Rachel & Thad | Maternity Portrait Session | Charleston SC Family Photographer

Happy 2015, y'all! I can't believe it's already here, and am so excited for what's in store. For Rachel and Thad, it's a new addition to the family!  Rachel is a talented photographer (check out her work over here) and when she moved to Charleston, SC from Abingdon, VA in July of last year to work in the wedding industry, we met for coffee to chat and get to know each other.

With a bun in the oven, she wanted some beautiful maternity images with her sweet hubby Thad and their dogs Frances & Betty. I was more than happy to oblige, and love how well the session turned out! The Lowcountry landscape was the perfect setting to capture Rachel's natural glowing beauty in anticipation of motherhood. Meanwhile, Thad couldn't be more excited about his handiwork, as evidenced by that ear-to-ear grin! Congratulations, you two!

Harris Family | Beach Portrait Session | Charleston SC Family Photographer

I met the Harris family through my friend Kate over at Fabulous Fête. They are such a cool family, and I was thrilled when they asked me to shoot a family portrait session with them. As luck would have it, Charleston has some great beaches perfect for capturing this playful bunch in action. The day was gorgeous! Despite the cooler November water temperature, we even found a live starfish! Zoey and Dylan were delighted, and had a blast playing on the beach all afternoon with mom and dad.
