Dianna Hanvichid | Summer Senior Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Senior Sessions

It’s been a full week on the blog this week and I love it 🙂 I didn’t want to finish the week off without sharing Dianna’s adorable senior session, so it’s going up on a Friday even though I never blog on Fridays!!! But I think it’s worth it!

Dianna is one of my gorgeous 2017 spokesmodels and her senior session this month was BEAUTIFUL! We had the most perfect summer afternoon and gorgeous locations. We started in downtown Fredericksburg at two of my favorite spots before finishing up overlooking the city on top of a parking garage! Some of my favorite locations are ones that I stumbled upon by accident…and they end up being ones that I use ALL the time 🙂

Dianna has such a sweet heart and is one of the kindest people I’ve met. She is ADORABLE and I am so glad she was able to bring her friends along for the end of her shoot-we had so much fun! Enjoy some of my favorites and leave her some love!
