Robyn, little Libby and I had a fun morning at a Daniel Island park. Robyn’s second daughter is due to arrive in a few more weeks (doesn’t she look fantastic!?), and she wanted a few shots just hanging out with her firstborn, marveling in her Twoness.
I don’t typically shoot maternity photography. Frankly, the trends of the genre are a bit creepy to me, so I leave it to those who specialize in it. That said, I was more than happy to document this gorgeous mom-to-be, who I last saw in an appletini bridesmaid dress at DeBordieu. I do enjoy unscripted family sessions, just watching kids as they explore, find treasures and ponder things.
As much as we all document the “big stuff” like first days of school, a lost tooth, costumes, birthdays and performances, so much of what’s magical about kids is the everyday stuff. Hopefully a few of these images will serve as a reminder of how gorgeous a pregnant mom can be and how special a little QT with a cutie can be. I know Libby will be a great big sis — even if she doesn’t get her way with the name she’s picked out for the baby.Pin It

Last Friday, I joined other bloggers around the globe in supporting For Japan With Love. The women who came up with the idea set a goal to raise $5,000 in Shelterbox donations. Incredibly, as of this writing, a whopping $58,726 has been raised to provide supplies and shelter to earthquake and tsunami victims. You may still donate if you haven’t done so yet.
Since last week, we’ve experienced a Supermoon, and trees and flowers around Charleston have exploded in their springlike glory. Today’s Faceless Friday post is all about enjoying sandal season. What a lovely spot to chill with a favorite sibling! Happy weekend to you.

Earlier this week, I wrote about commercial fisherman Mark Marhefka and the chefs and locals that rely on him for the freshest Lowcountry seafood. Since the Abundant Seafood post got a bit lengthy, I figured a sequel was in order for his family photos. His wife Kerry has an infectious energy which she currently channels into triathlon training and managing the household when Mark is at sea. Their kids are close in ages and stages to my own, so it was fun to shoot another snaggletooth and her zany brother.

As I look back through two computers and numerous drives archiving the year’s photos, I’m grateful for a fun year full of once-in-a-lifetime celebrations and the opportunity to capture the everyday moments of kids being kids. I’ve picked some favorites for a quick recap. For some of these it’s the composition, the expression, the color, the moment, the energy… oh, and I stuck to all horizontal shots because my blog design doesn’t handle verticals as well. (Hmmm, part 2 of faves?)
Thanks for the memories! Most of all, thank you for entrusting me with yours. Please keep spreading the word. And take a moment to comment at the end of the post to tell me which images are your faves (or if I left yours out). See you in 2011!

Here they are. The Looneys! Years ago, we were neighbors, and their eldest was one of our first babysitters. Now, their youngest daughter could be our kidsitter, their son has facial hair (sorry Reagan!) and their eldest is taking a semester off from school to work at Disney (thus the nifty headgear toward the end). What a fun-loving, God-loving family. He’s the music minister at Northwood Assembly, and I still have memories of hanging out in their den watching their impromptu song-and-dance shows. The Osmonds have nothing on this clan. Oh, and did I mention they love to jump?!
