Mother Daughter Session in Hampton Park

Tayler’s family got her a gift certificate earlier this year for a session with me.  She brought baby Emma, looking cute as a button in the most darling little outfit. We met in Hampton Park, one of my favorite family photos locations in Charleston!

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.

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.  🙂

Family at McLeod Plantation | James Island

I am so lucky that an amazing county park opened on James Island last year!  McLeod Plantation has a beautiful old house, live oak allee, barns, fields, winding paths, and camellias in bloom.  This fall I met Ingrid and her family there to capture some family photos while they were on vacation in Charleston.  Some faves:

Siblings meeting in Charleston | Selaine and her brothers

Selaine and her brothers (and everyone’s spouses!) came from all over the United States to reunite in Charleston.  They attended the Friends of the Hunley oyster roast and took a chance on bidding on a Sarah Goldman Photography gift certificate, hoping they could use it during their short stay in Charleston.

I was able to squeeze them in, and I’m so glad I did.  What a fun group!!

Senior Pictures | Downtown Charleston with Amelia

Amelia is one of my Junior Spokesmodels at James Island Charter High School this year. It’s hard to believe this is the same girl that at 5 years old would come to the dock to watch her dad leave on the research vessel!

Fun Family Session at the Beach in Bonaire | Kats Family

The Kats Family had a pretty exciting 24 hours leading up to this sunset family session in Bonaire.  They had just flown in from a holiday in Italy and their offer was accepted on their first home!  Add to that that they are expecting their second child this year, and there was just a lot to celebrate!

I had a vision to take photos with the pink water of the salt flats in the background, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out.

It was great to meet you Kats Family!  I hope our paths cross again in Bonaire or Charleston!
