It’s always a little nerve wrecking when a fellow photographer invites you to photograph their family! Kendra Hazelwood is an incredibly talented wedding photographer in the area, and for over a YEAR now we have been trying to align the stars to make a family session happen for her family. We finally made it happen […]

Welcome to the May edition of At Home with the Malone’s! It’s been an awesome month for us, and we’ve enjoyed the start of our South Carolina Summer (because even though it’s not technically even Summer yet, it is HOT HOT HOT here!). Life Lately I feel really proud of myself for continuing to document […]

Oh, sweet Aviva! This baby girl made my job SO EASY! I’m often asked how long sessions take, and the truth is – it’s really unpredictable! I have photos that I love to get at every single session, and I try to have an efficient workflow in place so that I don’t take up a […]

What I’m about to say might sound a little crazy, but in the first year of my business, I had never really considered CONSISTENCY in my imagery. After my very awkward experimentation phase (would you believe I used to edit VERY dark and moody), I had finally discovered that I really love light, bright, film […]

I entered a sea of PINK one afternoon in late April when I arrived at Northside Hospital in Atlanta for baby Kaitlin’s Fresh 48. Kaitlin makes baby girl #4 for this beautiful family! Her and her sisters were all gender surprises, and it’s safe to say – this family makes beautiful baby girls! Kaitlin has […]

Ohhhh, Jack. Where do I even begin with you! Can you believe this perfect 6 month squish!? We are photographing Jack’s first year, and I loved getting him into the studio for his 6 month session. He was such a ham, and totally rocked his milestone sitter session! We put him in a special heirloom […]

Falls Park has come alive again and Spring has officially sprung! I feel so lucky to live in Greenville, where our downtown has been immaculately planned and maintained. Falls Park is so gorgeous, and for photo sessions and family leisure alike, I LOVE going down to visit. It’s especially beautiful on cool Spring mornings, just […]

This sweet family invited me all the way to Charlotte to photograph their lifestyle newborn session in their home! I love being invited to nearby cities, especially for sweet little babies like Wells! He was the tiniest little guy, weight just 4lbs 15oz at birth! He was closer to 6lbs by the time we had […]

Jumping into family and newborn photography full time was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done, but it’s also been the most rewarding, best decision of my life! Owning my own business was a dream for many years before I took the plunge, and after years of working in corporate America and working photography […]

I photographed this beautiful baby girl for her newborn session just over a year before we did her vignette portraits! She has grown into the cutest, sweetest little thing, and I loved having her in the studio for her sitting. She was so expressive, giving us both smiles and serious looks. I’ll be dropping off […]

This sweet family has been with me from the very beginning when Averly was growing in her mamas tummy. A couple weeks ago, we photographed her one year session on a beautiful morning in Falls Park! I can’t believe it’s been a year since this sweet girl’s Fresh 48 and newborn sessions. I also photographed […]
