Lauman Family on Kiawah Island

Photographing Jen & Bobby’s beautiful wedding 10 years ago was the highlight of my year! I absolutely fell in love with these two. They were even featured in a magazine:!!!

Fast forward to yesterday, and the same emotions flooded back as I had the joy of photographing their beautiful growing family. With two adorable boys, and joined by excited grandparents, we all met up at the picturesque Ocean Park on Kiawah Island.

I had so much fun catching up with their busy lives. What an honor it is to still be a part of their lives after all these years!

Martin Family on Kiawah Island

Hailing from Ohio, our old stomping grounds before moving here, I had so much fun hanging out with the Martin Family on Kiawah Island last night!

This was their first time vacationing to the Charleston area…and their first time being professionally photographed all together as a family! What an HONOR for me to be a part of their first family beach portrait session!!! I hope the experience didn’t hurt tooooooo much. 😉

Many thanks to Amy for organizing everything. You have a lovely family.  It would be a real treat to photograph you guys again any time!!!

Gaydosz Family on Kiawah Island

I’ve been photographing the warm and loving Gaydosz Family for many years now. Many thanks to Maria for organizing these fun shoots!
Each year the family grows and expand. It’s so much fun watching the children as their personalities develop and they truly come into their own! This year we missed big brother Steve and his family, with a prior commitment. But I look forward to seeing them ALL back together again next year for more fun times!!! 🙂

Attaway Family on Kiawah Island

It’s hard to believe that it has been 8 years since Michael & Carreen’s wedding! I must be getting old?!? 🙂
A lot has happened in those years. They moved closer to her parents. They both have great jobs. They have two adorable children. And Carreen’s brother, Chris, is doing great in med school.
But what I ESPECIALLY love, is that they’ve stayed in touch with me over the years! It’s always such a joy to me to share in the lives of such wonderful couples and their families. Getting to be with them during the excitement of their wedding day is wonderful. Getting to watch their dreams unfold is priceless!!!
So it was with great pleasure that I photographed their family once again. We met near the condo they had rented on Kiawah Island, where we found a picturesque boardwalk and a beautiful stretch of beach. Photographing family beach portraits is always so much fun…especially when the family is as wonderful as this one!!!  Many thanks to Candace for organizing this year’s shoot.
Trivia Question: Did you know Kiawah Island does not allow motorcycles on their roads?!?
