I had the opportunity to spend some time with Denise, Sean, Jacob and Olivia on the beach while they were here on vacation. What a wonderful family! They all love sports. Dad is a Giants fan while mom cheers on the Cowboys. Jacob is an up and coming Yankee’s player , and I think Olivia has water sports in her future as she could hardly wait to get into the ocean for a swim! I really enjoyed getting to know them all. Thank you Denise. Hope to see you again in the future!

….and WHILE my BFF was here visiting, we had a few extra minutes to grab some boudoir shots for her. It was so easy, as she is so beautiful. Jenny is a private kinda gal, and will be sharing most of the images with her boyfriend only, but she did say I could show you these.
I will have some more of Jenny’s session on the blog next week.
Honestly…..most of the others are WAY to HOT for the public — Thanks Jen…. you were such a great model! I LOVE your pics! All of them
Yes… my beautiful bride Mandy was ready for a trash the dress session soon after her wedding. Fun, fun fun! They are such an adorable couple! Just look……
Here is some exciting news! Fitness Edge opened up a new Mixed Martial Arts Center in Conway last month. I went out to get some pictures for their website, and wow is it ever nice! Among the many features it has a professional boxing ring, a combat sports competition cage, plyometric training equipment, and it’s HUGE. They are offering over 25 different classes a week, and have some awesome instructors! If you are interested in martial arts, for professional competition, self defense, or to just to get in shape….this is the place you need to go!
The very coolest thing about boudoir photography is how so many women never realized they were THAT sexy! It’s so amazing to be able to show that to them. Most of the time when they see how beautiful they look in their boudoir images, they are ready to share them with the world! I often get phone calls asking when I am going to put their images on my website! However, there are also many woman who choose not to share their images. I never post a boudoir image without permission, so I don’t always have new stuff to show you.
To me, sexy shows little more than you will see here in Myrtle Beach on the beaches. Sexy is about the posing, the lighting, the attitude, the look in a woman’s eyes. It’s about an implication. And what woman does not want to be able to look sexy?
I haven’t posted any boudoir lately, so I thought I would show you one of the sessions I did a few months ago. Shante’ is a very beautiful women, and I loved her session! We had tons of fun, and she got an amazing little album Here are a few of my favs:
I really enjoyed my session with Chris and her beautiful family. With her mother, sister, brother-in-law, and niece and nephew in town, it made for some great family pictures! Thank you Chris!!
Since I started my business in 2007, it’s been a rare occasion that I have been able to escape for a few days of vacation. My BFF Jenny lives in Seattle and designs jewelry (watch Zales for some of her new stuff coming soon). Last year, we decided we both needed a bit of R & R, and it had been far too long since we had seen each other in person! So we left Charleston on a 5 day cruise headed for the Bahamas last week.
We were soooo ready for this adventure…and were not disappointed.
Ahhhhh. Sunshine, beautiful blue water, no phones ringing, a massage, girly talk and a few Carnival Cosmo’s made this trip exactly what we needed. It was near perfect.
So. We get back and are ready to head out for a nice dinner with my boyfriend Walt, and much to my surprise right before dinner he gives me this……
….and in case you haven’t heard yet, I said YES!
Every now and then, someone will catch me off-guard in a big way. So it was with Jennifer & Pedro’s wedding. I love photographing weddings, and am always very excited to get there and get my camera out…. but from the moment I walked into Grande Dunes Members Club on May 30th, I knew I had been caught.
Both Jennifer and Pedro have chosen the difficult life of serving our country in the military. Pedro recently returned from a 15 month tour in Iraq. Not all the soldiers in his unit did. Every couple expects, and deserves, for their wedding day to be about nothing but the celebration of their love for each other, and the new life they are starting together. Jennifer and Pedro chose to share their day, honoring the friends they have lost, the friends who have served, the friends who also have given up so much to keep us all safe. Never before at a wedding, have I wished the speeches would not stop, for each one was a story well worth hearing. This my friends, was a very emotional day for me, and all who were lucky enough to be a part of this day.
In addition…..if was also a SUPER fun wedding! They played a kissing game during dinner that had everyone laughing hysterically. They also played a great version of the Newlywed Game…..the fun was unending! Pedro is a clown and Jennifer is such a great match to him. I know their lives together will be filled with laughter!
Jennifer, Pedro, It was a great honor for me to be able to record this day for you two. I hope I was able to capture part of the emotion that you made us all feel
