Welcome to Life Stories...

Welcome to My Life's Story! Mine is made up of so many wonderful people-purposfully woven together! Everything we do is with and for each other and I am so glad that you have taken the time to stop by- so grab your favorite cup of coffee and Enjoy!

What I love most: my family, my friends, my son's giggles when he thinks he is getting away with something... great conversation, anything with a good title, bold coffee, anyone with a zest for life, exciting and fresh ideas, anything crafty, getting my hands dirty, dancing in the rain and weddings! (all weddings!)

I am happiest: when I can share what I see through a lens. Just as there are no two people alike, neither are views on life. I strive to uniquely photograph any event or person so their style can easily be seen.

"Life Happens... Picture it Boldly!"

Would love to hear from you~ If you would like to leave a comment feel free or email me at

Ciara & Zane~ Engagement Session ~ Charleston, SC

Yes, I have spent a lot of time in Charleston recently- and have made the most of it while there on two seperate weekends. There is just so much you can do with a session in any given part of Charleston. And to be honest when Ron and I were trying to decide where the best area would be to shoot Ciara and Zane, I think we were a little surprised when we literally did not have to go more than one building over in any direction from where they were staying at the Mills House Hotel. The area is just gorgeous!

Thanks so much guys for coming down, I really enjoyed our time together and can't wait for your wedding in a few weeks. A special thanks to my dear friend Ron for your incredible eye and the very tasty dinner at my fav. hangout in Charleston- Hymans Seafood.... Enjoy and I'll see you soon! ~S.

Chris and Missy~ Charleston, SC ~ Weddings

I have always loved going to Charleston and distinctly remember my first trip to Charleston when I was just 14. I am in love with the city more today than ever~ With its southern hospitality and charm being everywhere you look along with incredible architecture and history, what's not to love? So when Chris and Missy asked me to shoot their wedding I was more than excited! Theirs was a dream wedding ~ Beautiful Carolina blue skies, a slight breeze and love in the air. The festivities began on Friday evening aboard the Spirit of Charleston for a dinner boat cruise around The Charleston Harbor (and a spectacular dinner might I add.) And it only got better from there. Many thanks to my friend Kelly for coming down from Charlotte to help me out. I thoroughly enjoyed your day and am honored to have been a special part of it! Enjoy! ~S.

Morgan Stamper ~ Senior Session

Meet my cousin Morgan... She is graduating this year and I had the priviledge of shooting her senior session this weekend past in St. Augustine. What a great time we had boucing around the city just catching up and of course trying out fun ideas. It seems no matter where you go around St. A there is always a great spot waiting to be shot! Love ya cuz and can't wait to get these to ya! All of them are so much fun- of course it is easy when you are this gorgeous! And a special thanks to our very willing biker friends who helped us for some fun shots! Huggs~ S.

The Wilson Family ~ Jacksonville Family Photography

After having chatted with Debbie on the phone a couple of times I was excited to meet with her and spend some time shooting her and her family. And how adorable is Kendall? She was the best baby ever and has the best smile. It was such a nice afternoon for a shoot- it was cool, breezy and beautiful. With weather like that you can't go wrong anywhere you choose to shoot. We began at the Ribault Club and had hoped to enjoy some of the grounds around the house but a wedding was about to beging so we opted to use some of the other beautiful scenary before heading to Talbot Island. Enjoy the sneak peek and I can't wait to get a slide show together soon. Thanks for trusting me and spending the afternoon with me. ~S.
