Private portrait sessions are an unique and personalized experience. I understand the importance of documenting life's precious moments and I enjoy getting to know your family, while helping you create a collection of images that you will cherish for a lifetime. Portrait sessions include family, children, senior, maternity, engagement and modeling sessions.

Portrait sessions take place on location in Oconee, Pickens, and Greenville counties.  In July 2016, Necessary Photography relocated from Myrtle Beach to the upstate of South Carolina and now serves the following communities:  Pickens, Seneca, Walhalla, Westminster, Greenville, Travelers Rest, Easley, Salem, and Liberty. We are excited to join the upstate community and look forward to getting to some phenomenal shoots in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains! Whether it's at the beach, or in the upstate, we will work together to select a location that reflects your family's interests and personalities. Choosing a location that is near and dear to your hearts is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your collection.

Sessions include individual and group shots and evolve into a fun, interactive play date for your family and children.  My fun, fresh approach allows me to capture those unexpected moments that become the most beautiful and cherished portraits.
