This session was extra special because it’s my beautiful baby son, Riley! I photographed him at just 8 days old… and just 8 days post c-section! I probably had no business doing these photos of him that soon after major abdominal surgery, but it was so very worth it. He’s changed and grown so much […]

Sweet little Anderson came in with his whole family a few weeks ago for his 6 month session! At just 6 months old, this little guy is already CRAWLING, and I could not believe how mobile he was! I had the honor of photographing his family’s maternity, hospital and home newborn sessions when he arrived, […]

I photographed sweet Mason’s newborn session back in January, and was SO excited when his mama reached out to schedule his Simply Baby studio session to celebrate his sitting milestone! He’s filled out to be quite the little chunk in the last 7 months, and I can’t get enough of his sweet demeanor and beautiful […]

We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our son, John “Riley” Malone, who was born on August 15th. Riley was born via scheduled c-section at Patewood Memorial in Greenville. After being a visitor there dozens and dozens of time and photographing so many babies in the hospital, it was so crazy to actually […]

It always seems to happen that I get a TON of inquiries for Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn Sessions the same exact week we take our annual family vacation to New Smyrna Beach! When Lauren contacted me to book a hospital session for the arrival of her sweet girl, due smack dab in the middle of […]

I’ve been photographing this family for the past two years, since they were just a family of four! Nora Cate came along this past February to complete their now family of five, and I was able to document her birth with a Fresh 48 session at Patewood Memorial Hospital in Greenville. She came back to […]

I’ve had the privilege of following this sweet baby boy for his entire first year of life! From his mama and daddy’s maternity session, to hospital AND home newborn, as well as a Simply Baby 6 Month milestone session, we’ve captured it all in his first year of life! I can’t believe he is an […]

These sweet sisters came to see me for Norah’s 6 month milestone session! I could not get enough of their sweet smiles and GORGEOUS bright blue eyes. Big sister Avery got in on the fun too, and had a blast showing me her “Elsa smile,” like the character from Frozen. Asking her to do it […]

I love offering a “mini maternity session” option for my newborn clients. It’s such a wonderful way to not only document this special time in a gorgeous location like Falls Park, but it’s also a really fun way for me to get to know families before their sweet baby arrives! How gorgeous are these two […]

These traditional black and white vignette portraits have such a special place in my heart! I photographed sweet Frank when he was just days old, and it was wonderful to see him to capture these special portraits for his 18 month milestone! You’d never guess it, but Frank actually broke out in a huge rash […]

This sweet family booked their session about 4 months before our actual session date, and when it came time to it, rain looked like it was going to threaten our long awaited session! We got super lucky, and got a gorgeous evening for our sunset session! I loved meeting this sweet new family of three […]

It’s hard to believe we have just one week left before we get to meet our son! This second pregnancy has FLOWN by in comparison to when we were expecting James, and while my symptoms have been almost exactly the same, the emotional roller coaster has been a totally different ride! Putting together his room […]
