Our studio takes on limited photography sessions each month in order to focus plenty of time and attention crafting authentic, artistic images and caring for each of our clients. Booking early is recommended.  Sessions are scheduled for Monday through Friday.  Limited weekend availability is reserved for those clients who have signed up for The Collective. 

It  is very important to me to create timeless images as well as find high quality fine art pieces for your family.  All portrait collections include all your digital negatives with print release along with tangible portraits, framed wall art or custom heirloom albums. 

While I specialize in newborns and maternity, I also love working with children and families to save precious memories in portraits that will be cherished for several generations to come.  My style is most closely considered lifestyle portraiture.  While I do a few formal poses at each session, I much prefer to let your children be themselves and encourage playing, tickling, hugging and include the parents in that as well!  It always makes for fun, relaxed sessions and happy children and parents!

I offer a carefully curated line of fine art heirloom products including fine art prints, wall art/canvases and luxury heirloom albums as well as beautifully printed birth announcements/holiday cards.  I believe in both tangible heirlooms in your hand and home as well as digital negatives for safekeeping.  Session pricing starts at $550+.

 If you are considering booking your newborn, maternity or baby/family/children's session with me, I encourage you to connect with me soon to book your session.  It’s never too early to get started customizing your portrait experience!

Ready to commission your session with CHP?  Call me at 912.266.6100 or connect with me here.

The largest barrier island in the Golden Isles, St. Simons Island lies across the immortalized Marshes of Glynn, made famous by poet Sidney Lanier. Moss-draped oaks line the winding island streets, creating a picture-perfect image worthy of a Faulkner tale.

The island’s villages offer a charming and unique selection of shops, plus a variety of hotels and lodging options to fit your needs. View current specials and packages before booking your St. Simons Island getaway.

St. Simons Island History

St. Simons Island is dotted with exceptional historic sites and attractions, from the St. Simons Lighthouse Museum—a working lighthouse built in 1872—to the Bloody Marsh Battle Site, where, in July 1742, British and Scottish soldiers protecting colonial Georgia defeated a larger Spanish force in a battle that helped end Spanish incursions outside Florida. 

Fort Frederica National Monument, which preserves archeological remnants of the local British colony and its defense against Spain, and historic Christ Church, Frederica—one of the oldest churches in Georgia, with worship held continuously since 1736—are located on the island’s north end. History buff or not, you won't want to miss Christ Church's picturesque and somewhat haunting grounds.

Toward the southern tip, the Maritime Center located in the restored U.S. Coast Guard Station provides fascinating glimpses of the area’s natural evolution, while highlighting some of its maritime and military history.
