Charleston Photo Session: Kretman Family

This was such a special shoot and a first for me!  Krista emailed me to schedule a photo session on Folly Beach.  At one point during the planning she found out she was pregnant so they decided to wait and tell Izzie at our session to get her reaction!  I was so excited for her to find out!  She’d been wanting a little brother or sister 🙂

Charleston Photo Session: Gentile Family

This extended family came from all over the world (literally, from locations in the US and New Zealand!) to spend some time together at the beach.  Watching the cousins play was so fun and I absolutely loved their colors!  I think combining different neutrals is so pretty, especially on the beach, so this is a personal favorite of mine – a great example of what to wear on your family photo shoot.

Charleston Photo Session: Issakainen Family

Most of my summer photo sessions are extended families out at the beach.  I always enjoy watching the cousins play and interact together.  When I was little my favorite week of the summer was when my cousins visited us in Syracuse!  I was so sad to see them go every time.  We took these images out by the Isle of Palms pier!  The mornings are perfect when there aren’t too many people out yet (and I may have edited some out of the background….)

Charleston Maternity Photo Session: Isle of Palms

How absolutely beautiful is this mama-to-be?  We got a perfect evening out at 25th Ave on Isle of Palms.  I love so much about this session – the colors, the light, this couple’s silliness and the fact that pretty soon I get to share photos of their sweet girl!

Charleston Photo Session: Esoldo Family

Benjamin always keeps me on my toes!  I’m glad that T-Rex made it in some of these photos.  I think it’s important to include some of your kiddos favorite things at each age and stage!  (And with the magic of editing I can also get rid of it!) Love the images of them playing and splashing in the ocean together.

Charleston Photo Session: Woody Family

Love this family’s colors!  And we had lots of clouds to make for some beautiful, even light.  It was so fun watching the three kiddos play and interact together!

Charleston Photo Session: Black Family

These guys found me online and asked me to photograph their family while on vacation in Charleston.  They celebrated their anniversary and enjoyed the beach with their sweet girl!  Everly did such a great job and was very intrigued by the sand.  Mom and Dad had to stay close to make sure she didn’t eat it 🙂
