Whether you're coming to see a love-soaked family or lifestyle newborn session, glimpses of beautiful Charleston, or my favorite local restaurant and coffee shops - I am excited to share a little piece of my heart with you.
These 18-month milestone photos in downtown Charleston were SO much fun. This precious little boy has been in front of my lens many times but I just couldn’t get over how grown up he was this time! Time is truly a thief and I know this family will be so grateful they chose to prioritize sessions as a First Year Member. For this session, we got to document a few memories downtown and in the CMP studio!
These three are a membership family, and I can’t believe how much this sweet boy has changed since his newborn session. He just has the cutest personality and getting to know him and his family over the past two years has been such a joy. He was a little shy but still such a happy little guy in front of the camera.
For their First Year Membership, they chose a newborn, six-month, and now his 18-month session. Due to busy schedules, we pushed his one-year session to 18 months, which ended up being perfect. By 18 months, kids really show off their sweet personalities, can understand some cues, and still like to be picked up for some snuggles! He also got to join me for our Santa event in November.
During the outdoor portion of our session, we had the best time looking for trucks in between frames. We lucked out when we saw his favorite (garbage trucks) while walking on Chalmers Street. My boys were never interested in trucks like that so I get such a kick out of seeing what brings each kiddo joy.
We finished in the studio with some solo photos of this sweet boy. He loved showing off his block building skills and gave us some of the cutest little grins. I love that we could focus on just him in these portraits.
Studio photos have been one of the most wonderful additions to the CMP client experience. I love that the location is so close to some of my favorite downtown spots and that we have the option for some air conditioning in the hot summer months! It really is the best of both worlds!
Soon this family’s heirloom album will arrive, showcasing over 50 of their favorite images from the course of their Membership, and I for one am counting down the days until we get to see their gorgeous sessions in print!!
