A Little Surprise…

I know I haven’t been as active on the blog or on the JMP Facebook page much here lately and believe me, I have reasons.  January & Febraury are my slow months because of the weather, right after Christmas, not as many bookings during this time of year.  So, I’m looking to book things more this coming month and through the summer to make up for the fact that I won’t be available during the Fall.  Why?  Well…let me explain.

Ya see……..well, I don’t really need to explain.  I can just show you.


YES!  I am pregnant!  I am due at the beginning of October and my family is so very excited.  :D

This also explains why I have been so absent on the JMP Facebook page.  The struggle has been real with this morning (or all day, at times) sickness, lol.

So, what does that mean for JMP?  Well, that means, unfortunately, no fall shoots.  I will most likely stop any/all bookings around mid-end of August, depending on how the pregnancy goes.  If I feel like I am able to continue shooting past that mark, I’ll announce it.  BUT!  For now, I am going to booking everything from now until mid August.  I may start back up in mid-late November, but like I I said, it all depends on how the pregnancy goes and how well I recover.

SO, with that being said, any/all shoots will be done this spring and summer.   And speaking of this Spring, I have planned my next trip to Kentucky!  If you are indeed interested, please contact me regarding booking as my spots are extremely limited due to the booking of a wedding and my personal time with family.

I want to thank those of you who already know about the pregnancy, and have congratulated and said such kind words to David, Hailey, and I.  We are so excited to be adding another member to our family and cannot wait for this next chapter in our lives to begin :)

The Gale Family – Simpsonville, SC

When I first spoke to Mary about this session, I was beyond excited.  She showed so much joy and happiness to have me to come to their home and photograph their beautiful family.  After I got there, I was greeted with puppy loves and giggles from the twins, Emily & Matthew, and Andrew their big brother.  Andrew is four years old and the twins are two years old.  Talk about a handful! Haha.  But these kids were so full of life, so happy, and so well mannered.  Tickled me when they would ask the twins a question and they would lightly just say, “Yessssss”.  It was just so dang cute.

The Gale’s live on a beautiful five acre farm so…who wouldn’t want to take advantage of getting photos there?  The day was full of unexpected turns as they usually do with small children, and we just went with the flow.  I was SO dang lucky to have their nanny there with us that day because she was able to keep the kids smiling and laughing when mom and dad were in front of the camera with the kids.  So yeah….she rocks :P

Here are just a few (okay, more than a few, lol) of my favorites from my day with the Gale Family :)

The Rowe Family | Milliken Park – Spartanburg, SC

I’ve had many clients over the years and a quite a few have been returning clients.  This little family has let me photograph them for the third time now and I could not be happier than I was when we done the shoot.  And I have to say, this one has been my favorite of them all.  Not only was little Jonah so happy and smiley this time, but the little booger had those two precious bottom teeth!  And he was also crawling and sitting up, growing up so fast since I had last been with the Rowe’s.  I absolutely adore working with this beautiful family and I’m so excited to finally getting to blogging their session.

You can view their previous sessions HERE & HERE.

Let’s just cut to the chase and look at some of my absolute favorites from their session :)

Jonathan & VeLora – Fall Engagement | Kentucky

One thing I love about going home in the fall?  The trees, the cool weather, just…..ahhh.  Down here in SC, we don’t get as pretty and colorful of trees for as long as Kentucky does.  And it photographs so well and it’s just simply one of my favorite times to do shoots, ever.

Jonathan & VeLora, I immediately jumped up and wanted to do their engagement photos once it was announced they were engaged.  VeLora is also my cousin, so you know I had to hook a sister up!  Plus, she is SUPER gorgeous and who would want to miss the opportunity to get photos of this beauty?  And I also went to school with Jonathan, so we all worked together very well.

VeLora & Jonathan had only been engaged for a few weeks whenever we done their engagement session and so in love.  Jonathan proposed to VeLora at Cumberland Falls in Corbin, KY.  If you’re a local in our town, you know Cumberland is the place to be when it comes to proposals, fishing, and camping :P  Continue reading

Hannah – Senior 2015 | Kentucky

I’ve mentioned it before, and I’ll say it again…I’m starting to love senior shoots.

It’s not something that I am use to, but I do love a challenge, and we all need a good one every now and then, right?  But this one is different because Hannah is family.  She is actually the sister of Dylan (SEEN HERE) whose senior photos I done back in 2013!  If you can’t see the difference, you may need eye glasses because yeah….you’ll see, lol.

We could’ve easily shot for another hour or so.  Hannah was so dang photogenic and so easy to work with.  I can totally see why we’re family, lol.  And the location was at her grandpa’s (my great, great uncle) farm, which is where we done Dylan’s senior photos as well as an engagement shoot (which you’ll see soon :D ).  We all love this place as there are so many memories from when we were younger, plus…it’s just pretty to look at, haha.

Here are some of my faves..even though I had to narrow it down to 8, lol.
