Edisto + Fox Family

We just got back from a quick spring break trip to Edisto! It was beautiful and sunny on Monday and I’m so glad we got there in the afternoon to enjoy the sunshine. Tuesday was rainy and Wednesday was 55 degrees with freezing winds… not a good beach day at all!! However, the side of the house with the sun deck blocked the wind and it was so nice and warm up there! So I got a big bucket of sand and seashells for Mila (and her new friend Selah!) and we all hung out up there! Brandon and Rebekah joined us with their daughter for the week, dear friends of the Richardson family, and we had a wonderful time getting to know them. Brandon spoke on Palm sunday and joined us to lead worship throughout the week at the beach. We packed 20 people in the beach house with our family, the Fox family, Richardsons, Kurigers (youth pastor’s family from Hagood!!:) and band members! Although I desired much better weather (maybe we’ll go to florida next year guys??), the fellowship was just what we needed. Loved every minute!!

Here are some pictures of Mila & 2 quick videos from the beach as well as some photos I took of the Fox’s before they hit the road to drive back to Pennsylvania!

BHS Prom : 2014

I took over 400 pictures of prom couples last night!! OH MY GOODNESS! I just pulled a few favorites to share because there are so many, but also because I didn’t want to wait to share them with you!! Everyone looked so beautiful and I’m so thankful to have been able to photograph these beaming students – so full of excitement!! I hope you all had a blast!!

Anna Grace: Spring Mini Session

SPRING IS HERE!! Anna Grace’s session makes me want to be surrounded by sunshine, gerber daisies and easter eggs. (Mila had her first easter party / easter egg hunt today! I can’t wait to hear all about it!) Anyways, I love doing these mini sessions because sometimes, you just need a FEW new beautiful portraits of your little one. And SOMETIMES… the little ones only have stamina for a few. I only chase and play with a camera in my hand for so long before they start running FROM ME! Anna and I had so much fun and I’m beyond pleased with the final product.

Thank you Christie & Tim for supporting me! Can’t wait to do a family session at the Governors Mansion soon:)

Kylie : One Year

Sweet, precious kylie… where has this year gone? There are days in my own life where a year can feel like a decade and a heartbeat all at the same time. Looking back to your newborn session is no different… and it has been an honor to document you change and grow this year. You are so beautiful and your parents LOVE YOU TO DEATH!!! Blessings on year number TWO and SO MANY MORE!!
