I met up with adorable Anna and Ian against this year at Folly Beach.

It’s funny. I always notice how much children have grown when I photograph them multiple times, but the difference between almost two year old twins and almost three year old twins is amazing. They were talking! And walking around like they owned the place! Crazy.

As we were making our way to the Morris Island Lighthouse overlook, we noticed smoke coming from the forested area between the lane and the beach.

Really, quite a lot of smoke. And popping noises.

Fascinating and a smidge frightening, but they were dressed and we were halfway there, so no turning back.

After we played on the beach for about 45 minutes, all the while hearing sirens and seeing the smoke steadily crawl the sky like a charcoal predator, we walked back and encountered the fire truck and and other bystanders.

Apparently someone drove onto the beach, started doing doughnuts in the sand, and flipped up onto the dunes, catching his engine on fire. This is why we can’t have nice things.

Thankfully, no one was hurt. But it’s a photo shoot none of us will soon forget.

Thanks, FBFD!

Proud grandparents are the best! I photographed Carolyn’s family when her sons, daughter in law, and granddaughter were in town to visit. It was important for her to have time with her first grandchild documented. I love the colors this family wore. Add green grass, a lovely sunset, and a beach ball, and we had the perfect photo session.

C.R. turned 11 yesterday. He’s a football-loving, Minecrafting, guitar-strumming, didgeridoo-learning, reading-all-the-time all American boy.

 

(Did I mention the Minecrafting? Lots of Minecraft.)

 

And last week he received an award for a 100% on his South Carolina PASS standardized test writing section. I’m proud of that! A perfect score on a written essay is pretty awesome.

It’s dull and brown this time of year. But for about 10 minutes each evening, the front yard gets wonderful golden sun.

It’s a little too cold to be playing with the hose. But we like to live dangerously.

Molly’s vision for her family session was to capture them having fun and being themselves.  And we did! I love the light, colors, humor and energy here.

I’m always so proud to show off how friendly and polite Charlestonians are to out-of-towners.

When I’m meeting Brits, though, it’s a toss-up. There’s a witty good-naturedness to the English that wins me over every time.

The wonderful Potter family gathered in Charleston from Chicago and England for a wonderful vacation and a photo session to document the gang.

I had a few spare minutes today, so I ordered photo Christmas cards with images from this quick mini-session I did with my own children earlier this fall.

To all my clients: there’s still time to order cards right from your gallery!

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful holiday season-

I met the adorable and vivacious Fornshell family this past spring with a group of their friends.

The group of 4 families opted to do four back to back mini sessions of each family, as well as get a few whole group shots. It was not only an affordable way to commemorate your gang on vacation, but, more importantly, works out well with the kids’ attention spans. It was unseasonably chilly, but I hope they had a great time anyway.

Today I’m featuring another family session from the archives.

The Butlers had portraits made before a deployment.

Little guy Adam had one of the most joyous smiles I’ve ever seen!

This spring, Sarah contacted me about taking some portraits and candids of her son as a Father’s Day surprise.

We met up at White Point Gardens on a perfect afternoon, and turned Ethan loose so he could turn on the charm.
