Here's a few quick recent favs….in case you've not been following my posts on Facebook.

I will be announcing "The Manger" Limited Edition Sessions SOON! Hopefully shooting some sample sessions this week so you guys can get an idea of the setup.

Happy fall!

Fall Portraits in South Carolina

fallportraits Love our part of the state! The leaves will be displaying their golden splendor really soon. I LOVE photographing close to sunset during the fall, but I only have 3 more afternoon spots available in October!!! I do have several more openings for morning sessions.

Seriously, you cannot get these moments back. Don't hesitate to invest in such precious memories.

Call me to reserve one of the last October afternoons. FYI, leaves are normally still very nice the first of November too. Don't miss out!

Fall Portrait Outfits

So you've booked your fall family portraits with me and now you're stressing over what to wear? Take a peek at my fall outfit Pinterest board, click here!

Here's one of my favorites, and it would look great for Christmas cards too! I'd just recommend mom wear leggings so she's comfortable sitting, etc.

Be sure you check out my board for some neutral outfit groupings that are classic and would look great for a portrait hanging in any room of any house!

If you haven't booked your fall portrait session yet, do so SOON!

Beach Portraits at Cherry Grove, S.C.

I'm back! We had a fabulous time at the beach last week…considering. 2 with Strep, 1 with a kidney infection. 3 hours at urgent care. A late night ride to the hospital, in an ambulance, in order to get through the firework traffic. All of which occurred on the 4th of July, my daughter's birthday. Serious.

Those of you who have followed the blog for any length of time know that I'm quite particular about Sadie Mae's birthday parties. Well…this time. I had to let go. I physically could not function. I was one of the two with strep. Sitting in the kitchen on a chair in order to get the cupcakes in the oven because I just felt too bad to stand.

It definitely felt like a "body crash."  Body Crash: "a common occurrence in business owners. The phenomenon of a sudden physical attack on the body, after months of work, occurring at the sign of relaxation, i.e. vacation."

So, my poor mom and sister-in-law who joined us at the beach for relaxation, suddenly found themselves slaves to my "we gotta do it this way" birthday prep commands.

It's all a bit of a blur. I felt better eventually, the day we left to be exact. Perfect, because there was lots of cleaning to do! No way was I going to leave a friend's place with any trace of strep in the house!

There's more to the story…but I digress, and cut to a few of my favorite pics.

Big thanks to my sis-in-law, and in case you didn't know, my regular wedding assistant, who took our family portraits! Can't believe I felt up to it.

Party pics first....a mermaid/pearls affair.  Starfish wands. Mermaid tail and pearl cupcakes.Sharing a party with her bff, her cousin. She's a lucky gal to always have such amazing fireworks on her birthday! A few of my favorite playing at the beach. A couple more "portrait" pics that I adore!
