Not leaving the house is hard , but taking self portraits is way harder in my opinion. I loved the setup that I had for Hannah and I had to copy it for myself. The shots that I did with Louie were quite difficult; but then again, he is a difficult kitty sometimes anyway.
I hope you all are staying safe and healthy out there!
My mom and I took a girls trip to NYC to celebrate graduation and my birthday. I know, it's March. BUT this was the first time that the both of us could get away. We stayed almost on Broadway and walked literally everywhere.
We did a lot of the artsy tourist things and of course went to Tiffany's and the color factory (post on that next week!). The only thing that we couldn't do was see Beetlejuice on Broadway because they closed it a couple of hours before our show.
I want to go back and if you have any suggestions of places to hit next time, let me know!!! But for now, enjoy some photos (creds to mom for photo of me <3)
I would like to take this week's blog post to give a shout out to my adorable chef of a boyfriend. Somehow, I have convinced him to keep me for a whole year as of last week. He is a food science major at Clemson University and is one of the best cooks ever. He is also one of the sweetest men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I mean, come on, he provides snacks at most times of the day!
Here are two photos that I have taken on my film camera of my weirdo.
For the past year, I have had the incredible experience of working with Sposa Bella Photography based in Greenville, SC. The owners, Craig and Lindsey, are two of the most amazing people and photographers that I have ever met. My job is to assist on wedding days and second shoot if need be. I could not love this job more and I am very excited to continue working with them.
Time to share some wedding photos that I have taken! <3
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
