Mia’s Sullivan’s Island Senior Session Mia | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

When I tell you that this senior session is straight out of a Barbie Dream House…I’m not kidding! Mia’s entire senior session on Sullivan’s Island was a STUNNER from start to finish. Mia wanted her senior portraits captured at her home on Sullivan’s Island that sits right on the beach. We took a golf cart all over the island to photograph at neighbor’s beautiful homes, on a gorgeous dock at sunset, right on the beach, in the middle of the main street…and more! Her outfits were straight out of a magazine and the pink, Palm Beach-inspired vibes were SO fun to photograph!

We had to reschedule this shoot TWICE because of horrible thunderstorms…but I think it was worth it and happened RIGHT when it was supposed to! It was sunny and 80 degrees for the entire session. And, even better: we FILMED the entire thing for The Senior Scoop! If you want to watch this entire shoot from start to finish and hear my real-time thoughts on camera settings, lighting, locations and more…CLICK HERE to learn more + join the membership!

Mia: Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your senior portraits! I am so excited for you and what’s to come next year, and hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

Sharpay Evans or Barbie Dream House!?

Those eyes!!! Love this one!

Another favorite!

I have absolutely no reason to buy these pink pool chairs…but I feel like I NEED them.

This two-piece set was my favorite look!!!

Maybe my favorite shot from the whole shoot!
