A Rainy Beach Girls Date!

Here in Charleston you never know when a rain storm will pop up out of no where! So when you plan a girls date at the beach, and the rain begins, you make the best of it! And that's just what these lovely #HolyCityChicks ( XOXO I, Joelle, My Coastal Chaos, The Charleston Weekender, Chasing Cinderella, Thrifty Little Becca )did last month when we meet at Charleston Harbor Resort for a fun day of girl time, photo shoots, fashion, and rum!

We had the pleasure of trying some amazing rum courtesy of Kenny Chesney's Blue Chair Bay Rum! Totally made us feel like we were on a tropical island, rain and all! An their new Key Lime Cream flavor is just delish!

And even though it wasn't overly sunny due to the come & go rain, SEE Eyewear had us covered with their stylish sunnies for those occasional sun spouts!

And what could be better than these super cute, southern themed scarves from Charleston Krewe?! Yes, that is indeed little pelicans, oysters, and mint juleps printed on them! Perfect for our 
Charleston girls date!

Even the rain couldn't stop this crew from having an amazing day!

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…

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.

Amber: Charleston Senior Session 2017

Congratulations to this beautiful young lady on her Class of 2017 High School Graduation! I had the pleasure of capturing her senior portraits here in Charleston earlier this year. She, along with her family, came all the way from Tennessee to meet me downtown and capture these special memories! It is always a pleasure to meet my new families and get to know them as we spend hours together making magic. 
Amber, you are a beautiful lady and I wish all the best for you at University of Tennessee!  See you again in CHS soon!
