Charleston Area Photographer Guide

This is a sponsored guide, presented by our valued local partners. While we love sharing these resources with our readers, we have not personally vetted each individual business represented here and encourage our readers to do their own research to find the best fit for their family.

As mothers, it’s safe to say that some of our most treasured possessions are family photographs. New babies, family milestones, special achievements, momentous occasions: we love the opportunity to beautifully capture these memories. There is nothing quite like the feeling you get when looking back on the photos of your squishy newborn, or that first picture of your new family. It is our hope that this resource will make it easier to find the perfect photographer to capture the memories you make. We hope you enjoy working with them as much as we do!

A special thanks goes out to all of the sponsors who helped make this guide possible. If you would like your business included in this guide, let’s chat!

I’m a CANDID lifestyle photographer. I have been photographing families in downtown Charleston, the IOP, Kiawah Island, and Folly Beach for 15 years. My portrait sittings start out posed and get more candid at the end. I like to start with the whole group together then groupings and individual portraits. Prints and high-resolution files available.

My photography is always real, never over-processed and my style has been described as spontaneous and organic. For the past fourteen years, I have shot hundreds (maybe even thousands) of life events from engagements to weddings to births and all the fun in between. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing some amazing designers and entrepreneurs and working with companies and brands such as Beautycounter, Puracy, Marysia Swim, Baeo Baby, Serena & Lily, Naadam Cashmere, to name a few. My images have been featured in C Magazine, Glamour, Fast Company as well as numerous other blogs and publications.

Julia Shaw
Julia Shaw was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Collegiate athletics brought Julia to the Midwest where she competed in DII lacrosse. She completed her undergraduate degrees in marketing & sport management, and went on to receive her MBA while working in Division I college Athletic Development (fundraising, donor relations and event management). Julia and her husband Jimmie made the move to Charleston to be closer to family, and to take advantage of all that the Lowcountry has to offer. From amazing people, to a vibrant city scene, great food, rich history, and the outdoors, Julia is thrilled to be back on the East Coast and to raise her children Perry (2 years) and Paxton (10 months) near their cousins. She is excited to connect parents with local businesses who share her same passion for raising a family in such a fantastic community. In her free time she enjoys being outdoors, watching and playing sports, trying new food, reading, traveling, and spending time with family.
