Charleston Christmas Card Photos: The Boninos
I love when my clients give me room to play with their family sessions and get creative, and Lisa and Jarod were totally game to think a little outside the box for their Christmas-themed Charleston portrait session… which meant I finally got to realize my dream of photographing a family portrait at a Christmas tree stand. More on that in a minute.
Lisa and Jarod brought their two adorable pups, Riggs and Madison, along for the first half of our shoot on the beautiful streets of downtown Charleston, and their fur babies were basically tiny models. Then again, both of their pups compete in dog agility, so Riggs and Madison might have been more disciplined than say, my dog.
The homes downtown are decked out, y’all, which added so much holiday cheer to our portrait session. I’m loving all the giant wreaths and oversized bright bows! Lisa brought along a couple of scarf options, which is a smart way to mix it up a bit while you’re being photographed.
After roaming the streets of Charleston for a bit, we headed to Mount Pleasant for the second half of our photoshoot. The people at the tree stand were more than accommodating - a huge shout out to the Christmas tree stand on the corner of Mathis Ferry and Highway 17 - and since it was early in the morning we basically had the place to ourselves.
Winter might be elusive in the Lowcountry, but the rows and rows of beautiful evergreen trees added so much holiday cheer and such a festive element to our Christmas card session, not to mention both the light was gorgeous. I am so in love with these photos, I actually want to do a shoot like this next year for my own Christmas card!!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. It’s been so lovely receiving everyone’s Christmas cards and seeing all the beautiful photos!
