Riley, Julia, and Gracie seriously rocked their senior prom portraits! I have been looking forward to this session for a while now and they turned out amazing! These three ladies are so beautiful and have their own style that matches each personality! Riley is spunky and not afraid to try something daring, like the sassy red dress she chose. She also brought along her prom date who looked very charming in his prom attire and they were TOO cute together!! Julia has a soft and sweet personality which goes along with her choice of a beautiful white gown with pretty beading at the top. Gracie is girly and enchanting, much like her pink twirly dress that I probably would have chosen myself if that were available for my prom back in the day! 🙂 Each of these girls knocked it out of the park and the VMFA even gave us some pretty pink trees that made for magazine worthy images! Just wait until you see those blooms (insert heart eyes emoji)!! I’m in love with these portraits and I just adore these girls!
FINALLY!! It’s about time I could share part one of my workshop styled shoot!
Can you believe this? A pink three-tiered cake with peonies on top. Sprinkles and flowers. Unicorn treats. Shimmery pink macarons. And the sweetest “sweets stand” you could imagine. DESSERT HEAVEN, PEOPLE.
As for the senior models… literally blown away. These girls were fierce, stunning, and so much fun! There’s no way I was that cute and full of personality when I was a senior in high school! Gracie, Libby, Lauren, Rachel, and Kelsey rocked their photos and I couldn’t be more excited about their images! Between the pop of lip color, cool-girl hairstyles, the adorable outfits, and their sweet smiles, I am obsessed!!
Shoutout to all the vendors who played a role in this awesome styled shoot! I’m so happy with how everything came out and everyone was amazing to work with!

I have been wanting to book a VCU graduation session since moving back to Richmond, and it finally happened! I was so excited when Stacy and Shinal reached out to me for their Spring graduation session! Friend shoots are always so much fun, especially when they are bffs and roommates like these two! But my favorite part? The caps. Stacy’s cap read, “in the waves of change, we find our true direction.” Shinal’s cap said, “dream while you’re wide awake”. If these quotes aren’t inspiring, I don’t know what is! I loved that I was able to feel a connection to these quotes in my own way as there is so much meaning behind those words. These two women are going to make a difference in whatever direction they choose in life, and they will empower other women to do the same. It was clear to see that, even in the short 2 hours we had together.
Congratulations to Stacy and Shinal on this major accomplishment and best wishes on your next big journey!!! I know you’re going to do amazing things!
