Clemsongang Beach Trip 2018

This trip is one of my favorites and I’m SO thankful we make it a priority to go each year.  Last year I was super pregnant with Isa and 4 of the girls brought their babies with them!  So, this year, with Isa being the only baby there (since she’s still under 1 and still nursing) it was a lot more quiet :-)  But I didn’t get nearly as many photos as usual.

That’s ok though because sometimes it’s more important to be a part of the memories instead of trying to always document them.

So here’s a recap of our 5th year at Kiawah Island.  Five years in this same spot and we love it!


We usually take a bike ride and it was SO COLD this year that a break inside the grocery store (with a few coffees to go around) was very necessary!

Isa tagged along in the little trailer that Jennifer and Allen brought for us to use.  As you can tell, she LOVED it!

One of our favorite parts about the houses we rent is the view…


Girls, don’t hate me for posting some of these pictures!  It was too much fun playing Left-Center-Right and reverse charades!

I so wish I could remember what each of these words they were acting out ended up being!

And then our yearly picture… it’s always my favorite from the weekend.
This fall will also mark 20 years that we’ve been friends.  I just can’t believe it!

I’m not kidding at all when I say how much I’d love to photograph a wedding at the Oceans Course on Kiawah!
How gorgeous is this view??

Wowing My Clients

I’ve thrown the idea around in my mind about hanging up my camera for a season… my babies are little and I love them to pieces, but they are DRAINING!  But each time the thought comes to mind, I go back to moments like this.

It rained on Jackie and Jason’s wedding day last summer but we still made the most of it…
And I LOVE this photo of them!

So much so that I showed them the back of my camera and this was Jackie’s reaction.

It all comes back to how much I love what I do… and I also love being able to stay home with my kiddos.  And until God leads me down another path, I will be SO excited for each wedding and every birth I have the honor of capturing.

Getting to wow my couples with their images is one of my favorite things.  But I also love spoiling them a little with gifts during their engagement.  Receiving mail is by far one of my most favorite things, so surprising my couples and my birth clients with mail from time to time actually gets me giddy!  These weddings and births are huge milestone events in life and I want my sweet clients to know that I’m celebrating right alongside them.

I’m still booking for late summer and fall of 2018 and for 2019.  Head over to my website at to send me a note. I would love to connect and see if we would be a good fit for each other!

Expecting Baby | Will + Jill | Hotel Domestique

There’s a little spot not far from Greenville that makes you feel as though you’ve actually taken a trip to Europe.  Which was a perfect fit for Will and Jill because they just returned from a trip to Spain… which I called their European Soccer Tour because of the stadiums they visited and the games they went to :-)

But we honestly could have photographed their session anywhere and it still would have been beautiful.  Jill, you are one of the cutest expectant moms!  Your joy radiates through your smile and it still puts a smile on my face to think of what amazing parents you guys will be.

Enjoy some of my favorites!

Jill… stop it.  You are too gorgeous.


I promise they aren’t professional models.

Expecting Baby | David + Marett

The first time we did maternity photos, none of us had any children yet.  But now, I have two little girls and David and Marett are about to welcome their second little boy into the world!

It was literally freezing when we met on the day after New Years but they wanted to go ahead with their session and they trusted me, which is always a huge compliment when conditions may not be ideal.  But oh my goodness, the number of times I squealed at what I was seeing on the back of my camera… you’ll see from these favorites of mine that the cold was worth it!


Jett knows exactly where his baby brother is and was happy to give him some kisses!

A warm blanket on a cold day means LOTS of snuggles.

My Word for 2018

Last year was the first time I had a “word for the year” and I’m so thankful I did because it kept me grounded when things seemed too overwhelming.  Adding a second baby to our family has been one of the most wonderful AND most difficult things for me personally, for running my business, for our marriage… everything.

Don’t get me wrong, we love Isa to pieces and wouldn’t trade these past 11 months for anything!  But when God laid the word “Trust” on my heart last year, He knew that I would need it.

And I actually feel like it’s flowing into this year too.  I wouldn’t have this business without Him, we wouldn’t have our marriage without Him and we definitely wouldn’t have these precious baby girls without Him!  So I’m choosing to continue to trust Him with 2018 just like He asked me to do in 2017.

But with that, comes my word for the new year.  I wasn’t intentionally praying about it or trying to think of what this year would hold, but as I sat in church this morning, I knew without a doubt that God laid the word “Focus” in front of me on purpose.


Welcoming a newborn into our family last February sent my head spinning for several months.  After my 2nd episode of being paralyzed with fear or uncertainty or exhaustion, I finally called my doctor for some medication to help with the postpartum depression and it has been a game changer.

But even with that, my head is still spinning a little bit.  There is too much on my mind and (with an almost 3 year old and an almost 1 year old), there’s not enough time to do all the things.  I’m beyond thankful for my editor who helps with weddings, I’m crazy thankful for my mom who graciously folds any clean laundry that I haven’t gotten to yet, and most of all my husband who is one of my biggest cheerleaders and the best partner girl could ask for.

My relationship with God has been extremely off this past year.  And I realized this morning that I’ve been trying to do too much of it on my own.  I haven’t put things before Him, I haven’t relied on Him for everything and all He wants from me is to focus on Him… the rest will fall into place after that.

I told Ben about this while we were making lunch yesterday afternoon and I realized that when I’d written down the word and some thoughts in my journal at church that it was like a huge weight had been lifted from me.

I’ve known this for ages but I always seem to need reminders.  I can’t do any of this on my own… and neither can you!  We weren’t meant to do it alone and I’m so thankful for that.

So cheers to 2018, focusing on God and what He wants of me rather than all that I can (or can’t) get done during the day :-)
