Raycroft Art » Photography by David and Amy Raycroft

I was working on a newborn photo session and fell in love with this picture.. So, I chose it as our photo of the week.  It is not posed at all and truly captures a moment on camera that their parents will enjoy for years to come.   I love that Cason is grabbing the chair to carefully lean in and study his newborn sister.   He is so curious.  You really wonder “what is he thinking”?  I love that you can see all of Cora’s face, since it was a newborn session for her.. and of course, the chair!  How could you not love the chair….

Happy Monday to all.. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!! ~Amy

Good morning to all.  I am excited to announce we are offering a unique opportunity to get your photographs made with World Champion Fresian Horses right here in Anderson, SC.  I must say these horses are absolute beauties.  Pictures can not express how awesome they are, you must see them in person.  There are a limited number of sessions available, so do not wait to book your session.  Thanks and have a lovely weekend.  ~Amy

Let me begin by saying, “Wow!  What a wedding!!”  I always love it when I walk away from a wedding and am blown away.   Weddings are about celebrating the beginning of a new couples life and these guys knew how to celebrate.  .  It was so much fun.  I loved their “first dance”… Blake really did an amazing robot!!  Blake and Amanda were married at The Pond House in Starr, SC and it was the perfect day.  They could not have asked for better weather!!  I also love the fact that Amanda and Blake really wanted to make sure we had the opportunity to do “our thing” and we were able to sneak away and capture some really amazing pictures of the 2 of them alone.  I truly believe that is the most important thing a couple can do is make sure they have time set aside during their wedding to sneak away for some alone time with the cameras…Amanda and Blake, you guys are awesome!!  Beautiful couple~  Well, I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!!

  • Rhonda Danner - What a fun wedding! The dance shots make me smile and love the shot of them in the field and by the pond…so pretty!

Ok… Photo of the weeeeyeah right… more like photo of the month…Ahem… our apologies..  This was taken last May… They brought a firetruck to our daughters Spring Fling… and of course in unmistakable Amy fashion, she goes running out in it. The sun setting behind the curtain of water created a wonderful glow…. but this is a different look… I wanted the attention to be less about the beautiful lighting, and more about the subjects literally splashing around in it. They were having a BLAST. Amy included. If you look,  almost every person is smiling…. The effect that was applied on this image forces your eyes to look at what really was happening… the REAL beauty of photography… not the lighting and composition and “style”… but the ability to record in one single image the sweetness of a spring afternoon…. ok… enjoy.. now go run in a sprinkler with your kids…:)

Happy Saturday to all!!!  Now here is a post you definitely do not want to miss.. I thoroughly enjoyed working on these pictures because they were soooo much fun, so full of life and love!!  They both were great in front of the camera and you can really see their personalities from this photo session… Ali, you ROCKED it out and look like a model in these photos….and Hayden is such a cutie (and of course very handsome)!! 

I do want to note to our future clients.. take notice of their outfits.. Clothing really can MAKE a photo and I think Ali did a fabulous job of picking out their outfits!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend!!! ~ Amy
