Rebekah and Korey’s Wedding Album Posted!

Rebekah and Korey’s wedding, at Summerall Chapel and the Citadel Beach House is now posted on our site!

5 Year Anniversary Pictures!

Kaitlin and Robert got married 5 years ago on January 3rd, 2004 at Summerall Chapel.  Their wedding was one of the first weddings I shot after taking over the Studio from my dad, and their album was the first flushmount storybook ablum that we produced by special request for Kaitlin.  That storybook was the forerunner for our entire present album product line.  So Kaitlin and Robert are a big deal for us around here (I still have a picture of her haning in the studio!).

Robert is finally back from serving our country in the Middle East, and they came to downtown Charleston to stay at the French Quarter Inn, where they stayed their honeymoon night. 

AND THEY BROUGHT COLLIN, their 10 month-old little boy.

So of course we did a family portrait shoot right there at the Inn.  It was great to see them again, especially on such a special day.  Here are a few of the shots:

Baby Grace’s 7 month downtown shoot.

We did quite  a few shoots downtown over the holidays, so I thought I’d post some previews from a few of them.   This one is baby Grace who is getting regular portraits for her first year.  We went downtown to Waterfront park for this shoot.  Did very well and is getting to that age where she has a lot of great expressions.  Happy New Year, Grace!

Darby takes on downtown Charleston

When you’re 18 months old,  your legs are made for walking and running, but sitting still makes you cranky. Rocks are one of your favorite toys, and your photographer has to be ready for your split second adorable poses. Darby was no exception, and Nathan and I had the pleasure of photography her family recently around Waterfront Park in downtown Charleston. Thank you so much for playing outside with us! Here are some of our favorite shots from the shoot:

You can't cross the street without holding someone's hand, but you can definitely sit in it with your parents for a fun family shot.

Darby and her family were so fun and willing to try different things like this.

The best way to end a day downtown is laughing and playing in the grass. This is one my favorite shots from the day.

Fun Family Portraits, downtown Charleston

A couple of weeks ago (before this crazy cold snap!) I had the pleasure of doing a downtown family session with the McCrackin family! We started at Waterfront Park, and walked over to the Customs House steps and a few neat back alleyways!

The kids were a little shy at first, but tons of fun after we all warmed up to each other! Along our walk, there was an art gallery on East Bay St. with a dog inside.

“How much is that doggie in the window?”

By the end of the shoot, it was all silliness….which if you ask me, is so much fun! 
(I love this pic of the kids being goofy!)

Charleston Family Portraits in the historic district with the Knowles Family!

(post by Valerie Schooling)

Last Thursday, after having to reschedule twice due to rain, I finally got to meet Sharon, Wade and Millie downtown Charleston for family portraits! The weather was perfect (finally!)

We had so much fun! We went on a “walk” around some of my favorite spots downtown, and took portraits along the way! Here are a few of my favorites:

The Knowles Family

Millie has so much personality and was so fun the whole time!
(Her mom said she was asking if we could do the photoshoot again the very next day, haha!)

And here’s a closeup of Miss Millie:
