This girl is graduating! Abby is a very bright and sweet lady that rocked her senior pictures. This mini shoot took place at a gorgeous little hidden gem in Fort Mill, SC. Even though we had to dodge a sprinkler or two… it turned out to be quite the fun morning!
It may be hot outside, ☀️🔥 but that won't stop us! To beat the heat, we did a mini shoot and got some great shots of these gorgeous sisters (inside and out) and the family.
It was an absolute pleasure Wade family! Thank you!! ❤️
Themed dance recital program
Another program book design for Miller Street Dance Academy’s Recitals! What is this… 6/6 now?
If you haven’t figured it out already, the theme of this dance recital is all about apps! From conception to print, this was one FUN project. After banging my head on the wall just a couple times, I made another deadline and pretty fun book if I don’t say so myself :)
Think about it… the dance recital theme was based on technology… therefore a PRINTED program had to reflect a DIGITAL concept. This made my head spin for a few weeks.
An easy solution to the juxtaposition of a technology themed program was the incorporation of phones and tablets, in addition to making pages within the book appear as if you were looking at a tablet screen (wifi connection, battery life, etc.).
Another solution was to use a handful of lucky dance students to represent the most popular apps. From costuming, prop collecting, and art direction, I was able to have lots of say in my vision for these shots (credit goes to Exulting Images). My favorite is 100% the snap chat cover above - creating my own snapchat filters in photoshop and placing that famous dog face and flower crown made it all worth it!

So much silliness and fun!
The Ellowitch family rocked their mini-shoot.
I’m always prepared to pose a family to create sweet little shots for a fabulous picture, but then sometimes you get three cute kids that don’t mind creating their own crazy candid moments. Sometimes a little silly and a backyard is all you need for a successful shoot!
Dance + Photo Shoot = a blend of perfection!
I was so stoked I was able to blend both of my favorite things (photography and dance) when Brianne decided on an early AM photo shoot. In under 20 minutes, we were able to quickly capture several good ones.
It's the season of our favorite caffeinated beverage!! YOU know what I'm talking about...
PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!!!
Another fun program design for Miller Street Dance Academy! The theme was a modern take on the story of Cinderella.
The book needed characteristics that evoked delicacy, while also a need to weave in elements that were whimsical yet also royal. Watercolor and floral accents paired with gold lettering and a pastel color palette gave me the exact look I needed for a classic tale!

SENIOR PHOTO SHOOT
"He use to play with trains as a boy," is what Reese's mother told me before his senior photo shoot. I couldn't think of a more fitting location to capture the last chapter of his childhood.
Congrats Reese! You're going to be the best hair stylist in Charlotte! :)
BEHIND THE SCENES...
Ready to book your senior photo-shoot?
Sarah & Jeff's Baby Gender Reveal Party!!! – I was so fun to be a part of this sweet, small gathering of close friends and family. Capturing those raw expressions of surprise and joy was an honor (and so fun!) to witness.
I've seen cakes and balloons for baby gender reveals, but I'm loving the confetti! An awesome idea for photos!!
Do you have an event or small gathering coming up?

Brooke and Kevin tied the knot! This gorgeous wedding took place in Isle of Palms, SC. I was so honored to be a part of this special day! Plus, I didn't mind a day trip to the beach and back ;)
Check out 4 more cover designs!!
They're engaged! Kevin and Brooke came up from Charleston, SC to get these adorable shots with me in downtown Davidson, NC. Three outfit changes, four great spots, and lots of love and snuggles got this couple some amazing shots!
One of the best things about being a photographer is you never know when you'll reconnect with an old friend from childhood. I probably haven't seen my friend or her family since I was 17 years old. This sweet family came from three different states for this day of family time and photos!
Hunter is graduating!!! We hit the streets of Charlotte in the early AM to get these fabulous shots with fabulous lighting! Just a couple more weeks, and this chic may be YOUR nurse ;)
