I am a portrait photographer and the owner of Beautiful Soul Portraits in Lexington, SC. I recently stepped out on a grand adventure and left my studio at Rustic Restorations historic house to build a home right in the heart of Lexington with my sweet family. Within this house is my brand new and perfect studio just waiting for you to walk through its doors. If you love a good Farmhouse feel and a breath of fresh air, I invite you to join me for a consultation so we can plan your ideal portrait session.
Being a mom of three children, I relate to and encourage other mothers. My space is a place you can come and be yourself, enjoy some you-time and be pampered. There are never enough hours in the day and no time at all for ourselves. I offer a place of grace and flexibility for meetings, cups of coffee, a glass of wine and down time just so I can get to know you. I know your life is rich with laundry, dishes, dirty precious hands and footprints but you are exhausted. Mothers need to be reminded that they are invaluable, loved and still gorgeous. Lets work together and design a one of a kind session for you and celebrate your beauty. You are priceless to your loved ones and they will look for images of you some day. Want them in your photos too? I would be delighted to have them in the studio too. Sweet little newborns are a favorite around here. After all, they are truly our greatest blessings. Mother and child sessions are some of my most requested ones. 
Beautiful Soul Portraits is a studio where you can both relax and have a luxury experience. With fresh Eucalyptus and peonies on every surface, you can expect a sweet southern charm and elegance. 

My artistic style

My signature style is one revealing emotion and storytelling. Whether it's a lifestyle session or a formal portrait sitting or headshot, I have mastered bringing individual personality to life through my images.

I love light, so I gravitate toward lovely dream-like portraits while focusing in on the beautiful details. I offer a couple different types of sessions options. The first is a journalistic lifestyle feel with minimal posing. These are offered to families primarily and it's just all about you and your family doing life and having an amazing time.

Newborn sessions are offered two different ways. In studio full sessions OR Lifestyle. During full sessions in studion, I use a lot of earthy elements and neutral colors and whites in combination with natural light so that each portrait is clean, fresh and simple. The baby is always the focus. I will try to incorporate special requested items and props that you choose to bring. My goal is always for you to have an incredible experience creating photographs of you and/or your loved ones that will bring you joy for a lifetime.

Contemporary portraits are full sessions. You will be blown away by my professional hair and makeup artist who can make you look and feel stunning. We guarantee you beautiful images that you will want to keep and pass down for years to come.
