Mary Bordeaux | Boutique Senior Session Fredericksburg, VA

Senior Sessions

From the very beginning, I just knew that Mary’s senior session was going to be absolutely amazing! Sometimes summer senior sessions are really hard to schedule here in VA, because the weather can be SO unpredictable. We had to reschedule Mary’s session FIVE TIMES before we had a beautiful sunny day, but it was SO worth it! The weather was perfect + so was everything else about this session!

Mary booked an Ultimate Boutique Senior Session with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg and her outfits were AMAZING because of it! I love nothing more than spending 2 hours with my seniors before the start of their session to give them a personalized, private shopping experience with professional styling advice! We shopped the entire store to find Mary these outfits and they could NOT be more perfect! Boutique senior sessions always end up being favorites!!! 🙂

Enjoy my favorites from Mary’s drop-dead gorgeous shoot! If you are a 2016 senior, spring dates are now OPEN! Learn more about the #htpseniors experience HERE!
