Chloe

This little beauty queen holds a very special  place in my heart. In fact she is like my 3rd daughter… love, love, love her! 

 We had SO much fun at this session. Chloe was full of sass and it made the photos from this session even better than I expected! I was even able to capture some cute “blooper” shots :) .

Here are a few of my favorites, but I tell ya Chloe made it hard for me to decide. This girl ROCKED this session and there was not 1 bad photo :) .

I saved the best for last….

I wish you the best of luck Miss. Chloe and I hope you win every crown!!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend!

Silhouettes {Walhalla, SC Photographer}

Silhouette artist Patti Rishforth will be back in the studio on October 20th.

This visit will be a little different than her last two visits because she will also be offering full figure silhouettes as well. Below are samples of the full figure silhouettes… too cute!!! 

She also offers custom made jewelry, frames and ornaments.

The traditional style like the one of my daughter Allie are $30.00 per child and the full figure ones are $45.00 per child and if you incorporate an additional item (like the train, etc.) each item is $10.00 extra. So you feel free to be creative with the full figure style silhouettes :) .

 Be sure to message me to reserve your spot!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!

Blessings,

Lezlie

Remember these are hand cut silhouettes by a silhouette artist!!

Angel & Rob {Westminster, SC Wedding Photographer}

I had the honor of photographing Angel and Rob’s wedding day. This wedding was extra special to me because this is the location of my wedding 15 years ago. Wow the memories that flooded my mind while I was photographing the events of the day. It seems like yesterday I was the bride.

Here is a collection of my favorites from the day.

Congradulations Angel and Rob. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!!

Blessings,

Birchmore Kids {Walhalla, SC Baby Photographer}

These three sweeties are the winners of the free session I gave away at my open house last month.

 My life has been crazy the last  couple months and I never took the time to blog about the open house. Between owning my own business, working a full time job and most importantly being a Mom and wife…well lets just say crazy is an understatement :) .

I had a wonderful turn out at the open house and gave away over $200.00 in free stuff. I want to say Thank You to everyone who came out and showed your love and support and to those of you have been by my side over the last two years. I have the best family, friends and clients!!

This session was a small challenge since in my opinion the three month session is the most difficult.  I loved the challenge and since these three are so cute they made my job seem easy :0.

Here are my favorites from the session.

Blessings,

Lezlie

Emerson Turns 1 {Walhalla, SC Baby Photographer}

 It’s hard to believe that Emerson is already 1!! Where did the year go?!?!

Look at how much Emerson has changed in her first year!!

Like I have said before I always photograph my baby club babies in the same prop in the 3 major milestone sessions (newborn, 6 months & 1 year). I love this idea because it really shows you how much a baby changes in their first year.

This little girl stole my heart from the first time I met her and I can already say I plan on photographing her wedding on day :) .

I had the honor of helping Emerson celebrate her 1st birthday at her party. She was surrounded by family and friends that love her and I think it is safe to say that she had a great time!

Here are a few of my favorites from Emerson’s 1 year session. 

 Happy Birthday sweet girl!!!

 

Blessings,

Lezlie

Upcoming Events {Walhalla, SC Photographer}

Important information about upcoming events between now and the end of the year

2012 is slowly coming to an end. I can’t believe it is already August!!

Below is a list of things that are happening in the studio.

October 20th Silhouette artist Patti Rishforth will be back in the studio. This is the perfect time to come and get some one of a kind Christmas gifts. Patti offers not only silhouettes but ornaments and jewelry as well. This is the weekend of the Octoberfest so you will also get to enjoy some yummy food and shop from local stores and vendors. Don’t forget that I offer gift certificates…They make great stocking stuffers :) .

Fall mini sessions will be November 3rd (if needed I may add another date). I am SO excited about these sessions!! If you have already contacted me about booking one of these sessions I will send you a message soon with all the details :) .

Santa will be in the studio on November 24th & 25th. Saturday is almost booked solid but there are still spots open on Sunday. This is the same weekend as the Clemson/ Carolina game so for those of you who will go to the game you will probably want to book a spot on Sunday since Saturday morning is full.

Weekend dates are booked for the rest of the year except for a few Saturday morning session that will have to be in the studio. I still have some weekday afternoon spots open if you need to get those family portraits taken in time for Christmas.

The last day to order prints and have them back in time for Christmas will be December 7th.

I can not thank you enough for your support and continued business!! I would not be where I am today without you!! You guys ROCK!!!

Be sure to message me to reserve your spot for one or all of the upcoming events :) .

Blessings,

Lezlie

Rylee Turns 1!!! {Walhalla, SC Baby Photographer}

Rylee Turns 1!!!!

I have always worked with kids in some degree since high school and I am the kind of person that gets attached to “my kids”. So this blog comes with a heavy heart today :( . I am going to miss photographing this sweet baby doll every three months. Thankfully our families are good friends so I will still get to see those beautiful blue eyes :) .

I take photos of my baby club babies in the same prop in at least 3 of the 5 sessions they have with me. I love this idea because it shows just how much babies change in a year. Just look at how Rylee has changed!!

Happy birthday sweet girl!!

If you are expecting be sure to check out my baby club packages. I have several for you to choose from and I would love to be your photographer :) .

Blessings,

Lezlie
