Mary Weston is officially the tiniest little newborn baby I have ever photographed, coming in at just north of 4 pounds! I went in to see this family at Patewood Memorial Hospital on Thanksgiving morning. There is something just so very special about photographing families as they grow. Watching this family welcome their second baby […]

As a lifestyle newborn photographer for nearly 5 years, I have always felt there is a lack of support and community for our beautiful, specific niche. In an effort to bring us all together, I’ve created a FREE Facebook group for photographers who shoot lifestyle newborn sessions in the hospital or home. I would LOVE […]

Ooooh this sweet girl. She’s been with me since day one, and watching her grow and thrive over her first year of life despite the many challenges she has faced has been so very wonderful. There is SO much love between these three, and you can literally feel it in their presence. I can’t wait […]

Funny story – when I arrived for her newborn session, the power at their house had JUST gone out minutes before! They were super […]

Sweet Nora was a tiny and dainty little thing, and barely made a peep her entire session! She was just so content, curious and happy and I loved every minute with her! Photographing families in their own space is so much fun, and I loved using her precious nursery as the sweet backdrop for her […]

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!
