Today marks a year of probably the fastest year of my life to date!!!  A year ago I went into the hospital not knowing how on earth my heart was going to love another baby as much as I love Kenzie… but what they say is true… your heart doubles when that second baby comes and it’s possible to love each child the exact same… because good gravy I love my two girls with every piece of me!!  Kenlee, you are such a gift to our family and I am so very thankful that God choose me to be your mommy!!  It’s hard to now remember what life was like before you came along.  You fit into our family so perfectly and it’s been so much fun watching you this first year!!  You aren’t a cuddle bug (so when you do cuddle I hold you as long as I can) and you are ALWAYS on the move which keeps me constantly on my toes but I wouldn’t have it any other way!!  You love life and laugh and smile at everything!!  You love to talk and play with your sissy and you have so much fun watching the dogs!!  Kenlee Marie, we love you sooo soo much!!!! Happy 1st Birthday sweet girl!!!!!!

Dad, thank you so much for being willing to take a few photos of us when Kenzie met Kenlee for the first time!! Love these images so much!!!!

    Happy First Birthday!!!

  • MelMarch 9, 2017 - 4:51 PM

    SO sweet, yay for birthdays!!! 

I met Becca when I was in the tenth grade!! I was new at that particular high school and even though she was a year younger than me we clicked and became fast & dear friends (Becca, thanks for wanting to be my friend 🙂 :))!!  Fast forward to the summer before my senior year and my family moved to Charlotte & she moved back to Georgia.  I’m going to date myself, but there was NO such thing as facebook, or instagram, or really anything other than instant messenger and our cell phones to keep in touch… and with cell phones we probably only got to use when it was after 9 and it was free (yes young ones that might be reading this… unlimited calling was not something of the past… if you used too many daytime minutes… well I would get in trouble!!) Long story short, Becca & I lost touch.  But then facebook happened when we were in college and we were able to somewhat reconnect… well fast forward to spring of 2015 and after almost 13 years of not having seen one another we met halfway between Spartanburg & Agusta and caught up!!!! I soo wish we hadn’t lost all those years, but what I am thankful for… is that we have reconnected and I am soo thankful God placed this amazing woman in my life when I was 15 years old!!  She is a woman that puts everyone else before herself.  She loves to no end and most importantly she loves & shares Christ unashamedly and I look up to her in so many way!! She is truly an inspiration!!  In the fall of 2015 I sat on her couch before heading out to document one of her best friends weddings that afternoon and we poured our hearts and lives out to one another and bathed our friendship and lives in prayer that morning.  I remember looking up and being like “BECCA as much as I wish we could do this all day… we can’t!! There’s a wedding that needs photographing and if we don’t get ready NOW we are going to be late!!!” I still remember that one of the things we prayed about and for that day was for the man that God had created for Becca. Well this past Thanksgiving week as I’m sitting on the couch I received a text that made my heart soo soo happy.  I can’t remember the exact wording but I know Becca told me she thought she had met the person she’d marry one day.  Sure enough she had!!!  Earlier this month I received a call to tell me that Colin had asked her to be his wife!!!!  I had yet to meet Colin, but I knew the first time Becca told me about him that he was special and that he was the one that God had patiently 😉 had Becca wait for.

Becca & Colin asked me I think the week after they were engaged if I’d be willing to document their wedding!!  Becca said she couldn’t imagine anyone else standing with her and spending so much time with her on that day… and so of course I said YES!!!! 🙂 🙂 I’m crazy excited to document the beginning of their marriage on their wedding day!!  They came up a few Saturday’s ago to say hello & take their engagement photos!! Y’ALL!!!! I had never met Colin before but this man was made for this woman, and vice versa!!! The way they love one another is incredible!!! They are soo much fun to watch and be around!! They are two people so in love & so excited to get married and start their lives together…. and more importantly follow God wherever He leads them!! I can’t wait to see what God does in and through their marriage!!!  Colin & Becca, THANK Y’ALL from the bottom of my heart for wanting me to be your wedding photographer!!  Becca you mean so much to me & it makes me soo soo happy to see you radiating happiness & joy!!!  Here are just a FEW of my favorite photos from their engagement session!!

    love the story behind these beautiful photographs!

  • EmilyMarch 6, 2017 - 6:24 PM

    I love these! The BW especially – they are so timeless!

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet little girl and her mom and dad!! She was just over a day old & sweet as can be (however she is NOT a fan of not being swaddled!!) I definitely need more brand new babies in my life!!!  When Sabrina & I were talking about this session we had it scheduled for February 22nd because Isabella’s birth day was “supposed” to be the 21st, she obviously had other plans!!  When I woke up last Monday I had a text from Sabrina saying that she came early!!  I headed down to Greenville Tuesday morning to photograph Isabella, Sabrina & Ben and oh my goodness this little girl is the sweetest.  She’s adorable, and the way Sabrina & Ben love her & each other, just made me soo soo happy and it was such an honor to document the three of them.  Sabrina & Ben, thank y’all for letting me capture just a snapshot of this time in y’alls lives.  Y’all are amazing parents & have two beautiful little girls!! I’m looking forward to seeing them become the best of friends!!  Here are just a few of my favorite images from Isabella’s fresh 48 session last week!!! 🙂 🙂

Y’all!!! Just look at these two!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • […] And then Kendra came to the hospital the next day for some Fresh48 photos.  It was the perfect chance to have photos (other than the birth!) of just us with Isabella.  She’s going to have plenty of photos with her sister so this was just about her 🙂 To see more of this Fresh48 session, head over to Kendra’s blog!
