The wedding took place on a beautiful day in late October at Belle’s Venue and Farms in Jefferson, SC. It was high 70’s without a cloud in the sky. (Okay, I probably would have preferred a cloud or two, but it was truly a spectacular day as far as weather is concerned.) The Venue: The […]

This was my first time doing a family photoshoot where I hadn’t been to the location beforehand. Normally, if I am shooting in a new place (like this one here), I go there once or twice beforehand and get a feel for the land, figure out where the sun will be during the shoot, and […]

This dreamy field is quickly becoming a favorite spot of mine for family portraits in Greenville SC. Whether capturing those whimsical photos of family walking through the tall grass, or embracing beneath a weeping tree, this spot helps to create a beautiful backdrop for family photos.

I will start off by saying I am very good friends with this lovely family – we share a mutual cousin so we’re more like family! This was a quick shoot and I had a lot of fun with them, but my children being present threw me for a loop. My children ask me all […]

This wedding had an outdoor ceremony and made it easy to transition to the reception. The venue was quaint, perfect for a small to medium size wedding. Although it did not have a sprawling property, it made up for it with a manicured garden and stone fountain. For some, a church ceremony is a must. […]

Meet Baby Bruce. This rad little dude was 2 weeks old at his newborn session. Our photo shoot was bright and early, and Bruce was wide awake for the entire thing! Whenever I meet a newborn in person, I’m always amazed at how tiny they are! They look larger than life in photos, so I […]

Meet VIctoria, Matt, and Owen! I was able to photograph this lovely family on Rockaway Beach on a partly cloudy afternoon. There were some positives and some negatives to this shoot; the negatives all weather related as this family was just so pleasurable. I typically like to schedule all family sessions about 2 hours before […]

Meet the Dowdell Family. They live down the block from this serene bay spot which just so happens to be home to a charming lighthouse! It was quite picturesque and a no brainer when it came to scouting locations. That being said, I still made two scouting trips prior to the photoshoot. I knew where […]

Meet Kim, Zack, and Tucker. We met on the bay in Roxbury, New York two hours before sunset. I was looking for that dreamy golden light, but in hindsight, I think these overcast family portraits worked better for us. We tried to get some photographs of their dog, too, but he wasn’t really having it. […]
