I’m taking a look through my favorite images of 2015 and selecting my favorites! It’s fun to look back and see everything again! Today’s post is all about SENIORS! I’m a big fan of senior sessions! I like brainstorming with them on where they want to go, adventuring and finding new spots, getting to know what their interests and hobbies are, and learning about what they want to do after they graduate! I worked with some incredible high school and college seniors this year! Keep scrolling to see my favorites! You can see their full sessions by clicking on the words highlighted in green!

We’ll start with Libby’s senior session at James Madison University!
