Charleston, SC Photo Session: Williams Family

Grandma and Grandpa have their hands full [literally] with their sweet crew of grands!  We braved the bright sun of the beach and made lots of silly faces and noises for the kiddos.  One of my favorite things is to see all the crazy stuff the extended family will do for a smile – family members are the best assistants!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Chung Family

This little guy!  He made me belly laugh through most of our photo session. (I left out the photos of his shorts falling down!)  The Chung family was visiting Charleston from Boston and we visited Pitt Street Bridge and Isle of Palms for our session to mix things up and include some different backgrounds.  At the end of our session Matty melted my heart with, “The next time I see you, when you come to Boston, we’ll take pictures together.  I have a blue camera with yellow buttons, it’s a rectangle!”

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Isle of Palms

These families gathered on Isle of Palms to celebrate a special 50th wedding anniversary!  (And come on, how cute is this couple!?!)  We took a few “boring” posed photos up on the boardwalk before heading to the beach to play!  Because… you can see how things end up once the kiddos hit the water 🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: King Family

These photos were a birthday gift for their mama, such a good idea! This group gathered at Folly Beach from Ohio, Michigan, Denver, Phoenix and Houston so I think she was happiest with just having her whole family in one spot 🙂  And to get some snuggles in with her grandson, of course!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Ballew Family

Here are images of Connor and Aiden on my FIRST photo session with them at 18 months old.  ❤   The following photos are from our recent on the beach for their 4th birthday! We had a blast jumping, running around, playing in the sand and getting SOAKED.  Is this really my job??

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Cannon Family

Mom and Dad have their hands full with twin three year olds and a one year old! The Cannon family escaped the cold up north and headed to Folly Beach for spring break.  We arrived on the beach right before sunrise for our session.  As the sun rose the little girl lost interest in me and pointed at the sun saying “ooh, look!!”  As you view the images you’ll see the light change from pink to yellow during the session.  The kiddos did great!  Bribery at it’s finest!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Reed Family

I so enjoyed my time with the Reed family!  They were referred to me by some friends who live in Charleston and I’m so glad it worked out!  Sometimes when I ask siblings around River and Lincoln’s age to touch or be love-y they make faces and are resistant.  (You know, because cooties.)  But I was pleasantly surprised when they worked it for the camera!  Such sweeties.  We had a good time running around on the beach at Kiawah!  I love my job.   🙂
