Hadley turning 5 is crazy because I remember when she was born and it just seems like yesterday! She is a cowgirl through and through and loves to ride all the time. Here are a few previews from her 5 year old birthday pictures!

 It was a fun day to get to hang out with Gabbie, Michaela and Brad.  Gabbie and her husband have a beautiful farm down in Lincolnton and we got to shoot all over their farm. We started out in the barn doing some lifestyle shots and then we went out to a huge field, even […]

Maria was a blast to work with and down for whatever.  We had a blast shooting at different parts of the farm.  We got really lucky and had an amazing sunset.  Gus was being a little feisty for an old man with the cold weather but hes always usually good for the most part. We […]

Amelia is an amazingly talented ballet dancer and I thought it would be fun to do a ballet dancer and a horse.  Amelia and her mom came out to the farm and we picked out a few of the dresses to use during the session. We headed off out into the pasture and Amelia did […]

I absolutely love getting to work with clothing boutiques and working with Taylor and 9 Grey Horses was such a fun experience.  Kayla and Reid were amazing models and we got to photograph some of their new styles! Here are a few previews!

The photographer/model workshops are so much fun.  We brought in 5 models and 5 photographers.  I work with the photographers and Ashlyn worked with the models. It works perfectly together and we had a blast. The original plan was to do a Classic Cowgirl Photoshoot and start with a covered wagon and horse and buggy […]

I wanted to do a fun cowgirl photoshoot so we wrangled Josie and Lyza together and used my best friends amazing mare (who tolerated them so well) to do a fun photoshoot at sunset.  We maybe only took pictures for like 30 minutes but it always seems like so much longer wrangling kids and horses […]

It’s always fun getting to hang out with the Morrison family.  We did their family pictures on their family farm and it was beautiful! It was the perfect overcast day and a nice warm day for January. Here are a few pictures from their family session.

I was excited to do another photoshoot with Dolly.  She is so chilled and laid back and doesn’t care about to much.  She is an older Amish Belgian draft horse so she’s seen a lot of stuff in her life.  We are excited to have her on the farm! Here are a few previews from […]

When Rylan comes home from school it’s always fun to catch up doing a photoshoot.  The venue, Ellendale Farms, is stunning and has some of the most beautiful sunsets and we were so lucky to get the perfect sunset with such a cool cloud feature. Here are a few pictures from Rylan’s fun photoshoot!

On our last weekend of Christmas carriage rides I love to take my camera and get some pictures of all of the carriages.  We always get to see it from inside the carriage but not what it looks like to other people and it’s so magical. Getting to work for Carolina Carriage Company every year is a […]

Each year getting to do the Childers family Christmas pictures is a blast.  Me and Danette have been friends since we were in elementary school. It’s cool that we get to raise our families together.   Here are a few previews from their Christmas pictures.
