It’s not hard to guess why this session is one of my favorites. Unless you’re not a dog person. In that case, kindly exit out of this blog. Just kidding, please stay! Make yourself comfy and pour yourself a hot cup of joe (or chilled pinot) because there are multiple reasons why this session is […]

Emily + CJ’s Puppy Packed Session

Okay, confession time. I used to believe I lived in the most boring, unphotogenic city to be a photographer. Where is the lush, overgrown greenery? The colorful wildflowers? THE MOUNTAINS?! It’s true, Columbia is pretty flat and metropolitan, but I’ve come to appreciate that these characteristics make the city beautiful in its own right. Not […]

Explore SC: The Lady + Fern Studio

I’ll be honest with you guys – I’m feeling a little brain dead in terms of writing out a full blog post as of late, but I also hate just leaving ya hanging. I haven’t consistently updated my blog in a while and while it’s something that I want to get back into, I’m not […]

New Brand, Who Dis?

I caught myself wondering what a wedding registry may look like if it were created specifically with self-isolating/social distancing due to a pandemic in mind. Thus, a blog topic was born! While this list shouldn’t […]

My First Experience Documenting a Home Birth

Well, it’s here. The day I’ve been low-key planning since my baby shower (nope, not kidding) – Layla’s first birthday. I cannot believe our baby girl – no – our toddler girl is one year old. “It seems like only yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital” sounds so cheesy to say, but […]

Celebrating Layla’s First Birthday

Even after my first post addressing the pandemic, I still didn’t think I would be starting off so many posts mentioning COVID.
