Lena Larson | Summer Senior Session Downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia

This week is probably one of my favorites on the blog for quite some time…because I’m getting to share SO many shoots that I love!!! Lena’s senior session last week quickly became a new favorite and I’ve been dying to share it! She was the very last one of my 2016 spokesmodels to do her senior shoot…and I’m so sad to see them go. But Lena definitely finished out the shoots with a bang and I hope you love it as much as I do so I don’t feel crazy!!!

We started Lena’s shoot on one of my favorite downtown blocks. It just so happened to be bloomed with fresh hydrangeas…uhm, yes, please. Then we headed to the beach and finished up on a rooftop at golden hour…I die. So many new favorite images from this session!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Lena’s shoot and leave her some love in the comments! XO!
