No sooner than I had posted on Instagram that we were moving to Charleston, Christy reached out to me. They were currently living in another state as well but would soon be moving to Daniel Island once their youngest child, Whit was stable enough to leave the hospital. Because Whit spent the first few months of his life in the hospital, they weren’t able to get newborn or family photos. I was so excited to be able to do a lifestyle family session for them – my first Charleston photoshoot!
From the second I walked into their home, they have been so wonderful to work with and to get to know. I didn’t realize how much I missed the south until I walked into their home! They pretty much captured my heart he minute I met them, and they also have the best southern accents. Boy, have I missed that being in Washington and now I get why everyone was so amused by my accent in WA! The two big sisters are full of so much personality and truly are the definition of joy. Then you have sweet little Whit. He has been through SO much – he truly is a miracle and the absolute sweetest.
We played, we laughed, and we took some precious photos. Keep scrolling to see more from their Daniel Island lifestyle session and be sure to check back soon for their outdoor session we have coming up!
If I could bottle up joy, I’m fairly certain this ^ is what it would look like!
The candid, “real life,” moments are ALWAYS my favorite! I would imagine that life with three children, three and under is chaotic most times, but oh so beautiful!
