Regina: Boutique Spring Senior Session in Downtown Fredericksburg Hope Taylor Seniors

Senior Sessions

Guys…SENIORS ARE BACK!!! If you’ve been following for a bit, you may have noticed that I didn’t photograph many seniors last year. And it was intentional! I had to cut out an area of my business to allow room to create courses and education. It was SO hard and I’ve missed it so much. I opened up dates a few months ago for a handful of seniors and am officially booked through the entire spring. CRAZY!!! It felt SO good to get behind my camera and photograph seniors again…and I would say the senior season kicked off to an AMAZING start!!!

Regina is absolutely adorable. She booked a boutique experience with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg. This means that she paid extra for an upgraded package where she was able to shop the entire store on the day of her shoot and wear anything she’d like!!! This experience is always SO much fun!! It’s like being a real life Barbie doll for a day! Plus, then my seniors don’t have to stress about outfits and knowing what they wear will photograph well. I work with the stylists at Monkee’s to put together the PERFECT wardrobe that reflects their personality!

We explored so many of my favorite spots in downtown Fredericksburg and the flowers were in PERFECT bloom!! We even found a hidden rose bush that was absolutely stunning…just you wait and see as you scroll!!! Enjoy some of my favorites of Regina! I’m SO happy that #hopetaylorseniors are back!!!


Regina was truly such a natural!!
