Briana’s Glowy Summer Senior Session at George Mason University Hope Taylor Seniors

Senior Sessions

Since when did I become a college graduate photographer?! I’m kind of loving it!!! I always photographed college seniors in addition to high schoolers…I just never advertised it!! Somehow, this year, I ended up getting more COLLEGE inquiries than high school…and it’s been SO fun!! This was my second senior this season on the George Mason campus and it’s so fun to photograph! Briana absolutely NAILED IT with her makeup and outfits…I could’ve photographed her all day! We had the prettiest weather and gorgeous glowy light. I just loved every second of it!

Enjoy some of my favorites from this senior session!!! And be sure to scroll to the bottom to see the GLOW!!! The light was incredible!!!
