Senior Pictures in Downtown Columbia

Senior Pictures in Downtown Columbia

🎓 I can’t believe I’m already shooting Hadley’s senior pictures. I became friends with Hadley’s mom, Shannon, back in my years in the Spring Hill MOMS Club when Hadley was just a little girl. I later went on to serve on the Elementary School PTO with Shannon. All of those things seem very recent, so it doesn’t seem feasible that Hadley will graduate from Summit High School this weekend and will be off to Sewanee this fall. I can’t wait to hear about her adventures there and where life will take her.

Hadley wasn’t sure where she wanted her Senior Pictures taken, so I suggested Downtown Columbia. I think Downtown Columbia is often overlooked as a photo location, in favor of Franklin. But both towns have a ton of great brickwork and architecture that I love for Senior Photos. The advantage of Columbia is that it’s often less crowded.

To Hadley & all of the Class of 2021 – congratulations to you all. May your week be filled with wonderful celebrations and memories that will last a lifetime.

I am a photographer serving families in Spring Hill, Franklin, and Columbia in Middle Tennessee. I photograph families at all stages, from newborns to seniors. See my website for more information or to book a session from my online calendar. I would love it if you would consider following me on Facebook and/or Instagram.

I can’t believe that once upon a time, I thought I would hate senior sessions. When I first started in photography, families and young children were definitely my comfort zone. But with some encouragement from friends, I gave senior sessions a try and was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed them.  It’s so fun to get to know these young people, and also to try to capture their personalities and passions in photographs.  I just love that Dylan brought his guitar to this session, and my favorite photos from it are ones where he is playing. 

I also love the ability to get creative with backgrounds and lighting. I can do that to some extent with younger kids, but they just don’t stand in one place for long.  I love the look and variety of downtown sessions, but don’t recommend them for my young clients because it’s not a safe space for them to roam and explore freely. But with seniors, it’s just perfect. Downtown Franklin is great, but I also have grown to love shooting in downtown Columbia.  It was just the perfect weather and perfect location to commemorate Dylan’s senior year.
