the rural southern senior girl

why should you choose me as your senior photographer?


I specialize in high school and college senior portraits... which means, I am here to make sure that you have the best time and photos is literally is how I make my living in life. So let's do this thing!

Do you want a senior experience like no other? Do you want to celebrate how hard you have worked these past four years?!? Do you want to always look back on these photos and remember exactly how gorgeous and amazing you felt? 

When booking with Rural Southern, you will receive a personalized senior session, just for you! We will have a fun, stress-free experience from booking your session all the way to your photo gallery delivery!! 

I make others feel loved today, so they can conquer the world tomorrow.

my motto:

tips for your senior session:

1. Have fun! 

During your session all you need to be thinking about is how happy you are to be graduating soon! Shake off the nerves and enjoy yourself!

2. Show me your silly side!

Don’t be afraid to show off your favorite silly face! If you can rock the serious look, let’s do it! I am up for about anything that you are up for!

3. Bring your best attitude.

Attitude is everything during your session. More than likely something will not go as planned, so make sure to have an open mind. We will still create beautiful images for you!

Come along with me to a full 1.5 hour senior session in Downtown Knoxville with multiple locations and outfit changes. This is exactly the type of session that you could have if you book with Rural Southern. If we learned anything from 2020, it's that life is too let's capture these memories together.

are you still thinking about it?

do your packages come with digital images?

Yes! I want to make this the easiest stress-free experience for you and your parents! Every package that I offer comes with digital images that you can share on social media or get printed!

how many outfits can i have during my session?

I recommend doing 3-4 outfits, to ensure that you get enough photos in each outfit! I want you to be able to express your personality! We will shoot for about 1.5 hours so we will make all your outfits fit in the time frame!

how do i become a rural southern belle?

Rural Southern Belles are rising seniors who want to be a part of a fun experience during their senior year. My VIP email list opens in December of your junior year and once you are on the list, you will have access to applications. So make sure to apply for my VIP LIST HERE.

Yes!! I absolutely love getting to travel! Whether you want to go to the beach or the mountains or the city, I am up for anything! Contact me for custom pricing for a destination senior session!

Do not worry one bit about this! I will be there every step of the way if you do not know what to wear! I will send you a session guide as well as a style guide! This is your session, so make sure to pick clothes that express your personality and interests!

what if it rains??

No big deal! It happens. We can either reschedule your session or shoot through the rain! Luckily, we live in East Tennessee, so the weather forecast is rarely 100% accurate. Leading up to your session I am always checking the weather so we can have the best reading. If we do end up rescheduling due to weather, I have back-up dates available!

how much are your senior experiences?

My senior girl experiences start at 850 and go up from there. I offer three different packages with professional hair and makeup as well as products!

Yes! I do offer a special package for my senior guys! Message me to get more information on this!

I offer senior sessions on Saturdays and Mondays! Any session can be booked for one of these days. I start session about 2 hours before the sun goes down for optimal lighting! On occasion, morning sessions are available if needed!

how far in advance should I book my session?

I book my sessions about 3-4 months in advance, so always make sure to reach out about at least the season before you want to do your session! Fall and Spring dates always get booked up quickly!

do you only shoot seniors? or do you shoot families as well?

I specialize in seniors, but I do enjoy shooting families and business owners as well! Reach out to me about my pricing for these!
