Midday Senior Session in Hampton Park Mylie | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

I broke one of my BIGGEST photography rules…and I shot a senior session in the MIDDLE of the day! We are talking 2pm, mid-day sunshine on a HOT Charleston afternoon. Why the heck did I do that!? Well, 1. Because Mylie is ADORABLE and wanted to squeeze in her senior session when I was already in Charleston this date and 2. We wanted to film it for you inside The Senior Scoop!!! Mylie and I had SO much fun expoloring Hampton Park together for her portraits. We even narrowly escaped a nasty severe storm in the process! Haha!!

Mylie graduated just a few days before this session so it was the PERFECT way to celebrate! And it was such a challenge for me to create beautiful, glowy images despite the harsh mid-day light…and I think they turned out beautifully!!

Mylie: Thank you for trusting me to capture such an exciting season of your life (and for braving the humidity with me!!) I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

Photographers: Want to see this FULL, uncut senior session and hear my real-time thought processes on lighting, posing, camera settings and more? How about watching me edit this entire gallery in real-time?

LOVED this spot and the pop of pink in her shirt!!

This is when we thought a nasty storm was going to blow in…but thankfully is passed with just a little drizzle! And these hydrangeas were SO fun to photograph!

Another favorite!!

Loved this red dress on her!! And this shot!
