A gathering place for moms in Upstate South Carolina
Hi Maryeah! You should contact Amber McDowell. She's one of our members. She's a local photographer. I've looked at her website before, and she's fabulous! Here is her website http://www.ambermcdowellphotography.com/
I completely understand what you mean about liking someone's photos, but not knowing how people are to work with. Especially considering they will be taking photos of a newborn. You really have to work around their schedule, and you never know what you're going to get. For my daughter's newborn photos, she never opened her eyes. Slept the whole time. But they were still really sweet. We did some "family portraits" when she was about 4 months as well. But Amber is a mom, so she will definitely understand how to work with kids! Good luck!
I found out about Stacy Cotheran from on this site. Her web address is http://stacycotheranphotography.com/
She has lots of sample photos on there, is very reasonably priced and gives you the CD with the photos on it. She is just a super nice lady to boot. We used her for our son's 1 year old photos and they are beautiful!
