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 🙂
The secret is out!…

Email me to schedule your own family shoot!  I’d love to work with you and your family!

Charleston Photo Session: Davis Family

John is ONE!  And to celebrate we took some family photos at Alhambra Hall.  After a few of those we took off his spotless white outfit and had a cake smash!  I think he (and big sis Eleanor) thoroughly enjoyed it.

John only has eyes for his cake.
Big sis taking a taste.

If you’d like to schedule a cake smash with me or just a family session please email me to book or ask questions!

Charleston Photo Session: Moore Family

Double trouble!  Photographing kiddos that are around 18 months old, especially twins, is no easy task!  They’re on the move and they don’t understand bribing yet 😉  Regardless, these two did great and I checked off my workout for that day!

Charleston Photo Session: Sincerely Roxy J Styles

I love working with these ladies!  Natalie is the beautiful lady you see below (and is a makeup artist).  Rachel at Sincerely Roxy J Styles created her beautiful hair style.  If you need a hairstylist for your wedding or a formal event, Rachel is your woman!

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.


Email me to book a session of your own!  For more “what to wear” ideas check out this blog post or my pinterest board!

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….)


Email me to schedule a photo session in the Charleston area!  (I travel, too!)


Charleston Newborn Photo Session: Luke

Another newborn named Luke!  I took big brother Levi’s newborn photos, too!  (The first image is Levi two years ago) Do they look alike??
