Powell Family on Kiawah Island

I think it’s simply fantastic when extended families, who now live in different parts of the country, travel long distances to spend time catching up with one another. When Courtney called to say they were celebrating their mother’s birthday with a trip to Kiawah Island and wanted to schedule a family session for her, I was delighted to be a part of it! 🙂
Meeting up with The Powells at The Sanctuary last evening, we had so much fun capturing tons of fun images together!!!

Baby Christening on Seabrook Island

What an amazing treat it was to be a part of April’s Baby Christening at the beach on Seabrook Island!

April looked angelic in her delicate christening gown. Her parents, brother (Oscar the dog), uncle, and both sets of grandparents were all there to bear witness. Father Karl performed a beautiful ceremony in a peaceful setting, surrounded by nature, with the waves gently lapping at the shore behind us.
It truly was a special moment!!!

Many thanks to Julie & Ryan for allowing me to capture this joyous occasion.

Cohen Family on Kiawah Island

I’ve had so much fun communicating with The Cohens to plan the perfect family portrait session for them.

Marilyn and Steve love their kids to pieces, and are so excited to have this wonderful reunion with them on Kiawah Island. But honestly, I think they are even more excited to have some special bonding time with their adorable grandson! šŸ™‚

We met up at The Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, near where they are staying for Spring Break. It was a beautiful evening. Little Ryan was adorable. We all had a BLAST!!! And we were rewarded with a gorgeous sunset!

The Kim Family at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island

I had such a fun time photographing the beautiful Kim Family on Kiawah Island this weekend! The heat of the summer has finally started to subside. So it was an absolutely perfect evening. And their kids were simply adorable!!! šŸ™‚

As I was driving home, I couldn’t help stopping to photograph the AMAZING sunset over Kiawah Island…

Atlak Family at The Ocean Course

Hailing from New Jersey, it was such a pleasure to photograph the Atlak Family during their “cousins summer vacation” on Kiawah Island! šŸ™‚ Although it rained and stormed most of the day, we decided to go for it that evening. We were rewarded with beautiful light and AMAZING skies. But the best part was getting to know this awesome group of humans! We had so much fun together!!!

Callahan Family on Kiawah Island

Last night was one of the prettiest evenings we’ve had in a long time! And I got to work with one of the nicest families you could ever hope to meet!!!
The Callahans have been vacationing on Kiawah Island for several years. Before this trip, Julie reached out to me about having some updated portraits made now that the kids are older. I arrived at their villa just as “Golden Hour” was beginning to cast it’s magical light on our corner of this amazing planet. The kids were in great spirits. And we all had a BLAST, capturing a variety of fun images together!
I’m so glad Julie & Mike contacted me. It was an absolute pleasure working with their wonderful family!!!

Evans Family on Kiawah Island

10 Years!!! That’s how long I’ve been photographing the Evans Family during their annual summer vacation on Kiawah Island. Their youngest daughter just turned 10, and their oldes son is heading off to Duke University! What a joy it has been to watch this beautiful family grow.

As usual, we met for a sunrise session at their home, right on a beautiful stretch of beach. After rescheduling from a few days ago when the skies were gloomy and gray, it was so uplifting to see the sun rise out of the horizon and punch through the clouds!

We had so much fun, and captured a variety of wonderful photos. I can’t wait to see what the NEXT 10 years will have in store for the Evans Family!!!

Nick & Sarah’s Kiawah Island Engagement

Nick & Sarah are ENGAGED!!!

Early yesterday morning in a secluded stretch of beach, without another soul around, Nick asked Sarah to be his wife. She said YES!!! šŸ™‚ Although they drifted apart after high-school, the two of them have known each other since grade-school. So when they re-connected several years later, it didn’t take long for the spark to re-ignite!

After his surprise proposal, Nick had another secret in his bag of tricks. When he and Sarah returned to the condo, Sarah’s family was there waiting!!! Nick had arranged for his family and her family to fly in to surprise Sarah and help them celebrate the exciting news!

After spending a fun day together as one big family, I met up with them at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island to commemorate the occasion with some authentic engagement photos and a few family portraits! With permanent smiles on their faces from the day’s big events, Sarah & Nick were so much fun to work with!!!

Please help me CONGRATULATE this beautiful young couple as they begin their new journey together…

Hassen Family on Kiawah Island

It always warms my heart to see families getting together for the holidays! With the grandparents flying in from California, and “the kids” driving down from Tennessee, the pandemic keeping them apart for most of last year, I had so much fun capturing these beautiful memories for the Hassen family on the morning of our nation’s birthday!!!

Whitney Family on Seabrook Island

What a joy it was to hang out with Kristin, Rich, and their adorable kids last evening. It was unseasonably mild for this time of year. So we enjoyed being outside at their rental house and on the golf course…laughing, joking, and making beautiful images for them to remember this special time together! 🙂 Many thanks to my friend, Mic, for referring the Whitney Family to me. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know them!!!

Kurcsak Family Reunion on Kiawah Island

I had so much fun photographing the Kurcsak Family Reunion at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island the other day! I’d photographed Stephanie and her family before. So I was delighted when she called and asked if I would photograph this crazy gang. šŸ™‚ We had a beautiful evening with great light to work with…and had so much fun creating tons of great memories for them to remember this special time together.











































Morris Family on Kiawah Island
