lifestyle: Makinson + Ryan | a love story

I had so much fun spending a rainy Saturday morning with these two.  Makinson and Ryan have a laid back easy kind of love, so they wanted their engagement session to be the same.  They cook a big breakfast every Saturday morning and take Penny, the dog, for a walk.  I tagged along and documented their morning rituals and also caught some quiet moments of true love.  I can't wait to celebrate with these two as they say "I do" on New Years Eve.


Check out more images from their session below and a few from another mini session we did at the beach.

Amanda + luke | a maternity story

I have known Amanda her whole life. She's the best Pictionary partner, back scratcher, secret keeper, partner in crime, and she makes me laugh until I cry.  She's my cousin, but she's more like a sister and Luke is her perfect match.  I cried (and I mean ugly cried) when she told me she was pregnant.  I cried again (in the middle of Whole Foods, no less) when she told me she was having a girl.  I hope that our daughters will be as close as we are!  


For this session, we set out on a cozy picnic with some really pretty scenery and a lovely sunset.  The weather was perfect and the hot chocolate was warm and Amanda and Luke were so cute.


 I look forward to seeing you both become the most loving parents and I cannot wait to meet (love and squeeze) your perfect baby girl!

2015: A Year in review

Wow! It's been an amazing year! Personally, we sold our first house, moved to a different state, bought a new house, and at the end of the year, I officially started The Preservationist! As a business, I met some really great people with very beautiful families, I documented some amazing stories, I worked with the lovely Abigail Wyatt of Forage and Lauren Hamill of Lauren Amos Designs, and I finally made a website!  It's been a big year and I can't wait to see what 2016 has in store. I thought I would share some of my favorite moments from 2015 and I perhaps, this will be the year I tell your story. Cheers!

Well, Hello THERE!

So glad you stopped by! Lets start this blog off right with a few of my favorite images from the Christmas mini-sessions this season.  These mini sessions were so fun!  We shot them at the beautiful Southerlyn Farms in Holly Hill, SC.  We were there for two rounds of sessions a few weeks apart and the weather was beautiful for both!  Southerlyn Farms is so beautiful and perfect for a rustic wedding.  Enjoy these cozy mini sessions!
