Karen {Greenville, SC portrait photographer}

Meet Karen. We got to church together, and she heard about my free sessions through a mutual friend. I had a ton of fun with our session. It stopped raining about two minutes before she showed up (and still sprinkled here and there throughout the session) and so the cloudy sky made for beautiful portraits. I also really loved her bright blue dress and how it really popped amongst all the greenery and rocks at the Rock Quarry Garden!

So pretty! And totally rocking those short curls!

Love that adorable flower in her hair! And doesn't her dress look gorgeous against the rocks?

Didn't I tell you? Shoes off and walking through the creek! Karen didn't want pictures of her feet, but I think she'll forgive me for this one. Super fun :)

Love this one. Classy!

Thanks, Karen, for helping me grow my portfolio! I had a ton of fun at our session! :)

And, really, by 'John & Veronica' I mean 'Mom & Dad.' Yep, meet my parents. My utterly adorable and hopelessly in love parents. My Daddy, being the wonderful daddy that he is, insisted on being my first paying client. My parents recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary (wow!) and wanted some photos to commemorate the event. But they didn't want to studio photos. They wanted something real and natural--which is what I like best! We had a lot of fun walking around Falls Park, and I got some great photos that really show off their personalities. I hope you like them!

Sometimes, my dad has trouble showing off a genuine smile. So, we got this photo because I said, 'Hey Mom! Hurt Dad because that'll make him laugh!' So she stabbed him with her sharp fingernails. And look--it worked! (It should be noted that I would not encourage just any couple to physical abuse. I just know these two really well.)

This is so my parents. My dad is always flirting with my mom while she's playing hard to get. Don't pretend like you don't just love it, Mom!

While trying to get this shot, I was insisting to that Mom let Dad give her a good smackeroo. And right after I snapped this shot, a guy walked by and said, 'That was really cute.' Maybe he was thinking of his own parents, I don't know. I know for a lot of people, they're parents kissing is gross, but I think it's cute. I hope I'm just as much in love when I've been married for 30 years! Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

How cute are these two kiddos? I know their parents from, you guessed it, my lindy hop other life. How absolutely adorable are these kiddos? Unfortunately, the morning of our session it was RAINING! Can you see the raindrops behind them? The rain was supposed to clear up, but the whole time I was photographing, it never really did. I had one hand holding up my umbrella and one hand holding my camera half the time and then we found refuge in the Wyche Pavillion. We had a lot of fun–and have the photographs to prove it!

This sweetie is definitely one of my favorite subjects thus far. So cute!

He was splashing the water like that before I got to get a good picture, so I had him do it again. I love how it turned out.

Both you and I know that it doesn't get much cuter than this! There was no mom and/or photographer posing here. It was all that little girls doing!

What a fun session! Thanks, Ansley, for letting me photograph you gorgeous kids!

Adelaide {Greenville, SC children’s photographer}

About a year and a half ago, my friend Deidre adopted the sweetest little girl and named her Adelaide. About ten days ago, I had the privilege of doing a session with these two. Our location was Linky Stone Park, a whimsical little children's park in downtown. It was so much fun and Adelaide was absolutely adorable!

What a cutie!

There were little bears and Adelaide decided she wanted to take a ride!
