Joyful Spring Senior Session in Downtown Fredericksburg Amber Spuchesi | Fredericksburg, VA

Senior Sessions

This is the FIRST senior blog post of 2018!!! AH!!! I have photographed quite a few beautiful senior sessions these last few weeks..but I only blog spokesmodel shoots. Amber was my first spokesmodel of the year (she is a 2018 spokesmodel but booked her shoot for springtime) and I LOVED every second! There is one location in particular in downtown Fredericksburg that is my favorite to photograph in the spring. It only blooms for a short period of time…and somehow we got SO lucky!

When I met with Amber in Fredericksburg to choose outfits, the first thing she said is “give me FLOWERS”!! She was speaking my language! We found so many beautiful spots with fluffy blooms…I was in spring heaven. What an amazing way to kick off seniors on the blog this year! We were chilly…but I don’t think you can even tell in these photos!! Golden hour + fluffy blooms + gorgeous outfits = the HAPPIEST Hope!!!

Amber, I’ve loved having you on the spokesmodel team this year! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites!
