Hey Gorgeous!

Moving to Charleston and Savannah has been a really interesting transition for my business. I used to photograph only seniors that lived locally to my small town.

Guys…this is my new favorite shoot in Savannah so far!! I am SO excited to be sharing it with you! Ella found me on Instagram while searching for a photographer for her senior portraits and stumbled upon my account.

I broke one of my BIGGEST photography rules…and I shot a senior session in the MIDDLE of the day! We are talking 2pm, mid-day sunshine on a HOT Charleston afternoon. Why the heck did I do that!? Well, 1. Because Mylie is ADORABLE and wanted to squeeze in her senior session when I was already […]

I almost NEVER do weekend senior sessions…so this was a treat for me!!! When Kate’s mom inquired about doing her senior portraits while they were in Charleston for vacation, I realized I was going to be in town the same dates…and I had just enough time to squeeze in her shoot! We had the most […]

Emma’s senior session was so much FUN!!! We met up in downtown on a beautiful May evening for her Charleston senior portraits. My favorite way to kick off every senior session is to look through outfits and props that my clients brought along with them to map out exactly where we will photograph each piece. […]

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!
