I believe it's about making you feel comfortable in front of a camera and ensuring you enjoy the entire process!!
Concerned about being photographed?
Worried about the kids and hubby not cooperating or out of control? I specialize in children-ology!! I totally get youngsters and have a knack at getting them to calm down and smile AND even pull the shy ones of their shells momentarily to capture who they really are . .
I believe your photographs should be a celebration of who you are. An opportunity for you to see the love and connection in yourself your family and your life.
I also know what it’s like to put something off because you don’t feel good enough.
I can hear you now: I can't do this until: I’ve lost that weight and I feel fat and chubby and have all these wrinkles that an iron couldn't take out.
Let’s face it, there will always be something.
Art, I have a FEAR of being photographed!
Can you help me? It's awkward right? Your smile is tight, and you are hyper-aware of your arms and hands but what do you do with them. Well, you won't have a moment to feel any of those things because I lead and guide you through the whole experience so that you're never left wishing the ground would swallow you up!
I am committed to making you look beautiful
I'm a portrait photographer in Charleston South Carolina and whether it's boudoir, headshot or family photography you are looking for, I am extremely focused on making you look radiant and beautiful.
I love to laugh and say ridiculous things to put you at ease. It won't take more than a minute to get you to relax and show your natural smile. I love nothing more watching you have fun and seeing your personality emerge.
I am without a doubt someone who loves to laugh, joke around and have fun chatting over coffee and perhaps chocolate chip cookies.
Worried about out of control kids?

It’s all about the kids being comfortable with the photographer. Someone that’s funny and relaxes them. It helps so much that the kids feel safe and have fun. That's when we get the best images.
"I was anxious about my body. I always look horrible in pictures and I don’t think I am very photogenic. Arthur took his time and made sure that he got THE BEST shots possible of my family, even with a busy 2 year old! He made it fun and it felt natural. Our pictures came out perfect!
Wondering if you and I will hit it off?
I love nothing more than feeling a real connection between us and knowing we might become friends. Here’s are a few things about me that might give you some insight into whether that’s a possibility...
I will bet you that being a mom is your calling . . . I am going to capture moments that show the type of relationships you have with your kids. I will grab photos that will scream: "I've done an awesome job as a mom". You will see poses, activities and expressions that capture the real you!
I hope we are a good match: I’m probably not the right photographer for you if:
you are looking for something cheap and quick. I’m really not that cheap and I take whatever time is necessary to get to know you and your family.
If you are looking for only digital images we are not going to be a good match. I am thoroughly committed to printed products.
I LOVE and have a passion for processing my images in B&W and I hope you do as well.
