I traveled to Wilmington on a week day to meet Lindsay + Rob at one of their favorite, most special spots. Airlie Gardens is where Rob proposed to her, and I loved exploring this new place. It’s got the Carolina charm with coastal water views and touches of ‘Greek’ architecture where the fountain, glass art, […]

I loved visiting Dallas Lavender Lane Farm again last Summer! Each June, their lavender plants bloom, and you can only imagine the amazing aroma of the place. It’s really neat that we actually have lavender farms in the Carolinas. This session was an absolute dream and So much fun! I loved working with Sydney, and […]

We chose Anne Springs Greenway, specifically the Dairy Barn, as it offered the picturesque vibe they were going for. The […]

Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens quickly became one of my favorite places to visit this past year. The conservatory in particular is an amazing spot to explore with all the variety of plants. K+J are adorable together, and we had a great time during our sweet session.

What a fairytale bridal session!! To say that I loved this bridal portrait session is an understatement. Aubrey was a literal dream to work with, and I loved helping bring her vision to life. She is a ‘Lord of the Rings’ fan, a cosplay costume+accessory designer and occasional model, and a lover of vintage ‘olde […]

For years now, Glencairn Gardens in Rock Hill, SC remains to be one of my favorite sweet little locations. I found the park while I was a college student at Winthrop over a decade ago. It’s still a hidden gem, while time and time again it makes the sweetest spot for photo shoots. There is […]

Most of us really love that golden ‘glowy’ look when it comes to outdoor portraits, and for good reason! Great lighting makes for dreamier all around better photos. So, how do you make sure you get that when you schedule an outdoor photo shoot? It’s pretty simple: begin photos later in the evening as Spring […]

I absolutely loved this sweet maternity session in Baxter Village along the shopping strip. Shirley was beautiful in her blue velvet dress, and I enjoyed the photos we made together. What a great first session of the year!
