Sweet little Cole! {Myrtle Beach, SC Children/Family Photographer}

Categorized as Children  •  Families  •  Photography  •  Theme Photography

It’s been raining here for the past week!

Mr. Weather man says it’s going to rain all next week too!


Cole’s Mama booked this session a couple months ago for his first birthday pictures.

We almost rescheduled the day of because it had been raining all day.

But i’m so glad we didn’t and decided to go for it!

We were able to do the shoot in between the rain

and these are some of my favorite pictures ever!

I mean seriously, how cute is he?!?

He was such a happy little guy!

Of course we had to get some of Cole & his mama.

I just love these.

I LOVEEEEE this picture!

 I secretly want to hang it in my house.

It’s so unlike me to not post any in black and white,

but I just love all these colors!

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Boy!!

Welcome to the brand new Erin Dietrich Photography website & blog! This has been a long couple of weeks, a lot of hard work and late nights {or should I say mornings} creating this! But I didn’t do it alone. I worked with two awesome and extremely talented ladies. A huge thank you to Nina from Nina Randone Graphic Design and Shannon from Snoack Studios I couldn’t have done it without you! You ladies rock!

I will now be blogging sessions right here on this blog. As well as keeping you all up to date with specials, giveaways and all that fun stuff! So go check out the website and sign up to start receiving goodies through email! I hope you love the new website and blog as much as I do! {Ok, you probably aren’t as excited about it as I am but pretend to be!}

We have some new and exciting changes coming to Erin Dietrich Photography in the new year and we hope you’ll stick around to see what they are and join in on the fun! But the one thing we are most excited about is coming this June….

That’s right, I’m pregnant with Baby #2! We couldn’t be more excited. I’ll have a new little model to photograph!

Thank you, as always from the bottom of my heart to my amazing clients for all of your continued love, support and helping me make this happen. I truly feel like I have been blessed with the best clients around and for that I am so very thankful! It’s because of all of you that I was recently able to quit my “day job” stay home with my daughter and  follow my dreams. Without your continued support, referrals, and business I couldn’t have done this. Just one year ago when we moved here to Myrtle Beach, SC I would never have imagined I would be where I am today. I had to leave all my wonderful clients in California and start completely from scratch, which terrified me! I remember thinking to myself, “I’ll never be able to build up a good clientele like that and do this full time again. YA’LL {there I said it} have truly welcomed me with open arms. Thank you for believing in me and choosing me as your photographer. I have truly loved building friendships with each and everyone one of you and love watching your beautiful families grow! I am looking forward to all the new clients I will get to meet and build relationships with in the new year as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
