I was so grateful that family came to visit for Thanksgiving. I was super sick, but Liam definitely needed some distraction and play time with cousins. My brother-in-law Thomas came with his wife, Cheryl, and their two kids Daniela (7) and Joseph (4.) What a big help everyone was the entire week. I felt like the worst host in the universe, but Thanksgiving went off without a hitch thanks to Cheryl! It was the perfect way to spend the holiday.

I discovered this amazing park in North Charleston that became the perfect backdrop for a family holiday photo session. We had the idea of letting the girls decorate a Christmas tree and this wooded park was a gorgeous setting. It was definitely a challenge to get these little balls of energy to stay in one place but we pulled it off! It was a team effort:)

This woman is just stunning! Amy contacted me to take some portraits so she could try her hand in the modeling world. I say she’s got quite a career ahead of her. I love when client are just… easy. Amy’s easy on the eyes, easy to work with, laughed easily. It makes my work, well, not work. On top of all that, it looks like Amy barely had a stitch of makeup on, not to mention the complete absence of wrinkles… sheesh. We had a blast and I can’t wait to photograph her family some day!

I am really starting to love Throwback Thursdays. Old pictures are the BEST! I’m sure there are people out there thinking that pictures from the 80’s do not constitute the use of the word ‘old’ but hey, I was born in 1983 so I’m starting to feel slightly ancient.

The top left picture is from Easter of 1988. There is little old me to the bottom left holding my Aunt Lynda’s hand. I have a cast on my right arm from sticking it through a window a few days before. The storm door of that lovely house behind us had a glass window pane on the bottom, I wanted to go outside, ran full-speed toward the closed door, you get the picture. 12 stitches and a gnarly scar, Happy Easter! And I’m shooting daggers at my mom (third from the right) for some unknown reason. All she said was “You were mad at me that day.”

So the super awesome Easter 1988 pic reads: me (aka 5-year-old going on 25), Lynda (aka Jane Fonda), Regis (aka Barry Gibb), Missy (aka Jennifer Connelly), my mom Lori (aka Madonna, I totally thought she was Madonna…), my grandpa Walt (aka Elvis), and my lovely grandmother Barbie (aka Katharine Hepburn).

The recent family pictures below and right are from Thanksgiving last year in Orlando. It was truly amazing to see everyone together for the first time in a long time. I know this reunion made my grandmother especially proud and happy. She was pretty much crying tears of joy for days and days.

Dang, I love Throwback Thursdays!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Nicole Dahlkemper (top left) at a networking event back in May. Since then, she has become my dentist and I was able to take some business portraits of her and some new employees. Usually people loathe the dentist, but these guys manage to make it fun and even relaxing! The office is gorgeous, people know your name, and they actually spend time talking to you. It’s really a wonderful experience- and I say that having recently gotten 2 fillings from her. Not an ounce of pain or discomfort- that is amazing in my book! I can’t wait until my 2-year-old, Liam, is a little calmer and ready to have his teeth cleaned. We are definitely going to Water’s Edge!

This was Liam last fall when we still lived in Brooklyn, NY. Since moving to Charleston, SC almost 6 months ago (where does time go?!) everyone has been telling me how beautiful the fall is down south. It’s also the start of oyster season, which is basically like Christmas for me, so I’m super excited.

Well, Happy September! Fall is just beginning.

We are already 6 days into August and I cannot believe it! I am actually scrambling to get my fall promotions in line. Since I grew up in upstate New York, then lived in NYC for almost a decade, I guess I don’t think of fall until I wrap a huge sweater around myself to go outside. Moving south has thrown me off a bit since it’s 87 and sunny outside! I forget that the almighty holidays are truly just around the corner. Now that I think of it, I have seen Halloween candy in the stores… sheesh. Time really does fly when you are having fun!
