Folly Beach Family Portraits
These Folly Beach family portraits came about because Sofia was graduating from 8th grade. She asked for a trip to the beach as her gift from her parents, and that is what they did. To make this time even more meaningful, her mom Jenn decided to have family photos as well. They wanted to mark this milestone in Sofia’s life and to have photos to mark this precious, rare time together.
The Pieri family traveled from Charlotte for their Charleston vacation on Folly Beach. This was in June, right in the middle of the pandemic shutdown, so a beach house on Folly was the safest vacation possible. They cooked all their meals at the house. Additionally, they spent time as a family, hanging out on the beach during the day and playing games and watching movies at night.
For their Folly Beach family photos, we met up with the Pieris in the afternoon. We did a few photos in the back yard of their vacation rental house before walking to the beach. It was a fun, relaxed evening capturing this family of five having fun together. It was very clear that they are a strong unit, with respect and appreciation for each other. The Pieris had us create gorgeous photographic wall art from these photos. They wanted to experience them every day on the walls of their home back in Charlotte. The uninterrupted time they spent with their family during their Charleston vacation was a precious time. This family loves staying connected to that time, simply by casting a glance at their photographs each day as they go about their regular lives.
