Experience the difference

I’m sure that during your quest to find a photographer, you were shocked to see that the average price of Family Photography in Charleston is $500-$1200+. 

I think that’s just CRAZY! A family portrait session should not cost as much as a semester of college.

Why should you hire me? 

  • I have over 9 years of working photography experience.  This isn’t my first rodeo! 
  • I have a perfect 5-star rating on Google.  Customer Service comes first in my business. 
  • My edits will never go out of style.  Your imagery will be timeless! 
  • I help you with wardrobe selections and cosmetics for flash photography, and I direct and pose you to look your best during the session.  Attention to detail is one of my super powers! 
  • Did I mention that I am affordable?  With me, you can afford to do multiple sessions a year! Use your extra money to buy new outfits for the session. Hire my hair and make-up artist, she is amazing! 

What have you got to lose?  Give me a try! I promise that you will not be disappointed!

Why are you so much cheaper than your competition?

I haven’t always been this affordable, but like with everyone else, The Pandemic and the recession that followed almost put me out of business.  Photography is considered gig work, and not many of us gig workers have been able to survive the last few years. 

I decided to lower my rates because I saw the need.  In every online mom group or photographer group, I see endless requests for affordable photographers.  After researching what other experienced photographers were charging, I knew there was a gap that I had the ability to fill.  I am able to provide Charleston families with QUALITY, professional photography at a price that no other local photographer can.  Filling this gap will hopefully, help me stay in business for many more years.  

I am able to charge less because: 

  • I don’t pay rent for a retail space.  My studio is in my Mount Pleasant home, and I rent space at a local  commercial studio when I need to.  
  • I don’t have employees.  I am a one woman operation.  I do the administrative work, book keeping,  Marketing, Website design,  Set Design, Photographing, and editing all by myself. 
  • I don’t accumulate Business dept. Some photographers go crazy with equipment, gear and props.  All of my business equipment is paid in full at time of purchase.  
  • I have an amazing husband who supports me emotionally and financially.  Our Children are grown and have left home.  We now have more financial freedom than we did when we were raising young kids. This allows me to peruse my dreams, and be more competitive with my pricing.  

How long have you been a photographer?

Professionally?  Since 2015. As a Hobbyist?  Since around 2007.   More info on how photography chose me is on my about page.

Typically cheap photographers are new to the trade, operate illegal businesses, and are known to produce low quality results with poor customer service skills, but that is not the case with me. 

I am very experienced.  This is my only job.  I do not work a full time or part time job anyplace else.  I am licensed and insured and have a flawless 5 star Google Rating.  To improve my skills and my customer service, I invest in continuing education yearly.  I am fully invested and 100% dedicated to my craft and to this business. 

In this instance, you will get MORE than what you pay for! That is my guarantee!
