the Journal

I love summer nights, quiet moments, genuine love, timeless stories, and the kind of dream clients who like to walk slow and stop to smell the Carolina Jasmine. If you're into photographs that feel as intentional as you are, you want your memories become history, and you'd like to make a new friends in the process, keep scrolling-- I can't wait to meet you.

Victoria and her sweet boys joined me for a morning lakeside motherhood session. I was SO happy that they had a morning full of play.
