Last month I was honored to photograph the incredible fashion show put on to support The Coastal Women’s Shelter. All of the fashion’s were provided by the incredible Peacock’s Plume & South Front and were just gorgeous! Here are some images from the evening. Such an incredible cause that I was proud to be a part of!

This girl. Oh this girl. She is bright and beautiful and funny as all heck. She and I had each other laughing the entire time we were together. You might read through my blog posts and hear me mention how much laughing I do…lol…it’s a theme, really. It’s so important to me that my client’s walk away with a giant smile on their face! The entire photography experience, to me, should be one big party and leave a lasting impression that screams “FUN!” while providing a certain level of professionalism and quality in the memories we capture. This is exactly what Alyx and I did during our time together. She is going to do some incredible things as she heads off for college. I wish you nothing but the best, girl! Check out her images below!

I wanted share some images from a recent shoot I had with this beautiful little one! She was such a sweetheart and so great in front of my camera, I could have photographed her all day! Little one’s are special to me…each one brings their own light and personality to a shoot and it’s my job to draw that out of them in a way that reflects in the images I capture. I want their parents to remember them in that very moment, so when the years pass and their personality’s grow and change, they will look at their images and remember them just as they were in that stage of their childhood. When I showed her mom and dad these images, they just smiled. It’s always such a special moment to me to look back and see the reaction of my client’s as they see their little one’s images come to life. It’s why I do what I do and why I love it with all of my heart. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

I had such a great time photographing this handsome guy! Lots of laughs ensued when we set out for his session. I often recommend that my Senior’s bring along a friend to lighten the mood and to keep things fun. That’s just what we did here and the result was a relaxed and genuine look! I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
