Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
Every now and then I get an opportunity to stretch my photographic muscle and just “play!” It’s so refreshing to not have any pressure to “do well” or capture something specific & just shoot for the pure enjoyment of it.
There is a group that I belong to called The Rising Tide Society. It’s motto is “A rising tide lifts all ships” and it’s goal is to help entrepenuers support one another to grow healthy business. This amazing group of entrepreneurs is nation wide and there are several local chapters through out NC, the closest of them being in Hickory, NC. I’ve only been to a few meetings so far, but I can tell you that these ladies are “in it to win it!” They’re all incredibly passionate, work hard, and love their craft whatever it may be. So it’s an honor to be part of this ever growing group!
Recently, we had the opportunity to get together for a headshot swap. We met in downtown Hickory and spent 2 hours shooting, laughing, and producing some wonderful images! It added a new layer of friendship to this group that is growing ever closer. They’re all so beautiful and I hope my shots do them justice. It was such a joy to capture their glowing beauty! Here’s to all of the #BossLadies that came out to rock it in front of the lens!
Last month one of the photography groups I belong to, Taking Photography, got together and shot each others beautiful faces…luckily with cameras…There is so much fantastic talent in North Carolina and these ladies are not only talented but gorgeous as well! It was a joy to capture their beauty! I even got my mug shot taken by several of these ladies. What a fun morning exploring down town Winston Salem!

Maggie is a student at Appalachian State. She’s bright, kind, and loves LOVE, just like me! In fact, Maggie isn’t just my gorgeous “model” for SBC, she’s my gorgeous AND talented assistant for my 2015 wedding season! I thought what better way to introduce her to all my bride’s & grooms than by doing a Simply Beautiful session with her? I’m super excited to have Maggie on board and I know that everyone is just going to adore her! I must admit I
was am obsessed with Maggie’s gorgeous hair. I just had to break out the fan and play! Thanks for putting up with my crazy, Maggie! 😉
Oh and P.S. if you haven’t seen the amazing video she made for SBC then make sure you check it out below. This girl’s got some serious talent and I can’t wait to help her hone & grow it. I’m also excited to see what shenanigans we get into because you know I’ll be instagraming them all!
Please help me in welcoming Maggie to the MLP family!
Meet my new North Carolina besties, Ariana and Brian! If you follow me in Facebook or Instagram, then you’ve probably see me take numerous selfies with this amazing duo! We’re birds of a Silver Feather! 😉 I just couldn’t resist! The pun was too easy! These guys are the brains, beauty, talent, and just all around awesome behind Silver Feather Studios!
We instantly bonded the first time we met almost a year ago at an end of the season photo party…yes we have those. It wasn’t long before we realized that we all shared some pretty serious geeky addictions (i.e. Dr. Who, Sherlock, Firefly, Divergent, The Hunger Games, and the list goes on and on)! Since then, our friendship has grown as we had our Geeksboro dates with Sherlock, business chats at Crafted, and now Silver Feather have invited me to shoot video with them on some of their weddings! It’s been pretty spectacular working with an amazing team like Ariana and Brian! I am so ridiculously grateful for their friendship and I can’t wait to see where our businesses go now that Ariana is MOVING INTO THE STUDIO! WOOHOO! That’s right, you know what that means, GEEK OVERLOAD ALL THE TIME! *Let the dance party commence!*
Our overall vision is to one day all have a studio space together, can you imagine the awesome that will explode from that space? It’s almost scary!…Almost.
So getting to shoot their new promo pictures for their website was just the icing on the cake. You mean I get to hang out with you more, at geeky location, AND take pictures? Oh twist my arm!
*Sigh* What a perfect day with friends!
Nothing says love like Dr. Who & video games!
That moment when you die in a video game!
Batman approves of this cuteness!
This is Ariana and Brian in a nutshell. I just love this photo!
You guys are just hot, SO HAWT!
Social media swagger!
Work it Tyra! Show me dem smiez!
