I'm a coffee-fueled boy mama with a deep love for film, old family photos, acoustic music, and the sound of waves crashing at the beach.

Whether you're coming to see a love-soaked family or lifestyle newborn session, glimpses of beautiful Charleston, or my favorite local restaurant and coffee shops - I am excited to share a little piece of my heart with you.

welcome, friend!

I'm so glad you're here!

First Annual Christmas Pajama Mini Sessions

I know its hard to think about Christmas when we’re still dealing with 90 degree temps, but I’m so excited to announce our first annual Christmas pajama mini session event!

I’m teaming up with Laura Ryan Photography to plan a fun + festive day for your littles before the craziness of the holiday season begins!

Our event will have a simple and classic Christmas setup in the studio- so the focus can be on your littles!

These sessions are for your little ones only so parents, feel free to wear your best athleisurewear and enjoy not having to be photo-ready 🙂 I’ll bring the coffee!

How cute were these little models by the way?! We had so much fun letting them put their ornament on the tree, jumping on the bed, and eating their Christmas cookie. The cookies were the biggest hit, for good reason- they are delicious and I can’t wait to order a few extras later this Fall!

The kids’ pajamas were made by Petite Plume Sleepwear are are all available at the cutest Charleston boutique, Ellifox! Links to specific pajamas at bottom of post.
