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

Nina + Veda

I am probably one of the biggest fans of dogs IN THE WORLD.  My 5 year old Dachshund is such a big part of my world and brings me more happiness than I could ever explain. When Nina asked me to do a photo session with her and her 5 year old French Mastiff, Veda, I was ECSTATIC!  Why doesn't every single dog owner do this?!!  Dogs aren't with us forever, unfortunately, but having beautiful portraits of a sunset evening playing in the water together will be something you can treasure for a lifetime.  This session makes me so happy.  Nina is absolutely gorgeous and Veda is a whole lot of love and sweetness.  I won't forget her running into the water and splashing around....And yes, dogs can smile.  Check out my favorites from our evening together! xoxo
