Last week I had an absolute blast hanging out with this lady in her downtown Charleston studio.

Just a hop skip and a jump away from upper King St, Harrison’s studio will greet you with a front door the perfect shade of “Charleston Pink”. The fun doesn’t stop there. All of her paintings are so full of color, beautiful line work, brushstrokes you can’t help but want to reach out a finger to trace.

You can see more of Harrison’s work on her website. You’ll find the link below!

This gem of a human stepped in front of my camera recently for some updated portraits and I could not be more thrilled with what we were able to create for her.

When you meet Alex you feel comfortable right away and her warmth and joyfulness are so contagious. She’s always a voice of encouragement and her brides are in the best hands!

Love cheering this one on! You can find her website here!

Alex, you are such a treasure of a friend! Thank you for trusting me to show your light through these images!

Matt and Rebecca welcomed me into their home in December for their engagement session. When we first spoke on the phone Matt and Rebecca talked about how they really connected with lifestyle type imagery over traditional posed engagement photos. So, that’s exactly what we planned.

On a Sunday afternoon, I met them at their townhouse in Columbia for an intimate photo session which included making some winter updates to their garden. We spent the first part of the session planting onions, harvesting one teeny baby carrot, planting rosemary and an abandoned rose that Rebecca lovingly saved from being thrown away. The rest of the session was spent sipping coffee while listening to music, chatting over some of our favorite books, and taking a quick trip to one of their favorite spots downtown for a handful of posed photos “just in case”. This session might just be a top favorite of all time because of how Matt and Rebecca’s relationship was able to shine through in a comfortable environment.

xoxo,

P.S If you’re looking for a different spin on the traditional engagement session. Or if you’re coming up on a big milestone (a new house or an anniversary for instance) and you’d like to document those big life moments with a session. I would LOVE to chat with you about planning one together. I can tell you from experience, you will not regret the tangible reminder of the emotions you’re experiencing right now in this one life you’re living! Let’s make it happen!!!

You can book your own session here! 

Thanks SO much for stopping by and for following along!

Let’s be honest, Charleston is the place to be if you’re in the mood to be wined and dined.

There are SO many places to choose from and most times you can’t go wrong. But, a favorite so far has been Felix. Possibly one of THE best brunch spots in all of Charleston. Whether you’re looking for creative (and delicious) cocktails (with branded pieces to top them off- all the heart eyes) or one of the most delicious burgers you’ve ever had!

You will absolutely want to add this to your list for your next visit or Sunday brunch!

On a quiet little street on a rainy afternoon is where I met Stephanie and Stephen for the first time. They welcomed me into their sweet little getaway spot for the weekend, and I found myself immediately at home. This sweet couple made their way to Charleston to celebrate another year together in marriage and to quietly, joyfully celebrate the new life that would soon make them a family of three.

“To every thing there is a season” Ecclesiastes 3:1

This verse is the background on my phone, and has been for the past 6 months or so. It’s a reminder that there’s a time for planting, a time for harvesting, a time for drawing in, a time for reflection. To me, spring is a time of refinement, a time for planting good seeds and dreaming big for the seasons ahead…

First, thanks for stopping in! It means so much that you decided to spend a moment of your busy day here with me! I’ll keep it short and sweet for now.

The years leading up to today haven’t been a perfectly smooth path. They’ve been a little twisty with a few bumps in the road and lots of throwing things at the wall until something sticks. I’ve started over more than a few times (who doesn’t love new beginnings?). I’ve been in a season of waiting, in a winter that has felt a little too long for comfort. But spring is here!!! The first day to be exact!!!

So what better time for a fresh start than the first day of Spring? When deciding when to bring this new, refinished brand to life, I couldn’t think of a better time.

Here’s a little of what you can expect going forward…

A little note here and there for those of you who sign up to receive them (you definitely don’t want to miss this), including being the first to know about things like mini sessions and updates.

I can’t wait to share the journey with you!

A HUGE thank you to Bridie of The Little North Sea Studio for her beautiful talent and help to bring this new brand to life!
