Sunflowers for days

I know God puts certain people in your life that can impact you in ways you never imagined.  This beautiful Mama here is an excellent example of that.  Who would have thought that her winning a Mini-Session Giveaway last year would end up making her someone I cherish speaking and exchanging Mom-stories with.

I value her opinion, I love her kiddos, her family is the absolute sweetest, and she has a heart of gold.

What better way to celebrate her than with a Mommy+Me session amongst the sunflowers.

A Girl's Best Friends

I have the most amazing friends!  I can call them on a whim with just an idea in my mind and they will dress their kiddos up, hike them out to whatever new location I'm at and help my ideas come to life. 

Truly, they are all so fantastic. 

This cutie-pie woke up from her nap just to test lighting at the sunflower field for me.  I honestly couldn't be more grateful for the friends God has placed in my life.  And not just because of their willingness to take photos but because of how amazing each of them are.

SunFlowers!

I've been longing to shoot a session in a sunflower field this Summer and today I had the most gracious family agree to change up their original plans and meet me to do just that!  And even despite the heat of the Summer, I am loving these photos - the sweat and the drive paid off!!!  Best yet, her Grandma and Grandpa were able to make it for the fun too :)

Senior Session

I'm sitting here thinking, "There is no way this beautiful young lady is going to be a SENIOR in high school this year?!"  Where did the little girl that I first met go?  Even if we are in shock, we are so proud of her and her accomplishments. 

Back-to-School Mini Sessions!

I can't believe that it is already July and school starts backnext month.  Didn't the school year JUST end?! 

Even though we are wishing for Summer to last longer, don't miss out on the Back-to-School Mini Sessions July 29 and August 5. 

Take a look at my Facebook and Instagram pages for a chance to win a FREE mini session :)

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.
