Charleston Charm Maternity Session Preview

The cool morning gave way to a beautiful evening. And our night ended with dolphins playing super close in the harbor so you know it was a good night.

I had the best time walking around downtown and chatting with this mom-to-be. I am so thankful for this job that connects me with such fun people!

Messiest Cake Smasher | Downtown Charleston, SC 1st Birthday Milestone Session

I met this family bright and early for a session full of baby snuggles and cake eating in celebration of this little guy's first birthday. As soon as I pulled my camera out, he flashed me the best smile and I knew this was going to be a good session.

This was such a sweet family. It was apparent from the beginning of the session just how much they love each other- and how obsessed they are with their baby! And it turns out that our husbands work together and we have a few mutual friends. It's funny how small the world is!

We walked around Downtown Charleston and hit the "hot spots"- Rainbow Row and Waterfront Park- and then headed to White Point Gardens for some cake.

You would never know from the pictures, but K didn't actually eat any cake! He might win the title for "Messiest Cake Smasher Who Didn't Actually Eat Any Cake." He loved running his hands through the cake though.

K, I hope you have a wonderful dinosaur birthday party and that year #2 is full of many wonderful memories!

Don't let their spring outfits fool you. This was a year-end mini session that we did back in November. This is why I love the South, especially the Lowcountry so much. White Point Gardens downtown by the Battery served as the perfect backdrop for this sweet family. After stopping to watch a wedding (the girls wanted to watch the bride and groom kiss), we popped over to Church Street to wrap up their session.
