Battery Picnic { Charleston SC }

I am not a fan of cold weather. Period. In recent weeks here in the amazing Charleston SC it has been just that. Cold. It makes me crave the spring time. I am ready to get back out and do some exploring and shooting of the old city. Don't get me wrong, I certainly can do these things in the cold but I who am I kidding, that'll never happen. These days I would rather be bundled up with a blanket & my coffee parked in front of Netflix. While browsing through some "warmer weather" photos I came across some photos I captured of our picnic at The Battery Downtown a few mos ago. The girls & I packed a quick lunch & headed downtown. This was our very first outing since moving to Charleston back in September 2014. What a peaceful day. We ate, chatted, and just laid around on our blanket and watched the scene. If you are ever this way, I definitely recommend a Battery Park picnic. This is for sure going to be a regular for us.. when it warms up of course!



Our lunch consisted of ham sammies, cheese sticks, grapes, corn chips, cookies, juice & water. Super easy to toss together and carry... not to mention the easy peasy clean-up!




So peaceful and serine! I think I could have laid there all day and enjoyed the quiet and watched everyone enjoying the day!


We even shared our grapes with this little guy!

2 Best Friends + 2 High Schools = GRADUATION

This time 14 YEARS ago, yours truly was preparing for life after graduation. It seems so unreal. I can remember getting our outfits together for graduation pictures and deciding what time we were going to meet because of course we had to go together! We would meet that day at our high school, stand posed for outdoor "casual" photos first, then head to the library for our "formal" shots. I am pretty sure that is the same routine now a days. BUT not for these lovely ladies! Last weekend, I met these two beautiful young ladies, best friends graduating from 2 different high schools. We met at Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner SC. What an amazing setting as you can see! I had no problem getting laughs from these two and their true personalities came pouring out in each image! They just flowed together so well, I could see why they were best friends! I had so much fun with these young ladies and a HUGE Congrats to them on their graduation!






Aren't they beauties?! What year…

Lipstik Girls!

Bethany had an amazing opportunity to model for Lipstik Girls Clothing 2014 Elisa B. line! From the time she began working with Gooma Models she has wanted to work with this company. Their clothing line for young girls is simply stunning. I was super excited for her to have this opportunity! We chose a downtown / urban style setting for this shoot. I must tell you IT WAS HOT! We were roasting. We kept pushing on and after a few hours, we had finished this amazing shoot. UPDATE: The first image was listed on Itsy.com for Lipstik Girls / Elisa B. clothing. Shreek! You girls truly deserved it!



















Exploring Saint Augustine, Florida

This year for my birthday, we decided to take a girls trip down to St Augustine, Florida! I’m a sucker for a historic city and St Augustine definitely fits that description! Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest occupied European-established settlement within the continental US. 
There is so much to explore & experience in St Augustine, that we definitely didn’t get to see everything! We will definitely be returning in the future, but until then, here are some of our favorites in St Augustine!
Where we stayed: Ocean Sands Beach Inn


This hotel was just perfect for our stay! With everything from the convenient pool, easy parking, continental breakfast to the friendly and helpful staff! Not to mention the hotels private beach just across the street! Stay tuned for a full detailed post of our stay coming soon!
Which brings us to.. Vilano Beach!

This beach was so beautiful and relaxing! The sand in some areas was actually sea shells! Definitely a must stop if you’re into …
