Hi, beautiful!

I am so excited to be sharing this styled shoot with you!!! To come back from maternity leave, I knew I wanted to do something BIG…so I put together a senior styled shoot in Charleston with The Pink Figgy! It’s the first time in YEARS that I put a shoot together just for ME. I […]

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 […]

My LAST senior session of the year!!! WHAT!? 2023…how did this happen?! I truly can’t believe that we’re already in November! But, Ciana’s Charleston senior session was the PERFECT way to end out the year. I called my mom on the way home from this shoot and said “it was the ideal senior session in […]

I can’t quite believe it, but this is my second to last senior session of 2023! Where did time go!? Cassie’s senior portraits took place in Charleston, SC during a beautiful fall sunrise. Those early mornings used to not be my favorite time to shoot…but they are now by FAR what I prefer! Cooler temps, […]

When it rains, it pours…and that was EXACTLY what happened at Bella’s Charleston senior session! I am actually not sure if I have EVER had a shoot with this much rain. Talk about a plot twist!! The forecast for Bella’s senior session was absolutely beautiful the morning of her shoot: 80 degrees and sunny. But, […]
