From in-home newborn sessions to growing siblings running through the sands of South Carolina beaches, my portrait sessions have one thing in common- the focus on the sweet moments that make your family so special.

Sessions start at $650

all about our


Family sessions are most commonly on the beaches and in the parks of Charleston where your children can be free and really let their personalities shine.

My goal for sessions is always to get the littles on my side- comfortable enough to run and play with me and give you all the kisses and snuggles while I quietly document those quick, candid moments we love so much.

I’ll guide your family through a few classic poses at first, but then we focus on connection through play - in the water, through the tall grasses, and all the beautiful spots I’ve scoped out for your session.

you have a

baby on the way?

Newborn sessions take place in your home and with the entire family. Dress in your softest, most neutral clothes and I’ll make a visit with my camera, just like an old friend.

newborn session details

We involve siblings and allow them to feel all the excitement of having a brand new baby to squish and documenting their sweet demeanor around their new baby brother or sister.

A few creamy, neutral baby blankets and an open window is all I need to document the sweetness within those first days.

Newborn sessions include:

Lifestyle Poses

As opposed to the heavily-posed style of newborn photography, I focus on natural, lifestyle photographs of your little one.

All the Details

The littlest head of hair, all the fingers and toes, and baby wrinkles that go away too soon will live on forever in your newborn gallery.

Sibling Love

Include big brothers and sisters to document their age differences and their new found connection.
