Engagement Session

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

Family Session

The weather this week has been a little crazy.  Between a lot of rain, gray skies, and muddy grounds, sessions were moved around and rescheduled.  I'm thankful for the few hours that I was able to work and for the many smiles those hours saw.

6 Months Old

Sweet Wyatt won me over today with his blue eyes and sweet smile.  It is easy to see how much he is loved by his adoring parents.

Summer Mini Sessions

Mini Sessions are always a blast because I get to see so many of my wonderful clients all in one day!  Whether it's a family, a young couple, or only kiddos - these sessions are wonderful.

 

Lavender Fields

This was my first year using the lavender fields, and I'm SO glad that I did!  Even though the season is short, the sessions there turn out beautiful - even with rain :)

Summer Mini Sessions

Summer Mini Sessions are kicking off this weekend and next week! I'm excited about both locations and the simple, Summer look I'm going with.

Newborn - Isaiah

With two older brothers, Isaiah will have plenty of help playing in the mud, learning to ride a bike, and enjoying life on their family farm.  Even at a week old you can already see how much he is loved by both of his brothers and how excited his family is to have him home.

Welcome Baby Isaiah!

Andrews Wedding

A June wedding, a beautiful farm, a lovely couple, their handsome son, surrounded by love, unforgettable memories, one amazing Saturday.

1 Year Session

This beauty is a joy to watch grow up.  It really is hard to believe that she's already over a year old now.  Her personality is budding, her smile is beautiful, and I wish I had her energy.

Hanley Wedding

Weddings are always so special.  I love witnessing how each couple makes their Big Day unique.  From a Mother and Father walking their daughter down the aisle, a custom wedding band made from a Bride, or how written words can bring the Groom to tears - it is all so special.

Congratulations Ben & Logan and thank you for allowing not only myself but my family to take part in your special day.

Lollis Wedding!

The rain held off and today was a beautiful day for a wedding - especially for this beautiful couple. 

Their story is that of love and of service to their community.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Lollis!

2 Years Old!

She's a bundle of joy and will keep you on your toes but her smile will melt your heart.  I loved running around, smelling flowers, and watching her draw.

Family Day!

I traveled from Newberry to Columbia and back to Williamston to spend the day with this family.  We celebrated an engagement with their daughter and a first birthday with their grandson.

They sure do love their dogs :)

Sweet Cousins!

When family members live states away, it's always a great time having them come visit.  For these six cousins, it was a fun evening spent hanging out at the park, loving on the sweet baby, and telling some funny secrets :)

Mommy + Me Session

Mother's Day is quickly approaching and I'm so thankful for my own Mother.  She's caring, passionate, beautiful, and such a tremendous help with my son.

So to all you Mothers - Happy Mother's Day!!!!

This session was a special Mommy + Me time where she was able to capture some special moments with her two sons.

Gannom Wedding

"A friend like you is hard to find
A gift that's truly rare,
You held your arms out wide to me
And took up all my cares,

Then carried them along with me
As if they were your own,
You really are the kindest person
I have ever known.

Why was it when I turned around
I saw you stand and stay,
When one by one I watched as all
The others walked away?

Your steadfast faithfulness has surely
Stood the test of time,
And I'm so thankful just to know
A man like you is mine.

So often I have smiled at you and
Sometimes I can see,
The love of Jesus in your face
Smile gently back at me.

If I stayed down upon my knees
From dawn to setting sun,
How could I ever thank the Lord
For everything you've done?

If hearts had words to speak aloud
Of all that they held true,
My heart would shout, "I've found a
Soulmate, husband, friend in you!" "

Surprise!

 A dear friend wanted to surprise her husband with the news that he is soon going to be a daddy.  He was under the impression that they'd won a free photo shoot.

I handed them each a chalkboard and marker and told them to write three things they love about one another.

It was news he was beyond excited to get.  Congratulations Cody and Haley!!

1 Year Old!

I absolutely adore seeing these babies every few months and watching them grow!  Capturing new milestones, birthdays, and seeing their smiling faces is such a rewarding opportunity.

Newborn | Judah

"Here's to you
You were pink or blue
And everything I wanted
Here's to you
Never sleeping through
From midnight till the morning
Had to crawl before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it
You were trying to free your fingers from my hand
'Cause you could it on your own now somehow"

"Slow down
Won't you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it's all too fast
Let's make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down"

"Here's to you
Every missing tooth
Every bedtime story
Here's to Barbie cars, light saber wars
Sleeping in on Sunday
Had to crawl
Before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it
You were teaching me
The only thing love can
Hold hands through it
When it's scary, you've got me"

"Slow down
Won't you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it's all too fast
Let's make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down"

"Please don't roll your eyes at me
I know I'm embarrassing
But someday you'll understand
You'll hold a little hand
Ask them if they can"

"I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can
Somehow
Slow down
Slow down"

3 Months Old

Spring is here and I am so happy about that!  Bring on the bright colors, blue skies, blooms, and green grass.  I could do sessions like these all day - sweet families that laugh, love and smile.  And, of course these adorable themed sessions make me smile - those bunny ears...too cute!
