Ooooh this sweet girl. She’s been with me since day one, and watching her grow and thrive over her first year of life despite the many challenges she has faced has been so very wonderful. There is SO much love between these three, and you can literally feel it in their presence. I can’t wait […]

Oh this sweet family! This was our third shoot together, and it was my favorite to date. We had so many reasons to celebrate for our session, and chose the meaningful Cancer Survivors Park in Greenville, SC. I’m so thankful to know this family, and to be watching these sweet kiddos growing.

I’ve had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family for the past few years, and I was so excited when Anna reached out with an idea for a Summer session for her family!

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 has been with me from the very beginning when Averly was growing in her mamas tummy. A couple weeks ago, we photographed her one year session on a beautiful morning in Falls Park!
