Downtown Fredericksburg Senior Sessions Seren + Sydney

Senior Sessions

I don’t think I will ever stop getting excited about photographing my senior spokesmodels this year! 6 sessions down, 12 to go and I think I could photograph every single one of them for days and never get bored!! I love exploring downtown Fredericksburg with these ladies, jamming to music in between locations and talking all about college decisions and homework assignments. They are all so beautiful, but their hearts are what make them so incredible.

Seren and Sydney are both SO much fun and I had a blast with them for their shoots last week! I checked the weather religiously leading up to the time we were meeting…but somehow a severe storm popped up on the radar and was scheduled to hit right in the middle of our shoot! We were storm chasing the entire time to finish before it hit and it ended up being HILARIOUS! We managed to finish RIGHT as the sky opened up and they both totally rocked it!

I adore you both of these girls and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their senior sessions! Seren up first!
