This was the Kowarick’s first official family photo session, and I’m so honored I had the privilege of photographing them for such a special occasion! Working with big kids is so much fun, and Elijah and Regan were such troopers […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shortly after they moved to town, they were expecting baby #2! I had the honor of photographing their family for a maternity session, as well […]

This sweet family asked me to take their first family photos since welcoming their sweet baby boy, Nolan! It was a chilly evening at Edinburgh West, but my goodness it was a pretty one with a beautiful golden sunset. We took these a little past the peak of Fall leaves and I gotta say, I […]

Ohhh this sweet family and these gorgeous girls! Louise and Marion are the sweetest little ladies. Baby Marion’s nickname at school is “little jelly doughnut” and oh my goodness if that’s not just perfect for this squishy and sweet little beauty! And big sister Louise has the sweetest, most curious little personality! I loved every […]

This beautiful family of five met me in downtown Greenville for their lifestyle family photo session on a warm summer night! These three might be the sweetest, most loving siblings I’ve ever met. I’ve always had a soft spot for families of 5 – I’m certain it’s so much work, but dang – look at […]

I’ve had the privilege of documenting this beautiful girl’s first year of life, and what a beautiful year it has been. We captured her first birthday milestone at the Furman Rose Garden right at the peak of all the beautiful blooms. She is happy, healthy, and just absolutely perfect. Sweet little Everett, it’s been an […]

I’m finally getting around to sharing some of the beautiful images we captured last Fall! I had the profound privilege of photographing 85 families in the Fall of 2017. 85! That is a LOT of family love, and I loved every single play-filled session. This crew was SO MUCH fun. I don’t often get the […]

I have loved watching these sweet girls grow over the last 8+ months! This is the third time I’ve had the privilege of photographing these sweet girls. Last Fall we had a beautiful shoot on a tall grass field, and in December we had a pajama party for my Christmas Pajama Mini Sessions. It’s so […]
