I'm so glad you have found your way to my little home on the web. I'm a photographer, graphic designer, and most importantly a mom to a sweet little girl named James. I'm obsessed with newborns. family stories, helping mamas to better learn how to use their cameras to document their own motherhood journeys, and am constantly seeking to understand the wild and crazy ride that is motherhood.

Documenting our own family memories is one of my favorite “perks” of my job. I have been so excited to capture James’ first day of school photos, and they were everything I hoped they’d be and more! This girl has the sweetest demeanor, and she already seems to know what to do when the camera […]

First Day of School with James


This session represents so much of what I love about lifestyle newborn photography. It’s a celebration of the last 40 weeks of waiting, praying, planning, and anticipating. It’s the joy of the simple yet miraculous fact that your sweet baby is finally home and in your arms. It’s joy, innocence, tenderness and unconditional love, captured […]

This sweet couple is waiting on their baby girl to arrive any day now! This brave mama met me at about 37 weeks pregnant on a warm (okay, hot!) summer day in Falls Park so that we could document this baby girl in her belly, and it was worth the heat! The park is so […]

October 8 Mini Sessions


Somehow, someway, our sweet baby girl is 8 months old. 8 months sounds alarmingly close to 12 months, which means that she will be one soon! How can that even be possible!? I’ll be honest, it’s really been only the last two months or so that I truly feel like I am thriving as a […]

James is 8 Months Old


Hannah and I went to high school together, and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her family in their new home on a recent visit to Tampa. Charley is just a handful of weeks older than my James, and he was such a little ham for his photo session.

If someone told me that I had to pick ONE kind of session, and it would be the only one I could conduct for the rest of my life, it would take me about .6 seconds to yell “Fresh 48”, and all the energy I could muster to somehow contain my excitement. This is what […]

Waking Up with James


Baby Audry might be one of the prettiest babies I have ever met. She was just about a week old when her mama, daddy, and big brother Sammy invited me into their home to document this precious time. I loved everything about her sweet, pink nursery and the way her proud mom and dad admired […]

Audry | Greenville South Carolina Lifestyle Newborn Photographer


This family invited me into their brand new home shortly after baby Brooks came home from the hospital. It isn’t always easy to adjust to your new role as a big brother or sister, but big brother Beckett was so loving and affectionate towards his baby brother. It didn’t hurt that he got a chocolate […]

Baby Brooks | Greenville, SC Lifestyle Newborn Photographer


I met this sweet family at last year’s Spring mini sessions, and this March I photographed their newest addition in their home. Among the MANY reasons I love photographing families, watching them grow is at the very top. Watching Emma in her new role as big sister and seeing her interact with “her baby” was […]

This session was given as a baby shower gift to this family, and I just love how thoughtful that is! Baby Cam was born this past January, and was just the sweetest little newborn. His grandmother was there for our session and had so many sweet little hats and clothes for him. You could see […]
