Portrait sessions are my absolute favorite. I worked with Carly to create a dreamy, folklore inspired session. We were channeling “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac before it became popular on TikTok.
What Carly said about our unique and dreamy portrait session: “Alexis is such an amazing photographer and extremely welcoming to work with! Sometimes I can feel awkward in front of a camera and Alexis guided me through the entire process and made me feel super comfortable!! She was timely, responsive, and incredibly professional.”
Portrait sessions give me the chance to really capture someone for who they are. Carly is sweet and soft. I felt like her session needed to capture that. We have worked together before, with her as the makeup artists, but this was the first time with her in front of my camera. Photographing Carly was a DREAM, just like our dreamy portrait session turned out to be.
Her pink floral dress and brown felt hat felt very 70s Boho to me. Using a blurry and dreamy effect, we were able to capture a vintage vibe for her summer time portraits.
Carly was ready for an adventure, understood the vision of our shoot, and was perfect in front of the camera. She is a local South Carolina business owner herself, a “skater ran business for those who shred!”
Please check out her shop here.

I love creating images from a session that truly capture who you are as a person. I see Carly in these images, and if you know her, I hope you do too!
