The seasons are changing with later sunsets and more time spent outdoors. Life is slowly returning to normal after a few years of questioning what normal really means to us. With the warmer days, we welcomed a lovely evening beach session with my favorite Charleston photographer, Caitlyn Motycka. I’m currently putting together a small series of gallery wall ideas and want to share our gorgeous family session with you.
Charleston Family Photography
Family photos are never an easy task and Caitlyn makes the process so easy for you. First, she has the most amazing client wardrobe that will make you feel like a queen. Her dresses are stunning for every lady out there and if she doesn’t have something special for you, she will help find and source the perfect outfit. For me, I cannot stand running around the week of family photos and trying to find the perfect matching, but not exactly matching combination of outfits. Cue my husband, “oh, it’s time for another white linen shirt to hit my closet.” Caitlyn sent several moodboards and dropped off a few dresses to I could try them on and find the perfect fit. She also sourced the outfits for our children to complete the look!
On the day of photos, each one of our children lost their minds. Like kids do when there is a very important reservation and we need to get the pictures just right. Celia left her listening ears at home and was running in circles and kicking up sand. All they wanted to do was play chase and not stand still. Caitlyn amazes me, she always captures these moments and looking back, I’m in complete awe. These are the memories we want to treasure, the little looks and mannerisms, she captures them perfectly on film.
Our session finished with a trip down to the water and the real fun began. The kids splashed and played and Caitlyn captured our laughter and tender moments to treasure forever. If you’re traveling to the Charleston area or you’re a local resident, book your next session with Caitlyn Motycka Photography. She has photographed our family in the newborn stage and captured several family sessions for us over the years. You will love her amazing talent as she captures your Charleston family photo session!
