Just one image that was from a surprise session for Daddy for his Christmas present…this little girl managed to keep it a secret! Look for the full blog post soon with lots more adorable images.
Most parents of toddlers desperately want photos of their children that capture just how cute they are at that age – but also know that toddlers are, at best, unpredictable when it comes to photographing them. When they call to talk about a session with me, they make sure that I know that it might not be easy. I do my best to reassure them that I’ve got plenty of experience with babies and toddlers, and that I’m confident that we will get images that they love. I find that my particular style of outdoor natural light casual photography is perfect for capturing little ones whose developmental job is currently to never stand still! We don’t have to worry about them staying put on a backdrop or under a studio light. Most of the time, parents walk away thinking that the session was a bust – but then they are astounded at the final great images that always happen. Like these!
I would love to capture images like this of your toddler! I do photo sessions on location throughout the Upstate SC area into North Carolina, as well as in southwestern PA where I travel frequently. Please give me a call at 724-986-2625 so we can discuss your family portrait needs. Brevard NC child and family photographer
Despite the trends that I see bombarding me on Facebook, such as yellowed tints and fake sunflare and props, I’ve never been able to get on board with that sort of styled photo shoot. I much prefer a natural, relaxed, and casual portrait where the emphasis is on a quiet moment and the EYES. Real color and sharpness, as if you could reach out and touch him.
Just. like. this.
I will be posting more images from this session soon.

I have been photographing these children annually since they were born, but this year it almost didn’t happen. They had sports and activities and it was getting close to the holidays, so our potential dates were limited…and then there was the rain that we awoke to on the day of our session. Their mom and I decided that we would just do a quick shot for the family Christmas card, in the rain if we had to, and then do a full session in the spring. We were both sad at this because we know how fast they are growing, and Erin doesn’t want to miss documenting it. But, amazingly enough, when I arrived at their farm the rain stopped and the light improved and we did it! And the very minute that we finished, it started raining again! It just proves once again that I almost never have to cancel a session for weather, because unless it is actively pouring, we get it done.
After all, snuggling together for some photos with Mom doesn’t require a lot of time or space or perfect weather – but it does make for perfect images!
I love how soft and pretty the colors in these images are, and the closeness of Erin with her children. It’s pretty clear that they are fast approaching the days when they will not fit so easily onto her lap, and the images of these snuggles will be even more precious as time goes on. These are the types of photographs that mean the most. Don’t trust your memories to just anyone with a camera; a professional will make sure to capture you at your best. As a family photographer in Washington PA or in Clemson SC, I make sure that you love the way you look in the photographs.
