Clemson Grad: Glowy Downtown Charleston Senior Session Sarah Beale | Hope Taylor Seniors

Senior Sessions

My first senior session in almost THREE MONTHS…AH!!! So crazy and felt so good to be back. Sarah was one of the winners of my Instagram senior giveaway during quarantine because I know this season has been SO hard for so many class of 2020 grads. She just recently graduated from Clemson and we had the BEST time walking around downtown together for this shoot! She was such a patient angel with me because I was on my way to my session, 30 minutes from home when I realized I left my ENTIRE CAMERA BAG on my kitchen counter. I had to turn around and get it and get all the way back downtown. I was almost 20 minutes late and she was so understanding and forgiving. I know I’m not the only one who’s ever left my bag!!! #photographerprobs

It was a toasty 90 degree day with HIGH humidity…but Sarah absolutely ROCKED it! I kept commenting I didn’t understand how her hair still looked so good! Hahaha!! But we had the best glowy light and GORGEOUS flowers in bloom…I have so many favorites! Enjoy scrolling through!!

This hot pink dress against all of the beautiful colors of Rainbow Row totally melted my heart! LOVED this one!

Another fave!

This set of close-ups are some of my faves from the whole shoot! And the Jasmine smelt AMAZING!


We took these to represent Sarah’s new job at HART!!! She gets to move to SC! YAY!!!
