Studio Mini Sessions | Columbia, SC

Most of my photography takes place outdoors, unless it’s a sweet in-home newborn session or something similar. (Or a wedding venue with an indoor reception, of course.) But I had an idea to do a day of mini sessions in a studio-like setting and MAN…I am so glad I did! I’ll be doing these every […]

Spring Mother’s Day Family Mini Sessions | Wavering Place

I also knew that meant I needed to schedule these early because by the time the middle of April gets here, all the blooms disappear. I knew Wavering Place […]
