Best of 2023 Seniors Hope Taylor Photography

Senior Sessions

These posts are so special to me every single year. It’s one of my favorite ways to reflect on the last 365 days, and to curate the work that I’m the most PROUD of after an entire year of shooting. Typically, I do one of these posts for my weddings, one for engagement sessions and one for seniors. BUT, as you may have subtly noticed over the last few months…I am no longer photographing weddings (AH!) Instead, I am focusing primarily on senior portraits – which have always been my specialty and first love as a photographer! So, as we move into 2024…I am focusing on my BEST of SENIOR work from the entire year of 2023! Curating these images is a process that takes me hours and hours…but it is always so fulfilling for me to get to look back at these posts and remember some of my favorite work that I created in each year of my business!

Some of these images are my favorite because they are technically beautiful. Some are in this post because they were really hard to shoot in the moment (HELLOOOOO crazy lighting, weird locations and insane weather)…or maybe I just feel like I truly captured my senior client in a way that feels true to THEM. This post includes all of my seniors I photographed in 2023 (!!!) including some epic locations like California flower fields, Laguna Beach, iconic areas of downtown Savanah and Charleston, my old stomping grounds in Fredericksburg, VA and more! Enjoy a scroll through reminiscing on 2023 with me!!

Photographers: Almost ALL of these senior sessions were FILMED for my educational membership called THE SENIOR SCOOP! If you want to see the process of creating these images, my camera settings, the RAW images before + after edits, my thought processes behind posing, lighting, location, etc. AND the editing process…you can jump in and join the membership for only $27 and kick off the new year with a head start on your senior work!

If you are a class of 2024 or 2025 senior that is interested in working together for your senior portraits next year, I’d absolutely LOVE to chat with you! CLICK HERE to learn more about working with me and fill out the contact form for more details! I won’t be accepting spring sessions in 2024 while I am on maternity leave, but have openings for summer sessions beginning June 1st!

One of my favorite memories from 2023! FINALLY fulfilling my dreams of photographing in a MASSIVE floral field!

Loved this outfit!

Working with Miss Savannah was another 2023 highlight!

My first senior session taken in POURING rain…and we still got so many gorgeous photos!

Loving how many appearances we have from The Pink Figgy this year!
