CHARLESTON MOTHERHOOD, NEWBORN, & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER Moving to Charleston I still cannot believe our time in Washington in coming to an end and very soon we will call Charleston, SC home.

One year. Tomorrow will mark one year since our son, Caden, was born and my life was changed forever. It was and will always be the best day of my life. I had spent years dreaming of that moment and what seemed like an eternity praying that the Lord would bless us with a baby. The road to motherhood was not easy. We went through a miscarriage in 2014 and that is why I am here today documenting motherhood.
