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!)

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Serago Family

The Serago clan has a new member of the family since I’ve seen them last!  I got to meet Alexander for the first time on this early morning session at the Isle of Palms pier.  I love this location and time of the day to get that pretty, glowy, yellow light!

Kiawah Island, SC Photo Session: Hark Family

I love the vibe of an extended family session when everyone is relaxed on vacation and the cousins get to play with one another.  Everyone’s happy to be together and my job is to convince the guys that family photos is exactly how they want to spend a couple of hours on their week off, ha!  Love that this family brought beach balls to play with – in 7 years of business that’s, surprisingly, the first time a family has done that!  So your thoughts – does the family photo with the beach balls look like an Old Navy ad??  🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Cowles Family

I’m thankful when early morning sessions force me to get out of bed to enjoy the beautiful beach sunrises!  I can’t think of a better way to start the day.  Arden was not so sure about the strange lady with the camera but by the end of our session we got some sweet smiles!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Williams Family

I so enjoyed talking music and getting to know the Williams family (+ Carly’s bestie, Faith!)  I wish my parents brought my best friend along on vacation when I was in high school!  It’s a great plan for a photo session because Faith could pull some genuine smiles out of Carly 🙂  This location on Folly Beach is one of my favorite spots in Charleston!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Rider Family

This family braved some wind and a looming thunderstorm (with some crazy lightning!) to take these family photos of their whole crew on vacation together at Isle of Palms.  Some were dainty about splashing in the waves and others ended up soaked from head to toe!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Folly Beach

The members of this family don’t take themselves too seriously.  It was so fun watching them all interact, running after the little ones, making each other laugh, splashing in the water.  They just have FUN together.  Which makes for some really fun photos! (And a good ab workout for me during our session)  🙂
