Greenville Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

I got to know baby Frank’s parents a few weeks before he was born at their maternity session! I was so excited to receive the call that Frank had arrived, three weeks early! Frank arrived just in time for Christmas, and mama wanted to document his arrival with some photos by the Christmas tree at […]

This sweet little boy was so tiny and just the sleepiest little guy for his newborn session. I don’t know that he woke up once in the time I was visiting! Mason’s safari themed nursery was so precious as well, and was the perfect backdrop for our cozy in home session. Welcome to the world, […]

One of the best parts of working as a newborn photographer is connecting with fellow mamas. I LOVE getting to meet so many sweet new babies, and getting to hold and visit with them is so wonderful, but honestly, it’s the connection with the mamas that I truly treasure. As a new mom myself, I […]

Greenville Spartanburg Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

This session represents so much of what I love about lifestyle newborn photography. It’s a celebration of the last 40 weeks of waiting, praying, planning, and anticipating. It’s the joy of the simple yet miraculous fact that your sweet baby is finally home and in your arms. It’s joy, innocence, tenderness and unconditional love, captured […]

Baby Audry might be one of the prettiest babies I have ever met. She was just about a week old when her mama, daddy, and big brother Sammy invited me into their home to document this precious time. I loved everything about her sweet, pink nursery and the way her proud mom and dad admired […]

This family invited me into their brand new home shortly after baby Brooks came home from the hospital. It isn’t always easy to adjust to your new role as a big brother or sister, but big brother Beckett was so loving and affectionate towards his baby brother. It didn’t hurt that he got a chocolate […]

This session was given as a baby shower gift to this family, and I just love how thoughtful that is! Baby Cam was born this past January, and was just the sweetest little newborn. His grandmother was there for our session and had so many sweet little hats and clothes for him. You could see […]

I had the honor of photographing Miss Isabella Grace at just 5 days old. This session was particularly special to me, because this little babe was present at my own daughters birth just a few months ago. How can that be? Because her mama is the incredibly talented Sabrina Fields, who was our birth photographer for James’ arrival. Isabella was nestled safe in her mamas belly for the 15 hours Sabrina was with us to document her James’ birth – how cool is that!?

In celebration of the fact that it is BABY MONTH and that we are officially full term at 37 weeks, I wanted to share a tour of our baby girl’s little nursery. I have had so much fun putting this room together, and often find myself just standing in the room admiring her little things, and soaking in the smell of Dreft and fresh diapers. Gosh, those smells are just so good.
