TWO beautiful seniors on the blog in the SAME WEEK?! That’s a major win in my book!! When Kora’s mom told me that they were traveling to Charleston from Oklahoma for her senior portraits (!!!) I had a feeling it was going to be a good shoot. When they told me they were staying at […]

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 […]

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. […]

TWO back-to-back senior sessions on the blog AND my first senior session in Savannah…it’s a GOOD WEEK! Emily and her amazing family drove up from Charleston for her senior portraits last week. I was already so excited to photograph my first senior in downtown Savannah…and then I realized the AZALEAS were in bloom!!! I was […]

Where do I even start with Mary!? This senior session has quickly become one of my new favorites, and we had the absolute BEST time while creating so many beautiful images! I drove up to Charleston on Monday about an hour before this shoot to meet up with Meredith (the driver of the The Pink […]

These posts are so special to me every single year. It’s one of my favorite ways to reflect on the last 365 days, and to curate the work that I’m the most PROUD of after an entire year of shooting. The last two years have been weird as photographers amidst the pandemic…and it can be […]

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!
