I had the cutest little birthday boy in the studio this morning for his one year session. I just adore the curls and hope he never loses them! And yes, he had an amazing sounding laugh to match those smiles(I just had to video it so there’s a very mini movie below…)!

This family vacationed here and ended their trip with a  photo shoot downtown. We had a quick peek of sun but the prettiest blue sky to end their session along the battery. We looked for dolphins and had fun dodging the water splashing on the battery wall.

Their youngest had me call him Lightning Luke. Such adorable kiddos that kept me entertained!

This house with the blue shutters is one of my favorite Charleston homes along one of my favorite Charleston streets!

My summer family shoot season is nearing it’s end and I have no weekend dates left until September, BUT you can still snag a spot to my solar eclipse mini sessions happening August 20th!

Loved this session. You never know with a newborn, how things will go, but this guy made it so easy for me. One hour and done. I did a little instastory of my studio, back of camera peek and then the process to the sneak peek if you want to go follow me on instagram and see it!

In many photos, I do place the hands, but the babies also decide for themselves how they want their hands. In this set, the 3rd from the left on top, then the first on the bottom were all baby. I wanted his head towards the light, but he placed his sweet hand under his face so of course I snapped a shot before turning his head ‘my way’. In the next photo, I wanted his hands up above his head, but he wasn’t  having it. I love his somewhat stern look, all while sleeping.

They say Charleston is the place to be for the solar eclipse this August so if you’re comin’, how about a mini session of your family while you’re in town?

These will be in downtown Charleston on Sunday evening, maybe morning too if I have enough interest.

Only 4 spaces available!

Mini shoots are a great way to get a taste of a family session for just half the price! 

I usually only offer outdoor mini’s one weekend in November, BUT one rare event can equal another right? Twice a year outdoor mini’s! YES!

Please email to request a time and book your date! TickledBluePhotography@gmail.com

$150 non-refundable deposit is due to reserve your date with remaining due on picture day. 

Immediate family only(up to 5)! 10 digital files. 20 minutes. Downtown Charleston sc!

This summer is Fa-lying by, isn’t it?

This week was our first week of just chill at home kind of stuff I feel since school let out. No camps, slow photo shoot week, and no huge appointments to make. It was nice, but boy did these two wild turkeys of mine drive me crazy! Let’s just keep it real, finding balance is SO hard. I had a week full of sessions last week and trying to stay on my 2 week turn-around, reschedule rained out shoots, schedule babies being born, answer a thousand emails(that I’m so grateful for) PLUS be the best mom I can be and keep these two entertained and busy was a feat to say the least. 

I wanted to do this post to remind you all who find your way here who is behind Tickled Blue. Me, just little old me trying to be a boss, an accountant, a picture taker, an email responder, a photo editor and most importantly a mom. All of my clients are AH-mazing and understanding when it takes me longer than a day to reply to an email (though that’s not standard) and I’m so appreciative, but as I get closer to my busy fall season & inquiries start to flow, I thought it was a good time to say, ‘hey it’s just me over here running this show’. I don’t have an assistant unless ‘Alexa’ counts as she keeps me jamming and jokes flowing, or ‘Iris’ my scheduler who keeps me organized behind the scenes.  Most of the time I can’t even answer the phone b/c of background noise, so email is always the best way to reach me. 

And just in case you wonder what it looks like when I do get to my desk during the day(and you can see why I don’t usually), it’s like this… Super hero’s are flying and my sidekick, Hallie, is usually behind me in my chair putting pencils down the back of my shirt, which surprisingly feels pretty good ;), or doing my hair like a princess. This is my beautiful mess, this fleeting phase of life I’m in, that I love and wouldn’t change for any organized desk or perfect schedule.  This is us…

 

During this hectic summer, if I don’t reply back to your email right away, it may be because I was knocked in the head by the Hulk or I’m trying to get all the pencils out of my shirt.

However long you have to wait for your gallery, whether it’s 1 or 2 weeks, I’m striving to blow you away with your photos and make them well worth the wait :)!

A maternity shoot in downtown Charleston is just perfect….if you can stand the humidity. I have to hand it to all of you mamas pregnant over the summer. You go mamas!

This middle of summer maternity shoot in downtown Charleston was just so lovely. Sweet couple, petals along the sidewalk, her floral dress and some sunshine peeking in. Love, just love this session!

 

Isn’t she gorgeous!!

That live oak peeking above that fence was calling out to me!

I loved meeting this blended family in downtown Charleston. We bumped up our time and got the shoot in before the rain. I love the serene vibe of these photos before the storm! It also made for some much more pleasant temps than normal for a July Charleston day.

Chubby rolls, laughter, newborn yawns and lots and lots of tickles filled my studio this week! I had 4 sessions there this week ranging from newborn to 6 months to one year old that kept things active over in Avondale!

Video is no longer standard, but an option. This family though, traveled all the way from Conway for their newborn shoot, so to make it worth their while, I did a few videos of their precious new addition. Those newborn movements are so gentle and sweet and worth documenting on video~ 

My newborn shoots are totally baby led. I wanted this one to sleep so badly though so I could get some more of my standard shots, but you know, his movements and open eyes are actually even better than that. He made his session so unique to him and that, I love!

Now booking 2018 due dates. Get yours on my calendar! TickledBluePhotography@gmail.com

What a cutie this little fella is. I loved having him in studio today and getting to use this moody light again!! My little studio is not much to brag about, but I love finding new ways to love it and this light is doing just that for me lately!

Look at those LEGS! Thank goodness mom decided to capture him at this age before the crawling starts and he loses some of this chub. 

I couldn’t pick a leg shot so 2 angles of those perfect rolls it is!
