Kendall Ross is an incredible chef based currently out of Charlotte, NC. He's a Charlotte native, but I say "currently based" because Kendall just got back from cooking on tour with Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper and is scheduled to go on tour with Ed Sheeran early 2018. Kendall is being featured in the culinary magazine, Sizzle, and asked me to take some photographs of not only him and his food! Not only was this shoot a blast, but I tried octopus for the first time (tastes like chicken, LOL) AND got to hear the inside scoop on what Rod Stewart is really like!
Here's some shots we snagged, and here's the magazine article for a better read on Kendall
Christine, the girl boss of all girl bosses, the queen of all freckles, the slayer of all things fleek. This girl is a top notch human who is also a photographer. It was my privilege to spend an afternoon taking pictures of this beautiful soul.

Who wouldn't want to hangout with a cute boy and a cute dog at the river all morning? Such a great day shooting with fellow photographer William Reed and his newest pal, Finn.
Narcisse is a local florist and floral designer. Last week we had some fun taking a few professional headshots for her. Just snagged this random strand of ivy and didn't have to look any further, isn't it crazy how pretty people can make even the simplest of things beautiful?

Daniel White is the only human I've ever met who can out sass me. He is unassuming, yet full of spunk, creativity, and genuine kindness. Yesterday he interviewed me for his podcast with Amplifier Zine, FREE PIZZA - a platform for creatives. Daniel took a few shots of me to go along with the interview and I couldn't just stand around and not photograph this stupid amazing smile!

We just spent 4 days on an island and I don't think anything could've been better. My good friend Brooke and I drove down to Tybee Island in Georgia this past week and spent a few days in seclusion making art, and another few days shopping the streets of downtown Savannah with our TOGOSAS in hand. How much better can life even get? Here's a few pictures I snapped along the way.
I love these photos for a lot of reasons. ONE Amanda is amazing, beautiful, and radiates freaking sunshine, and TWO we changed locations literally thirty minutes before we scheduled to shoot because I found this ridiculous roadside tipi and THEN we found this glorious green forest behind a residential neighborhood in Huntersville NC. HOW CRAZY!
Shoutout to flexible clients, Greenway Events for the gorgeous flower crown, and Benny's Yard Art for letting us snag some pictures with this great tipi!
Explored the South Carolina Mental Hospital that was built in 1821 by Robert Mills. The lunatic asylum is said to be haunted, and gives off the most eerie vibes imaginable. It's almost like life just came to a sudden hault inside the buildings. The grounds of the hospital seem never ending, almost as if you were in another world. You walk into each room and you can feel the life that was once filling that same space. I love photographing and exploring spaces like this because it's like a little peak into the past. Take in these rooms, the muted colors, and the bizarre items I found inside!
Selena is a gorgeous senior who is about to head straight into the fashion industry. She has such a passion for style and class it made me want to go shopping after our shoot! I always love heading to the lake to photograph, but this shoot in particular was perfect with lighting and amazing hair to match. Congratulations on graduating Selena! I expect big things!
Hello all! I'm still alive!
I've been super busy recently collaborating with a few small businesses in the Carolinas. There is something so different about people coming together to combine their talents and creating images that reflect the individual style of each company. I love brainstorming ways for new companies to brand themselves and making photographs to flesh out those ideas. Here are some recent product shots for Mt. Wavy, a Boone based clothing company. Check out their new line and support small businesses!
Sometimes you just need a girls day with pedicabs, seafood, cocktails, and the beach. So thankful for beautiful friends who let me play paparazzi on our road trips.
What a beautiful shoot to kick off 2017 with! Tiffany was absolutely stunning and her flower crown and bouquet made by Greenway Events and Floral were perfect for a winter wedding!
I am thankful:
I am thankful for amazing cheeseballs and the new gold flatware.
I am thankful for a best friend who cares enough to line the table with eucalyptus and make the crust from scratch.
I am thankful for a day devoted to cooking for my friends and being drunk off cider by noon.
I am thankful for new jobs, experiences, and life changes that have all brought us to this point in our lives.
But mostly I am thankful for friendships that withstand state lines and busy schedules.
Cheers to another year, friends! Happy Friendsgiving <3
Taylor and Price have two amazing, smart, and beautiful daughters that were so fun to be around. These photographs can only show a glimpse into the world of love and joy that I witnessed. River spent the whole time running around and collecting rocks to give her parents, while Darcey cuddled in their arms and showed off her sweet little newborn smile. I always love my job, but working with such truly good and beautiful people makes it even easier to love.
It was so great to be invited to shoot a friend from college and his beautiful bride's wedding this past weekend in Raleigh, NC. The entire day was full of smiles and laughter which made shooting totally fun and easy. Congratulations Christian and Jessika! Best wishes! xoxo sarah
