Family + Children

My job as a photographer is simply to capture the uninhibited joy that children express. Wether they are wild and crazy, or sweet and shy,  I don’t ever try to force kids to sit in formation. That never works! Well, sometimes it does if you bribe them with candy ;)… but usually if you see a photo in my gallery of children sitting together it’s because we played a game to get them in that position. Most of the photos I capture are candid- because running around like maniacs, dancing, and showing off their princess/ super hero poses is what kids do best- duh! I don’t want to take perfectly posed photos of your children. I want to photograph them having fun and celebrating life….and shouldn’t we all want to join them?!

    Melissa Miley,

    My family will be visiting Kiawah Island from June 29 till July 06, and we would like a couple family portraits, and some of just the kids. There will be 11 of us total and we were thinking of a beach setting. Could you let me know if you are available during that time and what the price would be? Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.
