Greenville SC Children's Heirloom Portrait Photographer

Greenville SC Heirloom Portrait Photographer


EJ | Upstate SC Heirloom Portrait Photographer

I photographed EJ as a brand new baby, and now he is a big 2 year old! We had SO much fun during his portrait sitting. It’s always amazing to see a little one I photographed as a brand new baby a few years later. Watching families grow from behind my camera is one of the things I love most about my job as a photographer!

Greenville SC Personality Portraits


Charlotte & Ellie | Greenville, SC Black and White Personality Portraits

I’ve been photograhping these sweet sisters since they were itty bitty, and I can’t believe how big they’ve gotten!

Greenville SC Personality Portraits


Isla | Grenville, SC Personality Portraits

In late 2022 I introduced a brand new offering at CMP called my “Simplicity Portraits” and Isla was one of the first to come to the studio for this very special session! I am OBSESSED with the playful, fun, and simple nature of these portraits that make these images truly shine.

Greenville SC Lifestyle Studio 6 Month Session


Mary Collins | Greenville SC First Year Membership

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a mid year sitter session is easily a favorite of mine. This post is PURE SUGAR. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a mid year sitter session is easily a favorite of mine. There’s just not much better than a squishy little babe – who can’t crawl away from me quite yet!

Vignette Portraits

Annie & Wade | Greenville, SC Heirloom Portrait Photographer

Sweet Annie and Wade made a long trip in for their heirloom portrait session, and I’m so thankful they did! We had so much fun giggling, laughing and just being silly during our time together.

Greenville SC Newborn Photographer Natural Light Studio


The Johnson Family | Greenville SC Natural Newborn Photographer

Celebrating the arrival of sweet baby Geoffrey with the Johnson family was such a joy! I photographed big brother James Austin four years ago when he was an itty bitty baby, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to capture the baby that completes this beautiful family of five. Big sister Amelia was so attentive to her big brothers, and I loved capturing the natural and authentic connection in my Greenville, SC studio.


Portrait Photography

Pierce | Heirloom Vignette Children’s Portraits in Greenville, SC

Pierce came in from Charlotte, NC to have his special portrait captured! He is the same age as his big sister was when she made the trip in for portraits! Ironically, he was in mama’s tummy at that time. I love that this work allows me to watch children and families grow!

Flash for Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

For Photographers

Reagan | Flash for Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

I had so much fun with Reagan and her beautiful family during our in home newborn session in Greenville, SC. Despite the fact it was a beautiful, sunny day, the nursery light was a little dim, and this session was shot using FLASH! If that surprises you – good! That’s the point 🙂



Charlotte Grace | Greenville, SC Heirloom Portrait First Birthday Photographer

Sweet Charloote Grace came to the studio to commemorate her first birthday! I loved having her in for her heirloom portrait, and my “lifestyle add-on” offering, which is truly the best of both worlds.
