New Town, New School, New Headshots

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."

-J.R.R. Tolkien

Well we've moved again! I'm so often reminded that the only constant in life is change. Every time I start to get comfortable, life finds another way of stretching me, of forcing me to grow. I'm challenged, overwhelmed, and grateful for this crazy life I get to lead. A new school means new obstacles, new students, and new head shots for P's school website! I'm glad I got to take some shots of my favorite person, and I'm looking forward to this chapter of our lives together.

Family Shoot - Charlestowne Landing

I am so in love with how this shoot turned out! This sweet family decided to get family photos done while on vacation in Charleston, and it was such a pleasure to spend this time with them. We enjoyed the Avenue of Oaks and had the place almost entirely to ourselves. The affection the Wood family had for each other was such a blessing to me, I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as I did! 

Emily - Graduation

For we live by faith, not by sight.
- 2 Corinthians 5:7

I had such a great time meeting this sweet family! Emily is a beautiful spirit - she brought so many personal touches to her shoot, from her sweet Southern monogram to a custom sign from her grandfather's. Congratulations Emily!

Doni + Brandan

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

My smart and beautiful cousin got married! I was blessed to be a part of the wedding party, so I didn't grab anything of the wedding itself, but I hope you enjoy my favorite snaps from the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner! The wedding was held in the historic Boyce Chapel in downtown Columbia, an absolutely beautiful location. The wedding was gorgeous, the bride was lovely, and the day went off without a hitch! Congrats Doni and Brandan! 

Annie Laurie - Graduation

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 

-Jeremiah 29:11

This family holds such a special place in my heart. It was an absolute joy to photograph Annie Laurie's senior photos. I can't believe this smart, talented, hilarious girl is graduating high school already! Congratulations! 

Jeannie + Brad

"Love is friendship set on fire."
- Ann Landers
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of Jeannie and Brad's special day. When I first met them, I was really struck by their friendship: their mutual understanding, loyalty, confidence, and love really shone through. This is a couple that won't let anything get them down, not even a hurricane on their wedding day! 

50 and Fabulous!

"We believe in celebrations, both big and small."
-Kate Spade

I'm so excited to share some moments from my mother's 50th birthday celebration. Coffee and dessert were the tastes of the day, and we had no shortage of friends. I hope she was surprised! 

Elissa + Jake

"I love you."

"I know."

It's not every day that you get to watch your little brother marry the love of his life. The wedding was a perfect reflection of their personalities and I couldn't be more happy for them as they begin their lives. Congrats you two!

Bridal Portraits-Elissa

So happy to be able to share these bridal portraits of my now sister-in-law, Elissa! I've had the pleasure of photographing several brides, and they're one of my favorite subjects, but this shoot will always be dear to my heart. Elissa has a beautiful spirit and a compassionate heart. I hope I captured that for her. Shot in Charleston, SC.
