Whitacre Family Beach Session

I’ve worked for Susan for about 3 years now, assisting her with her business.  I jumped at the chance to photograph her extended family while they were all visiting Charleston.  I laughed a lot with this fun bunch!  Aren’t they a good lookin’ group?? 🙂

Robben Family

I usually have sessions with little ones that I’m chasing around but here’s a recent shoot I did with some big kids!  They were very good listeners and I didn’t have to chase them to get a good pic 🙂  I hadn’t been out to this place on Folly Beach in awhile, how beautiful are these trees on the beach!?

Raley Family Beach Shoot

I enjoyed spending some time with the Raley family for our Isle of Palms photo shoot!  I can’t help but smile when I look through these fun, playful photos!  How stinkin’ cute are these kiddos?  And the LIGHT… sunset photos are the best 🙂

Klein Family

Three extended families were all vacationing together at Isle of Palms.  We attempted to get EVERYONE together in one shot before I headed to the beach with just the Kleins.  I think it’s the largest group photo I’ve ever taken and a miracle that all the littles were looking at the camera! KleinSM-20

Taylor Family

Here’s one of three families that stayed all together in a big house on Isle of Palms a couple of weeks ago.  I worked with the Taylors (below) Wednesday after shooting the Kleins Monday (photos coming soon!)  When I have my feet in the ocean at 8:30am on a Wednesday I am so thankful for my job.  I get to run around with kiddos on the beach, not a bad gig! 🙂

Washburn Family

This is the second time I’ve worked with the Washburn family while they’ve been here in Charleston on vacation.  I always have a great time with them.  This shoot was bittersweet as Mr. John passed away a few months ago.  I’m thankful we took photos 2 years ago so they have images of fun beach memories with him.  It just reminded me that life is short.  Make time for my family and friends.  Tell them how much they mean to me.

Davis Family Maternity Session

We got a late start on this shoot which on one hand made me nervous because a toddler was involved and would probably be ready for bedtime soon.  But I was also happy because we got some perfect, beautiful, golden hour light right before sunset.  This is why you want to shoot in the evening!  It all worked out with no meltdowns!
