This weekend was just what I needed. A weekend full of friends and family. Riding along backroads laughing and singing to music. Cookouts underneath the trees. Celebrating our mothers for Mother’s Day. Even Cody giving me flowers from the pups! This past Thursday, my dad was admitted to the hospital for kidney failure. With everything […]

A View From Home

It’s Sunday morning. The house is quiet. Finally. You head to the laundry room, getting ready to fold one of the multiple loads you do every single day. You have a newborn who spits up, or a toddler who’s played really hard outside all week. As you fold laundry, you notice the dishes piled up. […]

Charleston Wedding in South Carolina

What do you think about when you hear the saying field day? For me, I revert back to my elementary school days! My teachers all got together with other grades and they would just have a enjoyable day outdoors with us. I can remember the warm air against my cheeks as we did team races. Playing […]

Fun things to do with your family

With all the craziness that has been going on. I caught myself feeling anxious, worried and just speechless. The thought of being “stuck” at home just consumed me. I would just think, this can’t be real. There has to be something better. I decided to take a step back off social media. Knowing this was […]

Five Wedding Tips

One of the coolest parts about being wedding photographers is getting to know and love the couples I photograph, and stay in touch with them long after their wedding. So when Calli and Lucas reached out to tell me they were expecting their first baby, I couldn’t stop smiling!
