baby makes 4 | Spartanburg, SC Newborn Photographer | Greenville, SC Newborn Photographer

The day after I took Nathalie’s maternity photos I received an email that she thought in the next few hours they’d be welcoming baby #2 into the world.. sure enough, their little BOY arrived!!!  Baby “A” made his debut a little early but he was safe & healthy!! Nathalie contacted me and that Saturday I headed over to their house for a newborn session.  It was so much fun hanging out with their family two Saturday’s in a row and such an honor to meet & photograph their littlest!!!  Miss “E” came down with something and after being amazing and taking a few family photos she passed out for the remainder of the session :(.  I will say though that she is one proud big sis and loves her little brother a whole lot!!!!!!!  I spent most of the session with Nathalie & Alex loving on their little boy & I just stepped back and documented it all.  I love that my newborn sessions are just me coming into the families home and stepping back and photographing this love that the new parents have for this new baby.  I love being able to photograph a swaddled baby on a ginormous bed and capturing how small they are… I love everything about the way a growing family interacts and loves and that I am lucky enough to just sit back and document it all!!!  Nathalie & Alex, thank you for wanting me to photograph & document your family memories for y’all!!! I have loved getting to know all four of you & can’t wait to watch your sweet family grow up & know y’all better!!!  Thank you for two fabulous Saturday mornings :) that felt more like we were just hanging out than taking photos (y’all may feel differently since y’all were the ones in front of the camera ;) )!!!  Here are a few (and I say that jokingly because I know there are more than a few images… but I seriously couldn’t narrow them down any further!!)…

baby # 2 on the way | Spartanburg, SC Maternity Photographer | Greenville, SC Photographer

I first met Alex, Nathalie & little miss “E” last fall when we took their family photos/announcement photos for baby #2!!  These three are so sweet and I LOVED spending a little more time with them on a VERY HUMID, TEAXS, MAY, SATURDAY MORNING :) to capture Nathalie’s maternity photos for baby #2.  Miss “E” took a few minutes to open up but by the time we headed to the play ground she was all smiles for the camera.  Alex & Nathalie, I had so much fun with you guys for y’alls maternity session, I’m soo sad that we moved to SC because I really have enjoyed getting to know y’all and if we were still there I know there would be lots of play dates with our girls (I’m amazed at how similar the two of them are I know they would really like each other and have so much fun) and probably even just some mommy dates as well :)!!! Thank y’all for letting me into your lives I have loved photograph your beautiful & growing family!!!  Here are a few images from their family maternity session!!!

Cara & Brad tie the knot | Greenville SC Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg SC Wedding Photographer

I have known Cara for quite a few years now.  When Gary & I were working with the youth at our Church in Texas I had the privilege of having Cara in my girls small group and having the chance to really get to know her and I loved it and her and now our friendship!!  I got to know her even more when in 2011 we headed to Peru for 10 days for a missions trip.  Over the years I’ve known her we’ve talked about our dreams… and one of those dreams for her was to get married, we’ve prayed for her dreams and for her future and for her future husband… after coming back from Peru Cara met Brad… and I guess you can say the rest is history ;).  On a BEAUTIFUL, Saturday, Texas afternoon back in May Cara & Brad said “I do” in front of their dearest friends in family in an intimate ceremony and reception in Brad’s parents back yard.  Everything was beautiful and simple and just the way these two wanted it… the entire afternoon it was all about them and their love for one another and their future together.  It was an absolute pleasure & honor to photograph these two on their wedding day!! Thank y’all for wanting me to be part of this special day!!!!

As you’ve seen in some of the images above… Cara LOVES to laugh and smile… it’s one of the things I love so much about her.  She is always laughing, and loving life, and just being her… looks like she inherited that laugh and smile from her sweet mom & dad!!! :) :) :)

Happy 2nd Birthday Kenzie!!!! | Spartanburg, SC Child Photographer

There are moments where I just want time to freeze and keep you just as you are in that moment, at that time… but that’s never going to happen… the days have flown by and it seems like it was just yesterday that we were welcoming you into the world, then celebrating your 1st birthday, and now we’re celebrating another amazing year of you!!!  Kenzie, you are such a gift & I love being your mommy more and more every day.  This past year you did a lot… there was close to a month of traveling the east coast visiting family & friends, first steps, first words, trips to the zoo & to get ice cream, stealing our sweet tea when we aren’t looking, moving halfway across the country, you were a flower girl, you flew, you are developing into this little girl that just shines and loves with her whole heart!!  You have both a BIG and quiet personality and I love it… you are shy but demand attention :)… you are independent but yet want me there at every second of the day and when you want to be held it is right that instance or your whole world crumbles…. you love to read & be read to, you love to dance and sing and be silly, you LOVE your daisy!!!  I’m not sure how we got so lucky but we did and every day I thank God for you and your love and allowing me to be your mommy!! Kenzie, I love you my sweet girl and am excited to celebrate you today as you turn 2 years old!!!!

Here are a few throwback photos :) from the past year!!

23 Months | Spartanburg, SC Children’s Photographer

I can’t believe you’re less than one month shy of 2 years old!!!  I snapped these photos a few days late (… actually more like a week after she turned 23 months… but hey we’re moving and it’s crazy so I’m going to just blame that!!) and she wasn’t really feeling having her photo taken on this particular morning!!  But here are a few of the images I was able to get to capture her at 23 months old!!
