I have a lot of love for this family. Why? A lot of reasons, but one is they were there from the very beginning of my photography “career”. In 2011, I was not a good photographer compared to what I am now, but I knew that photographing milestones was what I wanted to do. Philip was one of my brother’s best friends in high school, so he spent most days skateboarding and participating in shenanigans in our driveway. He met the lovely Melissa in Charleston while he was attending the Citadel. I had just photographed my first family session ever when Philip called me and asked if I would go to the airport with him and photograph him proposing, and of course I said yes! After a beautiful proposal, they invited me to take their engagement session in Charleston…and of course I said yes, again! I’ve included a couple of these beautiful moments below.
From then on, I photographed their rehearsal dinner, their maternity and 1st years sessions for their daughter and now they’ve added a handsome little man to the mix! I’m so honored that I get to follow this awesome family as they grow, and can’t wait to share these images with you. I love the interactions between them all, especially big sister’s love for her new littler brother.
