Myrtle Beach, Family Photo Session

Myrtle Beach, Family Photo Session

We are in love with this crisp and clean family shoot. The styling of denim and white with pops of color is the perfect match to this shoot’s Myrtle Beach background. Learn more about this southern family and the values that bring out the bright smiles in these gorgeous pictures. Get all the inspiration you need in time for your spring family photo session.

Names of Family Members

Stephanie (mom), Shellon (dad), Parker (son – 9 almost 10), Garrett (son – 5)

Where the mom from?

I’m from a small, small town – Johnsonville, South Carolina

Pasha Belman Photography | wwwpashabelmancom | Myrtle Beach | Pawleys Island | Charleston

Where is your current location?

We live in Columbia, South Carolina

What is your favorite thing about being a mom?

My favorite part about being a mom is having conversations with the boys. They always have something funny and interesting to say. I also love being involved in the things they are involved in.

What do you love about raising your children in the South?

Raising the boys here is the best of all worlds. We have access to the city, but we live in the slower paced outskirts. We’re close enough to the ocean that we could take a day or weekend trip.

Which do they only eat if you make?

The boys love macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, chicken and rice (pirleau), and fresh butter beans. They love to eat!

Why did you choose this location to do the family photo shoot?

We chose the location for our family shoot for two reasons: 1) the boys love the beach 2) our fabulous photographer was located there.

What are your favorite lessons to teach your children?

To use good manners. To speak clearly. To be gentlemen.

Pasha Belman Photography | wwwpashabelmancom | Myrtle Beach | Pawleys Island | Charleston

Do you have any favorite restaurants you like to take them?

Redbone Alley – it’s a little over an hour from where we live, but the boys love it.

What are some of your favorite books you read to them?

One of our favorites that I’ve read to both boys since before they were born is “Oh, the Place You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss.

Who styled the children for this shoot?

I did.

Pasha Belman Photography | wwwpashabelmancom | Myrtle Beach | Pawleys Island | Charleston

What southern values do you hope they inherit as they grow up?

It is my hope that my boys continue being gentlemen, take pride in who they are and where they come from and develop the resilience and resolve to know they can do and be anything they set their minds to.

What advice did you get from your mother on parenting?

To always be there for the boys.

Where did you get some of the clothing items?

Chen Burkett New York

Shellon
