It was such a treat doing a pet portrait session with 7-year-old Bedlington Terrier, Sadie Mea! She's a cute, white, fluffy, little lamb of a dog. ;-) And one of the best parts of her shoot was going down to the Melinda Armstrong-Wrenn's adorable I'On neighborhood shop, Sweet Olive, where everything has been perfectly decorated for the holidays. This provided us the perfect back drop for Sadie's Christmas themed photos! Keep reading to learn mare about sweet Sadie Mae and to check out the gallery of a few of her session photos!
We here at Valerie & Co. Photographers just adore photo sessions with our Brides, Families, Professionals, and covering special events like weddings, birthdays, and proposals. It’s heartwarming and so fulfilling to capture and give each person priceless memories and perfect portraits. But we also love when a doting pet parent wants to have portraits done of their fur babies too! These fuzzy, scaly, bald, or feathered friends are more than pets, they’re family and deserve a special picture placed up on the mantle along with the rest of the family. :-) It was such a pleasure to meet and photographer Melissa’s cute kitty cats for their pet portraits and we’re excited to share a bit about them and a few of the fun photos with you!
One of the many reasons we love Christmas time is you get to open up the mailbox and see all sorts of holiday cards that are filled with seasons greetings, love, and well wishes. :-) We just love love love to see Charleston Christmas Photo Cards!

Since photo cards are the most popular type of Christmas cards, our studio will reveal 3 ways to have the BEST photos in Charleston for your holiday card!
Merchant Mariners, Sondra & Scott, are expectant parents to a baby boy, due any moment now! Before the due date, Sondra & Scott scheduled a marina Maternity Session for sunrise with our studio, Valerie & Co. Photographers, which gave us some truly stunning images. :-) We're excited to be sharing a few of their beautiful Sunrise On The Marina Maternity photos here along with more about this sea loving couple and their time preparing for their baby boy's arrival.
Pregnancy is such a unique season in life, and even though some days may not feel this way, it can all go by very quickly. It's wonderful to look back at that time of anticipation, hope, and excitement, and fondly reminisce with maternity portraits because, before you know it, life changes and your sweet little bundle of joy has arrived! Once baby is here, you’ll then need newborn portraits. :-) Babies are precious, no matter how old, however, newborn photos are such treasures to have taken before that tiny-brand-new-baby stage is gone forever. Maternity & newborn sessions with Valerie & Co. Photographers go together like ice cream and cake! They’re both so sweet and your maternity session and newborn session will be the best way to celebrate and save those sweet memories of your growing family. This spring, the Griner family chose to bundle their Charleston maternity photography session and Charleston newborn photography session for a super sweet combo!
The rich spirit of adventure that children possess, is a wonderful and precious quality! Though kids seem to grow in the blink of an eye, as they age and develop, it’s amazing to witness how their experiences and explorations help shape their curious little minds into who they’ll become. Pictures that document each fun age, and the different formative stages, are a special treasure. Having your Charleston family portraits taken throughout the years will provide you with beautiful high-finished family photographs to cherish. Valerie & Co. Photographers had a fun session with adventurous young siblings, Leland and Edith, and both have big and fantastic dreams for the future!
