The Sills’ Magical Maternity Snow Session | Greenville SC Maternity Photographer


This sweet couple, preparing to meet their baby girl this summer, reminded me of why I love being a maternity photographer! There is such magic in the anticipation, the love that creates a family, and the beauty of this time in a couple’s life. Add in glowing late-afternoon light and a trip into the snowy woods during a rare Greenville SC snow storm, and you have a dreamy portrait session filled with magical moments. This sweet couple, Lindsey and Scott, are the kind of people who you just know are all kinds of good. They are fun and kind with each other, they give generously, and they bring out the best in one another and those around them. From the moment we started talking, they just inspired me to give more freely, and I am absolutely certain they will bring out that kind of good in their baby girl.

Introducing, The Sill Family…

I have been SO excited that my husband Tony is beginning to shoot with me! I always love the intimacy that a Second Shooter can capture when they aren’t directing the scene. This image below is one of his.

I love it when a photo can communicate something without even showing anyone’s face.

Scott and Lindsey, thank you for sharing your love and your kindness with my camera. You guys are truly going to be amazing parents. (I mean, you already know the art of bribery, right??? 😉 ) I am so thrilled that you trekked over during the Snowpocalypse of 2014 and trusted my vision for this portrait session.  Y’all have something special, and I hope that these photos capture that in some small way.
