  • Last year was the first year we had missed our annual "Evans Family Sunrise Shoot" on Kiawah Island for half a decade. It's been so much fun watching their kids grow into young adults over the years! Having that gap last year made me realize how quickly they grow. I could hardly believe how big Quin[...]

Conaghan Family at The Ocean Course
  • Conaghan Family at The Ocean Course

  • Oddly enough, none of the Conaghan's, nor myself, are big golf fans. With a family history from Scotland, you'd think that was kind of strange. But guess what!
