Meghan & Liv | A Mother-Daughter Session at Hunting Island State Park | Beaufort South Carolina Family Photographer

Sunset sessions in South Carolina are some of my favorites, so I was beyond excited when Meghan reached out to book a mother-daughter session on Hunting Island Beach. It turned out to be a pretty chilly Fall evening, especially by the ocean, but we explored and played enough to warm up quickly and create some magic. In addition to sharing some beautiful images from our session in this post, I have an exciting announcement for you!

From now on, all sessions in the Beaufort area are no longer priced as regular travel sessions. What does that mean? —- Well, rather than the standard session fee plus flight, rental car, and lodging, these session will have a flat travel fee of only $175. Seriously, that’s it, no matter when you book.

I’m talking to you Beaufort, Port Royal, Lady’s Island, Bluffton, Hilton Head, even you Savannah, Tybee, and Charleston folks who want to pencil in a little drive to the Lowcountry to make some magic together.

This applies to both couples sessions AND family sessions - everything booked in the Beaufort area! I am SO excited to be able to offer this discount to you guys and to be spending more time creating with you in the Carolinas.

If you’re ready to book your session, have a question or just want to say hello, please do so here!

Meghan asked me to try to incorporate this ring into a photograph because when Liv is older it’s going to be passed down to her. You might notice it standing out in a few other photographs, but this particular ring shot happens to be my favorite - it’s the kind of image I see Liv holding in her hands in 20 years while wearing this ring on her own hand as she and her mom thumb through a photo album and tell stories about this day, about this time. The magic and transcendence of photographs never ceases to amaze me.
