Southern Girl Chic Boutique | Simpsonville South Carolina

I'm so blessed and excited that I had the opportunity to work with such beautiful ladies, while we shot some of the spring collection for a cute little boutique on Woodruff Rd in Simpsonville South Carolina, "Southern Girl Chic". You can come in grab a glass of bubbly's and shop till you drop.

It was a very windy and cold day. I was impressed with how well they did, especially with Mary & Jane keeping all of that beautiful Rapunzel hair from covering their faces. We had to send in Laurie back inside at one point because her lips started to turn blue, but she was definitely a trooper. Sally King the owner and Jonet Wooten a local blogger were our rocks. Y'all ladies are amazing. 

It was fun thinking outside the box. We walked next door to a smoothie shop and rearranged their tables and chairs a bit, I promise we put it all back. Drove down the street to a building that had beautiful yellow accents which helped the girls outfits stand out so much more and its a Springy color. Is Springy even a word? We ended up jumping out on the road in front of the boutique for a few group shots before the sun set all the way.

Here are some of my favorites!! Comment, Like, Share, and show the ladies some love!!!

Ustimchuk Family | Christmas 2017 | The Barn at Poplar Springs Farm | Moore, SC

4 years ago, Tanya and Vitaliy contacted me for the 1st time for a Christmas photo shoot. I remember I was so excited because they were so sweet, and fun.  At that time they only had Rocky, their sweet little dog. Since then I have had the pleasure of capturing them grow as they added Vitaliy Jr. to their family.

We tried a theme last year, cookies and milk. But Jr. even though he was barely walking, did not want to sit, lay, stand or stay still at all. So this year we decided to skip the props. We had to let him run around a bit and get to know the place, before asking him to do anything.  

Mom and Dad had to do some fun things to make Jr. laugh and smile, because out of all the days Tanya told me, he decided to skip his nap. The sun went down and I pulled out a blanket and little led Christmas lights that I have been dying to use with a toddler. Jr. just celebrated his birthday so he thought that the LED’s were candles, and was trying to blow them out, totally melted my heart. And in the end they all did great, and I got all the shots that I wanted to get.

A huge thanks to “The Barn at Poplar Springs Farm” I love this wedding venue for any kind of shoots, especially families. They have so much to offer, from a newly built beautiful red barn, bridal cabin, gorgeous fields, fences, swing bench, tractors and the views especially at sunset are breathe taking. I can go on forever so I’ll stop here lol. So here are some of my favorites from their photo session. Enjoy!

The Morgans | Christmas 2017 | Greer, South Carolina

I had such a blast with the Morgans while shooting their Christmas session. With all the crazy work schedules we had to take pictures on Sunday morning, and this was the 1st day where it was freezing in SC! By the time we were done, my fingers were all pins and needles. But they were all troopers and didn't let the cold effect the shoot at all. What a special and Godly family the Morgans are, without words they were able to show the love of Christ. Here are a few of my favorites from their session. 

P.S - I'm definitely investing into some nice gloves for the freezing shoots that are coming my way! Any suggestions?

SPARTANBURG, SC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | LUDA & ANDREY

Back in September I had the pleasure of capturing Luda and Andrey’s beautiful wedding in Spartanburg, SC.  They are so much fun, always laughing, joking and having a good time. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and working with the bridal party was such a blast, they were all on a different level of high and excitement.

The wedding decor was the perfect balance between rustic and glamorous with soft whites, eggplant, accents of gold and OMG the floral design!! Check out some of my favorites! 

And a BIG thank you to Ilona Savich for the beautiful hair and makeup.

Megan Scruggs | Portrait | Spartanburg SC

Megan is such a beautiful girl, inside, and out; I enjoyed every minute of it. She's so full of life, joy, and happiness. We were met by the golden rays of the Carolina's sunset, 85 degrees and fire ants. But... We survived and got some amazing goodness out of it! I hope ya'll enjoy!! "I will walk by faith, even when I can not see"
