I photographed Sadie when she was just a couple weeks old for her in home newborn session in Spartanburg, and as soon as she hit her “sitting” milestone, she came to see me in my Greenville studio! I love when I get to follow these little ones in their first year of life, and can’t […]

Sweet little Hattie was so tiny and perfect, and I have been dying to meet her ever since we photographed her maternity session earlier this year! These three are so sweet, and mama and daddy are so proud of their […]

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 […]

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.

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.
