Nikki + Jim {Wedding}

I assisted Rachel Thompson Moore with a wedding at the beginning of this month.  I've just had a chance to look through all the shots I got & wanted to share a few from Nikki and Jim's special day.  Enjoy!

Location:  The Saw Mill - Greenville, SC

Your comments are always welcome - so please leave your thoughts ;-)

Wanna have a fun shoot?  Here's the recipe...
~Kids that are too cool for their high school
~Prom Dresses (with fabulous shoes) & Tuxedos 


A special thanks goes to Lindsey Mills for letting me use her studio on this extremely windy & stormy evening.  She was so gracious in loaning her facility & props - I'm so very grateful for my generous photographer buddies ;-)

Miss Maddie {Portrait Party}

Yep, she's oh so precious!  I'm swooning over the photo posted above.  Those eyes...

Okay so all the photos I've been posting from the portrait party would not have even been possible without the help of the hostess who pulled all of this together.  I am applauding you Jessica for doing such a super duper job...again.  We've worked together before so she knows how I work.  For example, she knows that I hate sun speckles and avoid them completely - it's solely shaded areas for me.  She puts up with my silly noises and comments.  She can also take care of the people who are leaving the mini-sessions by informing them about what happens next while I start with the next session (love that!).  She even has her hubby bring us lunch...holla!!  She has full faith in me and my work and that inspires me.  Jessica, Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Here's some other shots from her session...

Baby Carter {Portrait Party}

I ended my day with a sweet little sack of sugar that was just over a week new....Mr. Carter.

The Filyaw's {Portrait Party}

Got to see the Filyaw's again at the portrait party.  It's always a pleasure to see them - especially Mr. Colton.  I love how he is holding mom and dad's hands/fingers in this shot.  I'm swooning...

The entire gallery is open for viewing on my website under PORTRAIT PARTIES.  Have fun looking through them!

Mason & Knox {Portrait Party}

Mom brought her 2 little fellas out to the mini sessions last Saturday with not so much confidence in me. ;-) She forewarned me that it was nearly impossible to get a shot of the boys together.  She wanted one, didn't even care of they were looking at the camera - without looking too sure of myself I just said "ok" while giggling on the inside.
I hate to toot my own horn, but it's a sad frog who can't praise his own pond.  I think I nailed it! :-))

They did great!  There are lots of great shots, but here is one of my favorites that I'm in love with.... 

Dalton {Portrait Party}

Dalton had me working a little harder during this session - he wasn't ready to relax with me around at first, but after threatening to put a booger on him...he warmed right up ;-)

Baby William {Portrait Party}

Would you get a look at this little ham?  All it took was for mom to sit and talk to Mr. William (who is 7 weeks new)

It's quite obvious how mom just adores her new little guy.

and if the above doesn't give you a hint of her love for him, this next one says it all...

Claire {Portrait Party}

Another preview from one of the mini-sessions - she is a cutie-patootie! Miss Claire...

Coordinating colors are not required, but this family gets 2 thumbs up for their color scheme.  Love it!

Hope you are enjoying all the sneak peeks because there are half a dozen more coming soon!

Rabon Boys {Portrait Party}

My next little models for Saturday's mini sessions were the Rabon boys...Blake & his new brother, Baylor.  Blake is a big 'ole load of cuteness!

And such a great big brother...

Rabon Girls {Portrait Party}

Look at these cute little chicks!
Raising a girl is pretty challenging at times, I can't imagine raising 3!  Mom and dad are definitely gonna be fighting off the boys when these 3 get to the dating age.  Mrs. & Dr. Rabon are going to have their hands full(er).  Meet the next mini session from this past Saturday's portrait party - The Rabon Girls...

Blakely Claire {Portrait Party}

Blakely Claire provided a little comic relief for me while editing her images from the portrait party.  I'm so glad she came!


Carson {Portrait Party}

Spring has sprung and portrait parties have begun!  Saturday was my first portrait party of 2011.  I had 11 mini sessions and I'm so excited to show you 2-3 shots from each sitting.  First up - Mr. Carson.  It was almost exactly one year ago that I was able to meet Mr. Carson and it sure seems that he has grown up a good bit since then.  

I had the cutest little people & cutest little props for the mini sessions on Saturday...
And a beautiful location on a beautiful day.

FYI - Portrait Parties/Mini Sessions are 20 minute sessions with an online gallery of 10-15 proofs.

All of Carson's photos from his mini session are posted HERE.  Enjoy!
