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 […]

If you follow me on Instagram…then you know why this shoot was so special to me! This is my little sister, Abby, who had brain surgery back in May. She is one of the strongest and bravest women I know…and I’m so dang proud to be her big sister. After her incision healed enough, she […]

Cicily’s senior portait session was the LAST shoot I did in Charleston before moving to Savannah! I squeezed it in during my last week and am SO glad that I did! The forecast on the day of her shoot kept changing…but we made the decision to shoot despite the storms in the forecast. We shot […]

Anna-Kelley’s senior portrait session was a dream from start to finish…you can barely even tell that it was POURING rain for the majority of it!! When the forecast started to say rain, we tried to schedule her session…but Anna-Kelley was about to leave for college and I didn’t have any availability. So, we decided to […]

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!
