Black & Burgundy Fall Family Session on the Columbia Riverwalk | Columbia, SC Family Photographer

When I think back on this fall family session on the Columbia Riverwalk, what comes to mind isn’t that it was literally freezing when we started our session, or even the gorgeous sunrise glow illuminating the Gervais Street Bridge. What I remember when I look back on these photos is family. Togetherness. Delight in each other’s company. Inside jokes. More than anything, I recall the joy and laughter that filled every moment of this session — the true mark of a family who can find joy in anything, as long as they are together!
I remember when Kristy reached out to me on Instagram to inquire about a family photo session this fall. She had a vision of photos along the Riverwalk in November when the leaves were golden, inspired by memories from a family walk there two years ago and the feeling that the autumn colors evoked. I absolutely love when families want to incorporate a special place into their photos, and it was such a thrill to be able to capture that vision for her!

Before our session, I always ask families what they want to remember about this time in their lives, and Kristy’s response was that “we have fun when we’re together.” More than anything, that was so obvious from the moment we met up to begin our session! It was not at all a challenge to get genuine smiles from this crew; everyone was so good-natured, and we spent so much of our session laughing, joking, and generally enjoying our time together!

Kristy and Daryl — thank you so much for bringing all of the JOY to our morning together! I can’t remember laughing so much during a session in a long time, and it was such a joy to be able to capture this time for your family! And I absolutely adored working with your two teenagers; they are two of the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful young people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and I truly hope to foster those traits in my own children as they grow up. I wish you four all the joy of the holiday season — may you continue to delight in the time that you spend together!
