Peyton’s Grad Portraits at College of Charleston Peyton | Charleston, SC

Senior Sessions

What a BEAUTIFUL way to kick off a week of senior sessions on the blog! Peyton is a grad finishing her last year at College of Charleston – and we had the BEST time photographing her portraits on campus! We had the most gorgeous glowing light, a super helpful breeze (despite the heat!) and the dripping Spanish moss all over campus made for a photographer’s dream come true! Peyton was a cheerleader at College of Charleston for all 4 years, and you can immediately tell from her spirit – she is such a joy to be around! We incorporated her amazing cheer career into her portraits, as well as the signature C of C red roses!

Peyton – thank you so much for being a part of this shoot and for trusting me to capture your senior year! I am SO proud of your accomplishments and so honored to have captured this season for you!
