As a local living in one of the top tourist destinations in the world you forget all of the obvious places to visit and play.  Instead of letting all of the tourists enjoy the fun activities, we should take advantage of what’s in our own backyard.  The scene for the Dandy Boutique summer look book was at the beautiful pink Palmer Home on the battery.  The historical house that was built in 1849 was the perfect setting for our “staycation” shoot.  A step outside and you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Charleston Harbor as you enjoy a bike ride or stroll through White Point Garden. This summer get out there and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!
