Selah Pearl

How beautiful is this little peanut!  I took her big brother Roman’s newborn photos almost two years ago… can you tell they’re related??  She was a perfect little model for me!  Roman on the other hand was a little busy, as little boys should be…  ;)

Jack

My dear friends Erica and Drew had Jack on January 4th.  They knew while Erica was pregnant that there were complications.  Jack was diagnosed with a moderate to severe left sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia which required surgery shortly after birth. Many babes that are diagnosed with this condition do not survive, so we were all praying like crazy and waiting on pins and needles during his birth and surgery for updates.  These photos were taken when Jack was 4 days old a few hours before his surgery.

Jack has proven be quite the fighter!  His surgery went well and he has been making steady progress and is getting stronger!  He is well on his way to breathing on his own without the assistance from machines.  We are praising God for that.  If you think of it, take a moment to say a prayer for Jack, Drew, and Erica as you look at the photos of this handsome boy :)

Can’t wait to take some family photos of these three after Jack comes home! <3

Kevin & Kelly

Kevin was absolutely dreading this photo shoot.  So, when he asked Kelly and I where he needed to meet us for the shoot… The answer was Community Tapp for a beer (or two) first.  That’s not how I typically start photos shoots but for friends I made an exception – Kelly and I met in Charleston 7 years ago (wow!) and became quick friends.  We’ve kept in touch even though she moved to Greenville a year after we met.  Whenever I need to breathe some mountain air I head up to see her so we can hike (after eating a bagel somewhere, of course).  The moment I met Kevin I felt like I had known him for years.  You can feel the love these two have for each other by looking at the photos!  They can’t stop smiling (and that’s not the beer ;)  I am so excited to celebrate with these two in April!

Our first stop was Horizon Records in Greenville.  I was looking forward to doing the shoot in this unique spot!KevinKelly_SM-1KevinKelly_SM-3KevinKelly_SM-4KevinKelly_SM-5KevinKelly_SM-6Next, to the park because I love shooting out in natural light!KevinKelly_SM-7KevinKelly_SM-8KevinKelly_SM-9KevinKelly_SM-10KevinKelly_SM-11KevinKelly_SM-12We couldn’t resist capturing a moment with this couple who were on their own engagement shoot…KevinKelly_SM-13KevinKelly_SM-14KevinKelly_SM-16KevinKelly_SM-17

2015 Year in Review

At the end of each December I try to take some time to look back at the year and remember all of the projects and photo sessions I got to work on.  I’m grateful that I’ve been able to run my business for over three years now which allows me to have some faithful repeat clients.  One of my favorite things is building these relationships and watching the kiddos grow up before my eyes!  So, you’ll see some familiar faces below.  And lots of new ones too!

Some of my 2015 highlights!…
I was able to attend a photo conference in May at the home of Zach and Jody Gray, wedding photographers in Nashville.  I can’t even tell you how much that two day workshop helped my photography.  Zach and Jody were so great and taught us all of their juicy photo secrets!

In September I was able to travel out west (for the first time!) with some  friends from Charleston.  We stayed outside of Denver and I’ll never forget hiking Rocky Mountain National Park.

December was the highlight of my year when I got to meet my niece, Nora.  It’s amazing how the hours can pass so quickly when you’re just staring at a little newborn!  She will grow tired of her auntie always wanting to take photos of her :)  So thankful God placed her in our family.

Bacon Family

Shooting under the oak trees at the battery results in one of my favorite shots, especially in black and white.  Little Miss Paisley was such a ham, as you can see, and made this session so fun!Bacon-1Bacon-2Bacon-3Bacon-4Bacon-5Bacon-6Bacon-7Bacon-8Bacon-11Bacon-12Bacon-13Bacon-14Bacon-17Bacon-18Bacon-19Bacon-20

Roman is TWO!

I photographed Roman last fall when he turned one and can’t believe how grown up he looks now for his second birthday!  You can see he’s been working on his poses and hamming it up for the camera!  Loved photographing this fun family on a foggy morning at the Daniel Island Pier.Roman-1
