Monkee’s Spring Style

Senior Sessions

These last few weeks have been full of a whole LOT of shooting, but I think one of my favorite events was my spokesmodel day with Monkee’s to photograph their spring clothing! When Catherine, the owner of Monkee’s, approached me with this fun idea…I was SO excited!! When we began planning all of the fun little details, I was over-the-moon ecstatic! Shooting for boutiques is something that makes my heart so happy, because fashion is a huge part of the inspiration behind¬†my entire senior photography business! So, when I got to notify my spokesmodels that we would be having a private shopping experience at Monkee’s before the store opened with custom styling advice, things just kept getting better and better!

My spokesmodel team + I spent the morning at Monkee’s choosing custom looks for each girl based on their own personal style + taste. They got to choose from dozens of amazing brands and find dresses, tops, jewelry, shoes, accessories and more! The fabulous ladies at Monkee’s even surprised each girl with a gift card + HTPSenior discount! Then, we all headed across the street for a yummy pizza lunch before going to the studio to prep for the shoot! Our entire afternoon was spent exploring downtown + shooting all of the gorgeous pieces from the store!

If you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces, definitely head into downtown Fredericksburg and shop Monkee’s! Or, if you would like to book a Boutique Styling Senior Session with us to include on-the-spot styling at Monkee’s, you can find more information HERE!
