When Michele first mentioned a Pinkle Toes Workshop Reunion in Charleston, I jumped at the chance for her to photograph our family there. Michael proposed in the gazebo at the battery, and oh, how special to have a photo of the four of us there. And to have Michele photograph our family….eeeek and yay!!! Michele is such an amazing photographer – so creative and fun, and it was awesome to have our family photographed by her! So not only did we go through all of the normal session planning, but I also had to figure out a route of Charleston downtown for our session, figure out how to check in, get Michele from the airport, and be at the house for my hair and make up to be done. Michele is a rock star – this is kind of how the day went. We arrived in Charleston around 12:30 and ate at Jack’s Cosmic Dogs. Michele had been messaging me that her connecting flight was delayed…still delayed… It was also starting to look dark and cloudy. (I did not mention this to Michele. Weather.com’s hourly forecast looked promising that the sun would come out. You never know if it’s going to happen or not the way the forecast says but I just kept hoping.) We then were able to get the key to the beach house where we were all staying early at 1:50 (they weren’t sure how early we could get that day, even told us 3PM was a maybe) We got to the house and brought our stuff in. Michael then drove thirty minutes to the airport to pick up Michele and another friend who flew in early from Denver for the workshop reunion.(Husband of the Year) I had twenty minutes from when we got to the house until hair and make up got there. *I highly recommend having your hair and make up done for your family photos. We barely had a minute to spare to have mine done. It was such a great experience – she very quickly put my hair up, and I’ve never had airbrush make up before. lovvvveddd it. So I basically didn’t have to get ready at all, and everytime I look at the pictures, I’m so glad I had it done. I also liked my hair up because I didn’t have to worry with it and could just focus on having fun with my boys. The jasmine was blooming everywhere in Charleston and we put some in my hair which was special, and I loved that we were able to capture it in the photos.Thank you to my friend Brooke who convinced me to wear the blue and coral dress that I probably would have never tried on. And huge thanks to Little Apple Styles for helping me find three boy outfits to match PINK. Kind of a miracle – thank you, Ericka!

So you can see, a lot of work went into this day and it’s kind of amazing that it happened. Harrison was also teething really badly so thank goodness he took a nap on the way downtown and woke up refreshed for his portraits. Owen and Michele were also bffs right from the beginning.(see here) And our session, well, it was just plain FUN. We started at the gazebo where Michael proposed because it was important to me to have a photo there. One of the reasons I love looking at the photos – these boys are my dream come true. I didn’t know all those years ago when I was pouring my heart out praying for my husband that these sweethearts would be such a dream come true. How special to be able to come back here with our family at the spot where Michael proposed.When I told Owen the story of Michael proposing, he said it was “the loveliest story he’d ever heard.” I love the images at the gazebo – my sweet boys – so many answers to so many prayers. The photos capture our family and our little ones’ personality so perfectly, and I love, love, love them. Michele captured us together – just being happy, and just being us. When Michele sent me the link, I was standing in Whole Foods waiting on a smoothie, and the tears just poured. What a treasure these are!

After the gazebo, we strolled down Bay Street I think, and the photographers that we are, Michele and I were oohing and ahhing over all the pretty sights and the absolutely stunning light. (The clouds went away- yay!)  So we just kind of stopped and took a few photos, and walked a little bit more, snapped a few more photos, walked a little bit more. Michele, of course, had all kinds of amazing ideas to capture the light, the beautiful Charleston background, and our family. Someone was at Rainbow Row so we went down another street and then came back. (And did she not take the coolest photo ever of Rainbow Row. I’m so excited to have a big canvas of it!)  We ended our session at the Waterfront Park in the Pineapple fountain which Owen LOVED. He couldn’t wait to put on his shades, splash around and try out his new sailboat. Harrison however…was not so impressed. I am shocked Michele got one image with his sunglasses on! Afterwards, we got some Belgian gelato to celebrate!

It’s kind of amazing how much we squeezed into one session, and it was. so. much. fun. It was fun being a client, too! And now I have to start planning where I am going to hang all out these photos – I can’t wait!

Yesterday morning was such a sweet session at home…especially since the little one had not napped but was in such a great mood for her one year portraits with her sister. They giggled and giggled. I especially loved big sister’s pink dinosaur necklace – so cute! We did make dinosaur noises, and I also got to hear some wonderful music on the piano (more pictures to come soon!) You know I have to check the weather constantly for my job, and it’s ALWAYS changing so I was a little unsure of how it was going to be yesterday. It ended up being beautiful in the morning, and we were also able to take some photos outside, too! (More photos of that soon, too HA!) but for now, a preview of these two adorable little ones!

These two were a joy to photograph. We laughed and laughed. I felt like the allergies were so bad this week I was tearing up anyway so laughing just made it worse – ha! We had beautiful light unlike the rainy week we’ve had this week! I bet this location looks completely different now – I was amazed at all the green everywhere when I was driving today. (So yay for rain as long as we don’t have to cancel sessions! April flowers bring May flowers!)

According to Jenna…

What was your favorite part of the session? Getting into fun poses!

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? Just about looking natural.

How would you describe your perfect Saturday? We like to go on “adventures” to try out barbecue places around the area!

It was such a joy to be able to photograph my sweet niece’s newborn portraits. It was a rainy day the morning of their portraits but big sister was super happy when I arrived and so excited to show me her baby sister. We were able to get so many sweet images and I love the one of the girls napping we were able to sneak in at the end before big sister woke up! These really were so much fun (love the one of my niece staring at herself in the mirror – ADORABLE!) And the two of them together, just precious. We sang a lot of Sophia the First songs and were able to capture some sweet memories.

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? That she was perfect!

What was your favorite part of the session? I loved that we didn’t have to worry about going anywhere, that took part of the pressure off of us, especially with a two year old at home as well. We could change their outfits easily and my two year old could take a nap when she was done with her part. I also love that the colors of everything go so well hanging on the wall.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous before? It was a great experience. We got to show off our new baby and just enjoy how sweet and cute she is right now. I was nervous she might not sleep or we couldn’t get the shots we wanted, but it turned out well. Becky was really patient and helpful and knew how to get her to do what we wanted.

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Just to relax and have fun and just get the shots you can get. The kids make the rules of the pictures, but you’ll get some beautiful pictures!

Did you have a sentimental item at our session? We had a christening gown that my mother, aunt, sister, eldest daughter, cousin and I have all worn. She was the seventh girl in our family to wear it. It is about 50 years old and has so much history and memories in our family.

How did big sister react to the baby?  She loves her sister, but doesn’t have a lot to do with her. She likes to look at her and rub her head sometimes, but is into her own things right now. When she first came to meet her in the hospital she asked if she could pet her new sister.

How would your describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Quiet, at home just spending time in the same room.

Any advice for other families picking out wardrobe? Just feel comfortable and even simple things look really cute on little ones.

This little one’s Mama was so patient with rescheduling..waiting for us to have a good day of decent weather. Finally, a day that was supposed to be 70 degrees. It was kind of misty when we got to the park (thank goodness it stopped!) And at one point, we thought it was starting to rain but it stopped. And I think it started pouring later that day, but we got to squeeze in his one year Mommy & Me session without any problems! He had a Mickey Mouse birthday party, and his mama made him the cutest decorations! He even let us take a few with his cute little hat. I couldn’t believe how fast he was walking – he was happily exploring the park in his adorable little shoes. Part of the fun of photographing little ones’ first year is seeing how much they grow and change so quickly!
