Cake for breakfast! | Charleston Lifestyle Family Photographer

I thoroughly enjoyed a morning with these two brothers...I'm sure they enjoyed their cake for breakfast too!

Donut date with my biggest little

I got brave and brought my camera to our donut date. This might have to become a thing... donut dates and taking my camera to "normal" places.

Your Christmas Picture Checklist

If you're anything like me, you've been thinking about Christmas for weeks. There is always so much going on and I don't want to get to the end of the day and realize I didn't get any of the pictures that are living in my head. So, I made a list of pictures I know I want to get and I thought I would share it with you. The more organized you are, the less time you'll have to spend taking pictures and the more time you can spend enjoying the day!
