2018 Senior Spokesmodel Mini Sessions Hope Taylor Seniors

Senior Sessions

Last weekend was SUCH a fun, jam-packed weekend! I photographed all 19 of my beautiful 2018 spokesmodels for their mini sessions in Fredericksburg. Each and every one of them took my breath away – I am one lucky photographer! These girls are not only beautiful – they are smart, kind, outgoing, bubbly and SO involved in their communities. I feel so blessed to have each girl as a part of my team and cannot WAIT for the rest of this year with them!

We spent the entire day at the studio for hair and makeup with GoGo Gorgeous (my favorites!!). While the girls got all dolled up, we played games, took photos, ate pizza and bonded as a team. It couldn’t have been better! We headed out to shoot and…it started raining RIGHT when we got there. We ran and hid for cover while the rain passed…but there were storms in the forecast the entire rest of the night. Drew told me I only had 30 minutes to photograph NINETEEN girls…whew. So, I went to work and started shooting as fast as I could…and then Drew ran over to tell me the radar completely cleared up and the rain DISAPPEARED off the radar!! Crazy! God is so good! We ended up with the most beautiful golden hour and I just love every photo!

Just a quick thank you to my amazing studio sponsors who provide so many gorgeous outfits + accessories for all of my girls: Monkee’s of Fredericksburg, Peacaloo Boutique, Oak & Ale + VICI; to GoGo Gorgeous for an AMAZING job on hair and makeup; and to Joshua Bryan Cinema for filming the entire day for a MAJOR project launching soon!
