hey!

Hey there, I'm Kip! or as your grandparents will call me, Chip, or Skip. It's all good.

I photograph people who are friggin’ insanely in love and beautiful for a living, pretty cool right? I am so lucky to capture them and make so many new friends during the process!

When I'm not busy doing cool business stuff in my office, or homeschooling our awesome 13 year old, you can find me hiking, camping, biking, or at the barn watching our daughter ride her horse.

Myrtle Beach Photographer

I'm Kip, founder of Middle Child Photography!

Since 2007 I have shot over 300 weddings, mostly in the Myrtle Beach, Grand Strand area. I have also traveled to the coast of New Jersey, Newport, Rhode Island, and The Bahamas. Each summer when all the families come to the area for vacation, you will find me taking their family portraits right before sunset. I love shooting high school seniors, and probably shoot about 20 unique sessions each season. 

LET'S BE SERIOUS...

FOR LIKE A SECOND

WANT MORE?

For the last 6 years, I have been the organizer of a group of local photographers that provides free sessions to families with children fighting cancer. I personally shoot about 6 free sessions per summer and coordinate with over 40 families and photographers to make it happen. These families come to the beach from all over the state and leave with memories that will last a lifetime. I also have taken on interns, allowed kids from local schools to job shadow and I teach classes to local photographers. I believe strongly in "Community or Competition."

I VALUE ...

GIVING BACK

BUT REALLY, WHO AM i?

- we have too many pets... two dogs, a turtle, a hairless cat, one rabbit, and a horse.
- we once left two brand new kayaks on the side of the highway when the wind was too strong and they blew off the van.
- If you watched it on Netflix, I probably did too.
- I was married overlooking Niagara falls on the Canada side in 2004, but been together since 1997.
- I can ride a unicycle, and have a Schwinn.
- I spent 16 years working with kids and adult with disabilities.
- I hate coffee. I know, not cool.
- I will sneak seconds if your wedding has a mashed potato bar.
- we just bought a camper and can hardly wait to explore the country in it.
