Newborn Session

It’s fun when pets are included in photo sessions.  They are part of the family after all!  I love how this pup is protecting his new little human 🙂

Grace’s Newborn Shoot

I met Thomas and Katie YEARS ago through Seacoast church.  I photographed their engagement photos and now get to take photos of their most precious possession – sweet Grace!  I can’t get enough of that face.  She slept through the majority of the shoot so I just kept on clicking!

Andersons

Pups are part of the family too, so why not bring them to your photo session?  Meet Mike, Madison and Primrose 🙂  I love her name AND her under bite!

James & Hallie (& Tucker!)

Tucker was quite the rambunctious pup at our shoot!  He’s just excited that he’s getting a new brother or sister soon 🙂  Enjoyed my time with this sweet family and look forward to the newborn shoot in August!

Margaret Edens

Loving these black and white images of Lash and Mary holding their sweet girl, Margaret Edens.  She’s my birthday buddy, born on April 12th, and was such a good little model baby for me!  Their yellow lab got in on the photo action and expressed her uncertainty over this new addition.  (And protectiveness, too.)

Daniel & Katie (Thor, too!)

It was a perfect night at Folly Beach for a photo shoot with Daniel and Katie.  Their pup, Thor, joined us, too!  He doesn’t even know his world’s about to get rocked when their sweet little girl comes along soon!

2014 Year In Review: Taking a Leap of Faith!

Grateful.

That’s how I’m feeling on this New Year’s Eve.  2014 was the year I took a leap of faith and quit my full time job to invest more time in my photography business.  It has been a lot of work but so worth it and I’ve learned a lot.  My clients are the best!  Here are some photos from the entire year – some are new and some you’ve seen before.

I worked with a  few businesses/organizations and took photos for their websites.

Emily’s family asked me to take head shots for her, she’s an AMAZING dancer!

Here are a few engagement sessions that I did this year.  These are always so funny because if the guys are honest, they are usually super uncomfortable with me taking photos of their PDA’s… but then they realize it’s not so bad 😉Boulware-2 BrownEngagement-1 engagement Harter-1 Harter-2 i Shawn&Heather-2

All of these maternity shoots are with first time parents.  I just love how these mama’s are glowing!  I’m noticing now how popular stripes were…  MurdaughMaternity-1 n RainsMaternity-1 WaggonerMaternity-1

And of course after the maternity shoot comes the newborn and family session!  All of these sweet babes are about a week old.  Such a privilege to be able to take these important photos for clients.Bowers-1 BrownOliver-1 c Garza-1 Guest-3 Liesel-2 Liesel-3 ma Medar-1 Medar-2 mg Murdaugh-1 Murdaugh-2 newborn2 NoahNewborn-1 NoahNewborn-2 o Sullivan-1 Wendell-3

Children have got to be the most challenging but most fun and rewarding part of my photography.  I love capturing their real smiles and getting away from the “CHEESE-Y” ones!
