Janet And Her Very Sweet Grand-Kids

Janet Adams makes beautiful AND delicious cakes here in Myrtle Beach.  I have seen several of her wedding cakes, and they are pure perfection!  She wanted to to a session with her two grandkids…. and who wouldn’t?  They are both absolutely adorable!  Not only are they adorable, but they are oozing with sweetness, much like the cakes she makes.  They are both very well mannered and polite children.  I really enjoyed getting to know her grand kids and doing this session for them.  Thanks so much Janet!

Chillaxing at Myrtle Beach

Family beach portraits are very popular for vacationing families here in Myrtle Beach. They represent a time during the year when the stress of jobs are left behind, the worries of studying for tests and fitting in at school are gone, and is often of a time of true family bonding. The phone has stopped ringing, email is on hold, and at last there is time to simply enjoy the company of each other. It’s great to be able to meet these families at a time when they are fully enjoying life – and capture a moment of that time for them! I can’t even imagine how busy life would be with 3 handsome boys, each involved in their own activities and doing their own thing!

Beach Portrait Season

This was such a nice family!!! We had a really great beach session. I get to meet people from all over the country, here for many reasons. They were in Myrtle Beach for a medical convention and took some time out for some family pictures. Thanks Sherri & Adam !!

A VERY Windy Evening!

While Julie, David and their 2 boys were in Myrtle Beach last month for a baseball tournament, they took a little time to get some family pictures on the beach.  Originally from Connecticut, they are now living in Nashville but hope to return to their home state very soon.  Our time on the beach was SUPER windy.  Yup — hair a flying everywhere!  We fought it and managed to get some pictures though…. aren’t they a handsome family?

Beach Portraits

I’m really enjoying beach portraits this year. I have had the opportunity to meet so many different people form all over the country, and get a small glimpse into their lives. I love capturing a good moment in time….when people on vacation are relaxed, having fun, and really enjoying each other. This was from a great session last month. THANKS Amy & family!!!

It's A Small World

This is kinda cool…..I had the opportunity to work with Stephanie, Matthew, Saylor and Tag … a wonderful family here on vacation from Nebraska.  They use to live in Fayetteville, NC when Matthew served in our military, and come back every year to Myrtle Beach for a few weeks.  Well we got to talking, and it turns out they are very good friends with the owners of a restaurant in the town I grew up in.  Hamilton Montana is NOT a huge place – lol.   BJ’s has been there for no less than 30 years….and my sister went to school with the owners…and SHE lives in Fayetteville!!!  Ha Ha.  Small world.Thanks Stephanie & Matthew!  Really enjoyed the session and getting to talk to you!

Some Time at the Beach

I had the opportunity to spend some time with Denise, Sean, Jacob and Olivia on the beach while they were here on vacation.  What a wonderful family!  They all love sports.  Dad is a Giants fan while mom cheers on the Cowboys.  Jacob is an up and coming Yankee’s player ;-) , and I think Olivia has water sports in her future as she could hardly wait to get into the ocean for a swim!  I really enjoyed getting to know them all.  Thank you Denise.  Hope to see you again in the future!

Chris & Family

I really enjoyed my session with Chris and her beautiful family. With her mother, sister, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew in town, it made for some great family pictures! Thank you Chris!!

Lori

One of the great things about being a photographer is I get to meet so many wonderful people!  Lori has the often challenging job of coordinating the events and catering for The Grande Dunes Resorts.  She works with couples getting married at one of the resorts, and keeps their day running smoothly for sure!  Recently her sister and niece came to visit her from West Virginia, and I was able to get a few beach pictures pictures for them.  I really love seeing the people I work with, and getting to know them better on a personal level.  THANKS LORI :-)

Crystl & Chris

Crystl and Chris were recently married, and wanted to have a beach romance session.  We set up an appointment for a few days after their ceremony.   As luck would have it, we got to the beach, and the thunder clouds started moving in :-(    No matter.  These two were so adorable and in love, that we got all we needed in the 15 minutes we had before it started to pour!Guys — Thank you so much!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness together :-)

The Blessey Family

I had a great beach session the the Blessey family. These kids were as great to work with as they are cute…and they were ready for a little beach fun :-) Thanks Lori!! I really enjoyed meeting you and the kids.

Kara And Her Beautiful Family

I got to spend a little time with Kara Stovall and her family recently….and I fell in love.  She has what has to be the worlds most adorable twin girls!  Taylor and Kaylie have beautiful red hair, and could quickly steal anyones heart!  Taylor is the one with the beautiful curls, and she was a happy camper at her very first visit to the beach.  Kaylie however….was not so much a fan of how the sand felt on her feet.  She wanted outta there!  Kara, thank you so much for asking me.  I am soooo hoping you will let me do a session again.  Maybe after Kaylie likes the sand a little better.  I would love to have a ‘play date’ with your girls (and my camera) — lol

Dexter

This is Dexter …. such a happy and wonderful little guy!! Soon he will be capturing the hearts of girls everywhere — I know he captured mine :-) I think very soon I will be seeing Dexter all dressed up, as I am photographing his parents wedding on May 2nd. As adorable as he is, I don’t think he will be ‘stealing the show’ at the wedding. His mama is gorgeous, and I can hardly wait to see her in that beautiful wedding dress! Ashley & Corey are so in love. Dexter is a lucky little guy to have parents who adore him. Thanks Ashley & Corey, for giving me the opportunity to get to know Dexter a little better. I hope to get future play-dates with him :-)
