I have been waiting for this post all WEEK!!! I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to share a blog post. My sweet mom has decided to guest blog today to share “Ways to Support Your Young Entrepreneur”. I received an email this week from the mom of one of my course students who […]

AH – the first engagement session of 2018!!! YAY!! I had the chance to meet Lauren and Riley for coffee late last year and we immediately hit it off. We talked about our mutual love for Charleston and her passion for being a labor and delivery nurse. It was such a fun little coffee date!!! […]

I hope you all are having a fantastic start to 2018! I know this time of year can feel overwhelming and daunting. We set goals, have BIG dreams and then scroll through Instagram and begin feeling inadequate. Maybe it’s just me!? I so quickly compare myself to what others are doing, how quickly they are […]

I can’t believe it’s this time of year again!!! Each year, I spend time selecting the BEST images in three different categories: seniors, engagements and weddings. It’s a long and tedious process, but it is always SO rewarding to look back at some of my favorite work from an entire year. Up first I’m sharing […]

This is my LAST wedding of 2017!!! WHAT!? How does time fly so quickly? I can’t BELIEVE it. But, if I had to choose a wedding to end out 2017 on the BEST note, it would’ve been Annie and Paul’s! I absolutely love Shadow Creek (and I photographed my last wedding of 2016 here, too!) and […]
