This gorgeous couple has been dating for 2.5 years, and I love them. Not only did we attend the same high school, but now they attend Clemson University (good choice)! I've never shot in the snow and thank goodness that these two were up for a chilly adventure because now I want more snow to take pictures in!!!
Abby and Alex are one of the most fun couples that I have ever had the chance to work with. Not only do they dance, but they do the "drunk walk" perfectly! Abby is soon on her way to college and I cannot wait to see where life takes her and her sweet boyfriend. Honestly, these guys are goals.
There's nothing like a couple session just before a big storm! <3
Wondering what to wear to your next photography session? Here are three tips to get you started!
1. Avoid small patterns - patterns show up funny on camera and can distract from the moment that the photographer is capturing
2. Layers! - gives your hands something to play with and can help create movement in your images!
3. Try not to be "matchy matchy" with your significant other - unless you want a 90s themed look, just try to color coordinate and not 100% match

Ladies and Gentlemen, you've seen them separately, but be prepared to see them together! These two have been dating for roughly four years and I have the pleasure of being Matthew's roommate. All of us went to high school together and I have loved watching them grow and discover so many things with each other.
Anjali goes to Brown, so there are very few chances for her to be here with us to do a shoot. But hot dang we did it!
I had the pleasure to work with Grace Adams, an Augusta blogger, over the Christmas break. I actually went to pre-school with Grace and when we asked Instagram what we should do next, her idea wowed us. The makeup artist was Karrie Lykins and I cannot believe the look that we came up with and she created!
These were shot in my dining room with mom's ring light as our main source. Thank goodness for black dining room walls, am I right? Maybe I should be doing fashion photography for a living? lol

I have been dabbling in film photography for a hot minute now. In high school I developed some film, but never really touched it after that. Now, about a year ago, I found an old (working!) Minolta film camera and I have been slowly learning how to use film. It is a little more expensive and no one gives you back negatives unless you send the film off for developing, but it is loads of fun. I like that you don't get to see the photo that you took until you get them back. It makes me remember memories that I had forgotten about because I have to constantly remind myself to take the film in. I take it to Walgreens by the way (it's pretty cheap and good quality and speed). Also, I love using disposable cameras when I am on family adventures and don't need all of the options that come with a real camera!
Let me know if you have film questions or want to see more of my film work!
Today I graduated from Clemson University with a BS in Biology in two and a half years. I have had a surprisingly great time here at Clemson, and I am hoping to continue my education here in Plant and Environmental Sciences. However, it is now time for a gap semester because apparently, I did not plan too well for after college if my first plan did not work. So in the mean time, I am going to keep doing my photographer thing and find a job (hopefully) with some relation to plants or art (maybe both!). Wish me luck!

My roommate, Beymer, has a dog. She turns one year old very soon. We decided to do a Christmas mini session. Here is something to brighten up your Monday.
