Folly Beach Maternity Session | Charleston Maternity Photographer

Motherhood

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to share this Folly Beach maternity session with you. But first…a little story. Soooo it’s no secret that since moving to Charleston I have been learning how to shoot outdoors and particularly in the sun. We just didn’t have a lot of that in Washington and most of my work was indoors. Anyhow, we know that, I digress. So this the sun is out, it’s raining, the sun is out, the clouds are out, back to sun – yayyy we will get a pretty sunset…but hold on just kidding now it’s overcast and what little sun is there is basically gone and it’s only 5pm. Yeah I did that dance and prayed my client would arrive early. No worries, she did (thank you Ashley!) and I played it cool.

Okay, so now on to the bliss that was this beach maternity session. It all started before the session even took place. Social media gets a bad rap and rightfully so in some regards, but it also does SO much good. It’s allowed me to market my business and build community with other women and Mama’s online. Without it, I wouldn’t have met Ashley. She is the sweetest person ever and an incredible mom.

Now, let’s talk about THE dress. It was absolutely stunning on Ashley. We worked together prior to her session to find a flowy dress that would be great for the beach. After going back and forth between a couple, we decided on this one and it could not have been more perfect. And guess what?! It’s now a permanent piece of the LRP Client Wardrobe, which you have access to when booking a session with me. 🙂

I had these best time with Ashley and her daughter. Their bond is SO special and it was a lot of fun getting to witness and document that. Sammie is going to be the best big sister to her baby brother…and she’s my new BFF. I still have the 11 seashells she collected for me. See? Again, I tell ya, I have the BEST JOB EVER!
