April and Steven are the sweetest couple and we are so glad that we happen to meet them last year!

Fast forward one year to today and now April and Steven are our official couple in front of the lens having their newlywed portraits done. :-) Read on to learn more about April, Steven, and their cute pup Gracie too.

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!
Portuguese Water Dog, Pete, was named by his family after the dog ‘Petey’ from the show Little Rascals. Just like Petey in the Little Rascals is a pal to lots of kids, the Hallam family's pet Pete is also a pal to a great number of children! Pete is a part of the Pet Therapy Program with MUSC's children’s hospital. Mrs. Hallam is Pete’s handler for the pet therapy and she also works as a vet tech at an animal medical center. They both very much enjoy the work they do. Our studio's job as a Charleston Family Photographer, is to capture pictures of the whole family, which includes furry family members too. :-) We just loved the Charleston pet portraits we took of Pete and we loved learning all about what he does and how meaningful it is for so many!
The Valerie & Co. Photographers studio is ethusiastic and borderline crazy for Charleston pet portraits! It's so great to provide perfect images that capture the personality of the animals we've met. Bulldog, Bowie, has a plenty of personality and he is a beloved member of the Gill family! The town of Mt.

It’s a lovely place to be, but for the Gill family, the best part of their home is probably the fact that they’re only 6 short miles from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. Bowie and his family happily spend a lot of their time at the school located in the historic city of
