Raeanne | Portraits

I've known Raeanne for years... we more or less grew up together. She's the one responsible for making a harpist out of me. :-) I saw her play long ago and fell in love with the instrument, and then she let me play on her smaller harp for over a year to find out if I really wanted to play it. She's been an immense blessing to me and she is incredibly beautiful and talented into the bargain! Sometime we'll have to do a longer shoot!

Michael & Laura | Engagement: Preview

Sorry for the late post everyone - I have a bunch of stuff to post, just so little time to post it! :-) I just couldn't resist a preview from such a special engagement session tonight for my dear friend Laura and the man who has stolen her heart. We ended the session in a coffee shop, and I might have been swooning a little over their cuteness + window reflections + ...well, their cuteness. :-)

Megan | Maternity

It hasn't been too long since these two were on the blog last, but what you didn't know then was that changes were looming ahead for them. They're now just weeks away from welcoming their first little one into the world - so exciting! I'm pretty sure they will have absolutely adorable kids.

I wouldn't call myself a maternity photographer (first time doing this for me!), but they asked and I couldn't refuse!

Tallulah looks less than pleased at the prospect ahead. :-)

Frank & Katherine | Wedding: Preview

Ooooohhh, my heart. I know I keep doing this thing where I share a top favorite image right off the bat... but seriously. How can I keep this to myself? Frank & Katherine are so perfect, and their wedding was an autumn dream! Excited to share more of this one soon!

Life of Late | October 2014

Titling this post was quite the ordeal. It was going to be "What I'm Loving." I feel like that was a spin off of the McDonald's slogan. "I'm Lovin' It." Except, I'm much more sophisticated than that, so I phrased it more correctly. Though I suppose it should technically be, "What I am Loving." And that still doesn't sound right. Probably "What I Love" is the most concise version. I am completely overthinking this... and that's exactly what I have done for the past 20 minutes. I can be considered officially pathetic when I sit in front of the the thesaurus trying to come up with a clever post title. I even translated it into French, to see if that would make it sound fancier. "Friday Favorites"? Definitely cliche. "Current Favorites"? Boring. "Contemporaneous Choices"? (that is obviously the fruit of the thesaurus). Everyone will just think that's WEIRD. *sigh* Ok... "What I'm Loving." My brain is so tired I don't even know what I think of that!

Welcome to the world of an over thinker and a perfectionist. Sometimes, it is not a fun world. Creating blog post titles is serious and stressful business, ladies and gentlemen.

That's me, pretending to be a statue. Just as proof that I CAN loosen up. Sort of. Sometimes.

*deep breath*

Now that we have that out of the way, here goes the actual post. Once a month I'm taking a break from the "meaty" posts consisting of photography work, photography tips, and other such instructional posts. And I'm just going to talk about what is catching my eye this month or other randomness!

- It's October! One of my favorite months. Trees turn colorful this month and we pull out the fall sweaters, the tights, the boots. I get to wear my two cute, cool weather not-cold-enough-for-the-winter-coat coats. We drink more coffee and hot chocolate. We plan bonfires with friends. Part of me is sorry to say goodbye to summer because we had such a short one this year, but I'm still welcoming fall with open arms.

- The 1940's. That's nothing new, but I've just been really into it lately. Having so much fun looking at old ads and pictures on Pinterest. I love this picture.

- A couple of weeks ago I happened to be browsing Craigslist and stumbled across this darling little desk. A few emails later, we were headed out to look at it and brought it home. Some of you may know that my bedroom remodeling project has been... well, quite a process shall we say. It is so fun to have such an adorable new piece to take the room another step in the right direction! And it's the perfect home for my vintage cameras and photographs.

- I cut my hair! It hasn't been quite this short in a long time. It was a spur of the moment decision the day before leaving for Remembering WWII. It's just hair - it'll grow. :-) And right now I'm rather enjoying something different!

- I don't know what happened to me, but this year I seem to have turned into the stereotypical girl who loves shoes. As a very little girl, I definitely loved any "clacky shoes" (anything with a heel!) but as I got older I always just had shoes purely for practical purposes (by choice - I never wanted to buy more than I absolutely needed. Yep, one pair of sandals, a pair of sneakers, and a pair of winter shoes and I was set). Then... I must have gotten fashion conscious and now I realize how the right pair of shoes can make your outfit. My mom doesn't know what to make of me. Right now I have my eye on these in burgundy - I just love that color for fall!

- This recipe. The perfect, slightly spicy, not too sweet, cocoa-esque concoction. And it's healthy! It looks kind of weird, but believe me... it's delicious!

I'll leave you with a couple of previews from last week!

Wendy | Sunrise Beach Portraits

These pictures..... they make my heart sing. They make me think I was born for living near the beach so that I can get up at 6am and experience the magic of sunrise + piers + swirling water.

Wendy is a doll. That is, I think, the appropriate term for someone who agrees to humor you and get up and look gorgeous at sunrise, especially when already somewhat sleep deprived from late nights on vacation. :-)

South Carolina, I love you.
