South Carolina and Charleston's Family Photographer Delivering Classic Images

Remember they grow up so fast!

Can your world get any more hectic?? It just becomes a stream of consciousness with lists, calls, carpooling, appointments, sports, dance, cheer, shopping, cleaning, demanding hours at work, UGH – there is just no rest for the weary. ☹ But, when the day’s over and you are preparing for lights out, reading a story snuggled on the couch or tucking them into bed you look at their face and remember how much love you have for your kids and how thankful you are for everything. 

Years from now, when your kids look at these images, they will hear your voice, remember your touch, your warm embrace, feel your hugs and your breath as you kissed their foreheads. They will treasure these images because it is you who gave them the moon and the stars . . . Read the entire letter to you mom!! 

Heart-bursting & emotionally filled wall-worthy images of your rambunctious children and handsome hubby while having a blast!

If you are like the rest of us you probably think, and often, that you need to get family photographs.  Tomorrow just never seems to arrive with one thing leading to another. Your schedule never cooperates, and family photos fall the bottom of the list of to-dos. The kids are getting older, you haven’t had quality time with hubby and you miss it, you look in the mirror and see wrinkles that just won’t iron out no matter what you do and you look at the “family photos” on your phone and realize you aren’t in any of them.

Being a mom is your calling . . .

I am going to capture moments that show the type of relationships you have with your kifs You know: the loving gazes they give you, the way the hold their hand or the way they laugh when you twirl them around.  I will grab photos that will scream: "I've done an awesome job as a mom". You will see poses, activities and expressions that remind you that these are my kids.

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 . . .

Here’s what we will do:

we will have a pre-session consultation to knock out all the details like finding the perfect location, maybe your home, a park, downtown skyline or landmark, or maybe the beach.


We will pick out coordinating outfits, discuss the kinds of props that would make the images “pop”, plan out the snacks and all the little details that will make this special. Themes are good! I am going to send you a checklist, so you don’t have to think or plan a thing – just follow the checklist!


I am going to take a ton of images and most of the time about 30 are presentable to you as I have high standards and so should you.


Within a week we are going to get back together for the “reveal”.


This is a big deal too! Have some tissues ready, grab your hubby, parents, GFs, BFFs etc. and maybe a portable AED {just kidding on this one!} cause you are going to see some AWESOME images.

Products & Pricing

“Your experience doesn’t end with your shoot. Afterwards, you’ll be treated to an in-person viewing of your finished images. If you’re like most of my clients, you probably want something beautiful to display in your home. I know it can be hard to envisage what you can do with your photographs, that’s why I show you exactly what they could look like on your walls or in an album. You’ll be blown away with what we can create together. But don’t worry, you’ll not be subjected to any sleazy sales pitch or put under any pressure to purchase something you don’t want or need. And did I mention that there will be coffee and cake to aid the creative process…”

The session fee is $350. This includes a pre-session consultation, the session fee, post-session image review, and post-processing, reveal session, travel, preparation of ordering of any products you choose. This session fee does not include any products, i.e.: prints, albums or wall art. These are sold separately. My client typically spends about $1,500 on average.
