I was scheduled to meet Patty and Grant for their engagement session at the pier on the beach at 7 pm.

Both parties arrived at 7, but in what must have looked, sped up, like a Benny Hill episode, I was under the pier and they were on it. I hunted and they hunted, and we somehow comedically managed to keep missing each other. We didn’t find each other until 7:25 pm, when the remaining slivers of the day’s light were fading very fast. However, it turned out to be a good thing. We were able to shoot on the beach like we wanted to, and then I used the near-darkness as an opportunity to find interesting ways to light them with whatever light sources we came across, plus a little bit of flash when needed. It resulted in a bit of a dramatic-looking,  out-of-the-box (for me) set of images for the second half of the engagement session,  and ultimately I loved having to regroup and think on the fly.

This couple is awesome. Like my wonderful previous engagement clients Elizabeth and JD, Grant is an Air Force pilot. Patty actually spotted them on my blog and turns out they know each other. Small world!

I met up with Ainsley and Trey last month for their downtown engagement session. Ainsley is at College of Charleston, and Trey graduated from The Citadel in May.

After their wedding in December, they will be moving to the state of Washington, where Trey is stationed. I love that! It’s a story you don’t hear a whole lot anymore; a young couple, just starting life, vowing to make a go of it together right from the very beginning and kicking off their married life across the country. Very romantic, don’t you think?

Shawn is the cousin of a church friend of mine, and she and her ridiculously adorable and happy family made the trip from Kentucky to spend a few days relaxing at the beach this summer.

The kids’ first day back to school. They switched from a private to a public school this year, and I was nervous, but it’s gone swimmingly. And new worlds have opened up to Miss Thang, since she no longer has to wear plaid jumpers to school and can explore all sorts of sartorial silliness. This was a tame day, white t-shirt style.

The children have lost his clothes, so they’ve taken to calling him “Nude Dude.” I feel like maybe that’s not quite OK, but I’m sort of at a loss as to how to address the topic. The AAP books don’t have a nude dude chapter; I’ve checked.

Time out for pulling the cat’s tail. (“We don’t gnaw on our ki-tty.”)   She’s so adorable to me.

The playroom. The children are theoretically responsible for keeping this space clean.

This is my friend’s sweet son. If I babysit your child, I photograph them. I can’t resist new portrait subjects. Luckily, everyone loves the swing.
