfortable that the shoot flew by. The result were beyond what I could have imagined.....had I known this is what I look like I’d have my picture taken all the time �. Thanks you Charlotte! ” – Theresa
