Winter Senior Portraits on The Battery Taylor | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

My final senior session of 2021 was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! It always blows my mind how much Charleston looks and feels like the summer…even in early December. It was a BEAUTIFUL day to photograph Taylor along the Battery and some of my favorite blocks near Rainbow Row. I also photographed her sister’s senior session exactly one year beforehand…SUCH a fun day!! Taylor has the most amazing style and could not be more gorgeous. She wanted less of a “girly” style for her photos and wanted them to truly feel like HER. And I think we achieved that!!

Taylor, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your beautiful portraits! It was such an honor to work with you and I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

Love this one!

Another favorite!!

It took FOREVER to get this shot with the gate because people kept walking in and out…but I think our patience was worth it!

This whole set of images may be my favorite!! SO glowy!!

Absolutely LOVE this soft smile!!!

Another one! SO many favorites!
