Hi, I'm Kaylie b. poplin!
This is the place that I love to share recent camping trips with my family, thoughts on preserving our stories through portrait preservation and of course, family photoshoots on our renowned 30A beaches. 

Wow. Is 2014 really over already? It’s okay. I don’t mind! 😉 (But more about that in a second.) As I look back on the milestones passed and successes, it slows
it down in comparison.

2014 was a year of
development, firsts & amazing friendships.

I felt like 2014 was a
joyous balance on a thin string, or a journey of learning how to walk on my own
again. There was strength to stand, uncertain times when I would fall, followed
by sheer determination and curiosity that led me to get back up.

In 2014, Kaylie B. Poplin
Photography was published on wedding blogs for the first time- both nationally
and internationally. I discovered new mediums of photography that I fell in
love with. I developed friendships with people in the industry that challenge
me, bring much joy and tons of support.

2014 was a year of
developing the art of styled shoots. It has been so exciting putting together a
shoot of ideas that were mere dreams at one time with incredible vendors.

I learned what I liked
and what I don’t like. I learned what things inspire me and bring out my most
authentic work. I saw small glimpses of the type of work that I am made to create and who
I want to be as a business owner. Actually, I didn’t discover who I was and
what inspires me this past year, as much as I recovered what that is. As I look
back, I notice that growing up I always had a white room, with white décor and florals
splashed around. To this day, those are the things I love. It took a little
rediscovery to realize I have loved those things all along. 

I got engaged in 2014!
(You can read more here!) This was a huge milestone on a personal level and
even, professional level.

Since September, I have
been planning a wedding with my fiancé. For the first time, I understand
engagements and weddings in a whole new way. I have never been an over the top
wedding person. I always dreamed of eloping. Now that I am planning an intimate
wedding- my wedding- and I have a whole new appreciation for the brides that
contact me. I understand where they are and where they are going on a personal level. That has grown me the most. I also have a clearer vision of the
type of weddings I want to photograph. 

There is something about an intimate,
purposeful and meaningful wedding that stirs deep in my soul. There is something
about a couple who is planning more for their marriage than their wedding day,
that I connect so deeply with. Those are the types of weddings that I was made
to photograph.
If there is one word that
I envision 2015 being about it would be the word solidify. 

I believe this year
I will solidify who I am as a business owner, who I am as a photographer, and
who I am as a person. 

Cheers to another year! 🙂
