Check out this cute Folly Beach family session! Reagan and Theodore were so much fun to chase around on the beach. Photographing two year old twins is not the easiest task in the world but it is a ton of fun….especially when this is the result of all of our efforts! Poor Theodore literally fell down about 8 stairs just minutes before we began. Through tears and a little busted lip kept telling us “I’m alrighhhttt, I’m allriighhttt”…while his helpful sis tried to take off with his ice. Women. Despite the injury he rebounded very quickly and was all smiles, hugs and kisses with his sweet sister. The family comes to Folly Beach every year for a summer getaway from Connecticut. I know a lot of photographers tend to run from these types of sessions but I absolutely love doing them in addition to my wedding bookings. In fact, I look forward to shooting my wedding clients as their families grow too…it’s such a natural transition back and forth between the two for me as a photographer. During these beach family sessions everyone is always vacay laid back and in great spirits (well, when they aren’t doing evasive gymnastic maneuvers down a flight of stairs that is). When I get a down to earth family like this who is willing to just go out on the beach and play, I’m able to capture such great organic emotion and expression. I just love the little seersucker outfits on these two. The pastels really complemented the soft colors of the beach as the sun began to go down. I hope you guys come back again next year, I’d love to come play in the sand again with you
This 128 South Wedding in Wilmington, NC holds a special place in my heart for many reasons. I grew up going to church with Hannah since we were very young. When she asked me to shoot her wedding I was thrilled. I was even more excited when I found out they were getting married in Wilmington, NC and having their reception at 128 South. Travis and I had our wedding and reception there (insert Hurricane Sandy and a no-go Wrightsville wedding). It ended up being more perfect than we even planned. The staff at is pretty much top notch. At Hannah and Tyler’s wedding I found the exact same to be true. Hannah planned the day perfectly beginning with getting ready and a first look at The City Club at de Rosset and then their ceremony at Kenan Chapel in Landfall. We then took a trolley ride downtown to celebrate the “I do’s” the rest of the evening with drinks, dinner and lots of dancing on the deck under the warm glow of italian wedding lights. The venue was dripping with details. Beautiful lanterns, adorable signs, monogrammed pillows and peonies galore. I absolutely love getting the chance to shoot back “home” in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. My favorite shot from this wedding probably has to be the black and white image of Hannah and Tyler leaning into one another during the blessing upstairs at the reception. Hannah’s family experienced the loss of her precious Grandfather the evening prior to the wedding. I was so inspired by their grace and strength throughout the day. I think that particular image is such a sweet reminder that marriage is having someone to lean on always. Enjoy the photos and Congratulations to such a lovely couple.
Take a peek at Cecile and Mike’s Charleston Engagement Session!! How cute are these two!? Cecile and Mike opted for a downtown Charleston engagement session. We walked along the battery and white point gardens and got some amazing shots of soon to be married love birds. I had the best time getting to know them both. I am in love with Cecile’s sequin dress and cannot wait to see her wedding gown on November 15th! Excited to be working with Amanda of Southern Chic Weddings on their big day. For those of you out there looking for styling and clothing options for your engagement session, take a few notes from Cecile here. The dress was a classic and simple silhouette but the gold sequins really set it apart. She chose to go ahead and do a run through of her hair and makeup prior to the shoot which is always a great idea. Mike wore a classic white shirt, sport coat, jeans and loafers. This engagement session is a great example of choosing pieces that aren’t overly trendy but stylistically represent your tastes. Enjoy some of my favorite shots below !
After what seems like an eternity I am so glad to finally be launching the new look and brand: Emily Baucom Photography. Five years into being a Charleston wedding photographer and I’ve never been more motivated and excited for the growth in my photography and career. After Travis and I got married in October 2012 I decided that I wanted to revamp my business with a look that is representative of myself, my clients and the exciting photographs I have yet to create…fast forward almost two years later and I am so happy to finally have completed the design process and can begin to share my work on a platform I am truly proud of. The new site and blog full of Charleston weddings and family portraits is online and I’d love for you to go and take a peek around! There are so many sessions I have yet to share! So bare with me while we still work out the kinks of the mobile viewing and as I transition all of my social media over to EBP! The old site will eventually redirect to this one in case any past clients wind up here, it’s still me!
Meet the newest addition to the family, my nephew James. He is the sweetest thing in the world. Enjoy his newborn session! I am so lucky to live right down the street from my two favorite nephews. Sweet Baby James you couldn’t be any cuter. The photos below were taken in my home on James Island which has the most beautiful light for newborn portraits! A wonderful discovery! I love capturing the moments at Weddings and Engagement celebrations. But when it comes to the emotional connection during a photography session. I would be hard pressed to find something that compares to a mother and her newborn child. Please enjoy the photos from this Newborn photography Charleston SC photo session.
Hope you enjoyed viewing the photos as much as I did taking them. If you are in need of Children or Newborn photography Charleston SC please Contact Me to discuss arranging a photography session.
