It's been quite a while since we had a new blog, and it is already the start of the new school year. . . I cannot believe that we are actually doing in person classes again at Clemson. Are you a fan of the in person or would you rather be virtual? Personally, I like virtual because I can do it at home with my cat, there's fewer people on campus when I have to go to my day job, and you know, the anxieties. I am happy though for those that haven't had an in person class since the beginning of their college career. Now, they get to have an almost real college experience!
Anyway, congratulations to the August grads and I look forward to meeting you December grads! I am already booking, so if you are looking for a senior photographer, book sooner rather than later. I can't wait to meet you all!
Attention attention everyone! Anjali has graduated from Brown University!
And her mom graduated from Harvard!
Talk about a smart family, Anjali and her family are adorable and I am so happy that I was able to make the trip to Greenwood, SC to capture their brilliance. I have had the chance to photograph Anj before, but I have never met her family and I love them. They are such good people and her little brother is super cool. I am so proud of these two amazing women!
Together since high school, Paige and Ben have finally gotten engaged; and while I wasn't there for the proposal, I was honored to take their engagement photos at the SC Botanical Garden. These two are so cute and fun to be around! Paige and Ben are both graduates of NC State and are both going to get Masters degrees in diet and aerospace engineering respectively (yeah, I know, super smart!). However, this means that they are both moving so far away and that makes me sad. . . but I love and support them and will visit soon!
Katelyn is one of my oldest friends from the middle school years and she has graduated with a degree in education for elementary age kids! She has wanted to be a teacher for what feels like ever and I could not be more proud of her for pulling off her dream gig. From meeting her in middle school art class to taking her senior photos at Clemson, it has been a heck of a ride <3
Okay peeps! I am back to the blogging and its time to highlight my seniors! Lauren and Caityln are two Clemson 2021 graduates and I could not be more proud of either of them. Not only are they gorgeous women (I mean, come on, omg over these photos), but they are both sweet and fun and brought me much joy. I love that Lauren brought a casual second outfit to her session because it brought a different vibe to the session and they are photos that can be great for the more casual photo needs. Caitlyn brought champagne to pop and it was most likely one of the best pops that I have seen recently!
Congrats to you both!
I can't forget about you all! You will all be graduating super soon and a big congrats goes out. I can't wait to hear which colleges and majors you choose; and even if you aren't doing college, I cannot wait to see what career you choose. P.S. to the class of 2022, it's never too early to do your senior session!
I love seeing best friends doing their senior photos together. Tori and Caroline called me asking if I did sessions with best friends included and the answer is OF COURSE! These girls were so fun and I love it when there's a built-in hype buddy at the session. Contact today to book your next favorite set of memories!
It has been such a pleasure to be able to meet all of you graduating seniors and I am so thankful to be able to capture those Clemson memories! I wish you all every ounce of luck that I can send your way. You're off to do amazeballs things. To those of you that are graduating, but haven't done your senior photos yet; it's never too late. My May may be booking up quickly, but I have all summer waiting for you and those August grads. I can't wait to see where you all go in the future!
My little brother is not so little anymore. . .
Jon and his amazing girlfriend, Ervena, are quite adorably in love and I had the honor of photographing them last week. I have never taken photos of my brother before and Ervena has her pictures taken fairly often, so it's safe to say that I was a little nervous about how these would turn out. Our original plan was to take a queen-sized blow-up mattress out to the lake and do some cute floating photos. After blowing up the facebook marketplace mattress, I realized that it was twin-sized. Neither of these two tall people can actually fit on twin and it turned into a Titantic situation. On the plus side, we know that both could have fit on that door (would have been tight, but possible)! So, we had to use the backup plan of cute open field photos and I am SOOOOO happy with how they turned out.
Long story short, everything works out in the end especially when there's always a backup plan in place lol
I don't usually do sessions with babies, but how could I say no to this face???
Little Kinsey recently turned one year old and her mom and I just had to mark the occasion with a session at Brick Pond Park in North Augusta, SC. This feisty little woman LOVES cake, leaves, and her mama and is always picture perfect with bows and frills galore! I am very aware that I am a little too young to be thinking of kids, but I am reaching that age where they are looking cuter and cuter. . .
