Just a Few Sneak Peeks!

I am enjoying being home in New England for Thanksgiving break, even though I am not a huge fan of all this cold weather. :P While I've been home I had a few sessions that I want to share with you all! So here are a few sneak peeks from a fun family session and a sweet engagement session.

I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Have a great rest of your weekend!

Maryann :: Just for Fun

This semester I am taking a photography class! Each week we have a different assignment due, and last week we had to do outdoor portraits. I asked Maryann if she would be my model and she was willing to help. Maryann is my boyfriend's youngest sister and she is so much fun! It is never a dull moment with this girl! She is so great and we always have a lot of fun when we're together! And, she is just gorgeous! So, here are a few pictures from our little photo shoot!

A lot of laughing happens when we're together.

Happy Saturday!!! :)

Thankful Thursday :: Week 1

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you all have had a great start to November! Last week I wrote a post about my 30 Days of Thankfulness Challenge. Each day, for the month of November, I am posting a picture on my instagram of something I'm thankful for, and I'm using the hashtag #ecp30daysofthankfulness. I encourage you to join me, even if you didn't start on Nov. 1, I love looking to see what y'all are thankful for too! (yes, the south is rubbing off on me) So here is my first week of thankfulness via instagram. (and until I can figure out a good collage to get these in, I'm doing them individually...if anyone has any suggestions for good collage websites, let me know!)

November 1: Thankful for Starbucks peppermint hot chocolate on a cold rainy day :)

 November 2: Thankful for technology that allowed me to watch the celebrations in Boston even though I'm in SC :)

 November 3: I'm so thankful that we do get the beautiful fall colors here in SC!!! Even if they don't come until late October/early November :P

November 4: Thankful that I am healthy enough to be back at school 

November 5: I'm thankful that I go to school in such a beautiful area of the country!

November 6: I'm so thankful for phone calls with my family!!! Thankful that I got to talk to my mom a lot on this particular day!

November 7: I am thankful for my job. I absolutely LOVE being a wedding photographer! I am convinced I have the best job :)

So there's my first week of my 30 Days of Thankfulness! What are you particularly thankful for?

30 Days of Thankfulness

Happy Friday everyone! Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like October flew by?! I can't believe today is November! Well, with November comes cold days, holiday excitement, Christmas drinks at Starbucks (YAY!!!) and Thanksgiving. And as we all know, Thanksgiving emphasizes being thankful. And this year, I've decided to do a "challenge" of sorts. I am going to do "30 Days of Thankfulness" and my plan is that everyday I am going to post on my instagram something I am thankful for. I am going to use the hashtag #ecp30daysofthankfulness (Elizabeth Charlene Photography 30 Days of Thankfulness...I'm sure you could figure that out but I just thought I would clarify) and I encourage you to join me! :) Every Thursday I am going to do a blog post with the theme "Thankful Thursday" where I will share all my instagram posts from #ecp30daysofthankfulness. I encourage you to post something on instagram every day that you are thankful for with the hashtag #ecp30daysofthankfulness. I am looking forward to see what you all post!

God has really blessed me so much and I know I am not thankful enough for what I do have, so I'm excited to go through this month focusing on thankfulness.

And since blog posts without a picture are boring (duh) here's a picture of coffee. Since I love coffee. :)

Happy Friday! I hope y'all have an awesome weekend!
