I met Holly while shooting assignments for her at the Charleston Regional Business Journal. We’ve been friends ever since and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing her and Clint’s family for several years. Originally it was just their 4-legged kids, now they have a beautiful 2-legged one too. J We met at the historic Boone Hall Plantation just down the road from their house. The early morning light was just perfect and we had a great time roaming the grounds and stopping for different shots. At one point, when I had everyone set, including 2-dogs and a 1-year old girl, this huge (think grayhound) bus slowly wanders down the famous Avenue of Oaks that was my backdrop…and proceeded to stop right behind us to let it’s FULL contents of elderly tourists out behind us!!! How inconsiderate was that? They could have just as easily pulled up 15 feet closer to the mansion and been out of our shot! But that’s the fun of working in a public environment. We rolled with the punches, moved on to a new spot, and came back to that one after everyone had dispersed.

Cami & I are animal lovers. She volunteers with the Charleston Animal Society. Plus we recently started donating our services to the Low Country Retriever Rescue organization by photographing Goldens that are looking for a new home. This is Mimi. She’s been abused, shot at, and found wandering the highways all alone. But you would not believe what a sweetheart she is…not a mean bone in her body even after all that! We adopted our beautiful Marley from the LCRR and encourage you to do the same. (Check out his picture at https://chrisandcami.com/blog/2009/08/28/introducing-marley-2/.)
