Kiawah Island Family Photos – Charleston Family Photographer
I was so excited to meet Caroline and her big family while they were on vacation down in Kiawah Island. This group is so sweet and they don’t always get to be together in the same place at once. Everyone lives all over the country, so there is something special about spending a week together reconnecting.
Photographing families is such a blast, but it’s even more fun when you add bunch of families into the mix. Everyone has their own family dynamic, and it’s always so fun to see the little kids interacting with each other. All the little cousins were best friends and helped make each other laugh. It’s a great way for everyone to be included in the entire process. I always have the littlest family members stand with me and make funny faces at their parents or cousins to make them smile. These Kiawah Island family photos still make me smile.
It’s also so important to make sure mom and dad have their moment alone without their kids. They usually forget to ask for photos of themselves as a couple, but it’s great to include this in your shot list for the day. You want to have updated couple’s portraits! So many people don’t do this past their wedding and it’s so silly. Have fun with each other as well as with your kids throughout the session!
Kiawah Island is such a stunning backdrop for any kind of session. You can’t beat those water views, and the tropical foliage is stunning. We had thunderstorms rolling in right afterwards, and we narrowly escaped a huge downpour. We had all made it safely into our cars when the rain let loose!
