Emily and Mark

A couple of weeks ago I met up with Emily and Mark for their E-Session out in Pauline. That's right, I said Pauline. It's just the cutest area with farmland for miles out near Spartanburg. I loved it. I instantly wanted to relax as soon as I got there. It's just a laid back area. We met at Mark's parent's house and did the shoot on their property. We had everything from the split rail fence to the red barn. Does it get any better? Now I realize I've gone on and on about Pauline, but Emily and Mark were just as laid back as the area and we had no problem getting things rolling in front of the camera. Thanks guys!

Oh, and this post just wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention Steve (Mark's black cat) and Molly (Mark's golden retriever). Both were fabulous subjects and gave us great entertainment during the shoot. :)

Shay at 6 months

I really don't think babies get any cutier than this little one. I've been photographing Shay since he was a newborn and it has been so wonderful watching him grow and develop. He is definitely a mover and a shaker at this point. I had to be so quick to catch those cute smiles and laughs.

I can't wait for the next update. Now enjoy some images.

Leanne + Chad E-Session (more fun than they thought)

I met up with Leanne and Chad last week in downtown G-Vegas for their shoot. They had requested a classic downtown shoot so we hit up all the spots that got my career started. That was a funny sentence to type, but it's true. :) Anyway, we hit the pavilion, the famous rooted tree, and the coca cola sign. I should also mention that these two were dressed to impress. I walked up and Leanne was in this uber fabulous yellow sundress that I so envy. It was so beautiful. And let's not forget our handsome groom in a seersucker suit! Little does he know, but he just beefed up my portfolio. hee hee

Well, I just had the best time with these two. As the shoot was ending they said, "well this was a lot more fun than we thought it would be." LOL I thought that was so great. You know I'm sure it's super weird to all of a sudden be thrown in front of a camera with someone you barely know. They said they were just a little nervous, but I put them at ease and they had a great time. :) I honestly can't think of a better compliment from my clients. I hope that is always the case...that they always have more fun than they thought they would.

Thanks you two and I can't wait for your big day. :)

Rachelle and Sean E-Session

Rachelle and I hit it off right away when we met for the first time last year. I mean seriously, she's a complete "knock out"! Aside from her fabulous looks, she is just the sweetest, coolest girl and I've had a blast getting to know her. :)

So about these two. I met up with them a couple weeks ago and we realized right away that this session was going to be different. There was terrible weather outside, but it was seriously my last free Saturday until the end of June and I certainly didn't want them not to have an engagement session just because of my crazy schedule. So we opted to do the session all indoors. We hit the Poinsett Hotel and a parking garage near by. When I got home and brought the images up on the computer I was so pleasantly surprised.

Oh and before I forget, the green dress that Rachelle is wearing was her grandmothers. I think that is so incredibly special. She looks absolutely amazing in it and she didn't even have to have it altered. I think I could probably only get my thigh in that waistline. LOL So without further adieu here are some images from their session.
