  I’ve been wanting to photograph at the Old Sheldon Church Ruins for a long time, and I was so excited to not only to have that opportunity, but for it to be an engagement session! I met Ashley for coffee last week and was immediately so excited for our session on Saturday. The weather held out for us and we had nearly 2 hours of shooting…even some after dark! These two were naturals, and


HILLIARD

Last Friday I had the joy of experiencing another Marine Corps family day and graduation. I may have just been the photographer, but I still felt all the feels!  The excitement of the moto run and the rush of people running to hug their loved ones for the first time in months cannot escape you! This time it was even more special. After the graduation ceremony, we walked over to the Iwo Jima Monument where

This pretty girl came all the way from Belgium and met me in Pennsylvania for her senior portraits! Our moms were childhood friends, but Lexie and her parents have lived abroad for nearly all of her life, so this was our first time meeting! Her family has a house on Conneaut Lake. This house has been a special place that they visit as often as they find themselves in the states, so naturally it was

It’s always exciting to get hired for work in my home state! Not only did I schedule 3 other sessions while I was in the area,  I had the opportunity to spend time with family and friends which can be a rare blessing in the military lifestyle. Though it was gloomy and often rainy while I was home,  not a single shoot had to be rescheduled–God is good!  On the day of the wedding,  it

I had an awesome client share my travel plans with her Facebook friends and I am so thankful, because it allowed me to meet this sweet high school graduate and get some awesome photographs of him before he heads off to Carnegie Mellon University this fall! This is Austin, and he was so much fun to work with! We made lots of silly faces and poses, but I will spare him and leave those out

This family traveled from all over the country to vacation here in SC to celebrate their parent’s anniversary. To surprise their parents, the 4 siblings scheduled a session for their entire family. What a sweet idea! We toured around Fort Fremont and then ended our session on the beach with the kids playing in the sand! Here is a taste of their sweet session!          Subscribe to my blog to get notifications


SINGLETON

Since I moved to Beaufort (again), I made a lifelong friend. This friend also happens to have a little boy the same age as my daughter, so naturally they are best friends too! The last time I took family portraits for the Singletons, Jason was a grump!!! So, we scheduled a mini shoot just for him yesterday and we managed to get some big smiles!  Thank you for cooperating this time Jason! Thank you for

Parris Island Storm Front

Jul

  Family photography, weddings, and engagements pay the bills, but I can’t resist a good landscape.  Two nights ago I heard the thunder calling my name, and rushed out to get some photographs. Capturing lightning is one of my favorite things, and I did it. These are probably my two favorite South Carolina landscapes I’ve taken. Framed prints are available for sale, email me at www.amr.photodesign@gmail.com to purchase. Don’t worry, portraits and events will still pay the bills, so

 Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet The Clarks I love Google. A few months ago I was contacted by a woman from Michigan about doing her family’s photos on a beach in South Carolina while they vacationed-all because of Google. With the closing of the beloved Hunting Island, I had to go out and explore other options for a location and I’m so glad that I did! I scoped out Fort Fremont and immediately fell in

  Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet Quinn I found this really nice men’s dress shirt at a second hand store about a month ago. So of course I bought it…and cut it up…and made Quinn a dress out of it. I had no idea what I was doing and didn’t have a pattern, but unbelievably it resembles a dress and somewhat fits her! She looked pretty cute and the flowers were blooming, so it was

Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet The Singletons It is hard to make new friends with every move, but we got lucky with this family! Not only do they have a little boy the same age as our daughter, they are just plain awesome. It’s nice to have someone you know you can count on.  And also to have someone to drink wine and cry through This Is Us with. So glad we have this family

Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet Baby Frances & The Goodmons When my husband was stationed in Raleigh, NC, I was beyond blessed to have received a job as a nanny for the Goodmon family. They became our family away from home! They welcomed us not just into their home, but into their lives with open arms. I was there when they welcomed their 3rd baby boy into their home for the first time and

Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet the Shoemakers 6 years ago my husband was deployed to Afghanistan and met a lifelong friend. That friend stood by my husband’s side on our wedding day 5.5 years ago, and shortly after, we were introduced to his future wife. What a fun time in our lives…we alternated whose house we would spend the weekend at, and we would just enjoy each other’s company (and good food, wine, and

Family Photographer | Beaufort, SC Meet Tristan So we have these awesome neighbors…Brandon fixes my car when I put transmission fluid in the wrong reservoir. And Alicia got me started running at the beginning of the year and motivated me to keep it going…can you believe I’m still running 3 days a week pretty much every week? I know. I can’t believe it either. So anyways, they are amazing and I owed them big time for


Happy Halloween

This Halloween I embarked on a new journey–making my daughter’s Halloween Costume. I found a pattern and sewed the dress–my first attempt at making clothing. Definitely a challenge, but it was a success. Then I found a youtube tutorial for the cape and made it too! This was more of a challenge, but I love how it turned out! Check out this photos below of my sweet Quinn in her Red Riding Hood costume. Of


Brantley Wedding

Oct

After a stressful evacuation for hurricane Matthew and then a return to the destruction that the storm left behind, I wasn’t sure what the effects would be on this couple’s wedding day. Hilton Head suffered quite a bit of damage from the storm, but luckily the venue, a private beach home, was unscathed! As I drove through Palmetto Dunes to the venue, it was very obvious that the storm hit the area hard. There were


Drivere senior session

Aug

Baby Drake isn’t a baby anymore! I cannot believe he is going to be a senior this year. It’s hard to believe he is out touring colleges, when it seems like just a few years ago that he was born! I loved watching him grow up and it is special to be able to talk to him now as an adult. I can’t wait to see what great things he accomplishes as he moves forward

Flash back four years ago and I was taking senior photographs of Steph’s older brother Jeffrey. Steph’s mom contacted me a few months ago and asked if I could come back to Pennsylvania to do Steph’s senior photographs too! I’m so glad it worked out! Steph is an athlete and she loves her Nike athletic shoes, but she is also pretty like her Momma! I love this family and enjoy driving back their lane to
