This is a very special blog post. On this day I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Miss R on her actual 1st Birthday. You see a few days before as I set out to photograph her it started to torrential downpour. The images below will show you just how beautiful of a day it was. The sun was shining so bright for Miss R. Enjoy!!!!!

I Love little piggies!

Mr. N looking so handsome. (and yes I bribe for smiles)

Happy 1st Birthday to the Beautiful Miss R


When I was asked to be the photographer at this amazingly fun wedding, I felt honored. This wedding is filled with LOVE and this couple is surrounded by it.  I could post a thousand pictures from this day but as to not spoil it for the big reveal for J and S, I will try and keep it minimal. Here is just a glimpse into their perfect day! Congratulations Jared and Stacey. And Thank You for allowing me to share in and capture your memories.


I did something a bit different then my usual. I spent the morning with the Groomsmen.

His first glimpse at his Bride. I Love happy Tears.

I bet you have never seen a First Dance like this one.

It was a moment that no one will forget.

(I hear it is on You Tube)

Cn you guess what song was playing?

Fairy Tale Ending!

I am head over heals in LOVE with this gorgeous session. Mr. D was so sweet and cuddly and clearly he is loved by his beautiful mom and dad. He gave me tons of smiles. L and D, I hope you enjoy your little glimpse into our session and thank you for inviting me into your home to capture your precious gift.


Love this little outtake in between feedings

Look at those sweet lashes

These image makes me gush! The simplicity is perfection!

Photographing birthday parties is not a norm for me  since I almost exclusively photograph portraits but when Seri’s mom contacted me, I could not resist. This beautiful birthday parties theme was April Showers Bring May Flowers.The day started out pretty clear and before we knew it, it was down pouring. That did not stop this party.  It was so much fun to watch everyone celebrating such a wonderful milestone. And by the end everyone was smiling including the heavens and Serafina. The sun was shining so brightly and with perfect timing.  Happy Birthday Miss Serafina


The beautiful birthday girl and her sweet big sister!

Happy 1st Birthday Miss Serafina!

Meet the stunning Miss E. She has such a gentle, sweet personality. She was so calm the entire session. Mom, Dad and I chatted away as the snow fell so beautifully outside. As much as I cannot wait for spring to arrive it is days like this one that I am going to miss. Serene, peaceful, and precious! This baby girl is surrounded by Love.



This book is very special to her mom and Dad and VERY old.

I hope you love your Sneak Peek.

Miss J is truly a little beauty! She wanted to stay awake for most of her session but with some patience and baby whispering mom and I were able to get her asleep for these precious images. I am looking forward to going back and capturing her with her beautiful Mom, Dad, and handsome Big Brother.


I adore her pouty lips.

Looking into her sweet momma’s eyes!

When I found out that graduation weekend would fall so close to my due date I was like any mom to be ( even the 3rd time around) a bit nervous. Praying that my little man would stay put until we got home and even with a few minor complications the day before we left for our 900 mile trip to the south,  I was not going to miss such an important monumental occasion in my brothers life. You see five years ago he was just a Senior and My husband and I drove him to see two military colleges. When I reflect back to that time, my brother had the world  at his finger tips, my Jocelyn  could not even walk yet and here she is closer to 6 and we were just beyond excited to see where life would take him.  Stepping foot  in to the first college my brother seemed pretty confident it would be where he would spend the next 4 years of his life that was until our next leg of trip. We pulled up to The Citadel, walked though the front gate and the first words out of his mouth were ” This is where I belong” and he never looked back. This past weekend was an amazing trip for our entire family. These images are just a glimpse into how proud we our of my brother Anthony and his accomplishments. I am lucky enough to have not one but two Marines that I get to call my brothers. I Love them both and truly am the proudest sister ever.


His Final Parade


Our 2nd Lt. following his commission. My mom and I pinned his bars on, my dad gave him his sword and my brother Vincent gave his first Salute.

If you do not know already I am the oldest of 6  :-)

A must have image of my brother Vincent who has done 2 tours overseas!


Graduation Day for our Cadet and 2nd LT


Our Citadel Graduate

This Church in Charleston is truly stunning. My brother was inducted into a gentlemen’s fraternity in this church after graduation. I feel so honored to have witnessed it.

I am beyond excited to share this post. I have been really slacking on my blog but I cannot help but post today! Love was certainly in the air this weekend for all that gathered to celebrate the newest Mr and Mrs. I was so honored to be asked by my friend Julie to capture one of the most important day’s in her life. She could not have married a more wonderful man. I am so happy for them both. Have an amazing honeymoon!



Here comes the bride!


He sees his bride for the very first time.





At Last

The minute that I read this weeks challenge I knew exactly which image I would submit. I gush when I see this image. It is such a tender moment between a soon to be husband and wife. These two LOVE each other. When I look back at their gallery I amazed how much their love just spills through each image.  







Oh so silly is exactly what this little girl is 24-7. She is such a goof and I adore every bit of her.  From  the second she was born we knew we would have a little character on our hands. I could submit a hundred pictures of all her “Silly” Faces but I love how in this one she looks like she is up to no good. My little LOVEBUG!
