‘Mommy & Me’ photos of my sister and her little girl were precious. Mabry wanted to recreate a 1990s photo of her and her mom, and they had outfits nearly identical to the original photo moment. I love this idea and would definitely enjoy more photo sessions where we recreate decades old photo moments. I […]

I’ve absolutely enjoyed making beautiful photos in the eye catching rows of pink peach trees in South Carolina over the last few years! When they bloom, you know Spring is here, and Winter is finishing up. These peach blossoms are always dependent on the current weather in March that varies from year to year. Typically […]

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!

I have so enjoyed photographing the awesome Fleming family since we relocated to Fort Mill, SC a handful of years ago. Our first session began with their dog, then they welcomed their first baby girl, and now they have their 2nd daughter. I’m grateful that I get to document loving growing families, and I’m blessed […]

This year’s local sunflowers were beautiful! Spring Farms had their first year of sunflowers in Fort Mill, and the community loved them. I’m blessed to have some great families to photograph in such a gorgeous golden setting [pp_gallery id=”8337″]

The Fort Mill, SC peach blossoms this year were lovely! I get so giddy when I see those pink buds start to bloom in the late Winter / early Spring. “If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in Spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in […]

I had the privilege to photograph this awesome little family of three. I met Diane and Connor back in 2017 as we did Christmas pictures with just the two of them and their fur baby. Now, they have their precious new daughter Amelia. Diane is a fellow Disney fan, so I thought the baby’s nursery […]

Well, the month of October flew by! That’s how I feel about this entire year of 2018! Before the pretty cotton fields were harvested, I’m glad we got to make a few photos. As it’s called in the south, the “southern snow” has become one of my favorite landmarks to take pictures in. Cotton is […]
