Charleston, SC Photo Session: Kirby Family

Emily and I met in 2008, a year after I moved to Charleston.  We became quick friends and have been through lots together!  We were roomies for a few years, started our businesses around the same time and it’s been a joy to watch her and Martin raise sweet Camille!  I mean come onnnnn…. just look at that face.  She turns me into a puddle.

October Mini Session Highlights!

Here are some photos from my second round of mini sessions this fall!  We met at Smythe Park on Daniel Island.  This spot is a little hidden gem!  Beautiful light in the morning and not as busy as some of the downtown locations.  I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a good spot for family photos!  (Just watch out for the gators) 🙂

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: Thomas Family

2018 has been off to a slow start with the crazy snow storm and a case of strep throat for me (boo).  But I’m back and wanted to show you some photos I took in the fall before heading to New York for Christmas.  You want snow??  You should have come home with me 🙂

Meet the Thomas family!  Such a genuine and joyful family.  And little Miss Eliya is just the sweetest thing!  This was my last shoot of 2017 and a great note to end on.

Charleston Mini Shoots: Fall 2017 Highlights

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!
