The 2014 Fall Switcharoos Children Consignment Sale Spartanburg

I’m at it again…buying awesome clothes and shoes for my kids at awesome prices! The Spartanburg Sale opened today for Volunteers! I am thrilled to show you a few of the MANY items smart consignors have for you to purchase! Of course there are clothes and shoes. But have you thought about toys, books, games, bedding, nursery and home decor, sporting equipment, home goods….truly the list goes on and on! Christmas is less than 18 weeks away! Do yourself a favor and go to the Spartanburg Sale this weekend! And, don’t forget about Half Price Sunday. If any item states ‘Discount: Yes’ on its tag, you will be able to purchase this item at 1/2 off on Sunday! It’s a GREAT deal!

Below is the information but feel free to check out their website and their FB Page!

Switcharoos Children’s Consignment

It’s My Fave….

I can’t believe its that time again! The Fall Greenville Switcharoos Sale is going on NOW! Trust me when I say, you DON’T want to miss this sale! If you need anything from Maternity to Pre-Teen clothes, equipment, home/nursery decorations, crib mattresses, etc….YOU CAN FIND IT HERE! This sale kicks serious butt when it comes to stretching a dollar! And, if you missed signing up as a consignor this time around, sign up next time! GREAT pre-sales are a HUGE perk to consigning with Switcharoos! Trust me…having a garage sale to sell a few of your items will NEVER bring the volume of shoppers like this sale does! Be a smart mom and consign, and SHOP, with Switcharoos!

A HUGE thanks to my sweet Claire for being a model for me! She rocked it! (She gets it from me! Ha!)


An Afternoon with the Kimbrells

The Kimbrell family and I met one afternoon for their family session! I knew we had captured precious images but until I actually went through each one of them, I didn’t know just how precious they would be! I LOVED seeing the interaction between Samuel and his two younger siblings! Madeline’s big brown eyes are mesmerizing and don’t even get me started on how squishy sweet Doc is! Those pudgy feet of Doc are to die for! I truly enjoyed every minute with this family! Their dynamic is relaxed, casual and a family full of love!

Thanks Cricket! Your family is precious!


Waiting on Baby Henry….

My friend Rachel and I had so much fun at her maternity session this past Saturday! She is a photographer’s dream come true! She NEVER complained about the heat or climbing stairs for me! She allowed me to try different shots and remained looking refreshed and GORGEOUS the entire time! She is a mere six weeks away from meeting the new man in her life! Henry Lewis is due September 10th! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from her session!

A HUGE thank you to her sweet mama for joining us and helping us!

I can’t wait to meet Henry!


Mr. Jake Suppiger – Class of 2015

Remember being a High School Senior! I sure do! I remember thinking…’This is it! I have finally made it to where the rest of MY life can start!’ The innocent anticipation of the rest of your life is a great way to describe a Senior’s High School year! There is so much excitement as you live in each moment and so much anticipation as you think about the ‘what ifs’! Congratulations Jake! This next year of your life will be extremely exciting, memorable and simply awesome! Enjoy every step you take!
