Tis the Season {Charleston Area Photographer}

The year 2014 is going to bring all sorts of great things.  I am confident of that.  At this point, I don’t know if it will bring me full-time business, a new job, better relationships, another puppy (yes- conversations about this are in the works), or more home improvement projects. No matter what, I know it will bring something new and exciting.


Last year, it was a trip to Germany and a new house.  This year… who knows.

So here is to a season of uncertainty, a winter that has felt like a spring, a spring that will feel like a summer, and a year that will be awesome.  What kind of things do you do when you’re unsure of what is next?


With a Wink and Smile {Mt. Pleasant Family Photographer}

I love having clients return year after year.  To see how a family grows and changes is one of those things I feel so privileged to be a part of.  The Neher/Ogden Family was gracious enough to ask me back this year for their annual extended family photos and we made a party out of it. Well, a playground party at least!

These kiddos are the best.  It was just another Saturday outside with the family, complete with dizziness from spinning, laughter from playing, and crying from leaving.  Happy 2014 Nehers and Ogdens!  May this year be as fun as a Saturday at the park.

Rain, Rain, Go Away {Mt Pleasant Family Photographer}

You can come back another day, but don’t let it be on this family’s session, please!  That’s how we felt all weekend.  There is a fine line when preparing to photograph a family on a rainy day.

In one had, you don’t want to risk getting caught in the rain.  On the other, you don’t want to reschedule and ignore all the wonderful anticipation leading up to the day.

So we risked it.  And it was wonderful.

Here’s to rainy days in party dresses and metal slides.  May your family always have the joy of childhood and stay ageless.

And One Ducky Please {Raleigh and Cary Area Family Photographer}

I know a little girl name Emily and she is as cute as a button.  Case and point: when at the park with all the ducks, she very kindly asked if she could hold one and take it her home with her.  World, meet Emily and her parents….

Between feeding the ducks, playing with the leaves, crying, and running were sweet moments between mom and dad, a family enjoying an afternoon at the park, and these precious memories. Thanks for letting me tag along with you, Emily!

First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage {West Ashley Announcement Photographer}

And now a baby in a baby carriage!  You first met these two when I wrote about their wedding.  I first met them surrounded by friends, laughter and fun.  It is hard to believe that Click-Click and I have been there for their proposal, wedding and now as they announce news they have waited all their life for.

The Cromptons are having a baby!

Dear Baby Crompton,

You are so lucky.  Your parents are some of the most warm, wonderful, loving, nurturing and caring people I know.  They have waited for you and prayed for you before they even knew each other!  Your mommy almost jumped over the moon with excitement when she found out you were expected and throughout the trials of pregnancy, she has been so thankful for you in her life.  So get ready, Peanut.  Get ready for the best ride of your life with these two.  They will love you like crazy, spoil you to satisfaction, and keep you well fed throughout the way!  Just remember to play nice with Charlotte….She is sorta queen of the castle.

Love, Auntie Steph

A Bundle of Cuteness {Children’s Photography in Charleston, SC}

I sponsored a parenting conference earlier this year and lucky me, met the Hoffman family through it!  Family Portraits on Daniel Island

The kids were super sweet and great fun to work with!  Hope these made Grandma as happy as could be!

Holiday Smiles {Daniel Island Family Photographer}

The Green Family won me in an auction earlier this year.  Rather, I won the Green Family!  I was so thankful to photograph their little Lucy for her 2nd birthday (you can see that cuteness here) and now their holiday pictures!  I love photographing Lucy, especially at this age, because you never know what she will do next.  She is girl on a mission and knows what she wants.  Spending the afternoon with these beautiful people was the best thing to do!

Family Portraits on Daniel IslandThanks for letting me join in on your family’s fun, Kelly and Tim!  You are great parents and I loved watching the two of you interact with little Lucy.
