Robben Family

I usually have sessions with little ones that I’m chasing around but here’s a recent shoot I did with some big kids!  They were very good listeners and I didn’t have to chase them to get a good pic 🙂  I hadn’t been out to this place on Folly Beach in awhile, how beautiful are these trees on the beach!?

Folly Beach Wedding

I had the privilege of assisting Kelsey (Kelsey Farnham Photography, Greenville) with a wedding she photographed on Folly Beach.  Jacob and Savannah were the sweetest people you’ll ever meet!  I got to hang out with the guys while Kelsey spent time with the girls.  They definitely kept me entertained!

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Thursday 🙂

Byrnes Family (and friends!)

This session is so special to me!  I met Kaylis 12 years ago at a Young Life camp in Georgia.  We worked there for 3 weeks during the summer of 2004.  She’s from Mississippi, I’m from New York.  We clicked and kept in touch for a little while after camp, then just a bit through Facebook.  A few weeks ago I got a message from her asking if I’d take photos of her family and friends at Folly Beach… Um, YES!  It was so great seeing her again and catching up, not skipping a beat after 12 years.

Clark Family

This summer I’ve really enjoyed taking photos of families who have met together in Charleston for vacation!  The Clark family was great to work with and it’s so apparent through the images how much they care for each other.  Feelin’ the love!Clark_SM-1Clark_SM-2Clark_SM-3Clark_SM-4Clark_SM-5Clark_SM-6Clark_SM-7Clark_SM-8Clark_SM-9Clark_SM-10Clark_SM-11Clark_SM-12

Shoot Locations

Charleston is not lacking in the beautiful scenery department.  If you’re trying to decide on a location for your session take a look at some options below where I’ve done shoots!  If you have a good lighting situation going on at your home we can do our session there.  The only shoots I do indoors are newborn sessions (and I’ve done those outdoors as well).  We are, of course, not limited to these locations but I hope they will help guide you in the right direction.

Andrew & Sarah

Photo sessions with friends are the best!  I met Sarah over 7 years ago after we both moved to Charleston. We are both yankees who found ourselves in Charleston and clicked when we met.  We’ve been roomies and co-workers and at one point both at the same time.  I’m so happy that she and Andrew met and are getting married in September!  Love the way they look at each other in these pics 🙂

Daniel & Katie (Thor, too!)

It was a perfect night at Folly Beach for a photo shoot with Daniel and Katie.  Their pup, Thor, joined us, too!  He doesn’t even know his world’s about to get rocked when their sweet little girl comes along soon!
