Cassie Sunrise Senior Portraits on Rainbow Row Cassie | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

I can’t quite believe it, but this is my second to last senior session of 2023! Where did time go!? Cassie’s senior portraits took place in Charleston, SC during a beautiful fall sunrise. Those early mornings used to not be my favorite time to shoot…but they are now by FAR what I prefer! Cooler temps, less crowds, gorgeous light…it really can’t get better than that. And it was exactly the type of day we had for Cassie’s portraits!

Cassie and her sweet mom traveled from Raleigh, NC for her shoot. It is always SUCH an honor when my clients come from so far…but also adds an additional layer of pressure! Cassie wanted to capture all of the quintessential beauty of Charleston: the cobblestone streets, colorful window boxes, iconic Rainbow Row and dripping Spanish moss. And we were able to make it ALL happen! I have so many favorites from this shoot, and Cassie’s beautiful sense of style made it even better!

Cassie: Thank you so much for trusting me to capture such an exciting part of your life! It means the world to me that you came all the way to Charleston for this session, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!
