Oh goodness…these images make my heart happy. First of all because the backdrop is my favorite place in the world. Secondly, because Jamie is such a sweet, special girl to me and she probably doesn’t realize that so many others feel that way about her too:)
Last month, Evie and I packed up and headed south for another year of dance Nationals in Charleston, SC. Yes, I know…what are the odds right? It’s rough, let me tell you ;) We love this city and along with us is our dance family sharing a week of relaxation, beach houses and oh yeah…dancing. I don’t get the chance to do many Sweet 16 sessions but not every 16 year old goes to Charleston with her photographer in tow so you HAVE to take advantage! We got up EARLY and just started walking a few side streets and with Jamie there, every little nook and cranny of Chuck Town looked absolutely perfect!!!
You might remember we did Jamie’s sister, Jenna’s bridal portraits here last summer too! I tried NOT to use the same spots (especially since Jenna was watching-HA!) but I’m pretty sure Jamie made it her own. For the record, I tried to get Jenna to do a maternity session while we were there too (yay-baby Koons coming in November!) but that darn Jenna was barely showing while we were there!
We had our family pictures taken in this exact spot last summer too! Some things in Charleston you just have to get every time you are there!
We finished in town before the heat of the day hit then took the afternoon off before finishing up at sunset in Folly Beach. The light was crazy pretty! I also photographed ALL the girls from our beach house that night too..you’ll be seeing those too!
Hard to pick a favorite but Jamie laughing is GOLD! I adore her personality and her friendship with my daughter, especially.
JAMIE!!!!! YOU ARE GORGEOUS!!!! I can’t tell you how much fun I had doing these for you. Start thinking 2017! BOOM!
