Sarah Hudie | Downtown Senior Session

Senior Sessions


Ahhhh! I can’t even begin to explain how much I LOVE Sarah’s senior session! Let me tell you…this girl is SO sweet and SOOO gorgeous! We met up at my house prior to her session so that she could have her hair and makeup done by Makeup by Allyson. Then, after looking through outfits and choosing locations, we headed straight for the train station in downtown Fredericksburg! This girl LOVES to travel (She’s actually in France right now, SO JEALOUS!) and so this location was perfect for her!
Then, we headed to an old abandoned train and shot some more gorgeous images! We finished up her senior session at a gorgeous field with a huge cherry blossom tree! SOOO much fun! Sarah and I have so much in common and totally hit it off! She’s heading to Radford next fall, too, and I can’t wait to see her there!
Enjoy some of my favorites from her session below and leave her some love 🙂

The train pulled in for a split second and we got some gorgeous images with it in the background!

*Just so you guys know, these train tracks shown in some of the photos are NOT active and are simply for show, as well as the trains! Shooting on live railroad tracks is illegal and very dangerous!*

Hope you guys enjoyed Sarah’s beautiful session as much as I did! And I hope you all had a fantastic Monday 🙂
