Brianna Ashton | Senior Session on the Water

Senior Sessions


I first met Brianna when she tagged along at one of her close friend’s senior session last fall, and when she told me she was booking her senior portraits with me, I just couldn’t wait! We have been planning these portraits since last fall but there was ALWAYS a schedule or weather conflict and we just couldn’t get these photos done! So, we moved them to spring and I am SO glad that we did!!

Brianna arrived at her senior session in this GORGEOUS floral, sheer cardigan and I was SOOOO excited!! I LOVE THESE CARDIGANS! I see them all over the place and I have yet to purchase one for myself, but I could just picture how amazing it was going to look on the water!!

We kick-started her session in downtown Fredericksburg for that “city” vibe, and then headed down to a gorgeous spot on the water and it was the PERFECT day for that! It was sooo nice out and the water felt great! Brianna was such a good sport about getting wet and the pictures turned out perfectly!

Check out some of my favorites from her session below and leave this gorgeous girl some love!
