Little Strawberry Farmers

// Author: Lauren // 0 Comments

In the middle of April, I took ten days off to visit my two favorite little boys in the whole world! My nephews Grasyn & Brayden! They live in the very south of South Carolina & it is a long eleven hour car ride. It been hard seeing them grow up through photographs, phone & Skype calls, and occasional visits, but it makes me appreciate the photographs even more.

While we were there it just so happened that Strawberries were in season. So while Mommy was at work Favorite Auntie (yeah… that’s me!) and Grandma dressed the boys up in their overalls, loaded them in the van then off we went to the Strawberry farm!

Brayden probably ate a dozen strawberries while we were there… and maybe a handful or two of dirt! LOL. he was one messy boy!

No shoes, no shirt, no problem!

Grasyn only held the strawberries and occasionally helped feed them to his baby bro. Awe, how sweet.

Towards the end they finally stopping running for a few minutes and sat down for a photo. I would say they had a ton of fun.

I cannot wait to see my boys again. They are getting so big! It has been two long months so far and luckily I only have to wait three more weeks! Unfortunately, by the time I see them again my little Gray-Goose will already been three years old!!! *clue the tears* Where does the time go?

Soon, I will share our awesome “cowboy” themed photoshoot & I am sure their will be plenty of pictures taken during their visit in July. I sure hope you guys don’t mind looking at tons of pictures of my nephews… it helps that they are adorable riggghhhhht?


Oh & what did we do with all those strawberries we pick? Strawberry Pie & Strawberry Jelly! Mmmmm.

// Author: Lauren // 0 Comments

So I decided for todays post to skip a head for a minute and share my Senior Photoshoot with the always fun Jonathan Edwards. Why? because NOW is the time for all you 2014 seniors to book your session! I have had too many seniors waiting until the school year starts up and then its crunch time. No bueno. These are some of my FAVORITE sessions to shoot. We always have a great time and laugh a ton.

Jonathan and I browsed the back alleys of  Greensburg and I think we laughed more than we talked!

He also had just gotten a sweet new car that we made sure to include! What an awesome “prop.”

A friend *ahemmmm, SheenaAbraham ahemmmm* suggested we check out the train station in town where we captured a few pictures, as well.

Jonathan used a handful of these photos for his grad party invitations. & I LOVED IT! *i also may or may not have an obsession with getting the mail everyday… i am not sure why? its always bills! haha* So it was an AWESOME surprise to find his invite in my mailbox!

& we found a creepy new friend or two in the back allies… LOL

So seniors contact me NOW to schedule your summer/fall senior session. Don’t wait too long, my summer schedule is already filling up and ummm it’s the middle of JUNE already?!?! where does the time go?

& a MAJOR thank you to Jonathan Edwards for asking ME to capture his photos. He is a fantastic photog himself, so it was such an honor. & Congratulations Jonathan!!

PS>> Senior sessions start at just $100! *includes a disk of edited images with print release* SUCH A DEAL!! Spread the word 😉

Noah John – 6 Months Old

// Author: Lauren // 0 Comments

I was so honored when John Noah’s parents contacted me to capture his 6 month old pictures. He was adorable, handsome, and Oh the chubby rolls and cheeks! He made my job easy with his precious smile and amazing cooperation.

His parents were such good sports too. Such a loving and funny family, I have a feeling Noah John is going to be one funny little guy… just like his dad.

Amber & Joel, thank you again for bring Noah John to the studio. It was great meeting and capturing all his cuteness!
