These portraits are known for their traditional black and whites, but the color images just really speak to me. I love how beautiful Hudson’s portraits are, and I know his family will enjoy them […]

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 […]

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 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 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 […]

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! […]
