Okay.. mostly all of us these days have a mobile phone that has a pretty decent camera on it. We carry these things around everywhere and see some pretty cool things and say…”oh! I wish I had my camera!!!” or experience a really cool moment and think… “I wish I could freeze time and stay here….”  I must admit, I am guilty of the same. I am guilty of not ALWAYS carrying a big honk’n, expensive DSLR  around.  However, whether I like it or not, I always have my cell phone, and at the very least, I am mindful to snap away with it when the opportunity arises.  Sure, they aren’t GREAT quality, but  I think taking a picture does kind of freeze that moment and you can look back on it days, months or years later and be reminded of it… whether it be a beautiful sunset, or a great time/feeling you’re having with good friends… Next time you are having a good time or just see something you think is awesome, pull that phone out and get a pic… you’ll be happy you did.

“The Week In Mobile” is just shots we have taken during our week that we want to share with you. This first post is more like a few weeks in mobile but you get the idea. More to come! Have a great day!

PINIMAGEPINIMAGEThe Week…in Mobile

1. Downtown Aiken, SC..I was trying to walk off an extremely stout beer..an hour of browsing at an Antique store did the trick…

2. Amy and her sister=Great lunch company… visiting them in Aiken, SC.

3. From Aiken to Emerald Isle. My brother took us Kayak fishing several times. We had some really good times on the water.

4. Two knuckleheads… Me and my brother Nathan…

5. My girls love the beach.

6. Another kayaking excursion.. We had to carry/drag the yaks at low tide, then paddled them out at high tide.

7. Finally home… Our garden was busy while we were away. Cucmber anything anyone?!

8. The SC heat in full swing… it’s hard to blame the kids for not getting outside to play when the heat index is 100+. Advantage, Ipad…

I met with Jenni to discuss their engagement session prior to the shoot and she mentioned she wanted to have the session in a quaint, cute town.  She did not want to go to the usual spots…downtown Greenville, Anderson, etc.  We came up with downtown Pendleton and I think it provided a lovely location for a variety of shots.  It was an extremely hot day…one of those high 90′s and heat index well into the 100′s.  We kept to the shade as much as possible, kept a hand towel on hand and even took a break to enjoy some ice cream!!   I think Jenni and Larry did a fantastic job, considering the heat!!  I had a wonderful time with Jenni and Larry and look forward to their wedding in December!!  Hope you enjoy!  ~Amy

Yes, yes I know it is only August 1st.  But, I am here to tell you now is the time to start thinking about your Fall family session.  Last year was jam packed with clients who all utilized their beautiful pictures as Christmas gifts.  What could be a better gift than a thoughtful photo or album to give to your parents, grandparents, best friend, etc.  We typically book a month or so out this time of year, so we thought we would go ahead and share our promotion for the Fall season!!  We can not wait to work with you and hope you are having a lovely Monday!! ~Amy
