A Getaway in Savannah!

I am a sucker for historical cities & towns! Living in Charleston I can't seem to get enough! I recently had the pleasure of spending a few days in Savannah, GA. It was close enough to drive, but far enough away to be.. a mini vacation.. or getaway. Whatever you wanna call it, it was an amazing stay! Savannah, established in 1733 is the oldest city in the state of Georgia. It is full of cobblestone streets, parks, historic buildings & homes, and so much more I could go on for days! 

Due to limited time I wasn't able to explore nearly as much as Id hoped to of this beautiful place. We spent most of our time downtown and a short time down at the Riverwalk. I do plan to visit again soon and capture more of the historic homes and spend more time at the Riverwalk, so stay tuned! 

SO! Here is a quick recap of our brief visit to Savannah!

Exploring Downtown!




Our Hotel: The Andaz Hotel
Take a peak back to my previous post HERE to read all about this hotel and just 
why it was so amazing!


Our Lunch of Choice: The Kayak Kafe!
This place was absolutely to die for. The staff, chef, & owner were all so friendly and accomidating! And the food.. oh my gosh take me back NOW! Read more in detail about our lunch 
HERE on my Kayak Kafe post!






Dinner Time at Tequila's Town
Wholly moley I cant even begin to say enough fabulous things about this place. Some of the most amazing authentic Mexican cuisine I've had to date. Read all about it for yourself HERE on my Tequila's Town post. 





And don't forget to swing by the famous Paris Market while you are in town! Be sure to snag a coffee and some of their delicious macaroons while you browse the shop, or sit on the patio and watch the beauty of the city unfold around you!




That's a wrap for now! Stay tuned to future visits to Savannah!

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!
