Ava’s Newborn Portraits | Greenville SC Family and Baby Photographer

Sweet Ava’s video slideshow from her newborn portrait session is filled with tender moments with Mommy and Daddy, funny times with their Pup, and sleepy faces (finally!!) on this beautiful baby girl. I hope you will enjoy it! I also just had to include this collage of her…I just love all these brand-new “baby parts”…wispy hair, puckered little lips, tiny toes. So cute!

The Major Family | Greenville SC Fall Family Photographer

I can always tell when it’s beginning to feel like Fall in Greenville: pumpkin spice everything, sunny days and crisp air, a few leaves starting to turn, and lots and lots of family portrait sessions! I love love the Major Family. Not just because of their big smiles and shades of auburn hair, or their love and energy, or their super cute wardrobe choices. I love the Major Family because they truly choose Amy Clifton Keely Photography to be their family’s photographer. This year’s early fall session at Greenville SC’s historic Poinsett Bridge is the SIXTH time I have photographed this sweet family. That means so much to me–to be asked into people’s lives over and over again through the years, through births and birthdays, as the seasons change. I hope you will enjoy these portraits as much as I enjoyed capturing them. My goal with every session is to really capture people as they are, and I hope that you feel like you know this family a little better after seeing their photos.

The Majors…

I love that the girls are running with “Little House on the Prairie” arms flung out, not a care in the world. Makes my heart happy!

At every family portrait session, I make it a point to photograph mom and dad, just the two of them. After all, this is where their family began–with the love between the two of them. And what better gift to give your children than evidence of that love?

While Jess and Chris were getting snuggly in front of my camera, the girls were reenacting their scene BEHIND the camera. Too bad I didn’t capture the gagging noises they were also making. Hehe! 😉

Baby Ensley, 9 days old | Greenville SC Newborn Photographer

Sweet Miss Ensley was wiiiiiiide awake during her newborn portraits on her 9th day. I couldn’t believe how alert she was and how much she loved looking around and following my camera! She’s going to be beautiful AND smart, just like her big sisters! As with all of my newborn portraits, I loved photographing Ensley in her first home amongst the people who adore her the most and in the rooms where she will laugh and play and learn and love as she grows up.

Enjoy Ensley’s sweet slideshow below, and CLICK HERE if you would like to view her proof gallery. (Password is her mommy’s maiden name.) As always, please click the comments below if you’d like to leave a message for Ensley, her family, or me to “show us some love!”

Jim & Sara are Married! | Greenville, SC Wedding Photographer

Blue skies, gorgeous fall sunshine, bouquets full of life, and friends and family who traveled down the east coast to see this bride and this groom. Everyone was watching as these two, who first laid eyes on each other at the gym….or a restaurant (depending on whose version of the story you hear), became husband and wife. On the day when all eyes were on the girl who dislikes being the center of attention, you could tell that she was only concerned with one pair of eyes that watched her round the corner and walk towards him. Her face lit up when their eyes met, and he couldn’t hold back the smile as she made her way down the aisle, escorted by their two little nephews.

Jim and Sara held their wedding at the Larkins courtyard in Greenville, SC, and you can tell that in each other’s eyes is where they find their strength, their peace, their laughter, their forever.

The Trammell Family | Greenville SC Family Photographer

Family is so important. The relationships between parents and their children, siblings, husbands and wives, grandparents and their precious grandchildren–this is what life is made of. These relationships help to make us who we are, and they are what we come back to throughout our entire lives. The Trammells are three generations of laughter and love, and it was an honor to photograph them while everyone was gathered in one place during the Thanksgiving holidays. I used to work with Jessica when our lives were much different, and it was great to reconnect with her now that we are both wives and she’s a new mommy.
