Charleston, SC Photo Session: Weldon Family

The Weldon crew is a fun bunch!  They’re a tight-knit family who live near each other in upstate SC and were vacationing together on IOP.  We all piled into their van they rented and drove around the Isle of Palms searching out a pretty spot to take some photos. I think we found it!  Their true colors show up in the last few images 🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Stein Family

We had to work around some nasty weather to get this session done but we made it happen!  I had a blast on this fun and playful session – and those handsome boys stole the show!

Charleston Photo Session: Linthicum Family

Luke is ONE!  We got up extra early for a sunrise session out on Isle of Palms to take a few family photos.  Luke made us work for all of those smiles – just keeping us on our toes!

Charleston Photo Session: Gentile Family

This extended family came from all over the world (literally, from locations in the US and New Zealand!) to spend some time together at the beach.  Watching the cousins play was so fun and I absolutely loved their colors!  I think combining different neutrals is so pretty, especially on the beach, so this is a personal favorite of mine – a great example of what to wear on your family photo shoot.

Pups are part of the family too, so why not bring them to your photo session?  Meet Mike, Madison and Primrose 🙂  I love her name AND her under bite!

Charleston Photo Session: Kopcsak Family

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 🙂

Charleston Photo Session: 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!
