This precious studio newborn session almost didn’t happen. We had originally planned to have a Fresh 48 session in the hospital, but Indi’s arrival into the world was long and left mama with some post delivery complications that prevented us from moving forward with our plans! When that happens, I love to offer the studio […]

Oh this sweet family! This was our third shoot together, and it was my favorite to date. We had so many reasons to celebrate for our session, and chose the meaningful Cancer Survivors Park in Greenville, SC. I’m so thankful to know this family, and to be watching these sweet kiddos growing.

Sweet baby JJ! One of my first babies back after welcoming my own baby boy, and let me just say, I have a new soft spot for baby boys! He was a sleepy little thing, and I love how tiny he looks in mama and daddy’s arms. We already have his one year Heirloom Portrait […]

Oh sweet Annabelle! This gorgeous girl gave us the sweetest range of expressions during her portrait sitting. I loved every minute with her, and I can’t wait to have her baby sister back in the studio in a couple years for her portrait!

Sweet baby Ford was so good to me for his Fresh 48 session at Greenville Memorial Hospital. I couldn’t get over his precious squishy cheeks and beautiful dark hair! Welcome to the world, little buddy!

Ruby is my best friends daughter, and was SO good to me for her studio newborn session! At just 5lbs 10oz, she is a tiny little thing, but she is growing quickly. I love how she let me curl her up so sweetly, just like she was curled in mamas belly.

Emma! What a sweet little lady. Every room in this home was so gorgeous, with the most beautifully minimalistic decor I’ve ever seen! I loved Emma’s sweet nursery. At just about 20 months apart, big brother was sweet and shy, and so tender with his baby sister. It was a little gloomy on this particular […]

I know it’s hard to believe, but this IS in fact a real baby girl! Is she not just gorgeous? I’ve been photographing Harper since she was in her mamas tummy – only we didn’t even know she was in there yet! I love this family, and I’ve loved watching Harper grow. I’m already counting […]

Wow, 2019. You were good to me. When the year started, I had BIG goals for this little business of mine. I wanted to launch a new lighting and posing course for fellow lifestyle newborn photographers, and photograph 60 newborns over the course of the year. I was revved up and riding the high of […]

Sweet Hudson came in for his Heirloom portrait sitting this Fall, and I still can’t get over his gorgeous red hair! These portraits are known for their traditional black and whites, but the color images just really speak to me. I love how beautiful Hudson’s portraits are, and I know his family will enjoy them […]

Hannah Jane is the baby sister of sweet Annabelle, who I photographed a little over 2 years ago as a brand new baby herself! It’s funny, because some sessions just stick out in my mind more than others, and I remember Annabelle’s newborn session so vividly. In fact, you can check it out here! Hannah […]

It’s been a wonderful year of following sweet Jack, and SURPRISE, he’s going to be a big brother very soon! This sweet boy has turned into the most precious toddler and I’ve loved following along for his newborn, 6 month and now one year session. Can’t wait to find out if he is going to […]
