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!

This next set of portraits are some of my favorite from the day…just sweet moments snuggling with Daddy and Mommy in her nursery.

There’s that big personality showing through!

The Murphys’ and Collins’ Family Portraits: Sneak Peek! | Greenville Baby and Family Photographer


I went to school with both of these lovely sisters, and it was lots of fun to photograph each of their families this morning while they were all back in town for a visit! I photographed Nicole’s adorably fun family a couple of years ago, and it’s always special to be asked again. Tara’s sweet baby boy is just 3 weeks old, and oooooh so cute!

Enjoy this Sneak Peek…more to come soon!

Dad is preparing to deploy, and it was really important that we photograph him in uniform, spending time with his family…



I love this look on dad’s face!


While Nicole’s family had a wardrobe change, I photographed Tara and Jason’s brand-new addition!



Love this sweet little profile. And I know I’m stating the obvious here, but this little guy has a LOT of hair!!


Love, love, love this quiet moment with Mommy…


Back to some more casual portraits with Nicole’s family. You can just tell that these 4 love spending fun time together!





Murphy and Collins Families: Thank you so much for letting me share in your lives and for trusting me with these special memories. It was great to see all of you again, and I can’t wait for you to see the rest of your pics! I hope you enjoy your Sneak Peek!

8 Month Old Anna’s Sneak Peek! | Greenville, SC Baby Portraits


Get ready to eat her up–Miss Anna is 8 months old, cute as can be, and SUCH a happy baby! I photographed her and her parents this weekend on a sticky, humid, Southern morning in some Greer SC peach orchards and around their home. In spite of the heat we had a blast and got some adorable portraits of this little girl! Enjoy her sneak peek! (Peach pics to come…)



Cute, cute, cute!!


I’ve known Anna parents for many years through school and church, and I was even in their wedding almost TEN years ago! It was so much fun to catch up with them out in the fields during our session. 🙂


One of my very favorites…



Porch time with daddy…


And really–eat her with a spoon. She is the cutest thing ever!


More pics to come from Anna’s session, but for now please leave a comment to “show us some love!”
