When the light is perfect and you have a great park like Falls Park to shoot in, you can get some pretty amazing family portraits.  Charlie and the kids tagged along on this downtown Greenville family portrait session (cause we were going to Smoke on the Water after….YUM).  We got to explore the suspended bridge, gorgeous waterfall, and all the scenery around the park as well.  With this fun family I knew their photos were going to turn out amazing!… Read more »


What a cute family and a perfect day for a 1 year cake smash portrait session out at Campbell’s Covered Bridge in Landrum, SC.  The light might have been perfect, but Jeremy wasn’t ready to have his picture made just yet :).  He was a little fussy but we managed to get some really cute shots out of him and his big brother too!

This family is so precious! And this little man… there are no words! I shot Jessica’s sister Leah’s wedding last August and this little man was only a few weeks old. I was so excited when Jessica called for me to take his 6 month pictures! Can’t wait to see this little man continue to grow! #greenvillescfamilyphotographer #familyphotography #greenvillesc #yeahTHATgreenville #southernjewelphotography
