The Bessinger Family

Katie cannot remember the last time they had a full family photo session, but I'm glad we could make it happen before Hurricane Irma decided to come along. Litchfield beach was perfect for their shoot, as they were vacationing right along this beautiful place. I'd also like to give a shout out that Carl & Katie are high school sweethearts from my high school, and are still going strong in love & marriage. Everyone please give them a mental round of applause, and here's some of my favorites!






Again, it was a great honor to photograph your family, Katie. Thank you!

Always,

The Luna Family


I was very happy to photograph Juli & Gustavo with their pup, Rigby, just the day before they moved out of state. We were worried about rain, but we were fortunate to not have a downpour during our session! They rocked their session, and here are just some of my favorites!


Photo on right is retouched & inspired by their last name





Thank you Juli and Gustavo!

The Manges Family Expecting Levi

It's been wonderful photographing the Manges through the years! This time, we photographed a maternity session as they're expecting baby Levi in less than 2 months! We had a breezy sunny day to photograph them, and here's just some of my favorites from this session.





A couple times during the session, Marlee was the photographer. Here, we let her pose her parents. I hope to remember this moment for many moons to come, as it was absolutely hilarious and amazing. She had them facing each other, and asked for them to kiss. When her mom asked how they should kiss Marlee said, "Like this," expressing a fishy face! 



Carrie & Shane, this was a delightful session! As always, thank you for choosing me to photograph your lovely family. Levi is incredibly lucky, and Marlee will help him know how much.

Always,
Des'ola

Victoria + Cody


This was the first time I met Victoria and Cody. Victoria had a vision to have vintage-inspired photographs made during our session. If anyone knows me, they know I was truly thrilled about her asking me to do this photo shoot!! I have a lot of favorites within their session, but that would probably have me posting their entire shoot. So, here's just a few I'm sharing! 












Thank you both for giving me the honor to photograph your love and your first dip!
Also, Cody, thank you for your service in the U.S. Air Force! "Aim High!"

Always,

David & Sarah's Mini

This weekend I got to see David & Sarah to photograph their mini session. That was the first time anyone ever met me for a photo session and their husband was juggling as we walked to each other. There's a first for everything!! I'm happy I got to photograph them again this year, as they're some of the most easy-going couples I've ever photographed! Here are some of my favorites!





It's great to photograph you two, David & Sarah!


Always,

Bessingers in Charleston


I've known the parents of the Bessinger kids since high school, and this was my first time meeting their little ones! We had lovely weather for our stroll in downtown Charleston, and they were wonderful to photograph! Here's some of my favorites from our session:







Thanks, y'all!

Always,

Mr. & Mrs. Griggs


Several years ago, I photographed the Griggs wedding. I'm happy to say I photographed them again this weekend. It was bitter cold (for the south) and dreary out, so we did most of our session inside their home. Their pups joined in for a photo, which was super fun! Without further adieu, here are my favorites from my first session of 2017!




Thank you, David & Sarah!

Always,
Des'ola
