Mary Caroline’s Savannah Senior Session in Washington Square Mary Caroline | Savannah, GA

Senior Sessions

You may recognize Mary Caroline…because this isn’t the first time I’ve photographed her!!! I captured MC’s first set of senior portraits in Charleston during THIS shoot…and this time she came all the way to Savannah for ANOTHER shoot!! AH! And, to make it even better…we worked with the adorable Lemon Fig & Jolly yellow car in downtown Savannah (my very first time getting to photograph one of their cars!!!). It could not have been more dreamy!!!

Working with repeat senior clients is always such a treat. I just ADORE getting to capture these girls and such a joyful season of their lives…it always makes me so sad to hug goodbye after just a few hours together. When I get the chance to photograph them AGAIN…it’s almost always even MORE fun the second time around 🙂 That was completely true for MC!!! She traveled so far to be a part of this session and I am SO honored that she did. She is such a bubbly bundle of joy and I hope you love scrolling through my favorite images as much as I do!

All of these colors make me SO happy!!! Downtown Savannah has it’s own “mini” Rainbow Row that features beautiful, pastel-colored homes in one of the historic squares of downtown. It was the perfect backdrop with the yellow car!

A favorite!

MC’s aunt traveled with her to make this shoot happen and I’m SO glad we snapped a couple adorable photos of them together!

MC ROCKS this “over-the-shoulder” pose!!!

Somehow there were gorgeous flowers in bloom in the dead of winter!

Love this one!
