Sam Irish | Summer Senior Session Fredericksburg, VA

Sam is one of my beautiful 2017 senior spokesmodels and her senior session last week was so gorgeous!! Her bubbly, hilarious personality is always so much fun to be around and I knew her shoot would be a perfect reflection of that. When Sam applied to be a spokesmodel, she immediately caught my eye because her responses were so well-thought-out and adorable! Her parents are both in the airline industry, so she is a frequent traveler (so jealous!!) and she is also insanely involved in her school and community! Cheerleading, swimming, soccer, life guarding, clubs, non-profits….you name it, she’s doing it!

I am so, so grateful to have Sam on the team and LOVED working with her last week! It was a HOT afternoon, but she rocked it and we worked at some of my favorite locations!!! Enjoy a little peek into her shoot 🙂 Love you, Sam!!
