Kayden’s Winter Senior Portraits in Downtown Savannah Kayden | Savannah, GA

Senior Sessions

I have been SO excited to share Kayden’s beautiful senior session in downtown Savannah! Believe it or not, this session was taken in the MIDDLE of the afternoon…meaning the sun was almost directly overhead. If you are a photographer, you know this is typically NOT ideal lighting. But, we went for it anyways (and the mid-afternoon sun helped us to keep warm on a very cold day!) I am absolutely OBSESSED with the results…and this shoot is proof that amazing images can be taken at ANY time of day!

Kayden is an absolutely beautiful senior that lives locally here in Savannah. She is also a wildly talented dancer! We had so much fun exploring downtown Savannah and I could not have loved her outfits more. She had such amazing pops of color throughout her wardrobe which complemented the winter backdrops perfectly! We even got a smidge of holiday cheer in some of my favorite images from the shoot!

This was one of the very first photos I took! I knew it was going to be a GOOD day!!!

LOVE! Brown is such a huge color right now and I thought it photographed beautifully with Kayden’s hair!

This GREEN with her EYES!!! I love photographing jewel tones and this color popped so beautifully!

We stumbled on this garland-covered staircase and it was TOO CUTE to pass up with this outfit!

A favorite!

Another jewel tone!!! This last, quick set of images ended up being some of my favorites from the whole shoot!
