I’m a commercial photographer and my name is Libby. I think photography helps us knit the moments of our lives together more clearly. Memories that were otherwise fuzzy can be jarred just from a single photograph. Go through a pile of old photographs and watch the memories flood your mind like water filling up a pot. Photography also connects you with the past in a way nothing else really can.
I deeply love what photography does for us by connecting and transforming single moments. I believe the camera is one of the most powerful tools we have access to. I love that you can elevate any moment through a simple photograph. Also, I am a people person. I love getting to know people and tell their amazing stories. I have been telling these stories most of my life.
Officially 10 years (meaning I got paid to take a photograph 10 years ago). Unofficially, my whole life (give or take).
All over the world. I have shot in England, Scotland, Mexico, Indonesia, and all over the US – from California to Maine! But I am based in Charleston, SC. I shoot both commercially and editorially. You can see some of my editorial work in The Boston Globe, Charleston Magazine, Garden & Gun, Charleston City Paper, and skirt!. I have also worked with clients like Charleston Wine + Food Festival, MUSC, St. Francis Hospital Systems, Charleston Parks Conservancy, SAVI Cucina, The Cooper School, Ashley Hall, Porter-Gaud, South Carolina JEDA, FAB conference, 82 Queen, Melvin’s Barbeque, Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer, The Park Café… and, of course, so many more. I have also been published in a few books – CHARLESTON SALT & IRON by Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer, and Starting and Saving Seeds by Julie Thompson-Adolf, and Here, There and Everywhere with Parker Bear by the Charleston Parks Conservancy’s Park Angels.
