Charleston, SC Photo Session: Moore Family

These little guys are way cooler than me!  We do a family session in the summer then just the twins at Christmas time for their birthdays each year.  Every time they begin a little shy then they bust out of those shells and their big personalities come out!  It’s so sweet to see the bond they have with one another and I just picture them as best buddies when they’re older 🙂

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Johnnie & Barbara

Mr. Johnnie and Miss Barbara’s daughter arranged to have these images taken for their 50th wedding anniversary!  How sweet are these!  (You’ll see their sweet granddaughter sneak in for a few, too!)

I asked how they met and they said they’d grown up near Charleston not too far away from each other but didn’t meet until high school.  One day Miss Barbara got on the school bus and Mr. Johnnie had saved a seat for her.  And they said the rest is history.  She said, “It’s not always the grand gestures that mean the most but the small acts can change your life forever.”


Charleston, SC Photo Session: Felicity’s Graduation!

Felicity is a rock star!  She is graduating from the Charleston School of Law.  I was happy to take a few images of her to commemorate the moment!  We found out we’re from podunk little towns in New York about 30 minutes from each other.  Her boyfriend Nick is a yankee too and acted as my trusty assistant before joining Felicity for a few photos, too.  Congratulations, Felicity!


See more of my work here on my blog or my website!  I’d love to connect with you to discuss a photo session!

Charleston, SC Photo Session: Rains and Reagan Families

Big smiles and giggles at the College of Charleston campus from these two families!  I love capturing the photo of alllll of the kiddos each year.  There was only one who needed some convincing this year….

Charleston Anniversary Photo Session: JT & Rebekah

I’m a little behind on blog posts, oops, but wanted to share these (2nd) anniversary photos of Rebekah & JT!  Rebekah wanted to shoot on the College of Charleston campus and who can blame her – such a beautiful spot!


Gavin & Bailey

How cute are these two??  I’ve photographed Gavin and Bailey 3 times now for their family’s Christmas cards.  We ventured to College of Charleston’s beautiful campus for this shoot and made good use of that perfect golden hour light!
