Kody & Katie (& Leo) | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC

Katie emailed me with enthusiasm on booking one of my fall mini sessions. It was for her, her boyfriend Kody, and their corgi, Leo. I love doing fall sessions no matter what, but couples and their dogs are ones that I don’t get to do very often and I thoroughly enjoy it. This session with Kody, Katie, and Leo was no exception. We had such a great time together and Leo was such a good pup! He even smiled for us a few times! While our mini session was…well…..mini, I always try to get to know who I’m working with a little bit even if it’s just for a short period of time. Kody & Katie moved here from Illinois and have been together since 2016. Their chemistry together was so natural and made my job SO easy. I look forward to more sessions with y’all 😛

Here are some my faves from their session (and I seriously could’ve just posted the whole thing, but alas…I can’t do that, lol). 🙂

Blake & Hannah – Anniversary | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC | South Carolina Wedding Photography

Oh, hey there.  I walked outside today go to pick up my daughter from the school bus stop and thought to myself, why is it so hot?  IT IS SEPTEMBER.  It should immediately drop to 75 degrees once we get into this month, lol.  But alas, it’s still 90 degrees and the humidity is too dang high.  Thanks South Carolina!  But what does this have to do with Blake & Hannah’s anniversary session?  Well, when we shot these, back in May, BUDDY, it was HOT.  But so was this session, some would say, it was LIT (forgive me for being lame, lol) 😀

I shot Blake & Hannah’s adorable outdoor wedding back in May of 2016.  You can see that post HERE.  You can also view their engagement photos HERE as well 🙂 They were adorable then, and nothing has changed.  They may have grown a little as a couple, but my interaction with them was exactly the same and even more fun than any time before.  I was running a model call for couples to fill out my summer a little bit and Hannah volunteered her and Blake.  Immediate excitement on my part, haha.  We just treated it as an anniversary session and went with it.  Not only was it great getting to see them again, but it was just a great time shooting with them again.  We laughed a ton, witnessed a duck murder (more on that below) unfortunately,  and overall had a great time.

I could easily just share all of their photos from this session because I loved all of them so much!  But I tried to keep it chill and only share a handful with you guys.  So here are my faves 🙂

^^^Okay, so…..we were being all peaceful, just shooting away.  I had Blake & Hannah sitting on this rock by the pond.  Meanwhile, some ducks start swimming by.  A few white ducks and then some random black duck.  All of a sudden this black duck darts after one of the white ducks and literally held it under water until it died 😥  A straight up duck murder!  It was awful!  Blake tried throwing sticks and rocks at the duck so maybe it would let go and leave the other duck alone, but it didn’t work.  RIP white ducky

I will forever encourage each couple of mine to take time for yourselves and celebrate your anniversary by getting photos made.  I know once you get married you may not have as much time for things like that and sometimes it’s just nice to set this time aside and enjoy yourselves.  Just have someone photograph you while doing it 😉

Thank you Blake & Hannah as always for being such wonderful models and clients for this shoot!  I welcome you both forever and always to come and model for me 🙂

The Courson Family – Fall 2017 | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC | South Carolina Wedding Photographer

I’ve worked with the Coursons a few times now, this was our third session together.  You can view their maternity and newborn/lifestyle sessions HERE & HERE!  This time we were getting new family photos of Ian, Erica, and adorable Rivers in the beautiful fall weather before it go too cold.  Except that day it was pretty windy and the air was a little chilly.  Either way, we worked fast so Rivers wouldn’t get too cold and the little guy was a champ!  And seriously the most adorable baby ever.  I could just squish his little cheeks!

Here are a few favorites from our session together 🙂

Prom 2017 | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC | South Carolina Wedding Photographer

I don’t photograph prom sessions very often.  Again, like I’ve said in the past, it’s mostly because I don’t get many requests for them.  But I do enjoy it!  It’s just like a wedding, it’s a one time (or twice if you go both, your Junior and Senior year) thing that you get to experience, so why not photograph it!  And I’m a girl, so I’m a sucker for some beautiful people in gorgeous dresses and tuxes, haha.

Julie came to me saying that she wanted me to photograph her daughter and her date before their prom back in April, as well as her friend and her date.  It was so much fun!  We got to photograph them at the beautiful Milliken Park in Spartanburg (we planned on Downtown Spartanburg OR Greer City Park, but there were events happening at both places that day), and everything was perfect!

Here are some of my favorites from their prom session 🙂

I hope you kids had a wonderful time at your prom and wish you the best in your studies!  Thank you for having me photograph these photos for you! 🙂
