Bet Bet here, taking over the blog.  Ok.  I may be in big trouble.  Maybe even fired.  Here’s the thing.  Brooke and Walt get their wedding pictures just before leaving on their honeymoon.  They get a brief look, and I get a copy (hee hee).  So….. what’s a Bet Bet to do???  I HAD to make a slideshow!

Brooke and Walt, please forgive me.  Andrea did such a wonderful job on your pictures, and I love so many, and so many people have been waiting for a peak….I just had to.  Your day was so incredible.

So here are a few of MY favorite pix Andrea & April took 🙂

Sometimes I need to take on personal projects to inspire and challenge myself.  Get out of my comfort zone, so I can continue to grow as a photographer.  I have had many requests for Couples Boudoir Sessions.  “Coudoir”.   I was not at all comfortable with the idea at first, and turned away many couples.  It seemed like it would be very difficult to capture true intimacy like that …… scary.   On Monday, I did my first Coudoir test shoot with my good friends Candace & Adam.  They made great test subjects 🙂  We did not have as much time to play as I wanted….it just got dark too fast.  I have more ideas after this shoot, and am excited to try them.  I know what I did right, and things I would like to change next time, but am happy with the results of my first try.

Yes.  I am now offering Couples Boudoir Sessions!  Yeah!!

Love doing women’s Boudoir so much, and am so anxious to get this going!  This is not only a extremely romantic gift for a couple…..it will also be an extremely romantic experience.  

Thank you Kip for allowing me to use your bed on the beach, and to Cameron for doing a beautiful job with hair and make-up on Candace.  She looked awesome!

If you are interested in a Coudoir Session, please contact me.  Here are a few pictures form my test shoot.  Please….let me know what you think!  I wanna hear.

I am so excited about my promo video, and can’t wait to hear what you think!  Please leave me a comment, and let me know…..

I can’t thank Thomas from Hart to Heart Media enough for creating this promo for me.  Anyone who has seen a video created by Thomas, knows he’s a genius!  He has a unique view of the world, and it clearly shines through on his work.  Stop by his website, and see for yourself.  There is a reason he has been named Best Filmmaker in South Carolina by The Knot for 3 years in a row!
