Senior Sessions

I feel like it’s been WAY too long since I’ve shared a senior session on the blog!! It really hasn’t been that long…but I feel like I go through senior withdrawals sometimes. I’ve been working hard with all of my beautiful 2017 senior reps (and I can’t wait to introduce them all to you SOON!!!) but I also had the opportunity to work with Jillian for her senior shoot this week and I am in LOVE with her entire session!

Jillian drove over 2 hours for her session from Northern VA (WHAT!? So honored!!) and it was HOT! Like…100 degrees kinda hot. But you wold NEVER be able to tell in her images! She rocked it!! We had to reschedule her shoot 3 different times due to bad weather…but I am almost glad that we did! Because when last week rolled around, ALL of the flowers in downtown Fredericksburg had bloomed and they were so beautiful. We shot with stunning flowers, in the river and at one of my favorite urban spots overlooking the city…and I just LOVE the variety in her shoot!!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Jillian’s session! And thank you SO much to Hello Darling Beauty for rocking hair and makeup, as always!!
