Pastel Floral Senior Styled Shoot on the Battery Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

I am so excited to be sharing this styled shoot with you!!! To come back from maternity leave, I knew I wanted to do something BIG…so I put together a senior styled shoot in Charleston with The Pink Figgy! It’s the first time in YEARS that I put a shoot together just for ME. I wanted something to look forward to and a way to reignite my creativity after 3 months of maternity leave (and almost 6 months of not shooting!) I worked with some of my FAVORITE vendors in Charleston (oh hey, Firefly and Figgy!), my sister and all her adorable friends, and my amazing filming team to bring it all to life! The results are some of my FAVORITE senior images that I have EVER taken! I can’t wait for you to scroll through these!

I have to say the biggest thank you to Monique at Firefly Wed for putting together the most STUNNING floral installation. I still can’t believe this was real life…it was like the Pink Figgy was growing straight out of a garden! Meredith, the owner of The Pink Figgy, for always being such a joy to work with. Plus, my sister and all of her beautiful friends for modeling for me! This was truly SO much fun! We were pretty much stopping traffic on the Battery for 3 hours…OOPS!

THIS LIGHT. These photos. I can’t even.

Another favorite!

I almost didn’t get this shot because I felt ridiculous asking them all to sit on the street…but it’s my favorite set from the whole shoot!

And we have to have a moment for the dream team!!! Monique and Meredith!
