I was so honored that the beautiful W family chose me to do their family photos! We spoke at length about location, and we decided that live oaks and parks would capture the timeless Southern feel that they wanted for their images. I chose Hampton Park in Downtown Charleston, SC, because I feel it incorporates both the quiet serenity they were looking for, and offered some lovely, quaint city streets for variety.

I cannot express how I absolutely fell in love with this sweet family! Their two year old son is the happiest child I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and our time together was mostly playing games, tickling and having fun! Towards the end, I posed the three of them in front of a lovely live oak, and created a Brenizer portrait, which managed to capture the immense beauty of these majestic trees in an almost painterly way while featuring this family of three in incredible detail. Their family pictures are among my favorites, and I hope they choose me again in the future! Here are some of my favorite images from their session - there are a few black and white pictures thrown in, which is rare for me. I typically only edit in black and white to convey and enhance emotion, and I love when certain shots move me to do just that. I hope you enjoy them!
