Logan’s First Birthday

This First Birthday session was simply adorable. Logan is the happiest little thing. He laughed, and smiled right at me… over and over. We found the perfect path with gorgeous light at Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the afternoon than with this sweet family celebrating their […]

A baby girl is on the way and I thought it was so sweet and special that we did their Maternity session on Katherine’s birthday. They had been out […]

Avi is 6 Months Old

Little ones change so fast. Sweet Avi is 6 months old! On the day of her shoot, her mom said that was the best she had ever been able to sit up on her own. So much changes in the first year of life, so why not go all out and document every possible milestone. […]

Fort Mill Maternity Session

Y’ALL… This maternity session was everything (and more) than I ever could have imagined. With every session, the main question is, Where are we going to take the pictures?? I have some of my favorite spots, but I love to explore and make every shoot unique. I was scrolling through facebook and saw a picture […]

Mommy/ Daughter Session at McGill Rose Garden

I was listening to a podcast one day that said photography makes time stand still. Every moment that passes is a moment that we will never get back, and most moments will be forgotten all together. It has made me view photography in a whole different way since I heard that. Pictures capture every detail […]

I got to shoot Jordyn and Garrett’s maternity pictures where we talked about if everthing was ready for Olivia to arrive, the anticipation of her delivery date, all of the unknowns of first time parents. Jordyn and […]

Real People

Compete. Compare. Repeat.

Humans are weird. Especially girls (sorry ladies!! it’s true) when it comes to competing and comparing. We all compete with each other about the most random and insignificant things. Most of it doesn’t matter AT ALL. We want to be the best of the best. We want to have it all together and be noticed. […]

Is this Really Happening

Lately I have been having a lot of these “is this really happening” moments. And it’s in a good way because they are good moments. I don’t know if it’s because I am getting older and I feel like I am still in high school. Or maybe it’s just because these last few years have […]

What Matters

Photo by Jessi Nichols Photography When I was in nursing school, we learned about something called Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. (I included a picture of this so it will make more sense). At the time all I heard was blah blah blahhhh. But now, the older I get and the more I am living in […]

Chloe turns ONE

Roxana and I work together in the NICU, so she had been showing me outfits and props that she had been buying. So I knew this shoot was going to be adorable… but it exceeded everything I could have imagined! For their family pictures, we found the perfect tree in my neighbors backyard. You can’t […]
