Sweet Lucy girl arrived swiftly and unexpectedly! When mama went to labor, daddy wasn’t even in town! He had to hightail it back to Greenville and made it back for her birth literally JUST in the nick of time! I love birth stories, and it’s one of my favorite things to hear during a Fresh […]

Ooooh Lucy Pearl! This sweet baby girl – I can’t get enough of her. I first met her at her Fresh 48 at Spartanburg Regional, and I about died when I walked in and saw her dream of a nursery. Her sweet mama said she even painted it white so it would photograph well – […]

This sweet family didn’t know whether they’d be having a baby boy or a baby girl, so when baby girl #3 showed up a few weeks early they were all a little surprised! I’m not gonna lie, having three girls would be my DREAM! The matching outfits, the sister sleepovers, the PINK! Gah. It’s just […]

Sweet baby Anderson had the most beautiful woodland theme room – the perfect amount of baby boy charm and sophisticated sweetness for a nursery! I’ve loved watching this family grow from three to four over the last few months.

Bryana was the sweetest mama to work with for her Fresh 48. Baby Zander was due right around the holidays, and knowing I had some travel planned around her due date, we weren’t sure I’d be available for a Fresh 48 when Zander made his debut! Bryana was so sweet and really wanted me to […]

This sweet boy was a dream for his session! Baby Mason was a teeny little guy, and is so very loved by his mama and daddy. I love the soft colors they chose for his nursery. Welcome to the world sweet baby Mason!

I am always so impressed with my gender surprise families (umm, hello patience on a whole new level!), and I was SO excited when this sweet mama shared the news that they had a baby GIRL! She was the tiniest little thing at 5lbs 13oz, and surprised everyone by arriving two weeks early! I loved […]

Baby Grayson is the most PERFECT, squishy little boy! At just 8 days old, he slept like a champ for his entire session. It’s so clear how loved this baby boy is! Thank you so much to the De Palma family for letting me document the arrival of your sweet boy through a maternity session, […]

Welcome to the world, beautiful baby Edie! I loved everything about this sweet girl’s white nursery with gorgeous, vibrant pops of color! She was three weeks old at the time of our session, but still the tiniest, sweetest little thing! She also has the same exact birthday as my own daughter, which was so very […]

I love offering a “mini maternity session” option to all of my newborn clients. It’s such a wonderful way to document this special time as you wait for your baby to arrive, without the pressure and commitment of a full outdoor lifestyle session. Falls Park is always the most gorgeous backdrop, and I especially loved […]

I loved meeting all 9 pounds of precious baby Emily at her in-home newborn session in Greenville! Her nursery was so bright and beautiful – such a great backdrop for a lifestyle newborn session. She slept like a champ the entire shoot, and made my job a breeze!

I love the simplicity of these beautiful, pure, natural newborn sessions in my Greenville natural light studio. To me, it doesn’t take a ton of props and “stuff” to showcase the beauty of your brand new baby. I love photographing newborns on all white to let those sweet little features shine through and to leave […]
