Hampton Park Family Session

It is extremely humbling to have a family drive over an hour for a session. We had the perfect Charleston evening and the happiest big sister there ever was!

My first outdoor newborn session. It's funny that fall in Charleston is warmer than I keep my studio, but this little man didn't seem to mind one bit.

Hampton Park Family Session | Charleston Family Photography

We are newly back to Charleston and I guess I had forgotten about the infamous "pop up summer storm". What started as a beautiful day quickly turned into a black-cloud evening in West Ashley. Ashley and I (in case you're confused... mom's name is Ashley, my name is Ashleigh and we both live in West Ashley. Got it? Ha!) decided we would head downtown and see what happened. I was thrilled when I pulled into Hampton Park and was greeted by beautiful sunshine! 

After the first pose, I could already tell this family's love was going to translate beautifully on print. The boys were as sweet as could be and interested in two things - running and loving on their momma. We chatted about their new home, our Georgia connections and their upcoming vacation. As I'm sure you can tell from the pictures, they were a dream family to work with!

There's a saying, "it's a small Navy." It amazes me how true that statement is. I meet this guy's momma when we first moved to Washington. She was pregnant at the time and our husband's worked together. They moved to Charleston about two years ago, when little P was about 6 months old. Of course, we just moved to Charleston a couple of months ago. I was so happy when I was asked to photograph their now THREE year old (what?!?!) before they moved on to their next big adventure. 

Our session was full of running around Hampton Park, looking for dinosaurs and jumping off boxes in the sunshine. Could you ask for a better evening in downtown Charleston?
