This session is going to be special to me for a very long time – it’s my first in Charleston! Mount Pleasant, specifically. Gorgeous sunset views like we had that night from Alhambra Hall are just part of the reason I decided to relocate to Charleston, it was perfection.

A little aside; people keep asking me why I’m moving to Charleston, so, in a nut shell, I’m simply Jersey’d out. I’m looking for a quieter, warmer (beachier), friendly place to call home and I think this is going to be a great fit.  The timing is right, I’m very excited to start fresh and even though I’ll have to do some rebuilding for my business, it’s going to be worth it. I think my style of family and newborn photography will find its’ own niche, no problem.

While I was apartment hunting back in June, I was able to do a session with the ‘A’ family. We had lots to chat about and the kiddos were adorable, I really had a great time getting to know them.

Alhambra Hall is going to be one of my favorite locations – with view of the Ravenel Bridge in the distance, plenty of water, and just enough tree cover to provide a bit of shade. Of course, who can resist a little wading in the water? By the end, little Miss Caitlin was ankle deep, hehe. I can’t wait for the next one!

Hello Charleston!

This family session I did in Jersey City last spring is one of my favorite examples to show when I say “indoor-outdoor” session, and I know my new Charleston clients will love it as well.

We started in the G family’s home with a studio setup for the kiddos, and boy were they adorable. I love how the two backdrops coordinate for both baby brother and big sister, the images will look so nice displayed together.

Later, we walked to our local park to catch the sunset, and it really worked out perfectly. The soft, diffused light adds a painterly element to the images.

I can’t express in words how important time of day is for your own family shoot, so I’ll let the images speak for themselves.

Devin was as good as gold for me back in May. His daddy is one of my oldest friends, so it was extra special and fun for me to meet this little sweetie. I especially love his parent images. He was so cozy, and you can really see how much he already looks like his mama!

Take note of those dimples and cleft chin…swoon ❤️ Congrats again Chris and Kate!

This was a fun one and a great example of how I we can achieve different looks in one location. From summer 2016…

Two-year-old Shea was so chatty and sweet during our shoot that she really turned a “meh” weekend into a completely lovely one for me. Allowing her tramp around in the dirt among the flowers right at the start of our session was pretty much the cutest thing ever. We counted them and looked at the colors. She was happy as a lark and totally comfortable as mom and dad watched nearby.

As the sun dipped and the light became nice and soft, we headed closer to the water to capture some sweet family moments against the pastel buildings across the river in Manhattan.

I’m so thrilled that the M family will have these images in print to decorate their new home in their new city very soon! Thanks guys!

I am going to miss my semi-annual sessions with the F family. I have loved this location in Manhattan, and of course, getting to know how wonderful they all are! Maybe I can come up again next Fall, Vanessa!

Miss Kate was super cute and super squirmy during our cake smash session last year. Until her cake came out, she was up and down and all over the place, like most toddlers. All I could do was laugh and keep resetting, girlfriend gave us a workout!  It was worth it though, we were able to get some very sweet and funny images to mark her first birthday.

Good job, Kate!

Nami really wanted to be in on all the action during her session back in late November. I spent lots of time trying to convince her that this would be much easier if she settled in for a good nap, haha. She was calm enough for me to proceed, so we’ve got a nice variety of bright-eyed images, along with a few sweet sleepy ones. Such a pretty little lady asleep and awake. 🙂

One thing I’ll miss about New Jersey is the beautiful display the cherry trees put on every spring. I have no doubt Charleston is going to offer its own gems, and I can’t wait to discover new favorite places to photograph!

Luke was such a gorgeous little love during his session in February. He slept like a champ for the majority of our session, and then let me get a few awake shots. Look at that adorable profile! Mom and dad sure are lucky – he’s a keeper! 🙂

The ‘P’ family was a total dream to work with this winter. Baby Niam was a sleepy lil love and big sister Ava was just too cute for words. I was pleasantly surprised with how soft and timeless the family’s gray tops went with my new “mocha” backdrop – it’s so warm and inviting – those lovely faces don’t hurt either!
