2021 Best of Seniors Hope Taylor Photography

Senior Sessions

These posts are so special to me every single year. It’s one of my favorite ways to reflect on the last 365 days, and to curate the work that I’m the most PROUD of after an entire year of shooting. The last two years have been weird as photographers amidst the pandemic…and it can be easy to get so caught up in the “busy” that I forget to actually be excited about the work I’m doing in the moment. It’s also so easy to forget some of the beautiful sessions or images I captured all the way back in January or February…I uncovered some favorite images that I forgot I even took this year!! These “best of” images will be shared in 3 categories: seniors, couples and weddings.

Today I’ll be sharing my favorite SENIOR images from the entire year of 2021. Some of these are my favorite because they are technically beautiful. Some are in this post because they were really hard to shoot in the moment (HELLOOO massive thunderstorm mid-session) or just because I feel like I genuinely captured my client’s joy and personality in their images. Enjoy scrolling through and get excited for two more of these posts next week!!!

Going to forever be a favorite!! Loved this whole shoot! !

Charleston Jasmine will never get old.

We took these photos to celebrate my sister able to get her hair done for the first time after brain surgery…so special to me.

Can you tell how much I love The Pink Figgy!?

It was POURING rain in this photo…but you’d never know it!
