Six Oaks Extended Family Session


Say hello to my second favorite place to photograph in Hilton Head Island.

Iconic Southern Oaks

The second most requested place for a session is somewhere with spanish moss and those big pretty, southern oaks. Most people think they want to shoot at the Wormsloe Historic Site, but what they don’t realize is the hassle that’s involved with shooting there. It’s a pretty busy road and you never know how many people will be there and it isn’t easy to share the space. 

Perks of Six Oaks

It’s private and secluded. As long as you time it right, you don’t have to worry about anyone interrupting the session. It won’t be overcrowded, and there is plenty of space to let the kids run around. Something else I love about shooting at Six Oaks is that it’s the perfect place for extended families. There’s lots of space for us to spread out, but there’s really only one background so we don’t have to worry about balancing a lot of groupings amongst the different backdrops like I do at the beach (splitting time between dunes and the water).

On the off chance there is another group having their picture taken, it’s easy to share the space to make sure everyone still gets that centered, oak path look! Some more good news? There’s never a bad time to shoot here! I’ve photographed families at all times of the day while some times are more flattering than others, I can make anything look fabulous here!

Don’t let the part about it being a cemetary turn you off. You can’t tell in the pictures, and we’re tucked away from disturbing anyone, living or otherwise! Enjoy some of the highlights from the Romano’s Extended Family Session in Winter 2022!
