Senior Spokesmodel Styled Shoot 2017 Quirk Hotel | Richmond, VA

Senior Sessions

After a snowed-out styled shoot planned for earlier this month, I was so excited to hangout with my 2017 spokesmodel team again this weekend! We all spent the day at Elle Style Studios for hair and makeup before heading to Quirk Hotel for a super fun afternoon! We had incredible outfits provided by Anthropologie Richmond and Wardrobe Boutique (just wait until you scroll and see!!!) But, one of my favorite things about every experience with these girls is how close they have all become. Each year, the spokesmodel team becomes less like a group of strangers and more like a close-knit family. In between hair and makeup, styling, shooting and all of the craziness that comes along with styled shoots, they make time for real, vulnerable conversation that is more valuable than any of these photos.

If you are a class of 2018 senior interested in applying for this year’s team, we are closing applications early! We have already received so many amazing applications, we will be closing applications THIS week to have more time to go through and select this year’s team! If you are interested in applying, you can learn more and find the application HERE!

And, lastly, I want to say a HUGE thank you to Caroline for all of her help with the planning and execution of every single one of these events. She is such a blessing in my life and is a huge part of the senior spokesmodel experience. So thankful! Enjoy some of my favorites from our spokesmodel styled shoot !

How adorable are these half-zips from Rocky Top Embroidery?! I loved gifting these to my girls earlier this year!
