The Moore Family {Family} | CHARLESTON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

Since it is all glum and overcast outside today, this sunny Kiawah Island beach session is just the remedy to brighten things up.  The Moore family came back to visit the place where “Mommy and Daddy” first became Mr. & Mrs. Moore.  We went back to the Sanctuary grounds for some pictures, sitting on the lawn right where their ceremony was held.  And the kids got their first “toes in the sand” experience on the beach just behind the Ocean Course clubhouse.  What the family wanted most were some classic black and white shots that could grace their walls and some fun candids of the kids playing.  ...

Peyton {Children} | CHARLESTON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

This sweet family lives in Beaufort, but our ties run deep.  Peyton’s grandmother Gretchen became a good friend of mine years back when we worked together on her daughter’s wedding.  Gretchen is a design maven here in Charleston, so I am hugely flattered anytime she calls on me.  This time her call was to bestow my services as a gift to her son’s family.  Peyton is the first grandchild in the family and loved like the angel she resembles.  We chose to shoot downtown to take advantage of the Charleston scenery and revisit a few places special to Peyton’s parents. After chasing Peyton through the park and around several trees, she quite beautifully collapsed on her favorite blanket.  Then she rolled over and gave me these “older than her years” poses that made her daddy blush. This precious child LOVED to smell flowers.  And like most children, her curiosity for all things new overcame her desire to pose for the camera.  But these sweet and playful photos are exactly why I love to photograph children. Yes, she was waving at the tourists walking by….how adorable! This is where Adam and Amy stopped to show Peyton where they were married.  :...

THE LANGSTON FAMILY {PORTRAITS} | CHARLESTON FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Lori and her family have known my family since our children were in school together at Montessori.  And then at the next school.  And then living in the same neighborhood.  And then we found ourselves a part of the same church.   The many intersecting circles of our lives.  It’s such a joy “doing life” together! As her twin children find themselves heading off to high school, Lori knew family photographs were in order.  Time to “stop time” with some memories to hang on the walls.  This brother and sister are definitely siblings.  Plenty of love/punches, smiles/snarls, giggles/screams.  I loved being a part of their afternoon and playing right along with...
