I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend filled with family and friends!
Over Thanksgiving weekend my husband and I traveled to my hometown in Maryland to celebrate the holidays with my family. We had a great (and busy) week of spending time with relatives and sleeping in. During that week I had the opportunity to photograph this super sweet couple and their two handsome pups! The fall colors were perfect and we even had a chance to sneak in some Washington State University crimson as we explored the Potomac Regional Park in Arlington, Virginia.
Every year I get to photograph this insanely awesome couple for their wedding anniversary. Amanda and Marcus are fantastic and fun to be around and don't mind venturing out every year to find a new and different location from the last! This year we headed to Conestee Park in Mauldin, South Carolina to take advantage of the fall colors, lake view, and beautiful atmosphere. As always, we made sure to capture a few photos for Christmas cards..another annual mini-session tradition with them! Check out their beautiful fall and Christmas photos below!
The other day I had the pleasure to photograph this little newborn beauty! Don't let the photos fool you, she was being a bit of a pickle with her fusses but dad was patient enough to lull her back to sleep. At exactly a week old, she couldn't be more precious!
This is seriously one awesome family. I first met the Gary's when Valerie contacted me about photographing her oldest daughter's senior photos. During our senior session with Madison, Valerie told me how much she wanted some beautiful outdoor portraits of the entire family together. We got together a month after their first session to take these amazing portraits at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. Check out some of their fantastic photos from the session below!
Fall is in the air and everywhere you go is just blessed with perfect autumn weather. We had a great senior session for Kyle at Furman University and took full advantage of the changing leaves to give us such a beautiful setting. From the front of the campus all the way to the lake we had some fantastic photos of Kyle and his sweet girlfriend, as well as showing off his awesome tennis jacket. To wrap up the whole session, we had a beautiful sunset over the water. Take a look below!
Madison's senior photos at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina were just gorgeous. The ruddy maroon colors paired with the autumn season and greenery look so pretty. We had a nice session and a few outfit changes and knocked these photos out of the park! To see more of Madison (and her family) head on over to the Gary family photo session blog post!
Little Miss Synova was born a month early as preemie, but that doesn't stop her from having a beautiful newborn session. Mom hand crocheted her adorable little dress and hat with crystal accents for an extra special touch to our session. We had a great time as this little one slept through most of the session. Check out how darling she looks!
A few days ago I was so excited to meet little Carlee, named after her grandfathers, who was barely a week old. This teenie-tiny little one put up a bit of a fight in the beginning but calmed down enough for us to get some great photographs for her parents to treasure. Just look at her beautiful eyes and her adorable little hands and feet!
This past week I was lucky enough to photograph little Clementine. She's such a sweet newborn with two awesome (and incredibly sleepy) parents. I was so excited when Caroline contacted me to do this session for her newborn..I mean how could I say no to another Caroline? I knew our same-name encounter meant that this was going to be a fabulous session. Clementine's room was picture perfect and ready to go thanks to Caroline's savvy decorating skills. We had a wonderful session photographing content little Clementine with her assortment of hair bands blankets. Caroline even shared with me that she had purchased the same little bear online that she had received when she was a baby, making the photographs with the new and well-loved bears an absolute treasure!
I'm so excited to finally be able to post these newborn photos from my most recent session. I'd like to introduce sleepy little Liam; only a week old and the first little guy to his wonderful mom and dad. Sarah, Liam's mom, is a friend from college and a such a fantastic person. She's also a talented wedding photographer and we were lucky enough to use some of her suitcase props for our session! Liam didn't have to do much work though, even though he looks tuckered out. He slept the entire time, bundled up and toasty with the occasional feet sticking out from under him!
