This time of year is typically a slow season for photographers but every once in a while I have a senior session in the middle of winter. This is one of those!!

Hayley and Zach’s engagement session on Broad Street in downtown Charleston was so much fun from start to finish! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me share that I am slowly phasing out of photographing weddings in 2024. It is so bittersweet! But, I have taken on a handful of amazing […]

In this video I’m going to be sharing my first impression and real time thoughts on the brand new Imagen AI software for photographers. To be honest, I typically edit a senior session in about 2 hours so I haven’t felt the need to add any AI into my workflow… until now! I’m typically an […]

What an absolutely amazing WHIRLWIND of a week last week! I started the week in Dallas, Texas to speak at the Creative Educator Conference, then ended the week in Virginia for our Fredericksburg baby shower!

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 […]

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 […]

Kicking off the year of 2024 with a BEAUTIFUL Savannah, GA senior session at Forsyth Park! Himalay was such a trooper for this sunrise shoot, because it was FREEZING cold. We had a few back-to-back weeks with days in the 70’s leading up to this session…then randomly woke up to a morning BELOW 30! We […]
