Isle of Palms Beach Session | Baxter Family

Charleston is feeling more and more like a big city, but for those of us that have lived here a long time (I’m approaching 20 years!) it feels like we know most folks or know someone they know.  About halfway into this session, I realized I had met my client before.  We discovered we had mutual friends through my grad program at the College of Charleston!  Charleston – still a small town. 🙂

I met the Baxter Family at their rented beach house on Isle of Palms.  It’s so nice when extended family can get together for a week and document their time with a beach session!

Beach Sessions | Folly Beach & Isle of Palms

Family beach sessions are booking quickly this summer!  I’m excited to see some returning clients who rent beach houses at Folly or Isle of Palms every year and some new folks too. 🙂  Info: Beach sessions take place the hour before sunset (around 7ish depending on the date).  I can meet you at your beach house or another location.  I keep a couple dates open each week in case of rain.

Here are some photos of past year’s beach sessions:

Isle of Palms Family Photos |Leong Family

I love when extended families meet at the beach for one magical week each summer. The Leong Family gets the same beach house on Isle of Palms every year.  They always take a family photo, but this year they went all out and hired a pro.  🙂

Beach Maternity Session | Peyton

Beautiful Peyton is due next month!  She was such a good sport, laying down on the wet sand and twirling all over the beach, but it was so worth it for these gorgeous shots!

Folly Beach Family Photos | Montanaro + Riley Families

Almost every summer since 2010 my friends, Katie and Bo come to Charleston to spend a week at Folly Beach.  The trips started with just the two of them and now they come with their little one in tow along with siblings and grandparents.  This year’s family photos at the beach were so much fun.  Gabe is now a year old and full of smiles and laughter.
