Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing a long-time family friend, Lisa. I think she looks a little like Elizabeth Taylor, but at any rate, she’s stunning!
Lisa was a real joy to work with on Friday. She’s a student at Converse College; she’s double majoring in Psychology & Theater. Oh, did you already gather that she has amazing style?! Uh yea!
As a photographer, I study people. During each session, I pick up on the details that characterize people. One of my favorite things about Lisa was the quirky little smirk that starts in her eyes and ends with the twitch of her cheek. <– <3 it:)
Lisa, your gallery is almost fully uploaded. Look for an email tomorrow.
Meet Addie Grace. She & her mom Katy won the 2011 Fall Photo Contest. Addie is beautiful. She’s happy. She’s 5 months old. She loves elephants…errr…her mom loves elephants. And he has the sweetest baby jaws I’ve ever seen!
It was a real pleasure to work with Katy & Addie Grace for the first time this Sunday. I really cannot wait to capture more awesome moments as she grows & changes!
Check out the Facebook album & make sure to leave them lots of love!
This Sunday, I had the opportunity to meet the amazing Marshall family. Frank, Paige and the girls were a delight to work with. We discussed outfit choices that would work best, and Paige did an excellent job pulling them all together.
My assistant, Mayci, and I pulled out lots of props/games so that the girls would be more relaxed when it was their turns for their individual pictures.
Enjoy your pictures guys. I had a blast working with you and cannot wait to unveil your gallery! Make sure the rest of you go over to the Facebook page and show them lots of love on their album.
One hour sessions start at $75. Contact me today and let’s get your Christmas Portrait Session scheduled: email@example.com
On Black Friday, I met the Harty’s for some family portraits here in Rock Hill. I’ve known Kelly & the kids since Parker, the youngest, was only a few months old. And correction, I’ve known them since Hunter–the handsome young man– was a baby. It was a real pleasure to get together with them and take these awesome pictures. They’re all growing up way too fast!
Enjoy your pictures guys!

Goodnight all! Hope you’ve had a great Thanksgiving:)
Meet Walker, Elliott, Thomas, and Coleman.
These guys were awesome! We took a drive out the country for this session. The three youngest played a little football, while Walker helped his mom and me set the scene. Honestly, I was nervous because it had been so overcast all day, but praise be, because the sun could not have been any more prefect Saturday afternoon when we arrived on location!
Big thanks to all four of you Mackey gentlemen for helping out and being such awesome models! Check out more images on Facebook in the coming days.

Merry Christmas, Davis family! Thank you for letting me come into your home and help you celebrate Claire’s first Christmas.
Thanks to John, we set up a backdrop complete with white Christmas lights and a hidden boppie and let Claire lose herself in all of the sparkly lights. She was more interested in eating them after the first 5 minutes than looking at any of the 4 crazy people, who were trying to get her attention. Even her dearest Mr. Panda did not do much to make her look in my general direction.
It has been a pleasure to watch your family grow over the past year and I look forward to watching you grow in the years to come!
1 Hour Sessions are $75; there are plenty of openings left, contact me today to schedule your Christmas portraits: email@example.com
Perfect weather + The most beautiful Senior, to date + My favorite place on earth, Cheraw = The Best Senior Session:)
Early Sunday morning, my assistant Mayci and I packed up the car, coffee in hand, and drove East to the land that I love, Cheraw, SC! (Let me hear a Whoop-Whoop for the 29520.) First, we drove out and enjoyed some of the best fried chicken ever from Yogi Bear Chicken in Hartsville; then, we stopped in Florence, SC and took some precious pictures of baby Claire and her sweet family (post to follow:)). Once we had our mini-set packed back up–thank you John, we went into Cheraw and set up our sets on my family’s land in Brocks Mill.
Our senior, Brooke wanted a vintage inspired shoot full of props, brightly colored fall leaves, and a red barn. “Something different,” she said. And luckily, Brook and I had similar ideas; Mayci & I brought suitcases, a set of lawn chairs and a table, an Eastlake chair, linens, cameras, and much more.
She’s gorgeous, she knew exactly how to pose, and she has a great down to earth personality. Brooke agreed to do a little interview for me; you’ll see what I mean:) See what she had to say about herself, in response to these questions, below.
1. What’s your worst habit?
I worry way to much.
2. Who is/are your role model/s?
Dont really have one :/
3. Right now, I want to be …
In college studying nursing and pharmacy.
4. 5 random facts about you:
I’m from Louisiana. I would love to model. I love sunny days. I love school. I love to play golf.
5. Your favorite quote. And/Or favorite song and why.
“You choose your own mood and I’m going to choose to be the happiest person ever.” I love this quote because I feel like other people determine my moods, when it is actually me.
Brooke, I hope you enjoy your pictures, as much as I enjoyed my time with you.
