Sunset Maternity Session at Myrtle Beach State Park

“A mother s joy begins when new life is stirring inside when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone.”

Loved meeting this growing family a few weeks ago. They are expecting a little boy soon, to add to their already adorable family. His big sisters are already so in love with him and all about mommy’s belly. And I’m sure dad is excited to add a little more blue to the house. Can’t wait to meet little man on their next trip to the beach. Botto Family -22Botto Family -41Botto Family -39Botto Family -35Botto Family -50Botto Family -59Botto Family -79Botto Family -81Botto Family -71Botto Family -101Botto Family -128Botto Family -133Botto Family -138Botto Family -155Botto Family -174

Heather & Zachary Wedding { 21 Main Events}

 He’s a active duty Marine and shes a Naval Nurse. The only thing they love more than country is each other.

You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
― Bob Marley

Stephen & Alexis Cotton Field Engagement Session

Love isn’t something you find. Love is something that finds you. Loretta Young

This sweet couples wedding is coming up in a few short months so I dragged them out to the woods and made them snuggle…. LOL I’m joking. The snuggling happened all on its own. We were lucky enough to find a cotton patch before it was cut down. And it fits perfectly into the “southern plantation” feel that Alexis is planning for their June wedding.

Family Session in Cotton Field

 “You are my best friend, my human diary and my other half. You mean the world to me and I LOVE YOU.

Nothing beats a cotton field and a cute family. This family just so happens to belong to my sister, so I’m kinda biased. Either way, my first statement rings true. Cotton Fields are the epitome of  southern fall family portraits. It’s like monograms and sweet tea.

Kennedy Family

 

Family faces are magic mirrors. Looking at people who belong to us, we see the past, present, and future.     Gail Lumet Buckley

I have had the pleasure of documenting this little family from the engagement session, then the beautiful wedding and now they’ve added Michael. He’s just what they needed to keep them on their toes. Believe me you have to stay on your toes to keep up with this curly haired blur of a little boy. He literally ran circles around us the whole time. He’s two now and loves Paw Patrol and his momma something fierce.

Kelly + Jeff Cooper House Wedding

It is an extra dividend when you like the girl you’ve fallen in love with. -Clark Gable

Sometimes when I meet a couple you can tell that they are still figuring each other out and still feel new to this love. From  the moment I met Kelly and Jeff it felt like they had been together for a lifetime. Like two puzzle pieces that show you the full picture.  The way that Jeff looks at Kelly is the face you make when you remember a warm summers day from your childhood. Pure happiness!!! Kelly could’t get down the isle fast enough to become Jeff’s wife. As soon as she came around the corner and saw him, it was like you plugged in a Christmas tree.

They said their vows as the sun was setting at  The Cooper House on a hot summers night in September in front of Family and close friends. Really you could’t get a better happily ever after.
