Blue Ridge Parkway { North Carolina Travel Photography }

This was truly the highlight of my trip to North Carolina. I was so excited to realize there was an exit ramp right outside of Maggie Valley to enter The Blue Ridge Parkway. The amazing drive, also known as "America's Favorite Drive" is 469 miles long connecting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. We actually took 2 days to drive this beauty. The first day we entered in Maggie Valley and drove a few hours then back so we could take it all in. The second day we entered the Parkway from Pisgah Highway and drove down to Pisgah National Forest. Overlooking the mountain side on the Parkway will simply take your breath away! There are so many overlooks, trails, picnic spots, camping & lodging along the Parkway to enjoy. What an amazing journey to plan a road trip and drive the whole way. I will let you know as soon as my schedule allows time for that! So, in the mean time, here is our little piece of The Blue Ridge Parkway! Enjoy!

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!

I recently had the pleasure of shooting with this beautiful young lady! She was visiting Charleston with her parents for her orientation at College of Charleston before starting this month in August. She wanted some shots in downtown Charleston and we set out to create some magic! Her family was staying at Francis Marion Hotel so we utilized the surrounding streets as our backdrop for her shoot. She is such a beauty and I can not wait to work with her again soon!
