A Charleston area Christmas – We made it!!!

My office has felt a bit like Santa’s Workshop this season.  Since October, I’ve been photographing sessions, editing & delivering sessions, and processing print orders for my awesome clients.  On one hand, it’s super fulfilling.  Once I get into a groove, I really enjoy editing photos.  I LOVE hearing how much my clients like their galleries.  On the other hand … my Fitbit buzzes me on the regular to get up and get moving, and my response to most things has been, “I can’t, I have to edit.”

BUT — last night, I delivered my final Christmas session gallery.  Triumph!  And I celebrated by promptly going to bed and sleeping 6 hours.

It was a really good holiday season.  It was my first time photographing at Southerlyn Farms in Holly Hill.  If they host photographers for sunflower sessions next year, I will likely be back!  summer-1-850summer-1-852summer-1-851summer-1-849

And then, I went back to Lebanon Christmas Tree Farm for tree farm photos.  If you haven’t heard of the farm, definitely check them out – they are on Good Housekeeping’s List of Best Tree Farms in America.  (And check out their photo, while you are at it.  haha.)  I had a lot of new clients this year for tree farm minis, and they were just the sweetest.  As you can see.  🙂


And finally, I wrapped up Christmas season in downtown Charleston.  I had been a little worried because they were flooded out from the King’s Tide all weekend, but we were sunny and dry for our sessions.  And it was, per usual, beautiful downtown.  Just check out some of these photos.  Total eye candy!


I’m wishing you all the joys of the season, however and whenever you celebrate.  I’m going to spend my free time documenting our family’s celebrations (one birthday down – gulp – my 38th, two more to go) and Christmas festivities.

<3  Thank you to my clients this year, you are the best, and make this side business of mine very valuable to me for many reasons.
