The Millers in the Country | Spartanburg SC Fall Family Photographer

I photographed the ADORABLE Miller family at the new home they are building out in the country near Spartanburg SC, and it was everything I dreamed of: tall grasses, open fields, gorgeous light, cowboy boots, and tons of love and laughter. It was a blast watching this family of 5 playing games, chasing little Levi, and loving on each other. As I watched the kids exploring their new wide-open spaces without a care in the world, I thought about what a special place this is going to be as they grow up on this land…together…laughing, playing, loving as a family. I hope that my photos captured that magic!

Introducing….The Miller Family, At Home in the Country

I think a couple of kiddos love their baby brother!

And he’s off! Levi was on the move for most of our session, and this is one of my favorites!!

Happy boy!!

This is Lawson’s “I love you mom but I don’t want to say it out loud” look. 😉

This was baby Levi’s first official portrait session, so we made sure to get lots of portraits of his sweet face. I wish I could claim responsibility for his laughter in some of these shots, but daddy was behind me cranking up the tractor to get Levi’s attention! Ha!

For real? Levi’s closed eyes, crinkled-up nose laughter is the.best.ever!!

Is there a country song about dancin’ on the dirt roads? If not, I think I should write one…

If you’re a regular blog reader, you know that I always make it a point to photograph mom and dad by themselves. In the craziness of life, it’s so important to remember where this family began, the love between two people that started it all. In the case of Mama and Daddy Miller, their love began in high school! These two have been together for half their lives, and I hope they look at these pictures and see how beautiful their love is.

Love that look of happiness and pure contentment.

Oh hey Levi!!

Here’s a fun favorite to end on–I love everything about this moment…mom and dad focused on each other, Lawson and Elliott racing to the finish line, and Levi clapping and cheering them on. Toooooo cute, y’all!!

The Suttles Family Portraits | Asheville NC Family Photographer

It is so special to watch a family grow and change through their portraits over the years, and I have been lucky enough to photograph this adorable family through some milestones! I first met them 5 1/2 years ago for maternity portraits and then Liam’s newborn session (check it out–he was delivered via FedEx!!). It was wonderful to catch up at the Asheville NC Arboretum recently to document them as a family of four. The Suttles Family is full of love and energy, positivity, and tons of fun.

Mom and Dad have been a couple since they were a whopping 13 years old! I love their love story of growing up together and loving through the years. During every family session, I think it’s ALWAYS important to photograph just mom and dad, even if the kids are running around like crazy behind the scenes, because this love, this connection is where their family began.

The Sleight Family Portraits at Paris Mountain | Greenville, SC Family Photographer

Cute, cute, cute! This fun family has got the cutest kids with the most gorgeous eyes! I met the Sleight family–grandparents, their grown kids and spouses, and three energetic blond grandchildren–at Paris Mountain State Park in Greenville SC for their extended family portraits. I had forgotten how much I love photographing families at this park; it’s a beautiful, rustic, and laid-back location. Enjoy these sweet portraits!

Snow Day Family Portraits! | Greenville SC Family Photographer

We don’t see much snow here in Greenville South Carolina, so everyone is making the most of our Snow Day and “Snowpocalypse 2014!” Our neighbors asked me to photograph some family portraits for them during the snow “event”–yay! It made my camera happy to shoot them in this gorgeous snow storm, and it made my heart happy because these are their FIRST family portraits ever. I love being able to document the love and fun between family members, and knowing that this is the first time that’s been captured for a family makes it even more special. Frank, Leigh, and Gracie are such great neighbors. Tony and I may not live in the fanciest house in the most exclusive neighborhood, but our little street sure does look out for one another, and that’s pretty awesome these days!

**Y’all, I loved this session so much that I’m offering mini-sessions for as long as the snow sticks around! Please contact me for this special rate–a rate that I have never offered before!! I will shoot whenever it is safe for you to get to my house and for as long as the snow is pretty. Don’t miss this special opportunity! 🙂 amy@amycliftonkeely.com **
