Family Beach Portraits

Family portrait on the beach at the Isle of Palms at sunset

I have been photographing family portraits at the Isle of Palms, Kiawah Island, and Folly Beach for the past 15 years. One of my first jobs in Charleston was at a portrait studio, Portrait Innovations in Mt. Pleasant. There I learn posing techniques for large group portraits and individuals of all ages. I also picked up tricks on helping young kids smile and engage with the camera. 

Now that I have two young girls 6 years and 7 years I have discovered even more tricks on helping kids relax and smile in front of the camera. I also have a greater appreciation for the planning process of a family portrait. From the clothes selection to timing everything perfectly so all the kids are happy. 

If you haven’t already, be sure and visit the home page of my website and sign up to receive my Family Portrait Clothing Guide. There you’ll learn tips on selection clothing for your portrait that will help your family look more cohesive in a picture and let their personality’s shine.

Be sure and schedule your family portrait as soon as possible. Summer sunset portraits fill up fast, especially on holiday weeks. You can fill out my contact page or give me a call 843 442-0802.
