Baby Grayson | Greenville Simpsonville Lifestyle In Home Newborn Photographer

January 23, 2019

Baby Grayson is the most PERFECT, squishy little boy! At just 8 days old, he slept like a champ for his entire session. It’s so clear how loved this baby boy is! Thank you so much to the De Palma family for letting me document the arrival of your sweet boy through a maternity session, […]

Baby Edie | Greenville Spartanburg Lifestyle In Home Newborn Photographer

January 16, 2019

Welcome to the world, beautiful baby Edie! I loved everything about this sweet girl’s white nursery with gorgeous, vibrant pops of color! She was three weeks old at the time of our session, but still the tiniest, sweetest little thing! She also has the same exact birthday as my own daughter, which was so very […]

January 12, 2019

I love offering a “mini maternity session” option to all of my newborn clients. It’s such a wonderful way to document this special time as you wait for your baby to arrive, without the pressure and commitment of a full outdoor lifestyle session. Falls Park is always the most gorgeous backdrop, and I especially loved […]

Baby Emily | Greenville In Home Newborn Photographer

January 10, 2019

I loved meeting all 9 pounds of precious baby Emily at her in-home newborn session in Greenville! Her nursery was so bright and beautiful – such a great backdrop for a lifestyle newborn session. She slept like a champ the entire shoot, and made my job a breeze!

The 2nd Annual CMP Christmas Jammie Sessions!

Natural Simple Newborn Studio Session in Greenville, SC

November 27, 2018

I love the simplicity of these beautiful, pure, natural newborn sessions in my Greenville natural light studio. To me, it doesn’t take a ton of props and “stuff” to showcase the beauty of your brand new baby. I love photographing newborns on all white to let those sweet little features shine through and to leave […]

October 31, 2018

It’s that time of year, my friends! It’s no secret that I am totally and completely obsessed with the holidays. Between you and me, I’ve been drinking my coffee out of Christmas themed mugs and burning a pine scented candle since early September. I know, I know. I just can’t help myself! I’ll be hosting the […]

The Cole Family | Greenville Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn Photographer

August 31, 2018

I was so excited to get this note from this mama that she was expecting baby number four, and wanted me to come to the hospital for a Fresh 48 in Greenville, South Carolina. I met this gorgeous family in 2016 shortly after they welcomed baby #3. At the time, I was VERY pregnant myself […]

August 29, 2018

I’ve been photographing this sweet family since before William was even born! The first session I did with the Geppi’s was a maternity session for their first child who is now a big brother. One of my favorite things about working with families is seeing them again and again, watching them grow and add family […]
