I'm a coffee-fueled boy mama with a deep love for film, old family photos, acoustic music, and the sound of waves crashing at the beach.
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.
I know I sound like a broken record but I just love beach sessions. This Folly Beach maternity session did not disappoint, and mama was glowing in this dress from the Client Wardrobe!
The day we did this session, the weather was a balmy 101 degrees. No joke, it was so gross outside. I showed up with waters and Gatorade for everyone which was a big help, but even just the walk to the beach had me sweating!
This beautiful mama, though? You couldn’t even tell she was hot! She worked with the amazing hair and makeup stylists at Lashes and Lace, and she looked flawless despite the heat. I know this can be a big expense for some but it is SO worth it. It is especially helpful when you’re investing in a session that you’ll be printing and framing around your house, which is my hope for all of my clients!
The sun was a still a bit high when we got to the beach, so we started in this little pocket of trees for some coverage. Big sister warmed up the moment we started playing “swing” and after that we just explored!
Our sunsets have had this beautiful pink hue to them this Summer and I loved being able to document mama’s bump in this gorgeous dress. It was flowy and just the perfect shade of pink, especially with baby girl number two on the way!
