“It’s [beauty] a kind of radiance. People who possess a true inner beauty, their eyes are a little brighter, their skin a little more dewy. They vibrate at a different frequency.”
— Cameron Diaz

Hi, I’m Charity.

I’m a mama to three beautiful humans and have a passion for writing, creating and capturing sweet stories with my camera. I was born in Chicago, but am a southern girl at heart. I lived in NC for the first eleven years of my life, but military life brought me to sunny Arizona. From a young age, I have always found writing to be an outlet, and to capture the memories that I will forever hold on tightly too. I have a hippie soul, and find beauty in the simplistic things in life. Even if I’m going through muck and mire, you will find me at my happiest as I try to find joy in even the most toughest moments in life. I love tacos, a good glass of red wine Fleetwood Mac and Lauren Daigle, and my favorite flowers are sunflowers - if my husband would allow I would probably put sunflowers all over my my house, in my car, because they evoke so much joy and light.

Art, Design and Writing have been a huge part of my life for a long time. I guess you can say I come from a long line of artists, including my mom who is a musician and can play just about any and every instrument and sing to any tune, and can draw and write like no other—my grandma who had her own art studio within her home here in Arizona. I remember as a child coming in and seeing tons of her paintings on canvas and colorful paints on palettes. My dad is a photographer after retiring Navy of 30+ years and is very active speaker for military men and women. I have been writing from a very young age and find solace and healing in it. I find such joy in creating, designing, and hope that each of my designs will bring joy, love & light to each person they cross paths with.


I am located in Southern Arizona and specialize in emotive and artistic photography and find joy in telling the stories of every soul that comes before me. We ALL have a story to tell. I want to show you how you lived so passionately in this lifetime. I want to tell your families story so that you can freeze it in time, because the pitter patter of little feet will one day be no more, and life, no matter how much we want to goes by ever so quickly. If you would like to inquire, please email me at charityburnett@mwstudio.co.


I’m drawn to the emotive and artistic side of photography, and the way we connect with one another. A session with me requires you to slow down and simply be. It appreciates long embraces, the art of discovery, subtleties of affection, and making time to say the words we don’t always stop to say.

My joy is in seeing your story unfold from behind the lens.
