Charleston Family Photographer | Silence. A flashing cursor. A million different ideas flowing through our brains, but yet have no idea how to put them into words. That’s us at this very moment. Throughout our lives, we’ve had many, many friends. A handful of people we would consider best friends, then there is Natalie Franke. She’s that person that walks into our lives, not only personal, but in business, and rocks us to the core. She’s a creative genius that makes us feel as if we can concur the world and her words resonate over and over and over in our hearts. We can do this thing called life… as strong women, as moms, as creatives, as entrepreneur, and small business owners.
Nearly five years ago, the Rising Tide Society emerged, with Natalie as it’s founder. Mobilizing over 75,000 creatives, Natalie has changed peoples lives one at a time. In January Natalie has this wild idea road-trip, start from her home in Annapolis, Maryland, and make this sweeping U shape down the eastern seaboard, across the lower united states, then up California ending up in San Francisco, before flying back home. Every state she passed through, hosting a gathering of all the nearby TuesdayTogether groups, some being hundreds of people strong.
You may remember Natalie as one of the bridesmaids in Rachel and Paul’s wedding a few years ago. Luckily home for Natalie was in San Francisco at the time, allowing her to come down for Rachel’s bridal shower weekend as well. It was all an absolute dream!
While Natalie, husband Huey, and their newest addition baby Huey, traveled through Charleston, we had the incredible honor to spend the morning together after a long evening of merriment with our local Rising Tide groups. The rain stayed away just enough, for us to walk the downtown Charleston streets with this adorable family, capturing moments between them that will never ever be forgotten.
Natalie, we love you to pieces! Thank you for your continued friendship, strong will to make this world a better place, and the encouragement to reach for the dreams that normally would seem impossible to grasp, and thank you for allowing us to become your Charleston family photographer. We only hope one day you can call Charleston home, but for now we’re happy to be sharing the east coast. Love you!
