Photos with Friends | McLaughlin Family at Rainbow Row

What a treat this session was!¬† My very best childhood friend (since we were like 3 years old!), Dana, and her family came to Charleston over spring break in March.¬† We met near Rainbow Row one morning to capture some updated family photos.¬† It’s fun to photograph people that I know so well because we have inside jokes, it’s easy to get them to laugh, and I know if a smile is genuine or not.¬† The other great thing about photographing friends?¬† Grabbing a meal together afterward. ūüôā

New Photography Location: Fox Trot Plantation

I am now offering sessions with a “country feel” just an hour and 15 minutes outside of Charleston in Lone Star, South Carolina.¬† Lone Star is close to the town of Santee.¬† Fox Trot Plantation is a private farm with acres of forests, fields, peach trees, old barns, and even chickens!¬† In October, the cotton fields are ready for harvest (and photo opportunities!)¬† So if you’re looking for something different for your family photos, consider a day trip to the country.

A Folly Beach Engagement | Anna-Morgan + Greg

High-school sweethearts, Anna-Morgan + Greg, wanted to have their engagement photos taken at the far east end of Folly Beach, near the Morris Island Lighthouse.  They fought sand gnats and the threat of rain, but were blessed with a dreamy sky and perfect lighting.

Sophie’s Bat Mitzvah | Charleston, SC

Charleston Bar Mitzvah Photographer (35)

It was such an honor to photograph Sophie’s Bat Mitzvah at Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim in Charleston in December.¬† Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are some of my favorite events to photograph.¬† I grew up going to Temple Israel in Columbus, Ohio where I became a Bat Mitzvah in 1993.¬† KKBE is also a Reform Congregation so being there was familiar and comforting and I look forward to going back!

Sophie, congratulations to you on a job well done!  Your family and congregation are so proud of you, and it was a joy to be a part of your celebration!
