Family Sessions

Wormsloe Plantation Family Session | Mitchell Family

Brittany, Paul, and baby Owen are just stealing my heart this morning on the blog and I don't know about you guys but I just cannot get enough of them!

Brittany contacted me at the beginning of the week 2 weeks ago asking if I was available for a portrait session in the coming days and when she mentioned that her and her family were new to town and wanted a place to take some updated portraits that embodied the essence of the lowcountry, I knew that Wormsloe Plantation would be the perfect fit!

We were blessed with the most gorgeous afternoon that provided some amazing light and even better temperatures and Owen's cute smile + giggles put everybody in the best of moods!

Enjoy some of my favorites below and get ready to gush!

Palmetto Bluff, SC Family Session | Luechtefeld Family

Families + Fall Sessions just seem to go hand and hand so when I got an email from Tess saying that she and her family were going to be in town and were in need of some new family portraits, I was a little more than excited to volunteer for the job!

I meet the Luechtefeld's at Montage Palmetto Bluff and this place was straight out of a Southern Magazine. Just picture the most southern hotel surrounded by moss, a beautiful green lawn, a little white chapel, and buildings made with endless shiplap and you pretty much have this place down to tee. 

I had a blast exploring the grounds with this family of 4 and they had to have been one of the easiest and most laid back families that I have had the pleasure of working with! These 4 were off to Disney the very next day after our time together and I am just going to have to convince them to take me with them the next time they go down!

Enjoy some of my favorites below :)

Hilton Head Island Family Session | Rhoda Family Vacation

I don't do family sessions often but when I do, I just LOVE the mess out of them! I cannot think of a better way to spend an evening than with a loving family, the beach, and some of the cutest kiddos around! 

Georgie contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if she could set something up while they were in town celebrating spring break from Ohio and mentioned that she would be needing not only family portraits for herself but for her extended family as well that was coming! I found that to be such a breath of fresh air that Georgie was coming on her vacation with not only her family but her siblings and their families as well and I feel that you just dont see that much anymore! 

I had a blast hanging with this family of 13 on the beaches of South Beach over in Sea Pines and its always a treat when I get to drive through there to get a glimpse of the spanish moss covered trees, beyond gorgeous homes, and the dreamiest views on the island! 

If your interested in setting up your own family session, I would love to hear from you as the summer months creep closer and closer! Let's capture those family memories and get them hung on your walls for everybody to see for years to come :)

Bluffton, SC Newborn Session | MaryBeth + Andrew

And after a whirlwind of a weekend, I have finally made it back to this space with some major updates coming over the next couple of days! I have officially entered into 'busy season' and that means back to a constant stream of posts, updates, and all the cuteness that comes along with my brides, new mommas, and everything/anything else in-between!

So if you are anything like me, you are just gonna SWOON over this newborn session because it doesnt include just one baby, but TWO! That's right, I have a TWIN newborn session for you today and I just have to preface this post by saying that these two were probably some of the easiest babies that I have every photographed! No peeps from these two, no struggles, no temper tantrums, nothinnngggg! Dream babies right here! 

Anyways, back to the tale! I happen to know MaryBeth from our college days at Georgia College so when she contacted me in the Fall/Winter about setting something up for her when her twin boys arrived left me not only super excited to catch up with an old friend + getting to meet her sons but also because I learned that she lives local to us! Double high fives to us for now knowing another couple on the island! Because when you live in a town that is 90% made up of folks that are 55+ in age, you gotta hold on tight to the 20 somethings that you find living in the crooks and nannies of this place along the way! 

Again, getting so sidetracked with my side notes today......but I cannot tell you enough how much I enjoyed getting to hang out with this new family of 4 last week! Marybeth and Andrew welcomed me into their home (which was beyond cutely decorated by the way) and we just went to work capturing a beautiful lifestyle session for them! 

So enjoy this session filled with tiny toes, baby yawns, adorning parents, and the cutest little golf cart that I know these boys will grow up loving!

Savannah, GA Family Photographer | Godshall Session

The internet is one magical tool my friends and I LOVEE how it keeps helping me to connect with so many fellow creatives around the country that I really have come to find it such a huge blessing!

Jen and I happen to be a part of some of the same online photography communities on Facebook and when she learned that I happened to live around the Savannah, GA area she was thrilled because her and her little family were basically on their way into town and wanted to know if I was available to do a mini session of sorts while they were on vacation! Of course my answer was yes because who could turn down another photographer's request for family photos and it didnt hurt that her 1 year old son had the cutest smile ever :)

With never having been to the city before, I decided to take Jen, Jason, and baby Nate to Forsyth Park first before we decided to hit the streets of Savannah to capture it's famous spanish moss, brick walkways, vine covered stairs, and historic little nooks! I loved being able to spend this time getting to know the Godshall's while also being able to show them around town!

If any of you are ever down in Florida and looking for a photographer, make sure you contact Jen because not only is she one of the sweetest souls with a killer wardrobe but her work pretty much speaks for itself! 

Until next time friends!
