Of course mom, dad, and adorable big brother think she is perfect too. Some of our favorite shots are of big brother and baby sister. He loves her, wants to help take care of her, and it is precious to see.
Oakleigh melts your heart with her soft wispy light brown hair and her piercing eyes. It’s funny too that her little eyes just did not want to shut for some of the photo shoot, which is not typical for a newborn! This little one wanted to stay awake for the action and we got some pretty precious shots of her taking in her surroundings.
However, being a newborn is tough work, so we did get a plenty of shots of this angel asleep in dreamland.
The Weavers came to us before Oakleigh’s birth to do a Maternity Session at Boone Hall Plantation. That session was wonderful too! The whole family is picture perfect, Allison is beautiful and was absolutely glowing for the maternity shoot. Oakleigh arrived, and the Valerie and Co Photographers team was thrilled to do Newborn Portraits with the Weavers. It’s amazing to be the ones to capture the growing family in different stages and being a Charleston Family Photographer for the Weavers is special to us.
Oakleigh is so loved and you can tell the darling Weaver family were just meant to have Oakleigh. We can not say thank you enough to them for letting Valerie and Co Photographers be the ones to photograph these precious moments!
The Wimberly family is one of our dearest clients! We have been very lucky to be their Charleston family photographer for many occasions! Valerie and Co. first had the pleasure of capturing Kelli and Landon’s love as they said their “I do’s” and Kelli’s maternity session with their beloved dog Scout. Even though Kelli and Landon have now welcomed their first baby girl, Scout will of course always be their first “little baby.” Scout is always one of our favorite dogs to photograph during our annual “Dog Days of Summer” sessions!
This session with sweet little Anna Landi was full of curiosity and sleepless moments. Most newborns are very sleepy and pretty easy to pose, but this little girl did not want to be wrapped up and posed! Anna Landi was just too full of excitement and wonder about the world around her! Even though the session was full of laughter and baby tears, for mom, there was still an unspoken silence while sweet Anna Landi wore a special hand-made hat to match her late Uncle’s firefighter helmet in honor of his memory, life, love and service.
Just like many of our past clients, we hope to continue to celebrate each chapter in the Wimberly family’s life as their Charleston family photographer!

We just love photographing newborns, and sweet little Katelyn Walters gave us our “newborn” fix just before the holidays! Kelly and Jason Walters welcomed their gorgeous baby girl to the world and their family on November, 18, 2014. She was a perfect 6 lbs. and 1 oz. of adorable everything! Katelyn is one beautiful little baby, and we are so honored to have been the Walters family’s choice for their Charleston Family Photographer and newborn session.
Baby girl Katelyn has some of the most beautiful little blue eyes we’ve ever seen! This family’s session was like a dream, and we are so happy to have received and presented them with their gallery wrap canvas order that will be cherished by them and their family forever. Welcome to the world, baby girl Katelyn! We look forward to watching you grow throughout the years as your Charleston family photographer.
How could we resist the opportunity to photograph these sweet newborn twin baby girls, Vivian and Emmaline along with their parents, Julie and Barrett, and big brother Brody? Newborn sessions are such a joy to be a part of, but we feel it’s a truly extra special gift when we can photograph newborn twins! We are a Charleston family photographer, so we don’t normally travel for out of town newborn sessions, but when my friends, Julie and Barrett Gruber wanted me to photograph their sweet little daughters in Columbia, South Carolina, I was so excited– double the newborn baby cuddles, tiny toes, and adorable little faces to see and love!
We know big brother Brody will have so much fun helping care for and love his new baby sisters. What an incredible double blessing these new little beauties are to the Gruber family! We are so happy for you all, and it was such an honor to be your newborn photographer. Please enjoy many sweet, adorable, and love-filled images of Vivian and Emmaline with their happy family. They make us thankful to be a Charleston family photographer, and we would love to hear which images are your favorite from this session.
With parents like Aaron and Hailey, this little guy is guaranteed to stand out anyways…so with a name like Rockefeller, he’ll never get overlooked despite his common last name. SERIOUSLY people just LOOK at Rocka’s sweet, perfect little face! Precious in every way. I just couldn’t get enough of his sweet snuggles and baby noises today!
This session was done in our Mount Pleasant newborn studio, located outside of the I’On subdivision just three stoplights from the Ravenel Bridge. We have everything we could possibly need for any newborn session, hats, blankets, baskets, bows…the works! We have become “hoarders” of everything cute and newborn, haha! Our clients love it because all they have to do is show up (and for new parents, getting out the door often is a struggle in and of itself. We understand!)
Thank you for reading! This and so many more reasons I love being a Charleston Newborn Baby Photographer! See more here: 8 day old baby CamilleRead More »
Camille is here!
She’s here, she’s HERE! We’ve been so excited to meet this little one. Just LOOK at her full head of hair! We can barely stand it. Her cuteness factor is overwhelmingly high.
Several weeks ago, I got to meet Camille’s sweet parents and take maternity pics in downtown Charleston. It was such a fun session and I can definitely say I fell in love with this sweet little family-to-be. As a Charleston newborn photographer, I not only have appointments on my work calendar, but also “due dates” for my maternity clients! So as Julie’s date got closer and closer, we got more and more excited to get to photograph sweet Camille!
So, if you’re ready for your heart to melt all over your computer, here are a few sneak peeks from Camille’s newborn session!

In my life as a Charleston baby photographer and well, human being in general, I really do count myself as incredibly blessed.
I would be changing the subject of this blog post to tell you about all the blessings but today let’s just talk about one: THIS FAMILY right here. They are some of the sweetest, kindest, down to earth people you’ll ever meet. A family that sets the example of kindness and loving others. Whenever their names come up in conversations with others who even only know them a little bit, and the response is an overwhelming “I LOVE THEM!” Knowing I have people like that in my life just makes me smile from ear to ear.
Meet the newest little Rourk blessing, Elaina! She was 6 days old when we did their session inside their home and I couldn’t get enough of her soft skin and new baby smell! Here are a few of our favorites (but there are tons more from this session!)
View another session by our talented Charleston baby photographer team here: Newborn Baby Lainey and her family!
Be still my heart! Little Miss Lainey is absolutely the sweetest most precious baby! Already has her mom, dad, big sister (and her photographer too) wrapped around her little finger. Soft skin, perfect tiny fingers and toes, sweet button nose, cute little chin….LOVE! Is it strange to say that “baby smell” is my favorite part about being a Charleston newborn baby photographer? Haha! Well, I am a huge fan of everything BABY! Especially this sweet lil’ miss right here!
AND I can’t speak highly enough of this sweet little family! Her parents are so much fun and her big sis couldn’t be more excited to be a big sister! Can’t wait to share more but for now here are a few of our favorites!
Sweet baby goodness, look at this adorable little girl! Meet London, now 10 days old and cute as ever! What a blessed little baby she is, with 2 wonderful parents, a big brother and a huge extended family with tons of cousins! This little one will never be without a playmate.
She was such a dream to photograph in our studio this morning! I love being a Mount Pleasant Baby Photographer! We’ve had so many tiny, sweet fingers and toes to celebrate in our studio in the past few weeks!
I know you are anxious to scroll down (if you haven’t already!) so here are a few of our favorites from today’s session. We’ll post more when they’re ready. (We just fired up a quick peek for now!)

Our newborn, family, wedding and boudoir studio is located in Shelmore Village, next to Crushed Wine Shop…right outside of I’On near Bi-Lo. Come by and see us sometime!
What a treat! Look at this handsome little dude! Judah is 9 days old and precious as can be! What a little treasure from heaven! His name means “Praise the Lord” and we certainly do!
Just look at that perfect head of naturally styled hair! We just wanna eat him right up. I have been friends with this little guy’s mommy for several years now! We’re excited for future play-dates with our little ones…maybe even an arranged marriage? J/k. 😉
We have lots more to post, but here’s just a little preview from our session:
