Updated Headshots | James Island

Everyone needs headshots these days – whether you are a business owner or just want to look your best online. Libby needed some updated headshots for social media and she wanted more of a lifestyle feel.  We met at her home on James Island to capture her new photos.

Middleton Place Engagement | Kayla + Parker

Kayla + Parker are engaged!  It was a family affair at their Middleton Place engagement session.  I had a blast wandering the historic paths of the plantation, chasing chickens, and photographing their engagement!

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!

Dog Portraits | Linus + Olive

A long time friend wanted to surprise his wife with professional portraits of their Boston terriers, Linus + Olive.  I love dogs, and was more than happy to photograph their puppy children in my backyard on James Island.  Fortunately their dad was there, armed with treats, to help me wrangle the pups and get them to look at the camera!

In Home Family Session | Charleston, SC

Last month I got to photograph my good friend and neighbor and her super fun family!  With kids under 5 you have to be ready for anything, and we were.  From making music with moracas to blowing bubbles, to making silly faces in the window, to Miles holding a back scratcher in all the photos, we all followed the children’s lead and got some cute photos.
