“For She Is More Precious Than Jewels”…………………Greenville Newborn Photographer

For she is more precious than jewels…Proverbs 3:15

I have the absolute best job! Introducing new babies is such a privilege. Today’s post is such that…a privilege to introduce Miss Surett Maxwell Langley to the world! She is a gorgeous, blue-eyed baby girl! She is named after her Great Grandmother! Oh how I love a tradition like that! I think the above scripture says it best, because she is a jewel in the eyes of everyone she meets!

Take a moment out of your busy day and enjoy the precious gift God has given to this family!

Welcome to the world, Miss Surett!



Senior Prom & Flower Girls………Greenville High School Senior Photographer | Spartanburg High School Senior Photographer

I would love to think this next stat isn’t true but alas…it is! A mere 23 years ago, I went to Senior Prom with my friend Michael! OH MY GOSH! Is that right? 23 YEARS????? I remember when I found that dress! I LOVED it; it was the perfect shade of red with just the right amount of sequins! HA! I remember the store in Brookwood where it was purchased! I remember the strap on my dress popping off and mama having to sew it back on before we left the house! Why did it pop off? Because I was trying to pull my dress down because Daddy said it was too short! (Telling me the day of prom was a bit late, right?) I also remember being so thankful it wasn’t raining! I mean…no girl wants to have her dyed-to-match shoes get messed up, right? I still have that red dress! I am sure the shoes are somewhere too! And, of course I still have my memories!

So, what does my 1992 Senior Prom have to do with anything? Especially the flowers girls in my wedding? Well, the little flower girl on the left is my friend Madeline. Madeline was ‘sort of’ my first baby! She is the daughter of one of my best friends, Becca. I loved everything about Madeline! I still do! I loved giving her a bath, babysitting, feeding her, taking her to Chilis for chips and salsa….you name it, I LOVED it! And of course, I LOVED shopping for her! And tomorrow night…is her first PROM! Let me re-read this….its her first PROM! Wow! I have no idea where the time has gone! Somewhere between playing ‘Rockin’ Elmo’ with her in her bedroom and taking her out to eat, she has grown up into one special, and gorgeous, young lady. I am so proud of her and I REALLY, REALLY wish I could be there to watch her get ready, watch her mama shed a tear or two and watch her walk out her front door to make memories she will have for a lifetime!

I Love you, Mad!



Miss Makenzie Reynolds….Class of 2015 // Spartanburg Senior Photographer | Greenville Senior Photographer

A mere 23 years ago, I graduated High School! REALLY doesn’t seem like that long ago! I remember how excited I was; wondering what life would hold for me! Fast forward 23 years and I would not change one thing about where I was then, and where I am now! This is my desire for any High School Senior but especially this sweet young lady! Today is Monday and the beginning of a new week! As you begin this week, pray for those High School Seniors who will begin the rest of their lives as young adults! Pray for sweet girls like Makenzie!

Makenzie-Congratulations on your Graduation! Make the best of everything and enjoy the process of continuing to grow, learn and experience life! I am honored to have taken your Senior images! Thank you so much!


Terra & Devin………Spartanburg Engagment Photographer | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer

Enjoying this weather spring gives us is one of my most favorite things to do! I love the breeze I feel and the color I see! I also love photographing an amazing couple amongst the warm breezes and bright colors! I met Terra and Devin in downtown Spartanburg this past Sunday and we had the best time getting to know one another and taking amazing Engagement Photos! These two will be getting married in August and I think they just might be ecstatic about it! Ha! They were a dream to work with and I can not wait until August to see them become the latest Marian Ashley Photography, Mr. & Mrs!

Enjoy a few of my favorites…..okay…A LOT of favorites!
