Kiawah 2016 (Part 1)
Once I got to 80 pictures, I decided maybe this year desereved 2 posts. Theese are straight chronological, so there are some random food photos thrown in between actually intentional sessions between pool photos between snapshots.
Waiting for cookies, because there is ALWAYS something baking at the beach house.
I hate when people wander wander into my beach photos. Obvious I should get the WHOLE BEACH to myself.
My college roommate and I (we went to college here in Charleston) took our girls into the city for “shopping and lunch’…but mostly to take pictures. You can tell, because I bought them matching dresses for pictures.
This is the fence for the church where I got married.
This is the theater across from the church. I havea beautiful painting of it in the entryway of my house.
Chocolate cake for breakfast, because vacation.
Erin and I took the boys to the Angel Oak for their photo opp. It was SO crowded, even at 9 am. It’s a miracle there aren’t tourists in every single photo.
He’s winking, in case you couldn’t tell what that face was.
We take turns cooking at the beach, usually the same menu every year (because we’ve almost perfected cooking for 13) but Erin added these AMAZING shrimp and grits this year. They’re extra good because the local shrimp came from a only *slightly* sketchy cooler at the farm stand down the street.
We went through 6 pounds of strawberries in 5 days. Also, these babies think they are big kids who can sit on stools. Next year we’ll have actual babies again (mine PLUS another!) for a total of 8 children, so maybe it’s ok that these toddlers will be a little more self-sufficient.
Part 2 will include both our first, mostly failed family photo session and our second, much better photo session. Our stupid photographer (me) messed up her settings on the first one with a stupid rookie mistake. Thank goodness the weather cooperated for a do-over.
I miss you already, Kiawah.
