This engagement session is special for SO many reasons!!! One being that it kicks off my “busy” season of normalcy after so long in quarantine…and two because Ellen was one of my absolute best friends in high school!! I met Ellen when I was a 14 year old freshman. I don’t even remember what class […]

Ya’ll…it’s my first shoot back in TWO WHOLE MONTHS!!! AH!!! I can’t even believe it…and this shoot wasn’t even planned!! South Carolina has slowly started to lift stay-at-home orders and allowed small businesses to begin opening back up, which includes photographers. But, to be safe, I’ve kept almost all of my client shoots beginning in […]

Annie and Benny’s engagement session was my very first shoot of 2020, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the year! I was traveling to Richmond last weekend to celebrate my sweet friend’s engagement dinner, and the trip happened to perfectly align with Annie and Benny’s availability! So, we met […]

I did SO much shooting in the month of October…but this shoot was such a special grande finale!!! I have been photographing Chelsey and her family for YEARS now – starting with their engagement and wedding photos, then their anniversary, family and maternity photos ever since <3 Chelsey is a sweet friend of mine, an […]

My first EVER shoot in downtown Charleston…something I’ve dreamed of doing for YEARS!!! Every time I’ve visited Rainbow Row and the beautiful downtown area I dreamed of photographing someone here. I didn’t care if I lived here or not…I just wanted to capture it’s beauty! But, now I’m officially LIVING in the city I’ve always […]

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!
