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…

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 …
