Senior Sessions

My FIRST time on Fripp Island was for Sofia’s senior session last week and I am already hooked! I’ve heard amazing things about the island off the coast of Beaufort, south Carolina…but I never had a reason to visit. It is a private island, about halfway between Charleston and Savannah…and goodness it is dreamy! The entire island has such a slow-paced, peaceful feeling. Everyone gets around on their golf carts, and everywhere you turn has a new, stunning ocean view. What a PERFECT place for a senior session! Sofia grew up visiting her grandparents on the island every summer for multiple weeks at a time. It is such a special place to her and her family! We spent the evening hopping around the island to capture multiple stunning locations, and somehow we had a breezy day that didn’t feel like a typical HOT low-country summer evening. It could not have been more perfect!

Sofia, thank you so much for inviting me to Fripp to capture your senior portraits! You are such a sweetheart and a JOY to photograph, I had so much fun exploring with you and your sweet momma! Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!
