Emily + Steve |Downtown Conway, SC Engagement Session

I knew as soon as I met Steve & Emily at a local coffee shop that I wanted to capture their  wedding. Small and intimate ceremonies with just the closest friends and family are my favorite because at the end of the day I feel like I’ve become one of the gang.

They both said they love the Downtown Conway area, and I mean what’s not to love. There is something very special about this little neck of the woods. The riverwalk is one of my most favorite places to be in the world. The downtown area has a southern charm that just can’t be found anywhere else. I know I live here so I am bias, but its why I live here.

Steve has twin boys, so we turned this into a family affair. Caleb & Cody are the sweetest and I can’t wait to challenge them to a hot cocoa drinking contest on the wedding. I think I can take them. LOL  As we strolled through Conway talking about the wedding and finding amazing light, this little family became some of my favorite people. Now I am even more excited about the wedding. Harrison Family -20Harrison Family -31Harrison Family -34Harrison Family -36Harrison Family -41Harrison Family -43Harrison Family -45Harrison Family -52Harrison Family -58Harrison Family -83Harrison Family -84Harrison Family -86Harrison Family -98Harrison Family -107Harrison Family -110Harrison Family -113Harrison Family -121Harrison Family -131Harrison Family -132Harrison Family -140Harrison Family -144Harrison Family -149Harrison Family -150Harrison Family -156

Its a GIRL

Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of. – Bethany Hamilton

Miss Braelyn came into the world on Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 at 8:54pm. She weighed in at 7lbs and 2oz and was 19 inches long. I had the honor of being on the delivery room when she made her debut. This little girl is every hope and wish that her parents have been praying for.JennHospital -2JennHospital -3JennHospital -19JennHospital -21JennHospital -27JennHospital -29JennHospital -30JennHospital -36JennHospital -56JennHospital -59JennHospital -78JennHospital -95JennHospital -117JennHospital -119JennHospital -130JennHospital -140JennHospital -145JennHospital -184JennHospital -209JennHospital -221JennHospital -228JennHospital -234JennHospital -240JennHospital -249JennHospital -250

Cotton Fields in the South

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
C. JoyBell C.

About once a year I can threaten (I’m kidding. Mostly) my children into pictures. And since they are getting bigger right before my very eyes, I’ll take it. My very sweet friend let us borrow her cotton fields to snag a few. I told them funny stories from when they were little to make them laugh and “forced” them to hug each other. ( You know, because they’re to cool to hug their little brother) It only took few minutes to make these memories that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.

Monteith Family Beach Vacation

This super sweet family came to Myrtle Beach on vacation and I got to hang out with them and the sweetest little girl. 🙂 She just wanted the sand and the water, mom just wanted some great pictures. We got both. Can’t wait to see them again next summer.

Thompson Family Beach Session

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” 
– Michael J. Fox

This family is just the cutest!  Elliott and Haley moved to Myrtle about a year ago and needed some new family pictures to prove that beach life is the best life. lol They have two boy that are silly faces and wiggles. Jude and Liam are all boy but they let me get their good sides before darting off. We had a great time and I cant wait for next year.

Chadd Family Beach Vacation

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” » Desmond Tutu

This family was a great change for me. Normally I get there and everyone is wearing white or blue something. These guys wanted just to wear their 2016 NBA Champion shirts. I love it!!!! We had some fun and made great memories. 🙂

Chickens and Coffee

This is how I start my day, everyday. I love watching the chickens hunt for green bits and crawly things. They are named after Motley Crew . I mean they look like a 80’s hair band. Tommy Lee is my Bantam Roo and the love of my life.:) The ducks think they are chickens that swim. LOL   The dogs chase chase sticks and each other till they fall over panting. The horses just want to know what you have for them. Slim (brown one) will literally push the fence down for clover… Its how I stay sane and reminds me how lucky I am. Critters-1Critters-2Critters-3Critters-4Critters-5Critters-6Critters-7Critters-8Critters-9Critters-10Critters-11Critters-12Critters-13Critters-14Critters-15Critters-16Critters-17Critters-18Critters-19Critters-20Critters-21Critters-22
