Buchens

It’s always a perk to work with friends!  I met the Buchen family 10 years ago shortly after I moved to Charleston.  The first time I went to their house I was there to babysit and remember feeding Luke while he sat in his highchair (cue tears)!  I’ve spent Easter and Thanksgiving dinners with the Buchens, it’s always nice to have a family away from home!

Thomas Family

2018 has been off to a slow start with the crazy snow storm and a case of strep throat for me (boo).  But I’m back and wanted to show you some photos I took in the fall before heading to New York for Christmas.  You want snow??  You should have come home with me 🙂

Meet the Thomas family!  Such a genuine and joyful family.  And little Miss Eliya is just the sweetest thing!  This was my last shoot of 2017 and a great note to end on.

Finley & Emerson

This is the third time that I’ve photographed Finley and Emmie and every time gets better!  They always come in the cutest outfits and have the sweetest little personalities.  I don’t even have to bribe them to get the shots I want!  🙂

Tart Family

Had a great time with the Tate family at Washington Square in downtown Charleston.  How cute is this brother sister duo?  It seems like he will always be protective of his little sis ❤

Toscano Family

There are just so many things I love about this session.  The light, the oaks, Finona the bulldog, and the smiles on those kiddo’s faces!  This is the third time I’ve worked with the Toscano family and I feel like the photos just keep getting better!  Go visit them at their restaurant Le Farfalle in downtown Charleston, you won’t regret it 🙂

Rains and Reagans

I had the opportunity to work with the Campus Outreach families again.  There was an addition to each family since the last time I photographed them!  COFamilies-1COFamilies-2COFamilies-3COFamilies-4COFamilies-5COFamilies-6COFamilies-8COFamilies-9COFamilies-10COFamilies-11COFamilies-13COFamilies-15COFamilies-16COFamilies-17COFamilies-18COFamilies-19COFamilies-20COFamilies-21

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 🙂
