Marshall Family

Happy Holidays!

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.

Mackey Family

Meet Walker, Elliott, Thomas, and Coleman.

Family Session

Mackey Gentlemen

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.

Contact me today about scheduling your Christmas portrait session; it’s not too late.

Davis | Claire’s 1st Christmas

Claire's 1st Christmas

Sweet Baby Claire's 1st Christmas

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:

Brooke | Cheraw Braves Senior | Class of 2012

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.

Custom Senior Session

Class of 2012

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.

Bridal Portraits {Mrs. Piers}

{Mrs. Piers} Bridal Portraits 1

Meet Mrs. Piers! Congratulations Jill & DJ on their beautiful wedding today! You’re a beautiful bride and the two of you are a wonderful couple!

Back in May we worked out locations in Charleston, SC and spent the better part of a day outside braving humidity, bugs, and a beach sand storm. Jill was a trooper & fantastic bride; she was willing to do what I asked for a shot, despite crumbling brick, spider webs, and burning up in her gorgeous gown from Bedazzled in Gastonia! Don’t you just love that dress?! It reminds me of the oh so regal, Grace Kelly wedding gown (minus sleeves; and let’s face it, July in Charleston is much too hot for those)!

Jill chose to use DJ’s favorite surfboard as a prop for the last part of our session–precious & it was a special gift from his Grandfather. She had a canvas at the reception and an 8×10 of the surfboard pictures on the grooms cake table.

Enjoy the portraits-she’s stunning! Check out the gallery!

Pictures from the wedding will be up soon. Thank you Jill for allowing me to capture this very special occasion for you!

Congratulations again to the happy couple! [They’re off to Cancun; face it, you are as jealous as I am:).]
