GAHHH. It’s going to be such a beautiful week on the blog! I’ve had an insane two weeks of traveling with a whole week in DC and an entire week in Savannah immediately following. I had back-to-back meetings and commitments, but I only had one shoot scheduled during that period (Brandon + Emilee’s engagement) and […]

My FIRST engagement session of 2021…and it was special for more than one reason!!! I have known Emilee since I was all the way back in middle school. We were close friends for many, many years and both went to the same high school as Brandon! Emilee and Brandon knew of each other…but were never really close […]

Working with other photographers is ALWAYS an honor…and it’s even MORE of an honor when it’s one of your past students!!! Dakota has become a sweet friend of mine over the years after attending a live filming for one of my courses. She reached out to me a couple weeks ago that she would be […]

I have been looking forward to this shoot for MONTHS!!! Griffin reached out to me back in July saying that he would be traveling with his girlfriend to Charleston and wanted to plan to propose to her. He found me on Instagram and thought that his girlfriend Hannah would love my style (SO sweet)!!! We […]

I had two GORGEOUS shoots last week…which makes for a full week on the blog!!! We have spent MONTHS trying to plan Amelia and Trevor’s engagement session. Travel bans, COVID restrictions and complications kept pushing it farther and farther back. Amelia was flying in from CALIFORNIA for the shoot…and her travel ban was finally lifted […]

This is a funny week on the blog because I shot SO much last week that things are being shared out of order!! I always blog weddings on Wednesdays, so I actually shared Kat and Carter’s wedding on the blog YESTERDAY (see it HERE!). But, we shot their engagement session in the same weekend – […]

Ya’ll, I’ve been DYING to get this engagement session up on the blog!!! The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of traveling to VA, shooting a wedding in Maryland, coming home to SC, going to NC for an engagement session, back to SC for my sister’s birthday then back to VA for another wedding.

Build Your Senior Photography Business

I began my business during my junior year of high school, and fell in love with photography while capturing all of my peers and their senior portraits. I built a six-figure photography business on my passion for senior clients - and now I help hundreds of photographers across the globe do the same! 

Free downloads, blog posts, YouTube videos, online courses and memberships... I have it a resource for you!
