Lawson’s Senior Portraits

Lawson is an incredibly smart, kind, and beautiful young lady! Her easy-going personality and naturally quiet demeanor has a calming effect on everyone around her. And when that infectious smile bursts out, you can’t help but be happy inside! Lawson plays golf on her high-school team, and is hoping to study law when she goes to college.

Yesterday I had a really fun mentoring session with my friends Geno and Tyler. They were kind enough to teach me how to fly their drones. So I returned the favor by sharing some photography tips. Lawson was kind enough to accept the challenge of being our super model for the afternoon as we worked on our techniques. What a brave girl!!! 😉

We started our fun fashion shoot off at Hampton Park…later progressing to Brittlebank Park for the sunset. It was a gorgeous day, and Lawson was absolutely STUNNING!!! It was an honor and a pleasure to capture some creative Senior Portraits for this amazing young lady!

Taylor’s Modeling Portfolio

Last night our friend Robin brought her beautiful daughter, Taylor, to model for me and a few of my crazy fun photographer friends!

All images were shot with a Nikon D4 and Nikkor 70-200 f2.8. I used a Nikon SB-5000 as a Master flash to trigger 3 SB-800 Remote flashes. Two SB-800 flashes were ganged together as Group A in a 24″ EZY Box as the main light. One bare-bulb SB-800 in Group A was used as a kicker/rim light. All flashes were triggered with the RadioPopper Px system. After sunset, I placed full CTO gels on each flash and switched the cameras White-Balance to tungsten, giving the sky that electric blue tone.

Many thanks to David for the use of his classic Porsche, and to Michelle for hosting the event and finding this incredible location. But most importantly, a huge thank you to Taylor for braving the mosquitoes and looking absolutely FABULOUS!!! 🙂

Kristin & John’s Family at Runnymede Plantation

If you’ve never heard of A Perfect Balance Bookkeeping, you need to!  They have saved us countless hours of nashing-of-teeth and pulling-of-hair when it comes to all the taxes, licenses, and forms it takes to run your own business.

Kristin Diggett has been a god-send to us. Not only is she our GIFTED book-keeper, she’s also an AMAZING mother, and TALENTED tennis player. But the best part is, she’s also our dear friend…as is John by extension!!!

Yesterday we were excited to photograph updated family portraits for Kristin and John’s blended family. And what better place to do that than the STUNNING Runnymede Plantation?!? Many thanks to our good friend Tim for the privilege of working with such beautiful, elegant, lowcountry backdrops.

Congratulations Kristin & John…you survived yet another crazy photo shoot with Cami and I!!!  🙂

Kristin’s Senior Portraits

Visiting from Ohio, Kristin’s family thought it would be really cool to have her Senior Portrait Session in a unique and different setting than all her friends back home.

So we scheduled a 3-location shoot for her that included Folly Beach, downtown Charleston, and the Old Sheldon Church ruins. Many thanks to her brother, Andrew, for coming along and providing a lot of good laughs!

CONGRATULATIONS, Kristin! You’re a beautiful, talented young lady…we can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!!!

Anne’s Senior Portraits

Anne is an absolute NATURAL in front of the camera! And I love that her personality and interests are so grounded in reality and truth, not bling and fluff. The organic qualities that she brought to the shoot were absolutely AMAZING!!! It was so much fun photographing the raw beauty of this lovely young lady for her senior portraits. I just can’t believe how fast she’s grown up!!!

We’ve known the Doshers for a long time and love this family to pieces! It’s an honor and a pleasure to now photograph their second daughter’s senior portraits. It’ll be fun to see if their son is as photogenic as their beautiful daughters when it gets to be his turn. 🙂

Hannah’s Senior Portraits

It was an honor and a pleasure to photograph Hannah’s Senior Portraits for her this week!

Hannah is a beautiful young lady and star volleyball player. Her family is from Texas, vacationing in Beaufort for the holidays. Being the free-spirit she is, and marching to the beat of her own drum, Hannah decided not to do the “usual” senior portraits that all her friends were getting done back home. She wanted something UNIQUE!!! So we hashed out a plan to do all kinds of cool portraits of her in historic downtown Charleston, picturesque White Point Garden, and gorgeous Folly Beach!

We had an awesome time and captured some killer shots! Congratulations Hannah!!! And best wishes for whatever dreams lie ahead…
