I love these special portraits, and doing them for these sweet twin sisters to mark their first birthday milestone was such a treat! They’ve been with me since they were born, and this session was the perfect capstone to end their first year with me. I can’t wait to watch them grow!

Welcome to the world, sweet baby Davis! This little guy was just shy of 3 weeks old for our session, and was wide away for most of it! I love when that happens and I can get some great shots of these little ones with their eyes open – a rare sight at times for […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
