This session was extra special because it’s my beautiful baby son, Riley! I photographed him at just 8 days old… and just 8 days post c-section! I probably had no business doing these photos of him that soon after major abdominal surgery, but it was so very worth it. He’s changed and grown so much […]

Sweet little Anderson came in with his whole family a few weeks ago for his 6 month session! At just 6 months old, this little guy is already CRAWLING, and I could not believe how mobile he was! I had the honor of photographing his family’s maternity, hospital and home newborn sessions when he arrived, […]

I photographed sweet Mason’s newborn session back in January, and was SO excited when his mama reached out to schedule his Simply Baby studio session to celebrate his sitting milestone! He’s filled out to be quite the little chunk in the last 7 months, and I can’t get enough of his sweet demeanor and beautiful […]

I’ve been photographing this family for the past two years, since they were just a family of four! Nora Cate came along this past February to complete their now family of five, and I was able to document her birth with a Fresh 48 session at Patewood Memorial Hospital in Greenville. She came back to […]

These sweet sisters came to see me for Norah’s 6 month milestone session! I could not get enough of their sweet smiles and GORGEOUS bright blue eyes. Big sister Avery got in on the fun too, and had a blast showing me her “Elsa smile,” like the character from Frozen. Asking her to do it […]

These traditional black and white vignette portraits have such a special place in my heart! I photographed sweet Frank when he was just days old, and it was wonderful to see him to capture these special portraits for his 18 month milestone! You’d never guess it, but Frank actually broke out in a huge rash […]

Oooooh baby Betsy, I couldn’t get enough of this sweet girl! She came to see me at one week old, and slept like a dream for our entire session. Best part is Betsy actually lives next door, so I REALLY get a front seat ticket to watch this little lady grow! Welcome to the world, […]

Sweet Julian! My goodness, I couldn’t get enough of this sweet boy. I had the honor of photographing his big sister back in March for her traditional heirloom portrait sitting, but little bro was a little too small at the time! We photographed him this Summer at 10 months old, and I am in LOVE […]

This sweet baby boy came to see me for his 6 month milestone and was a DREAM in the studio! Oskar was all smiles, and I couldn’t get enough of his sweetness for his “Simply Baby Session.” I’ll see him again this Fall for his one year outdoor lifestyle family session and I cannot wait […]

One perk of having my photography studio in my Greenville home is easy access to update portraits of my own sweet little lady! This girl has had her fair share of photos taken, and one Sunday morning she was being so sweet and adorable, that I couldn’t help but get her all dressed up for […]

I photographed baby William at just 24 hours old in the hospital, and 8 days later he came to the studio to see me for some more formal newborn portraits. I will always be drawn to a pure and simple style of photography for newborns. As a client once said “God makes them perfect on […]

I photographed Sadie when she was just a couple weeks old for her in home newborn session in Spartanburg, and as soon as she hit her “sitting” milestone, she came to see me in my Greenville studio! I love when I get to follow these little ones in their first year of life, and can’t […]
