The Brice Family Portraits | Greenville SC Fall Photographer

I am so happy that the Brices chose me as their family photographer for their fall portraits this year at Lenora’s Legacy in Greenville SC. I have photographed this sweet and beautiful family three times now, with the first being when daughter Averi was just a toddler! I love watching families grow up in front of my camera, and these girls are turning into beautiful young ladies! It was a real treat photographing these girls, who were such loving and funny sisters in front of my camera. They never once said “Ewwwww, I don’t want to touch her!!” which happens frequently with siblings during photo shoots. πŸ˜‰ Mom and Dad are equally Β cute together, and I always make it a point to photograph parents, just the two of them…after all, their love is where this family begins. Even though it was a chilly, overcast fall day, this cute family was completely warm and loving!

I get lots of questions about “What should we wear for our portrait session?” and my usual responses include texture, pops of color, and coordinating but not “matchy-matchy” colors and styles. Mama Brice didn’t need my help–she proves that neutrals and patterns can be a BEAUTIFUL option for family portrait clothing and that neutral doesn’t equal boring!!Β  Lenoras Legacy Fall Family Portraits Greenville SC Amy Clifton Keely 10

Two more of my super-faves!! Even Sophie the Dog got in on the family pics. πŸ™‚

The Szabo Family | Greenville SC Poinsett Bridge Family Photographer

The Szabos are a beautiful family, inside and out. We met at Greenville’s Poinsett Bridge for their family photos, and it quickly became obvious what a loving little family they are. Dawson is such a sweet young man–a cutie pie who is easy-going and so loving to his mommy, daddy, and baby brother. This session was special to me, because Tony came with me to help carry gear AND to practice his photography skills. I was so impressed when I saw his photos!!

Fall is definitely in the air in Greenville SC…presenting the Szabo Family

Really, y’all are beautfiul!

Sweet brothers!

Poinsett Bridge Greenville SC Baby Family Portrait Photography Amy Clifton Keely 06

One of my “tricks” when I’m photographing kids of ANY age by themselves is to have them look at their mama and say “I love you mom!” Whether it’s a teenager or a 5 year old, the resulting expression is priceless. This photo on the right is Dawson’s “I love you mom” face. πŸ˜‰

The Davis Family | Fall Family Portrait Photographer, Greenville SC

I have been honored to be The Davis Family’s photographer since their youngest child was just one year old! I love photographing their fall portraits throughout Greenville SC, and this year we chose Campbell’s Covered Bridge for our location. It was the chilliest morning so far this fall, but they snuggled up and looked amazing for their portraits–I think this is my favorite of their sessions yet!! I love watching this family grow up over the years–it is such a wonderful thing to be chosen time and time again to capture a family’s relationship.

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! πŸ˜‰

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!”
