The Ely Extended Family Travel Portraits | Highlands NC Family Portrait Photographer


Three of my favorite things combined for The Elys’ portrait session at Ray’s Roost cabin in picturesque Highlands NC: extended family, travel, and photography! I LOVE travel sessions–your family is together, having fun and relaxing in a beautiful location. Why not capture that time with professional portraits? I am available to travel to capture YOUR travels!

The super-fun Ely Family converged in Highlands NC for a relaxing weekend together, laughing over old stories, fly fishing amongst the fall leaves, and just enjoying three generations of love.

Introducing…the Ely Family

Is there a better gift than love and laughter that parents can give their children and grandchildren?

Miss Caroline is the sweetest big sister, and a SO pretty in front of the camera. And can I please have her boots in a big-girl size???

Miss Elizabeth wasn’t so sure about me at first, but once she warmed up: incredible cuteness!!! I love her sweet smile!

And this giant laugh?? I want to laugh like this every day!!! 🙂

I looooooove it when couples say they aren’t sure of themselves in front of the camera….and then they give me beautiful moments like these next two shots!

I had to end with two of my favorite portraits….these two big sisters are beautiful girls, and I just melted with their love for each other.

Ely Family, thank you so much for thinking to have your family photographed in such a beautiful place while you were all together! It was such a pleasure laughing with you guys and enjoying the beauty of the mountains in the fall.

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!!

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!

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!!

Fall_Farm_Country_At Home_Family_Portrait_Session_Spartanburg_Greenville_SC_Amy_Clifton_Keely_Photography 35

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!!

Terri + Neal on the Mountaintop | Greenville SC Engagement Portraits


It was an incredible day photographing Terri and Neal’s engagement portraits on the mountaintops of northern Greenville SC! This beautiful couple share a connection that was worth the wait, worth the valleys, and worthy of the mountaintop they are enjoying thanks to God’s graces. Terri and Neal’s story began with a long-distance relationship, and Greenville was their halfway point, where they fell in love with each other and the area’s outdoor spaces. For their engagement session, we trekked through woodland trails at Wildcat Falls and climbed the huge rocky expanse of Bald Rock, both places that I’ve been dying to do a session! These two–who claimed to have almost no photos of themselves because they “aren’t photogenic”–were AMAZING for my camera!! Seriously, some couples just have this chemistry that the camera LOVES, and Terri and Neal are for sure in that category. I’m incredibly honored and excited to photograph their wedding in just a few more days.

Introducing….Terri and Neal, Engaged.

These are two of the first times I pressed my shutter–not comfortable in front of the camera? Whatever!! Terri and Neal were perfect from the start of our session! (And Terri’s hair and makeup were perfect thanks to the always fabulous Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge Hair and Makeup!)

After rambling around Wildcat Falls, we headed up the mountain to Bald Rock, where we were met by a nice cool breeze, beautiful views, and the most gorgeous light to wash over Terri and Neal. I cannot say enough about how much I love every one of these images!

I know it feels funny when I ask couples to look at each other, but there is just something incredible about “that look” when people in love stare into each other’s eyes and giggle!

We had a beautiful sunset at the end of our session. It was so pretty, that my mom called me on the way home to say that she and my dad were driving around trying to catch the last glimpses of it!

Terri and Neal–I am so happy that you guys found each other AND (selfishly) I’m also happy that you found me as your photographer! Your engagement portraits were so special to photograph, and I can hardly wait for all of the beautiful moments that I know will be found Friday at your wedding.

Baby Ava, 1 Week Old | Upstate Greenville, SC Newborn Lifestyle Photographer


I met Sweet Baby Ava and her mommy and daddy for their in-home newborn portraits in Upstate SC when she was just one week old! This little bitty girl decided she wanted to show up a few weeks early, and even though she caught her sweet parents by surprise, they are all getting settled into their new life with lots of love and sweetness. I love photographing newborn portraits at home…where baby first learns to live and love, where we can capture some great lifestyle moments, and where the family can still hibernate together at home. I hope you will enjoy Miss Ava’s sneak peek…more to come once I finish her entire gallery!

Introducing…Baby Ava, 1 Week Old

It was super important to get a portrait of the entire family…including Ava’s fur-brother, Cooper. 😉

Ava’s mommy and her uncle both slept in this cradle when they were babies, too. Ava’s mommy made this sweet animal-themed quilt…but didn’t quite get it finished before Ava made her appearance! She finished quilting just in time for our portraits, though!

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.
