Fredericksburg Summer Senior Sessions Danielle + Mandie | 2018 Spokesmodels

Senior Sessions

I feel like I haven’t blogged a senior session in AGES!!! Because I haven’t…it’s been over two months!! Now that seniors are heading back to school and kickstarting their last year, I call this “senior season” because I’ll be shooting and blogging senior sessions like crazy through the fall!! This year, I have 18 (yes, 18!) spokesmodels and I just adore them all. I kickstarted my senior season with Danielle and Mandie, two of my adorable reps, and we had an AMAZING time exploring Fredericksburg!

Both of these ladies are absolutely adorable, full of life and joy, and super impressive all around. I couldn’t be prouder of them!! Overtime I talk about my spokesmodels on the blog I feel like a proud momma bear…haha! But it’s true!! I think that they’re all so incredible and I’ve been dying to get them all in front of my camera.

To kick things off, here are a few of my favorites from Danielle’s senior session! Her relaxed, boho style was SO fun to photograph!
