I am Xandrea Avonné. An extremely passionate, expressive, lover of life . I specialize in the art of stopping time! ..Everyday I am blessed to open my eyes and witness the beauties of life in all of its many forms. From the look on a groom's face from seeing his bride for the first time,to the high school senior starting a new path in their life. I am beyond fortunate to share the best parts of your life with you! Originally an Atlanta, GA native, but I have been calling the streets of Charlotte, NC my home since a very young age. I grew up doing many things. Singing in church choirs, going to dance classes, doing cartwheels down hills, coloring barbie houses, building forts; You name it- I did it. Other than ballet and music, photography was always a passion I gravitated toward in my spare time. To this day, it is a passion that continuously teaches me to see life in its truest colors. It is very much my escape. Ultimately, I ADORE getting to know my clients, and building relationships with them to experience what life means in their eyes. Lets face it, I am a hopeless romantic!.
When I am not behind the lens I perform in various musicals, operas, dance shows, and cabarets as a singer and dancer. The FAB life, as many call it. Music has always been a big part of my life. So much so, that I received a BM in Musical Theater from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. And while in college, I realized I love this double life; and even with this binary lifestyle, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am eternally grateful for the gifts the Jesus has blessed me with and I completely LOVE what I do!
Lets have an exciting time!
"Let all that you do, be done in Love"
