R&R Roxanne and Rowan planned a fantastic photo session with me in November. We packed a lot into our afternoon with several outfit changes, different looks and different locations ALL on my property! It was so much fun and a challenge too. We had a studio feel with a white background, a fun, fresh teen backdrop for some GIRL POWER..., outside we enjoyed the marsh and the back deck with the wicker chair and swing. The best part literally came at the beginning of our session. I had asked a florist, Thuy Patterson from Jade Water Designs, to create a gorgeous crown of flowers and vines for Rowan. The result was nothing short of spectacular and Roxanne ordered a 45x30 for her front room. IT IS AMAZING... art all the way! This is wh... VIEW POST
Last Days of Summer
Sep. 24
I so enjoyed my session with Aileen and her family a few weeks ago out on Folly Beach. We met at sunrise and she brought the cutest dresses for the girls to wear. Long and flowy, in a pale pink.

Having the pier in some of their shots I know will be a nice memory of this time in history. Once its down, it's gone forever. Here are a few of the images from our session and I can't wait to design her cards. VIEW POST

I wanted to be like the stars of old who would sing and act and dance and of course looked glamorous even getting out of bed in the morning. For a time in my life I enjoyed being able to perform in the theatre and on film. I was able to model and feel glamorous too. As my life took it's twists and turns, I found my "happy place" was no longer in NYC and on the stage, well at least for a time, I thought. Following my heart, I got married, ra... VIEW POST
Pet Happy Photography Our fur-babies are members of the family — squirmy, energetic, over-eager members of the family that often can’t sit still and turn into a massive blur on camera. Pets make some of the most stunning family photos, but, even though they have wiggled their way into our hearts, they can be a challenge to photograph. When I photograph with a pet, I imagine I am a ninja! A little bit portrait, a little bit sports and a little bit rock at roll! (no seriously, a little bit child photography too. As a portrait photographer (and mom to three dogs and one cat), the toughest family photo shoots I’ve shot involve both a dog and a toddler in the same photo because getting both to sit still at the same exact time borders on impossible. Well, m... VIEW POST
