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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
