Ella’s Downtown Savannah Senior Session Ella | Savannah, GA

Senior Sessions

Guys…this is my new favorite shoot in Savannah so far!! I am SO excited to be sharing it with you! Ella found me on Instagram while searching for a photographer for her senior portraits and stumbled upon my account. We’ve been chatting back and forth for a few weeks now planning all of the details and I was looking SO forward to this shoot! I spent about an hour beforehand driving around downtown Savannah to find some new hidden gem locations that I hadn’t shot before. We met at Forsyth Park (an area of the park I had never photographed) before exploring the Washington Square area together.

When Ella pulled up wearing this baby blue dress…I instantly knew this was going to be a GOOD day! The glowy light was coming through the Spanish moss, the park was somehow almost completely empty and there was a light breeze making the heat manageable. Ella’s beautiful mom joined us for the session and jumped in for some absolutely gorgeous mother-daughter photos, and these two just could not have been any sweeter! Ella has the most gorgeous Southern style and I had so much fun photographing her!

Ella: thank you for choosing me to be your senior portrait photographer! You are such a light and made my job so, so easy. I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

If you join The Senior Scoop you’ll get to see where this pink tree was. It was on the side of a basketball court, off of a dingy dirt sidewalk…but I knew it would be beautiful if we framed it just right!!

Love love love!

Another tree right on the edge of a packed parking lot…but the LIGHT was too good to pass up!

I discovered a mini Rainbow Row in Savannah! OBSESSED!
