Kirsten | Virginia Beach, Virginia Senior Portrait Photographer

It's not often that I get to do portraits at the beach so when I found out Kirsten wanted some senior portraits at the beach, I was so excited!! I was already visiting friends in Virginia Beach the weekend she chose so it worked out perfectly!! We spent our first bit of the shoot at a beautiful beach that was practically deserted and then did more at a park nearby!! Kirsten is actually my cousin but I don't see her often so it was nice getting to catch up and hear all about her busy senior year coming up and her future college plans!! I'm so excited for her and I am especially glad to be sharing her portraits today on the blog!! Kirsten, thanks for letting me take your pictures!! I'm honored! Hope you love them. :)

Lexie | Charlottesville, Virginia Portrait Photographer

This is one of my favorite shoots to date! I love creative shoots. There's no pressure and they really allow me to try out new things that I'd never do on a senior shoot. Instagram has been so great lately for finding people interested in modeling for my creative shoots! I put a post out asking if anyone wanted to do a fashion shoot with a dress from Rent the Runway. I got a lot of feedback but when Lexie commented, I realized she already had some incredible dresses that I had been wanting to photograph so I knew she'd be perfect! I also photographed her seniors and knew she'd be comfortable enough to walk around bustling downtown with a gown on. Haha. And thankfully she was because she got quite the stares. Anyway, we had an awesome time and I have seriously been dying to share these but I wanted to make sure I had the chance to be creative with the editing before I released anything! So here are my favorites from our little fashion shoot in Charlottesville!
