Max is ONE!

This is my first sunrise session.  Keith, Casey and Max met me at 6:30am out at the Isle of Palms pier on a perfect morning to shoot Max’s one year photos.  It feels like I just did his newborn photos!  Time flies.  Max was a little newborn; love his chunky monkey thighs he’s got now 🙂

Oropeza Family

The Oropeza’s saw what this crazy Charleston weather is like in the summer.  We postponed our original shoot for the next day because it was going to storm.  It didn’t.  Instead it rained during the time we re-scheduled the shoot for :/  Thankfully, they stayed at a beach house with a great porch and we got the job done!

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! 🙂
