Amberly B. | Glencairn Garden

I love a good life celebration.  I’ve mentioned in my client blog posts before that you don’t have to have an occasion like graduation or a family to take professional photos.  Just celebrating another year of life and yourself is more than enough reason.  So I was elated to get a message from my cousin Amberly (affectionately known in our family as Fruit) indicating she was about to be 30 and wanted to celebrate her birthday with a session.  We decided to shoot half of her session in beautiful Glencairn Garden, which is stunning with flowers in full bloom this time of year and the other half of the session in Old Town.  She told me she’d be wearing a tulle skirt for her session and that she’d gotten her hands on a fabulous balloon as a prop, but that I had no idea what I was in for when she stepped out of her vehicle in glittery gold high heels!

Women are super resourceful when we put our minds to something we want to accomplish and Amberly is no exception.  During our session she told me about all the DIY stuff she’d done.  We follow each other on social media so I knew she could work her hair/makeup situation out on her own, but when she told me she made, yes MADE, her tulle skirt herself I was super impressed!  Her look, from head to toe, screamed ‘Life is a celebration!’  I love that she was so playful during our session.  We caught up on our current life events and just had an overall great time during our session.

The second half of our session called for a wardrobe change (still in keeping with the floral/spring theme) and took us to the streets of downtown Rock Hill.  As a self-professed Selfie Queen I had to get a couple of shots of her behind the phone lens.  We finally finished at the gorgeous fountain which made for a serene backdrop.  Spending an hour with her was so much fun and I’m happy she is bringing in a milestone birthday with a bang!
