Good Eats! { Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Charleston SC }

I love food photography. No no, I mean I really LOVE food photography. Living here in Charleston there are so many good restaurants and I have decided to take advantage! So last weekend a dear sweet friend of mine and I decided to head downtown for the day. Just us, two teenage girls, a curious seven year old, and my 3 month old golden retriever puppy. What. Were. We. Thinking... Did we have a nice time? YES. Were we totally stressed by the end of the day? Heck YES! We spent the afternoon walking down King & up Market Streets checking out shops & boutiques while I, of course, got some great photos of this amazing place.

We decided to make a pit stop at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for a late lunch. I have been dying to give it a try and since it is kid & puppy friendly, it fit the part perfect.



The waitress fell in love with our Dexter and he took the opportunity to eat & relax on the dog friendly patio. 




So I decided to start with a Blood Orange Margarita. I must say, it was very refreshing 
& pretty to look at! (PS- you can keep the souvenir shaker for $4 more)


Time for the entree. I decided to go with the Run Across America Sampler because I just could not decide on one thing. I did want a variety so this was the one! It included: Bubba’s Far Out Dip and Chips, Chilled Peel ‘n’ Eat Shrimp, spicy Chicken Strips, Hush Pups, 
and Mama Blue’s Fried Shrimp. 

There really isn't anything negative I can say about my food choice. I am always a sucker for spinach artichoke dip. The hush pups were to die for! The whole platter was ah-mazing. 



The teens both got the All American Cheeseburger, my little one went with the
Holy Moly Macaroni & Cheese Pleez!


The waitress REALLY loved Dexter.. and he was soaking up every bit of her attention.


Definitely will be returning. There are just too many things on that menu that I can not wait to try! If you are ever downtown Charleston nearby, stop in and try them for yourself!

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…

2016 - Behind The Scenes!

Happy New Years! I am so thankful & blessed for a pretty amazing 2016. I have had the most fantastic clients a photographer could ask for, met some truly awesome people, and had the most amazing business opportunities I would have NEVER imagined would cross my path. So, I'm not making any NY resolutions this year, only goals for an even better 2017!

Some might think my shoots are all fun & games... and they're right! I always have the nicest, most laid back clients (to date) and that makes for a killer shoot. We laugh, we joke, sometimes we dance, sometimes we act silly, and sometimes we even cry (well, the little ones anyway).. But one things for sure- we always create magic. Here are just a few behind the scene looks from 2016. Here's to an amazing 2017!


Gettin' silly with it!
Sometimes it takes a little time to warm up to the situation..
Sometimes we get distracted..
When Daddy does silly things to make you laugh and then... you're DONE!

However many it takes …

Tavolo: A Taste of Italian in Charlotte!

Tavolo: A family style Italian restaurant in the uptown area of Charlotte, NC. Located at 300 North College Street, Tavolo offers fine Italian dining, wood fired pizzas, wine & cocktails, and more! Enjoy a seat at the full service bar, upstairs, or a traditional table in the downstairs dining area!

I recently had the pleasure of tasting this amazing restaurant for myself while working  in Charlotte with Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl
We started our trip to Tavolo with a few choice martini cocktails:  • the Fragola: vodka, simple syrup, sour mix, fresh strawberries & basil • the Bacio Del Limone: Prosecco, house made Limoncello, fresh raspberries 




As we enjoyed these delicious house martinis, we decided to add a few appetizers into the mix. 
• Carpaccio De Manzo: thinly sliced beef tenderloin topped with sea salt,  cracked black pepper, olive oil, arugula & asiago! 

• Calamari Alla Diavolo: fried squid with roasted & cherry peppers,  served with marinara. 

After devouring…
