I specialize in fun, relaxed and creative on the beach family portrait photography in the Myrtle Beach and Grand Strand area. Sessions are relaxed and fun, I'm glad to try any ideas and family groupings you desire. I work with the viewpoint that I'm there to make a client happy, I do whatever I can to make sure that is the case. I'm not a business that sends out different photographers, I personally do a small number of appointments each week and I do everything myself from the photography to the final proofs.
What I do is a quite a bit different than a typical portrait photographer. I use a photojournalist style of photography. While I do suggest poses, I typically take around 300-500 shots in an hour or so session trying to capture the best moments and natural expressions. Sometimes my favorite shots are those that don't look posed, that look like a family enjoying the beach together. I really put all my effort into giving my very best work to my clients. I've had many clients tell me it was the nicest experience they have had with a photographer, I hope I can make you feel the same way.
I notice overly processed images on many photographer's websites. Instead of relying on Photoshop filters, mixing textures, vignettes and strange color effects, I prefer clear, crisp and clean color and black and white images that can only be done with Nikon's best lenses and a expert understanding of lighting and flash. However a reasonable amount of artistic and general touchup Photoshop work and special effects on all prints or albums sides included at no charge.

Includes 10x10 20 Page Lay-Flat style photo book
This is a fun coffee table photo book. The example below is designed for guests to sign at a wedding reception, but it can be designed like a typical photo book as well. This is a lot higher quality than a typical photo book, the pages lay flat when the book is opened up and they are printed on nice thick acid free paper.
