Syled "Dorothy" Editorial

Rosa and I recently styled a beautiful shoot with the gorgeous, Marissa Rocco.  Honestly, we didn't plan on it turning into something that resembled a modern day editorial Dorothy but it evolved into it once we got on location.  The mixture of the killer fishtail braids Rosa did and the long grass and winding paths really gives it a distinct Oz vibe!  I hope you all enjoy these...this project is my favorite with Rosa so far!

Spring Street Style

Here is another beautifully styled shoot I was honored to be a part of with Makeup/Hair Artist, Rosa Martinez.  She styled this look to perfection.  We had help with the second look from Dandy Boutique, my absolute favorite shop in Charleston.  Our gorgeous model is Sam Rueter.  She is a local contemporary artist and one of the most talented women I know!  It was so fun walking the streets of downtown Charleston and creating these gorgeous portraits.  I hope you enjoy them!

Lette - Old Naval Shipyard Portrait Session

The Old Naval Shipyard in North Charleston is one of my favorite places to shoot.  Yes, I love the charm and romance of downtown Charleston but sometimes I want some edge in my photos.  This spot is perfect for that with it's old abandoned buildings and rusted loading docks.  I love photographing Lette, she is such a natural in front of the camera!  She sent me some inspiration shots that she wanted to try because she really wanted to highlight her gorgeous hair in the photos.  We had a crazy winter storm (YES SNOW IN CHARLESTON) so we still had snow on the ground.  Everything was perfect.  I could not have dreamed of these photos coming out any better than they did.  Get ready to fall in love with Lette and this location. xoxo

Retro Style + Laundromat

I've been DYING to share these photos from my styled shoot with the Gorgeous Joanne!  She was dressed in the most amazing retro inspired pieces from Dandy Boutique.  We decided to do the session at a laundromat/cafe right in the center of Historic Downtown and the College of Charleston.  They came out so good!  Check them out xoxo!

Nichol - Getting Lost in the Sunflowers

I've been wanting to shoot in the sunflower fields here in South Carolina for years, but I always seem to miss them.  They don't stay at their peak for very long after blooming and the stars just haven't aligned for me....until now.  I'm very lucky to be surrounded by a community of artists and creatives that want to help each other out.  I posted a plea for help in one of my groups and within minutes, I had a shoot set up in a gorgeous private sunflower field in Ridgeville, SC (and a bonus cornfield right next to it!!) for that same day!  I have been wanting to work with Nichol for a while and this was the perfect location to photograph her at.  Thank goodness she was available last minute!  I hope these brighten your day xoxo.  

Daisy

I had a great experience the other morning working with a local model, Daisy Sanchez.  She really wanted to do something a little more edgy so I thought it would be the perfect time to use the smoke bombs I've been wanting to try for so long!  They were unpredictable, and a little scary at times but so worth it!  We also did some shots at sunrise on Sullivan's Island and this gorgeous field.  Here are some of my faves!
