This young lady is as sweet as they come! I absolutely loved her energetic, yet poise personality. I know her drive and passion will make her successful in whatever she chooses to do in the future.  Brenna was an absolute joy to photograph!

It is seniors like Katie that make me love being a photographer more and more.  Katie currently attends East Mecklenburg High School.  She will be a beloved Tar Hell at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (Go heels!!!!) in the fall.  Katie was amazing and it was an honor to photograph her senior portraits!!

When Katelyn asked if I would photograph their engagement session at the iconic Boone Hall Plantation I nearly died!! I said you have got to be kidding me! Little did I know, she was dead serious.  Let me just say, this location is one of the most magical places I have ever been to.  Boone Hall Plantation was one of the locations where the film “The Notebook” took place.  Well known actors, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were also married there.  This particular engagement session was very special to me, because the groom to be Lin, is my cousin.  I was honored when he and his fiance chose me as their photographer.  The love these two share for one another is absolutely unconditional.  I am so happy for them and I hope you guys enjoy these precious moments!

I have to say it was such a pleasure to photograph such an inspiring senior!! This young woman just moved from Arizona to Fort Mill a few short months ago.  I cant imagine how hard it must have been to leave all of her friends right at the beginning of her senior year.  Despite the abrupt move, Talia has quickly made her mark in the Charlotte/Fort Mill area.  As you will see in her session, Talia is Dee-jay! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this talented young lady!!
