Taylor Family

The Taylors have a trademark photo!  Three years ago I took this image as part of their family photo shoot.


No one in the family actually wears glasses.

You’ll see a repeat this time around for their latest family photos!  Love working with this fun family 🙂


Thanks for visiting!  If you need some photos done before the holidays contact me and we’ll get a date on the calendar!

Fall 2017 Mini Shoot Highlight Reel

Many of these families wore their fun fall clothes to their shoot.  Little did we know it would be 85 degrees and HUMID.  They were all troopers and I had so much fun capturing these moments for Christmas cards!


Teddy’s Newborn Session

How adorable is this little peanut?  Teddy did a fabulous job modeling for me.  And he has a super cool space themed nursery 🙂

You may decide that you’d like more shoot time or images than a mini shoot allows.  If so, simply email me and let me know that you’d like to schedule a standard session instead which includes…
-About one hour of shooting time
-Location and date of your choice
-Outfit change (optional)
-At least 35 high resolution digital images

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 🙂

Oropeza Family

The Oropeza’s saw what this crazy Charleston weather is like in the summer.  We postponed our original shoot for the next day because it was going to storm.  It didn’t.  Instead it rained during the time we re-scheduled the shoot for :/  Thankfully, they stayed at a beach house with a great porch and we got the job done!

Carter’s Newborn Session

Sweet Carter ❤  I had the privilege of taking maternity photos for Shayn and Kelsey back in May at Isle of Palms.  Here is Carter lookin’ all kinds of cute before I left for vacation last month!  I love the image with their cat looking on; Kelsey’s hoping they’ll be buddies.  Fingers crossed! 🙂
