This sweet mama reached out to me wanting to book a mommy and me session in the studio with her sweet boys, and I’m so glad we made it happen! Look at all the love these boys have for their mommy!? Are they not the sweetest? We timed the session to be in line with […]

I love these special portraits, and doing them for these sweet twin sisters to mark their first birthday milestone was such a treat! They’ve been with me since they were born, and this session was the perfect capstone to end their first year with me. I can’t wait to watch them grow!

Ohhhh, Jack. Where do I even begin with you! Can you believe this perfect 6 month squish!? We are photographing Jack’s first year, and I loved getting him into the studio for his 6 month session. He was such a ham, and totally rocked his milestone sitter session! We put him in a special heirloom […]

I photographed this beautiful baby girl for her newborn session just over a year before we did her vignette portraits! She has grown into the cutest, sweetest little thing, and I loved having her in the studio for her sitting. She was so expressive, giving us both smiles and serious looks. I’ll be dropping off […]

I met him last Fall for a family session with his mama and daddy, and felt so honored to get to create this traditional portrait for his family to enjoy! He was so intrigued by […]

I photographed Eleanor when she was just months old, so it was so special to see her again to mark her two year milestone with a vignette portrait sitting in my Greenville studio! I think one of the things I love the most about these portraits, is seeing the uniqueness of each child’s personality shine […]

I’ve been working with this sweet family since their oldest daughter was just 6 months old! Sadly, they moved away last Summer, but when they came to town for a wedding in early Spring, they reached out to squeeze in a photo session on their trip here! It’s such an honor when family’s stick with […]

Sweet little Wyatt came in for his portrait sitting for my March Vignette Event, just one day after his 2nd birthday! I love when portrait sittings fall so close to a milestone. It’s such a special way to celebrate a birthday, and to create a keepsake of this fleeting time in our little ones life! […]

Late last year, a friend of mine asked me to create a black and white traditional portrait of her son. At the time, we had JUST moved, literally within days, into our newly renovated home, and my studio was in complete shambles as we moved into the house! Even though I couldn’t do the portrait […]

I’ve been photographing sweet Charleigh since she was growing in her mommy’s tummy! From maternity to newborns, and now her 6 month milestone session in the studio, I have LOVED watching this sweet girl grow. It all happens so fast, and it’s incredible to see how much she has changed since her newborn session. So […]

Sweet baby Emily came to see me at less than two weeks old, and was a dream baby for her studio session! The warm studio air and white nose did it’s job, and she slept like a champ for her entire shoot. I love the simplicity of these studio sessions. It doesn’t take much more […]
