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!

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 […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]
