Gwen Griffin | DC Senior Session

Senior Sessions


I can’t even begin to describe how much fun this session was! I’ve known Gwen since my freshman year and I was SO excited when she texted me about doing her senior photos in DC! I had never been to see the cherry blossoms before (and I’ve lived here for 8 years…crazy right?!) and it was SOOOO amazing!
We got up at 4am and headed for DC at 5 (making a pit stop at Starbucks on the way, of course) and starting shooting by 6:45! I was pretty nervous about the number of people that I expected to be there, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought! Gwen is STUNNING and these photos are some of my favorites in a while! Not only is she an amazing student, but she plays the viola and is awesome at lacrosse! I can’t wait to graduate with her in a little more than 3 weeks! AHH!

Enjoy some of the gorgeous images from her session below and leave her some love!

Her super sweet dad works in DC and took some time off to come meet us for a few shots…SO sweet!
