  • Sometimes ya just gotta say what the ‘heck’, and take a Monday off of work☀️
Always in awe of how much beauty there is just a short drive from home, lucky to live NC.
Also SO good to have no cell service, hike up a good sweat with a spectacular view,  and refresh with a cold brew.  A little slice of heaven for me☀️
Highly recommend Stone Mountain State Park!  Any other great spots to recommend? Would love to hear.

  • When you bring a fabulous #katespade dress to your branding session, of course you dance!
One of Carie’s favorites,  she loves how it spotlights her fun & vibrant personality ✨
Definitely a memorable photo shoot!

  • Jamie came to the studio to update her head shots & branding portraits.  She brought many gorgeous & colorful wardrobe items, as is part of who she is and her vibrant brand. (She can also rock a band t-shirt too!)
Love this dress on Jamie, simply stunning ✨

  • Ohhhh I just love photographing mothers and daughters.  The time we spend in the studio together is always full of so much love, joy & celebration✨
Nothing sweeter than capturing the bond that mother’s & daughters share.
So thankful Ashley brought her Mom and sister to the studio for beautiful portraits together.  Three amazing women, so kind and loving.  I know these printed portraits will be timeless treasures for generations to come ❤️
