Gracie’s Downtown Charleston Senior Portraits Gracie | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

I have a handful of senior clients each year who leave me feeling SO on top of the world after their shoot…and Gracie and her sweet mom were two of those clients. Gracie traveled into Charleston for her senior session all the way from Georgia. And, to make it even MORE of a doozy travel day…they got a FLAT TIRE on their way in for the shoot. Talk about worst case scenario!!! Somehow, they were able to get their car to a shop, the tire replaced, back on the road and completely ready for her senior session without missing a beat or being even a minute late. I was so impressed!!!

Gracie and her mom are both so kind and genuine. They were SO excited about Gracie’s senior portraits, and we had the best time laughing our way through Rainbow Row together! Her style and wardrobe choices perfectly complemented the pastel colors of the iconic homes, and we finished up at Hampton Park to sprinkle in some Spanish Moss and sunset light at the end of her shoot. It was absolutely perfect – and she made my job so easy!! And can we talk about how those curls held up in the July Charleston humidity!? I was amazed!!

Gracie: Than you so much for trusting me to capture your senior portraits, and for traveling so far! I absolutely adored our time together and hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!

This iconic shot on Rainbow Row is a must at every senior shoot!

LOVED this new spot! And that soft, glowy light!

I think this set is my favorite! I LOVED the shade of this orange dress!

For sure a fave!

Another favorite!
