Charleston, SC Lifestyle Photo Session: Joy

Every once in awhile I get to be creative in a different way and photograph something other than families!  I drove to what felt like the middle of nowhere, SC (My phone service dropped when I got close, ha!) and spent some time with Joy Pitner at her home.  Joy is all about her family, hospitality, food, homeschooling her kiddos and Jesus.  And sharing her wisdom with others!  We spent some time in her garden and I learned more about chickens than I need to know!  It was fun to hear their vision for their land – different projects and plans for meals outdoors with friends and family.  Follow her Instagram account @joy.pitner where you’ll see some more photos from our session (and her own) paired with her content!

Charleston, SC Head Shot Photo Session: Ashley

Ashley was our contest winner and received hair and makeup before a head shot session with me!  Rachel and Natalie are the dream team and we always enjoy working together.  If you need your hair styled or make up done for an event or wedding these are your ladies!  Ashley was so great to work with.  We connected on our love for true crime podcasts 🙂  She is beautiful inside and out and worked it for the camera!  She and her best friend Katherine have a fun Instagram account called @CharlestonUnknown.  They explore Charleston and report back and on all the fun, food and fashion they discover.  Check them out!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Felicity’s Graduation!

Felicity is a rock star!  She is graduating from the Charleston School of Law.  I was happy to take a few images of her to commemorate the moment!  We found out we’re from podunk little towns in New York about 30 minutes from each other.  Her boyfriend Nick is a yankee too and acted as my trusty assistant before joining Felicity for a few photos, too.  Congratulations, Felicity!
