Hi friends and welcome to my blog!
I’m Stephanie, a senior and family portrait photographer based in Macon, Georgia. Here on the blog, you'll find recent sessions, tips and tricks, and personal stories. Feel free to take a look around. Thanks for stopping by!
Deciding on a location for your senior pictures can be challenging, so let me help you narrow down your options! The biggest take away from this post is that YOU are the focus of your senior photos, and that the background really doesn’t matter all that much. I have taken pictures all over Macon, and some locations you might not think could be magical, but when the lighting is right, and you feel your most confident self, we can truly make magic happen. You might see some photos on here that are couples or families, but the main focus of this post is to highlight some of my favorite locations.
Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite spots to work in!
Amerson River Park offers a lot of variety with greenery and the Overlook near the water. There are sidewalks that reflect light back to your face beautifully, easy parking, and a restroom by the playground.
Tattnall Square Park (and Mercer University right across the street) is a great place for a session! The fountain is an iconic location, and with lots of shade, we’re sure to find a great spot for photos.
Washington Park offers a fun staircase with smaller staircases to the side. Both of these sessions were taken at different times, so you can see how the park looks in the morning and in the evening.
Coleman Hill offers greenery + a building! I like to utilize the Woodruff House along with the front year for a variety in your photos.
Wesleyan College is a beautiful location, especially near the pond.
Macon City Auditorium
Macon City Auditorium and its surrounding areas provide a gorgeous backdrop to make you pop!
Near Macon Terminal Station/Tubman Museum
This area is funky and industrial. There is now a mural around the arches for fun pops of color!
Spanish Moss and Weeping Willow area
This is a special residential area that I absolutely love. Note: these trees don’t always look like this, so I would want to drive by before promising a session there!
I can always find gorgeous light on your campus and make your personality shine!
In order of appearance: Stratford Academy, Jones County High School, Mount de Sales, and Mercer University
I love to photograph clients at their home, especially if the lighting is gorgeous!
