2016 Senior Spokesmodel Team | Valentine’s Day

Senior Sessions

This past week has been a whirlwind of planning shoots, styling events, shooting beautiful things, moving with my family and preparing for wedding season…but I am so pumped for this blog post!! This year, I am so excited to have my very first senior spokesmodel team, and I can confidently say that I think I have the BEST team of girls around!! These girl are seriously some of the sweetest, most beautiful girls I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Out of over 120 applications, these 10 girls have quickly become some of my closets friends and biggest supporters! I hold each and every one of them so close to my heart, and I cannot wait for a full year of exciting things to come! If you missed the post about how I selected + notified my spokesmodels, you can read it HERE!

While there have already been so many exciting shoots + events with these wonderful girls, this one has been one of my favorites! It was the first time ALL of the girls were together in one place, and we had the best time sharing a yummy Valentine’s Day themed lunch at Bravo (my FAVORITE Italian restaurant)! Everything was beautifully styled by Ally Allison Events, and I can’t thank her enough for all of her help in preparation! Another huge thank you to Monkee’s of Fredericksburg and The Popcorn Bag for their amazing contributions to the spokesmodels’ goodie bags!

The BEST part about this luncheon was that I had the opportunity to snap photos of each of my amazing girls, even in the cold, and I get to introduce each of them here on the blog!! YAY! Introducing my FABULOUS 2016 senior spokesmodel team!!
