A little different...

These moments fly by. When I became a mom the song It Won't Be Like This For Long by Darius Rucker made me cry every time I heard it because it is SO true. The days-weeks-years pass so quickly it can feel like a flash, so let's slow down. 

My sessions are tailored to your family 100%, in a done-for-you way. I've created an experience that is simple (because what parent has time for anything extra?!) and customized to you, from booking until the artwork is hung in your home. 

During your session I capture the connections you feel in these deepest moments through a journalistic eye, gentle prompts, and intentional composition. Fifty years from now, when you share your albums with your grandchildren, the spark of these memories will pull you right back as if it happened yesterday.

We're preservationists by nature. We take pictures to stop time, to commit moments to eternity. Human nature made tangible.

Offering both setting options in order to serve your family best.

What is your family's story? Does your home have significant meaning for you? Do you have a home filled with beautiful light and minimal distractions - allowing for your space to enhance the story we are telling and keep your family as the main focus? If so, an in-home session may be the right choice for you. 

Are you a nature-loving or active family? (or do you just love Charleston's gorgeous scenery?) If so then an outdoor session is probably a great fit for you. 

Helping you choose the best option for your family is part of my process, so if you're still unsure don't worry! We will design your session aesthetic together.

Session Scheduling Details

Outdoor Sessions

Outdoor sessions take place year-round, in a few of our favorite locations in the Charleston, South Carolina area. Some of these places are: Historic Downtown, Hampton Park, Isle of Palms Beach, etc. Your session design will guide the exact outdoor location. I travel often, so please contact me if you'd like to book a session outside of Charleston.

In-Home Sessions

In-home sessions are scheduled year-round within the Charleston area. These sessions are generally scheduled midday, depending on the light in your home. Homes with lots of natural light and a minimal design aesthetic photograph best with my photography style.

Studio Sessions

Studio sessions are offered periodically throughout the year. For the best updated information on scheduled studio sessions join the email list!

Signature Sessions

We recommend scheduling between 28 - 34 weeks

Maternity sessions are such a sweet time of celebration. Baby will be joining your family in just a few short weeks and life is about to get a whole lot sweeter (and a little busier!). My favorite recommendation is for you to plan a "babymoon", and schedule your maternity photos then! 

We schedule outdoor maternity sessions year-round, for sunrise or sunset.

We recommend scheduling 2 - 3 weeks after baby is born

Baby has arrived! These sweet, snuggly sessions are held in your home, between 2 and 3 weeks after baby is born. 

To schedule a newborn session let us know when your due-date is so we can put a tentative timeframe on the calendar. As soon as baby arrives let us know, and we will book the exact date. Parenthood Collective members get priority dates. 

We schedule newborn sessions year-round, generally in the midmorning or midafternoon.

Family portrait sessions are perfect for documenting your family as the years go by. Family sessions are photographed on-location either in Charleston's historic downtown, at one of the beautiful parks, or at one of two beaches. (Folly Beach or Isle of Palms Beach)

We schedule on-location outdoor family sessions year-round, for sunrise or sunset.

Signature Session Details

What's Included:

  • Let's Chat: We kick things off with a phone call. It's our chance to chat about how my sessions go, find the perfect date that fits your schedule, and dive into any questions you might have. 
  • Getting to know your family: My #1 goal is to capture your family and what makes you unique. I will send a questionnaire that helps me truly understand who you are and what you hope to see in your photos! 
  • Wardrobe & Styling: Let's walk wardrobe - it can feel overwhelming, especially for the whole family! Drawing from our conversations and questionnaire, I'll create a style board and include shoppable links. I will also coordinate hair and makeup if desired. I'm here for outfit and styling advice, as much or as little as you want. 
  • Final Check-In: A quick catch-up a few days before your session to make sure everything is ready to go - including the weather! Life throws curveballs, I get it. If something pops up unexpectedly, no worries. We will adjust what we need to. 
  • An hour of fun: Get ready for up to 60 minutes of capturing your family's love! 
  • Image Premiere: Roughly 3 weeks after your session it's time for the unveiling of your photos! The choice is yours, whether you'd like to view your photos in the comfort of your home, or a relaxed location nearby. 
  • Designed for you: I'll guide you through choosing the perfect custom album, statement artwork, and story wall art that matches your family's unique style. 
  • Delivery & Installation: Once your artwork arrives it will either be available for pickup, or I'll deliver and install it for you!

Premier Sessions

Due to the custom nature of these sessions a limited number are available

It's not often that the whole family & extended family are in one place, so vacations are the perfect time to schedule family portraits! 

Our vacation sessions include your immediate and extended family, up to 15 people. Please let us know if you plan to have more than 15 family members attending. 

We schedule vacation sessions at sunrise or before sunset, from June - August. I am also available to travel for sessions outside of Charleston.

Your family is unlike any other family, so why have the same photo session as hundreds of others? Family story sessions are custom-tailored to tell your family's story, at this moment in time. 

Story session location depends on your family, and is determined during the planning process. Some locations include: In-home, on-location, and destination. 

We schedule family story sessions year-round, and timing is dependent on the session plan.
