I photographed Eleanor when she was just months old, so it was so special to see her again to mark her two year milestone with a vignette portrait sitting in my Greenville studio! I think one of the things I love the most about these portraits, is seeing the uniqueness of each child’s personality shine […]

This sweet couple was SO fun for their mini maternity session in downtown Greenville’s Falls Park. I love offering this mini maternity session offering to my newborn clients. It’s a wonderful way to get to know each other before baby arrives, and to capture some precious memories while we do it! We left our sessions […]

I’ve been working with this sweet family since their oldest daughter was just 6 months old! Sadly, they moved away last Summer, but when they came to town for a wedding in early Spring, they reached out to squeeze in a photo session on their trip here! It’s such an honor when family’s stick with […]

Sweet little Wyatt came in for his portrait sitting for my March Vignette Event, just one day after his 2nd birthday! I love when portrait sittings fall so close to a milestone. It’s such a special way to celebrate a birthday, and to create a keepsake of this fleeting time in our little ones life! […]

I photographed the Westendorf family on an unseasonably warm and beautiful day in early February at the South Carolina Botanical Gardens in Clemson. Leslie is an incredibly talented designer and owns Maxpatch Studio, a design firm specializing in design for beautiful and functional kid spaces! In fact, she is helping me put together a precious […]

Late last year, a friend of mine asked me to create a black and white traditional portrait of her son. At the time, we had JUST moved, literally within days, into our newly renovated home, and my studio was in complete shambles as we moved into the house! Even though I couldn’t do the portrait […]

I’ve been photographing sweet Charleigh since she was growing in her mommy’s tummy! From maternity to newborns, and now her 6 month milestone session in the studio, I have LOVED watching this sweet girl grow. It all happens so fast, and it’s incredible to see how much she has changed since her newborn session. So […]

The evening of my session with the Ladd Family was looking iffy weather-wise, but due to tight work schedules, the show had to go on! Ultimately, we got a gorgeously foggy evening in early November, and I LOVE the results! We got all of our shots JUST in the nick of time too, as it […]

I love photographing this gorgeous family! Not only because they’re gorgeous and so fun – but because Charlotte is my very best friend! We met when our babies were just babies, and have had the pleasure of watching each other’s babies grow through milestones together. There’s really not much better on the motherhood journey, than […]

As lifestyle newborn photographers, it’s so important that we prep our clients for what to expect at their session! When I first started out as a professional photographer, I learned the hard way that client’s weren’t going to just know what to do to prepare for their session day, and didn’t know how to dress […]

Sweet Lucy girl arrived swiftly and unexpectedly! When mama went to labor, daddy wasn’t even in town! He had to hightail it back to Greenville and made it back for her birth literally JUST in the nick of time! I love birth stories, and it’s one of my favorite things to hear during a Fresh […]
