Shop Local, Shop Small 2022

Newborn Sessions

November 04, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I used to love doing newborn sessions in client's homes and I also took newborn photos at our local hospital. I've always enjoyed documenting this very special time in a family's life. Once Covid came around, booking these sessions slowed down drastically and the hospital photos came to an end (understandably).  I'm ready to get back to booking newborn sessions!

I mainly do newborn sessions in the family's home. Everyone is comfortable and no travel is necessary. It's also a lot easier to take feeding breaks or do outfit changes in your own home. The nursery is a great place to take some of the photos to capture that special time. Although the new baby is the star of the show, I also include mom & dad and siblings if possible. I've even done some with pets too!  

If you're expecting or know a mom to be, reach out to book your session or purchase a gift certificate.

Milestone Package

October 14, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

I loved, loved this project and was looking through some images and came across it so I thought it was a good time to share it again! My cousin asked me to do a special photography project with her and it was SO MUCH FUN! Her idea was to hire me to do a monthly mini session of the first year of her daughter's life. She would not only document her first year, but also planned to create a collage with the photos. Her plan was to use small photos around the border and use a large one year photo in the center showing off baby's year one.

We had so much fun planning each month and coming up with different ideas. We did a lot of seasonal sessions and she was always prepared with ALL the props and outfits. She used Pinterest a lot and we did our best to recreate some of her favorites. Some were a success and some were not...which gave us lots of laugh! We had cat bomb photos, crying, squirming, feeding and diaper breaks, and some overall Pinterest fails. I loved being able to use my creativity, practice in different lighting situations, and learn more about photographing a baby. When her second daughter came along we started it up again with her. Unfortunately I moved away during her first year, so we were able to use some of the sessions I did but mom had to supplement with some of her own. Both collages came out fantastic and mom & dad had them printed on canvas to hang in their home. Not only do they have the photos to cherish for years, they also have the memories of each special photo session. 

Starting now through 2023 I am offering a very special Milestone Package. Instead of monthly like I with this project, I offer several mini sessions.

This includes newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and one year.  $600

Sessions include an on line gallery with digital download. Additional sessions may be purchased at an additional cost.  Prints and products also may be purchased.  

Pre-purchase as a gift for mom-to-be is available.

2022 Bingo for Breast Cancer

October 05, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

On September 29, 2022 Greenville Women's League held their 18th annual breast cancer fundraiser. I've been a GWL member and volunteer since 2016 and this is one of my favorite events of the year. Our members work year round to collect donations, secure sponsorships, and plan, plan, plan to make this a wonderful, meaningful event for our community and breast cancer survivors. We definitely could not do it without the support of all the local business that sponsor and donate raffle items for this event.  This year we had some of the best raffle packages yet! 

I love seeing groups of friends and family gather together for a girls' night out for a great cause. We even have a few men in attendance. Everyone enjoys a dinner + drinks, bingo games, perusing raffle packages, and taking photos. It truly is heartwarming to see everyone come together to support this important cause. All funds raised stay right here in our community helping local breast cancer patients going through treatment. 

Most of our lives have been affected by breast cancer in some way. My mom and mother in law are breast cancer survivors! My grandmother had breast cancer too. Volunteering at and photographing Bingo for Breast Cancer is one way I can give back and show my support. 

Save the date for next year, 9/28/23!!!
