Fun Girly Styled Senior Session | Richmond, VA Hope Taylor Workshop

Senior Sessions

During the two-day Hope Taylor Workshops, the first day is dedicated to wedding photography while the second day is dedicated to everything senior! Yesterday I blogged all of my favorite images from the wedding styled shoot, and today I’m sharing some of my beautiful 2018 spokesmodels rock the senior portion of the workshop! I absolutely LOVE collaborating with VICI for each workshop to create the perfect looks for each model.

After I teach all about lighting, posing and client interaction, attendees are broken into small groups to photograph the seniors at different stations. This way, they are able to have tons of one-on-one time with the models to get amazing, portfolio-building images from the shoot! My senior models ROCKED it during the shoot (even after getting up at 6am and being in hair and makeup for 4 hours!) and I have so many favorites!

HUGE thanks to all of the amazing vendors on the creative team:
