Your Photo Artist-Jodi

My Family

—> Capturing Classic Newborn & Family Vibes in Charleston since 2012!

I photograph Charleston's families, newborns, and children in a fun, simple and unique way while using a photojournalistic approach. Every session is different and unique to each family. We have fun, play games and through that I am able to get their genuine smiles as they're just having fun.

I love working with local families year after year & watching their families grow and change, but I also welcome anyone from anywhere to be a part of the Tickled Blue family if you're just stopping through our charming little town.

I didn't grow up in Charleston, but in a much smaller town 3 hours north in the upstate of SC. I made it my home in 2007 but fell in love with Charleston many years before as a little girl. I met my husband fresh out the the Army in 2002 where he served as an Army Ranger. After graduating from USC in Columbia, we moved to Charleston for his career with the Mount Pleasant Police Dept. He's the sensible one, I'm the creative one! I opened my first business(pet sitting) in Charleston in 2008. I still own that one on a very small scale, but Tickled Blue is where my heart is since 2012!

Our fam resides in West Ashley and consists of a son, Easton(2011) & daughter, Hallie(2014), 1 fur child, Chapo, and a cute little bunny rabbit named Blue Moon. 

I've always thought if you think of your work as getting to rather than having to, then you're doing something right. I feel so lucky to GET to do this as my job.
My style has always been simple. I think less is more(and better) for all of my sessions, meaning I don't use any props at all!
I LOVE getting to do this as my job, but my first job is being a mom to 2 little ones. One day I will take this on full time, but for now, my schedule is super limited. Between baseball, ballet lessons, and all of the fleeting moments of childhood I don't want to miss, I can only take on 2-3 families per month! Please contact me to book your picture day on my calendar and let's get started planning your one of a kind photo session:

My goal at every session is to keep it Real!

'Real: not imitation or artificial; genuine.'

Choose your photographer based on how their photos make you feel, rather than price! Years from now, the price you paid won't matter, but the quality of the photos you received along with the artistic eye of the photographer you chose will be paramount!

“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see & everything to do with how you see them” -Elliot Erwitt
