2018 Studio Mini Session Welcome Guide

I am so excited for our studio mini session!

Make sure to prepare your kids for Santa before the session. Go over what they can talk to him about, you can bring a letter for him, etc. If your little one just isn’t having it, we can still get beautiful pictures without Santa.

I’ve included my outdoor Welcome Guide as I feel like much of the information applies. Keep in mind that Santa will have on red so plan your child’s outfit accordingly. The rest of the sets are traditional (slightly farmhouse) green, red and white. I’ve included a link to a Pinterest board with clothing inspiration at the very bottom.

This little girl was determined she wasn't going to sleep through her session. With that big smile and those bright eyes... who cares!

This little dude came in passed out. Then he opened his eyes, stared into my soul and was all "hey girl, you know you want 100 more babies."

She's a tiny little piece of perfection. 


Sweet & Wild Duo | Folly Beach, SC mini session

I had quickly worked with this duo at a neighborhood event so I knew this Folly Beach family mini session was going to be fun. Before each session, I talk to parents about their children: Are they shy or outgoing? What types of things are they currently into? When I read mom's description of her kids, I knew I was in for a treat for this Folly Beach session!

Big Brother is calm, a great listener, and just downright sweet. He was such a little charmer.

Little Miss, well, I was pretty sure she was going to be the female version of my wild 3 year old and boy was she! Actually, their birthdays are only a few days apart! About 10 minutes into the session she was soaked with salt water from ringlet to toe.

I actually love working with kids with big personalities. They keep me on my toes, but I just love how they are fearless around me. This was truly one of those sessions that I didn't want to end.

Fresh Mainland Arrival | West Ashley, SC In-Studio Newborn Mini Session

This perfect little newborn was photographed in-studio in West Ashley, SC in our mini session.

She stayed awake just long enough to investigate what was going on, and then off to sleep she went for the entire hour of her session.

We had to include a nod to Dad's Naval career in our newborn mini session. They are a submarine family like us!

Mom and Dad moved here to the Charleston Area from Hawaii while she was pregnant, and baby was born shortly after arriving.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful time in the life of this family.
