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

A glimpse into my week:

Heather and David were married in SC this past weekend and I can't wait to share all of their fun details... These images were taken at their reception at River Hills Country Club~ It was beautiful and gave way to an incredible back drop...

I always enjoy shooting in St. Augustine~ and you can never go wrong anywhere around the Casa Monica Hotel... Loved that this old jaguar happened to be parked and ready- almost like it was just waiting for us! Be on the look out for Anthony and Tressa's wedding coming up soon! It will be gorgeous!

Thanks to my friend Kristen for her help with this session- it was so much fun getting to know her even more! (Adore you my friend!)

What I am working on (among other things...)

Angela & Wil~ The Alumni Center in Monroe, LA (My childhood best friend... We were best friends from 1st grade and into high school until I moved to Carolina. All I can say is Dirty Dancing and Footloose...) I heart you my friend and pour out so much love and happiness to you and Wil- You are so beautiful and perfect together!

Baby S~ How sweet... Jen and Jason your girls are beautiful. It has been so much fun getting to know you and I look forward to more time together! Thanks for trusting me and allowing me to be a part of your wonderful family.

Lindsay and Lee are so much fun and are so full of life, love and laughter~ Lindsay and I have been trying to get this shoot together for a while now and I have to say that God has perfect timing... (blown out flippy flops and all!) Thanks for being such a blessing to me for all these years my friend! Love you guys so much!

Carolyn & Stephen... St. Augustine Engagement Session

Loved their session..Though it was quite chilly, they didn't once complain about it- they just jumped right into the session with both feet and had fun until the last frame was shot!

It was my first visit to the St. Augustine Lighthouse~ and worth the drive for anyone wanting something different to do. The staff was wonderful and knowledgeable and I will definitely be back soon.

You are both so wonderful and I am so proud to call you friends! Many thanks (and I can never say it enough) to my amazing friend Wes Lester for all of his incredible insight, ideas and help. Enjoy! ~S.

Engagement Session ~ Jacksonville, FL Kristen & Lewis

And the slide show... The more I edit and get into these images, the more I absolutely love them! They are just so much fun! Gorgeous you guys are together! Enjoy!~ S.

Jacksonville Engagement Session ~ Carolyn & Steven

Just a sneak peek~ I promise more is to come later.... but how adorable are they! Wes and I headed down to St. Augustine with Carolyn and Steven last weekend and normally it takes a while to warm up and get a flow going- so when my first few images of the day became my favorites I have to question my theories of photography over the past few years... They very easily were able to let the world (and cameras) drift from around them and really were the only two people in the world... That is a very beautiful definition of love my friends ~one that is full of God and one that puts the other first. I always say that if you put God first in your marriage, everything else will just fall into place.... yours is so simple but it speaks so loudly. I love you guys and am so proud to be part of your very special day. Enjoy! ~S.

Kristen & Lewis

Meet Kristen and Lewis... Fun, playful and simply adorable are they. Anytime you plan a shoot you think and talk about how you "want" it to go.... the reality of how it turns out is always quite different. This was just so- different but definetly better! The Russell House was built in 1875 and is full of old world charm. They could not have chosen a better location- every thing about it was just perfect. A huge thank you to Ty and her family for taking time out of their day to come and let us shoot and to Bailes for assisting me. I hope you enjoy the images... I can't wait to dig into the rest of them- we have so many fun ones to go through. ~S.

Kelly & Jacob~ A Fun Engagement Session

I am having so much fun with this slide show! A group of us friends/photog buddies came together to play with some lighting techiniques and came up with some really great images of Kelly and Jacob. Thanks so much Ron and Meghan for sharing your images with me!. You guys had some awesome shots! I love how we can all be shooting the same exact subject and have a completely different view and perspective. It is exactly why I don't shoot weddings alone... that and I love having a friend to work with for the day... Hope you enjoy it guys~ I certainly am! ~S.
