FIELD OF GOLD ADVENTURE SESSION

I have it marked on my calendar when the golden rods will bloom. I wasn't thinking that since I'm in the mountains now, plants will be blooming at different times. I squealed when I pulled into the spot for a long awaited family session and saw a field FULL of golden rods blooming "two weeks early". If that wasn't enough to make for a beautiful photography setting, we also had the perfect weather, and an invitation to board a U.S. Army helicopter! What?!

This evening was a needed reminder that when things do not work out the way you had planned, something even better is in the works. We had been planning this family session since December of last year. Our vision was to meet on a snowy day, but it never quite worked out because of icy roads and calendar clashes. I'm so thankful how all the pieces fell together and for spending the evening with this most deserving family on the mountain side. Not only are they amazing parents, they also established a non-profit organization to help veterans heal holistically so that they can lead happy and healthy lives. 

Addi's smile is the biggest when we are on the edge of the mountain or she's flying through the air into her dad's arms.  She's not even two yet and has already jumped out of a helicopter. ;) With her adventurous spirit, I can't wait to see where life takes her.

LOVE IN SAVANNAH WITH A SURPRISE PROPOSAL

Every corner I turned in Savannah was a glorious new sight for a photographer's eyes. Color, texture, and light peeking through the historic buildings made me so excited! White jasmine climbed over walls with the most amazing smell. I picked some jasmine and combined it with some other local florals to make my sweetest smelling flower crown to date. Beautiful mom-to-be Sarah, her precious daughter Vada, and Joey with a surprise up his sleeve joined me as we walked through downtown Savannah. Expecting their new little girl to arrive soon, Sarah wanted photographs taken in Savannah as it is a special place for them. Joey had his heart set on proposing in the park - our last stop of the evening. He stayed calm and collected, but as we neared the park, his pace grew a little bit faster. We picked an open green secluded area, with stunning Southern Oak trees framing the scene. I couldn't stop smiling waiting to hear Sarah say "yes". She was so surprised and happy! The only thing that could top this moment was when Joey then turned and gave Vada her very own ring. Best job in the world to be able to capture special memories like this one. I can't wait to meet your new little girl! She sure is lucky to have you all for her family.

BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN | FAMILY + SENIOR SESSION

Graduation deserves to be celebrated! This family picked the perfect location to reflect their love for the outdoors and adventure and document senior pictures before graduation. I wish this style of senior pictures had been a thing when I graduated high school!  We hiked Black Balsam Knob just in time to catch a gorgeous sunset with phenomenal views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After an awesome hike, they had pizza waiting for them in their car! I knew I liked this family right away and the forethought to pick up a pizza solidified it!

SPRING FLORALS AT MCGILL ROSE GARDEN

Ahh, just look at this gorgeous hanging flower arrangement created by Nectar! The magic they create with florals is guaranteed to brighten a day. I know first hand! When my husband and I were dating, he would surprise me with the most beautiful arrangements I had ever seen. All created by the incredibly talented team that makes up Nectar. He even proposed to me in Nectar's backyard - the quaint little McGill Rose Garden in Charlotte, NC. 

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph this vision for the beautiful sisters of Twine and Twig! They have an incredible eye for style! McGill Rose Garden was the perfect setting to showcase their Surf Collection.

DOUBLE THE LOVE WITH TWINS

I met Amber and Caleb at a Tree Farm when they were weeks away from welcoming their two little boys into the world. What a treat it was to be invited into their home and meet the boys when they turned six months old! They are identical but sported their own little individual personalities. They cuddled on the bed, showed me their precious nursery, and showed off their squishy rolls for the camera. I could hang out with these guys all day! 
 

BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN VIEWS | WINTER FAMILY HIKE

I had the pleasure of meeting at Andi at Hawkesdene when she photographed a wedding with me. I couldn't wait to see her again and meet her family! Her husband, precious little boy, and a new boy on the way, joined me for a short hike to a stunning view! They ignored the winter chill in the air as we laughed and explored, taking photographs along the way. It was a privilege to capture this special time for their growing family! I LOVE exploring my new area in Brevard, North Carolina. Having these stunning views mere miles from my backyard is such a blessing. Sometimes I have to pinch myself! I feel so fortunate to call these mountains home.

MOUNTAIN TOP | FAMILY AT SUNSET

Exploring mountain tops and reuniting with friends are perks of my career that I do not take for granted. We waited for the perfect evening to meet at the mountain top summit. After exchanging hugs and meeting my friend's beautiful children, we shared laughs and took in the view. Aside from an awesome evening spent together, one of the things that I will hold close to my heart from this session is one sentence that my friend told me after receiving her gallery - "If for a second you ever second guess what you are doing, DON'T." I can't wait for my next mountain top adventure, and capturing memories for another beautiful family!
 

ON THE FARM | FAMILY AT SUNSET

This family session = when everything just falls into place perfectly! Thank you to Jenny, for finding the perfect location! We had a warm, sunny evening together, chasing down horses and twirling in the field at sunset. It was a pleasure to photograph your beautiful family!

 

SUNSET IN THE TREES | JENAE + FAMILY

I love that photography provides me with the opportunity to meet wonderful new people. This sweet family recently moved across the country. Everything came together perfectly for our sunset in the park. We had a beautiful evening with the sunlight shining through the trees. Jenae rocked her flower crown and showed me her favorite spots in the park. And how perfect is mom's dress twirling in the rays of light? 
 

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER AT SUNSET | CARMELLA + NATALIE

Natalie had a vision - to capture the bond she shares with her beautiful doll of a daughter, Carmella. Everything came together perfectly for our sunset in the field. The fall light danced through the tree line and this mother and daughter duo twirled and blew bubbles with George Ezra music playing in the background. That was until I found out Carmella is a Beyoncé fan, so we switched it up. ;)

I am forever grateful when given the opportunity to capture a vision and fleeting moments of life.

BERKELEY | SUNSET IN THE FIELD

Berkeley celebrated turning one with photographs in the field at sunset! She is the sweetest little girl and such a princess - she even wore a crown. This was the first time she experienced bubbles, and she was in awe! Thank you to Berekely and her beautiful mother for the opportunity to photograph this special time.

ELI + FAMILY | NEWBORN LIFESTYLE

This family = family goals! I was so impressed with how Aundrea and Michael manage parenthood with such ease. They welcomed the cutest little guy, Eli, to their family. Eli's siblings, Samuel and Hazel, were an absolute joy to spend time with! They built a fantastic pillow fort while I was there, and I enjoyed a private concert from Hazel. She's quite the performer! 

Photographing a family in their home is such an intimate experience. I love how the images will always bring the family back to not only the day the photography session took place, but remind them of other memories that happened within the walls of their home. 

Eli is lucky to be part of this special family! I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to photograph him during his first week.

INDUSTRIAL STYLE | THE FOLEY FAMILY

A smile filled my face so far my cheeks hurt, and my heart filled with joy. That's how I felt when I received a text from Teigan after sending her the gallery of images from their family session -

"Jenni, these are incredible. I cannot thank you enough! This is ten million times more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!"  

We spent a rainy evening together running through empty halls, peeking through oversized windows, dancing with bubbles, story time, and puddle jumping. The girls are free spirits and their awesome parents invited me to capture this fleeting stage of their lives.

"Some people feel the rain - others just get wet." The Foley family embraced our rainy evening and weren't the least bit worried about getting wet. Letting go and embracing the elements makes for the best memories.
