I’m sad we couldn’t get all the family members in these pictures, (two older siblings at college), but we did get a few extra family members in with pets! Fortunately we’ve made plans to meet again in the summer! ūüėČDunes West Magazine photographerCharleston Family Photographer Dunes West MagazineFamily Photographer Charleston SCThe black and white “puppy” has already doubled in size in the last month!

Dunes West Feature Family for February, Mt Pleasant SC Family Photos

The Sonnendecker family welcomed me with open arms, barking dogs, and freezing temperatures.Charleston-SC-Family-Photography

It was maaaybe 40 degrees, if that,¬†but you’d never know it from the pictures.

Someone abandoned us for Pringles, but you’d never know it either.¬†Charleston SC Family PhotographerWe had a blast, we tried to only stay outside for about 15 minutes at a time. We did as much running around to stay warm as we could, it worked, and made for some great laughs.Charleston SC Family PhotographerCharleston SC Family PhotographerDunes West Family PhotographerDunes West Family PhotographerDunes West Family PhotographerJana, misled me, I don’t believe it was intentional though. Inside she gave me a tour of the home, her room, her brother’s room. All polite, and sweet, outside she let me in on a secret. She told me she’s actually the class clown!

I can’t wait to see what pictures are picked for the magazine¬†in February. Thanks guys!

Beach Christmas Mini Sessions, Charleston Family Photographer

I had so much fun chasing these adorable kiddos all over Isle of Palms. These were taken right after Hurricane Matthew, I’m glad it didn’t cancel their family vacation. If you look closely in the background you can see that the sand dunes no longer gently slope down to the beach, it’s now a sharp drop off from where the water washed away the dunes and boardwalks. But the storm made for an incredible sunset!Isle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-PortraitsI’ve been hosting mini sessions throughout October, November, and December to raise support for my service trip overseas. Every adoption story I’ve ever heard started with the words “I fell in love with their picture.” That thought stuck with me, I heard another photographer talking about photographing kids in orphanages. I knew pictures of kids laughing, playing, and being themselves, could¬†really help parents imagine what it would be like to welcome these children into their families.¬†Turns out that photographer was planning a trip to do just that!

So I started packing! Keep checking back for more details on my trip.Charleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerIsle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-PortraitsCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerIsle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-PortraitsIsle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-PortraitsCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerIsle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-PortraitsCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerCharleston+Mini+Session+Family+PhotographerThank you for being a part of my Charleston Mini Sessions and for supporting kids and families around the world!Isle-of-Palms-Beach-Mini-Session-Charleston-Family-Portraits
