The Prettyman Family | Greenville In Home Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

August 26, 2018

Ooo this sweet family! These siblings are just 15 months apart. Big sister Eleanor was a little camera shy but we were able to coax some sweet smiles out of this girl before too long. I love capturing families in the home, and am so thankful the Prettyman’s invited me in to capture this precious […]

I loved working with this family so much! I had the opportunity to meet Caroline and Dale several weeks before their baby girl arrived for their Maternity Mini Session in Downtown Greenville. It was so special to go visit with them at home and finally meet miss Charleigh! Little Miss Charleigh is part of my […]

The Sieber family invited me to their gorgeous Fountain Inn farm to photograph them as a new family of 3! How beautiful is Luci Banks!? I loved meeting them and seeing the beautiful home they built recently. This little girl is going to have the BEST childhood growing up on a farm with so much […]

When I met Lauren at her lifestyle newborn session a few weeks ago, we INSTANTLY connected. That is one of my very favorite things about photographing families, is meeting moms who you just immediately develop a connection week. I don’t know that we stopped chatting the entire session, just sharing stories about motherhood – the […]

Sweet Connor was the sleepiest little guy for our in home lifestyle newborn session in Greenville. I don’t think he woke up once during our time together! He even gave us a few smiles throughout the session which was so sweet. Welcome to the world Connor! We’re so glad you’re here.

The Frank Family | Downtown Greenville Family Photography

This beautiful family of five met me in downtown Greenville for their lifestyle family photo session on a warm summer night! These three might be the sweetest, most loving siblings I’ve ever met. I’ve always had a soft spot for families of 5 – I’m certain it’s so much work, but dang – look at […]

I had the best time with Linda and Jeff during their “mini” maternity session in Falls Park! I love offering this special session to my newborn clients. I have found that most people want to document their pregnancy in a small way, saving the big shoots for when baby is here. My maternity mini session […]

I’ve had the privilege of documenting this beautiful girl’s first year of life, and what a beautiful year it has been. We captured her first birthday milestone at the Furman Rose Garden right at the peak of all the beautiful blooms. She is happy, healthy, and just absolutely perfect. Sweet little Everett, it’s been an […]

I’m finally getting around to sharing some of the beautiful images we captured last Fall! I had the profound privilege of photographing 85 families in the Fall of 2017. 85! That is a LOT of family love, and I loved every single play-filled session. This crew was SO MUCH fun. I don’t often get the […]

I have loved watching these sweet girls grow over the last 8+ months! This is the third time I’ve had the privilege of photographing these sweet girls. Last Fall we had a beautiful shoot on a tall grass field, and in December we had a pajama party for my Christmas Pajama Mini Sessions. It’s so […]

The last time I saw this sweet boy he was just days old and the teeniest, tiniest thing. You can see some of the images from his in home lifestyle newborn session here. This sweet boy was so smily and happy during our sunset session on a beautiful field in Greenville. There is so much […]
