Natalie H. | Columbia, SC Blogger Session

I always have a blast when I get together with Columbia, South Carolina mom-blogger Natalie of Freely Nat.  And I know I say that with every blog post that I write about our time together, but it’s honestly so true.  She always gives me something fresh and fun to shoot and this day was probably our best so far!

We started our session in downtown Cola (aka Columbia aka Soda City) at the new, trendy hotel Hotel Trundle.  The minute I walked through the doors I was in love!  The environment was just so much fun and the staff was amazingly accommodating.  We had a blast shooting in their lobby area and checking out a couple of the rooms as well.  I definitely suggest staying here during your next visit to Soda City!
After we wrapped up that portion of our session we strolled down the street to the Nickelodeon Theater which has become somewhat of a landmark in the area.  Fun colorful shots were the goal for this portion of the shoot and I definitely think we nailed it!

We ended our session by including Natalie’s beautiful mother and daughters in the session.  We started out grabbing yummy snowcones and walked a little further to our final shoot destination.  Now that I’ve known Natalie for some time and have gotten to meet her boyfriend as well, it was only right that I meet the rest of the people that are so instrumental in her life.  It was a fun filled day that I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of!  And if you’re in the Cola area and are interested in a blogging/personal branding session I’d love to chat with you.  Contact me today so we can bring your vision to life!
