Charleston, SC Photo Session: Parrish Family

There are just too many freckles and pigtails and all around cuteness for me to handle from this photo session with the Parrish family!  We had a perfect evening at Waterfront Park in downtown Charleston for this fall mini session.

Charleston, SC Photo Session: White Point Gardens

Here’s the first of my fall mini sessions I did this year!  These brothers are so cute together!  It was fun seeing them all interact – I had lots of dancing and crazy faces happening behind me to make the others smile 🙂 Subscribe to my email list or follow me on Instagram to find out whenever I’m doing mini session!  (Email subscribers find out first!)


Charleston, SC Photo Session: Thomas Family

We got the perfect night at The Battery in downtown Charleston for this photo session!  The littlest of the three littles had been woken up mid-nap for our session (uh-oh!) so she took a hot minute to warm up (resulting in lots of photos of everyone else first and a family photo with her covering her face!)  But after some patience and using my bag of tricks (seriously – a frisbee with a skateboarding hamburger, ha!) we got some smiles!

You know what changed the game for this photo session?  This dang frisbee I carry around in my camera bag.  Kiddos think it’s funny that a hot dog is riding a scooter.  I busted this thing out then we turned a corner resulting in lots of smiles from Farrah!

Thanks for following!  I would love to work with you and your family!  Feel free to visit my website to see more of my work and contact me with any questions or to book!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Rains and Reagan Families

Each year I photograph the Rains and Reagan families back to back which allows for some overlap time to get images of the whole crew and allll of the kids together!  Last year one of them ran away from the kiddo shot in tears so I think this year was a step in the right direction!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Esoldo Family

Ben has always been a super joyful, energetic kiddo who keeps me on my toes at every session!  He did great at this shoot – I LOVE the ones with him and his parents individually.  Their fun and silly sides came out!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Collins’ Cake Smash!

Collins is ONE!  And to celebrate we photographed her smashing a cake.  Although “smashing” is a strong word for her.  She was very dainty about it!  Collins was one of my most expressive little newborns and not much has changed!  And that last photo of her in a cake coma…!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Norvez Family

Anna wanted some backgrounds that were different than where she lives in Brooklyn.  I think we accomplished that here!  We had our session at two of my favorite places in Charleston – the spanish moss covered trees at Hampton Park and Folly Beach.  Maxine did an amazing job hamming it up for me!  Side note: it’s the first session I’ve ever seen a dolphin (swimming) AND a shark (caught by someone on the beach, yikes!)
