We had a kind of impromptu photoshoot with one of my favorite models, Kelsey Toole. I saw another photo of a girl with striking eyes and glitter on her face, so I decided that I wanted to throw glitter on someone with beautiful eyeballs. Obviously, Kelsey came to mind! I strolled on over to the dollar store and bought spider webs in a bag and two black poster boards. After making a little box with my boards and taking a few pictures, we strung up the webs and BOOM. Enjoy the photos. I even think the non-webbed photos would work for Christmas, so I will post more then!
This is Jake Stokes. He is a smarty guitar player who will rocks your world upon meeting you. I have known him since high school and I have loved seeing him become the man that he is today. Stokes, you are amazeballs and you should keep doing you.
After each one of these people (and more) sent me these kinds of photos and videos of these on facebook, I had to do it. We sat down and carved four pumpkins and a pineapple (which didn't really work as well as we thought) and then rushed to take these before the Chronicle meeting that 3/4 of us needed to attend. The whole thing took about $10 and two hours to accomplish. So if you need a cheap and fun shot, I suggest it!
This last semester of school is kicking my butt, so please enjoy some behind the scene photos from the flour shoot! I have three shoots coming up next week, so be on the lookout for some sneak peeks of those over on my instagram!
My football game shooting friend, Caleb, wanted to learn some tips on taking portraits. He is a great sports photographer, but wants some experience in working with less sporty things. I suggested that we go out to the South Carolina Botanical Gardens with Madi and Colby (an adorable couple of which I love dearly). Madi knows how to pose and Colby does not, so it made for a great experience with two ends of the spectrum in terms of the kinds of people you could be photographing. I was too excited to share these with everyone, and now I get to share with you! Enjoy!
Since my heifer from last semester is due to calf in November, I have been assigned to a new heifer. Her name is El and she is beautiful. I know that you probably don't read my blog for cows, but who doesn't love a cow picture every now and then?? Wish us luck at the Anderson Show!
I had an idea the other day. . . I thought about all of the times that I have thrown paint at some people, but I have never thrown something that wasn't a liquid. So, I went out and bought 25 pounds of flour and a dress from salvation army. Surprisingly, this whole thing cost $10. It took four of us to accomplish, but it was worth it. Do you have any other ideas of what I can throw at more models???
This gorgeous girl is Mallory. Her and my mom are pretty much best friends and we have been dying to get together for a shoot! It finally happened. . . after four locations and some rain and thunder and lightning. We were on our way to Happy Berry Farm in Six Mile when it began to look really dark and rainy in front of us. There were lots of pretty places we passed on the way there, so we decided to hit those on the way back to the house.
It worked out very well and I think the hay bales were the best location for what we wanted to do.

I did not think that I would miss the hectic and loud stadium on game days, but it turns out, I really missed it. Here's to another great season for the Clemson Tigers!
As a Clemson University photographer, I get the opportunity to follow our school's president, Dr. Clements. He is such a genuine man and I can see why not only the students, but the entire town, love him.
This time, I photographed him meeting some of the new students at the Welcome Back Festival, and guess who I ran into? My little brother, his roomie, and his friend! I am so excited that Jon is here at Clemson studying business because I get to see him around and photograph him whenever I want!
