Katy’s Spring Senior Portraits in Downtown Charleston Katy | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

Spring senior sessions are my absolute favorite…and they are even better when they are perfectly timed with the blooms in downtown Charleston! Katy and her sweet family flew in from TEXAS for her senior portraits. We scheduled this shoot MONTHS ago…but we ended up scheduling it PERFECTLY. Somehow, all at once, the azaleas AND the wisteria were in peak bloom for this shoot. It was an absolute dream!!! When you combine that with Katy’s stunning outfits and the iconic Pink Figgy… you get a recipe for a new favorite senior session!!

Katy was such a rockstar during this shoot because it was CHILLY. There were some points in the shoot where we were in the shade with the ocean breeze and she was covered in goosebumps. And she STILL rocked it!! Even in a tiny sundress and heels! We had the best time exploring the iconic Rainbow Row, Battery and Hampton Park locations to get tons of variety in her 2 hour shoot. I have so many favorites!

Katy: Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your senior year! It is such an incredible honor that you traveled so far for this shoot. I had the best time with you and your amazing family! Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites and have the BEST time at college next year!!

Photographers: If you’d like to watch me photograph this entire session including camera settings, posing, lighting, location tips and so much more…


This shoot goes live in the membership in May!!!

This orange dress was absolutely stunning, and so was Katy’s hair and makeup by Silhouette on Site!

LOVE!!! This dress + The Pink Figgy + this iconic pink mansion = a dream.

A favorite!!!

We were literally driving to a different location and saw these azaleas on the side of the road…and I knew we had to hop out and shoot here! I’m SO glad we did!!!


Absolutely LOVE when my seniors bring some of their favorite people to their shoot. Love this shot of Katy, her mom and sister!

This romper was PERFECT with the famous wisteria!!!

The pink + blue combo will always be a favorite of mine!
