Summer Senior Portrait Session at The Battery Lainey | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

It’s a busy week on the blog this week…because it’s been a busy week of shooting!! Last week, before getting on the road to Virginia, I had the honor of photographing Lainey’s high school senior portraits! Her entire family was in town visiting Charleston from Washington, and they knew they wanted portraits while in town. They found me online and we had the absolute BEST time together! Lainey’s mom and sister both tagged along for the shoot, and we spent 2 hours exploring Rainbow Row and The Battery together. Lainey had the CUTEST outfits (amazing style, girlfriend!) and we found some ADORABLE new spots to photograph that I hadn’t used before. Rainbow Row really is just a photographer’s playground! I love it!!

Lainey, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your senior portraits! You are such a light and going to do some AMAZING things – enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!! XO!

Could they be any more beautiful!?

Mom and daughters…but they easily look like they could be sisters!! So crazy!

These flower boxes were to-die-for!

I had never photographed this little spot before…but I LOVE it!!


Another favorite!!!
