Introducing Nathan, my youngest brother who graduates May 19th. I had the pleasure of taking his senior photos the weekend of his 17th birthday. Yes, you read that right… the genius pictured within this post is graduating high school at 17 years old, having also completed college classes in cyber security!
I am so incredibly proud of Nathan and all he is accomplishing. We had a great time taking his senior photos at some of his favorite places in Charleston.
Here are five tips to making your Charleston senior photos session amazing!
1. Pick a place that you love!
Downtown Charleston and the waterfront are always beautiful, but if you have a special place that you just adore… let me know! I’m totally flexible when it comes to location and want to make sure that you are comfortable wherever we are.
2. Wear something comfortable.
This is your time to shine, so take advantage of it! That doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy a new wardrobe. Just make sure that the clothing options you pick reflect your personality and all the things that make you, you!

3. Props are welcome!
Do you have a varsity jacket, new car, or maybe even a furry friend that means the world to you? Bring them along! Just shoot me a note ahead of time so that I can prepare accordingly.
4. Don’t worry about posing.
If you’re not use to being in front of a camera, posting can feel a little awkward at first. No need to worry! I’ll gently guide you through a number of different poses and facial expressions that are flattering to your unique style and will allow us to get a variety of images for your final gallery.
5. Bring your makeup bag!
Ladies, we all know that touch-ups are sometimes necessary. Bring your make-up bag along with the essentials so that we can make sure you stay fresh and feel your best.
