Valentine's Day is coming up...and so I decided to get my crew together for a fun, downtown shoot! I'm glad that we had planned for last weekend considering this weekend's weather! And they thought it was cold last weekend! HA!

As I'm sure most of you are VERY aware of, we've been experiencing LOTS of rain here in Virginia....for really, the past TWO WEEKS. [I want summer back, WAHHHH!] And with lots of rain comes rescheduled photo sessions. Kayley however, was up for the challenge of shooting in the rain. Yes, this was all HER idea!
Summer 2015 has definitely been one for the books...I seriously don't want it to end!! Where do I start? It's certainly been a summer of travel...I've been to NYC, Indiana, and in between:) I want to share some images from this summer's adventures, as well as just reminisce in the memories made!
My group model session was TONS of fun! We went with a boho chic theme, which the girls loved planning for. I had an old chair that I set up in a field. My husband cut some bamboo poles for me (and got eat up with ticks of all sizes) to make a teepee. One of my models brought the area rug....I threw in some pillows and lanterns, and TADA! A hippy camp fit for any sisterhood! LOVED it! I have models this year from Gretna, Chatham, Westover, Dan River, Tunstall, and GW high schools. Included here are my models from Westover, Dan River, Tunstall, and GW. Look for a separate post coming soon of my Gretna and Chatham models. MUA: Katie Mosher, River City Salon and Spa in Danville.
Meet Abby, a GW senior...
Meet Sydney from Westover...and Emmalee, who is homeschooled.
Meet my junior model, Lindsay, from Tunstall!
Meet Brianna (Bri) from Dan River, and Lindsey from Westover!
Ohhhh how I love shots of laughter....
We went down to the creek for a few shots...and a cool down:) The girls enjoyed it!
These ladies are tons of fun to work with...we have since met for our first "Sweet Frog Social." It was nice to be together, especially since Lindsey (from Westover, pictured above) had just lost her Dad to a tragic incident. We all are keeping her and her family in our prayers. I am thankful for such a great group of models who def seem to come together when needed.
Look for more photos of these lovely ladies as their senior sessions approach! If you're hoping to get in on this year's calendar, please don't wait! Summer is almost full (I have some Aug availability). Fall is almost full as well. Use the contact tab at the top to reach me!
I look forward to hearing from you! Megan

Kelsey is one of my 2015 senior models. She has been working hard with promoting MBP...so she was totally game when I shared my ideas with her for this session. Together we planned the outfits all around different edgy looks to pair with the feather crown. I have always wanted to do something like this, so it was nice to shoot something for my own creative outlet:) Here are some faves from the session:
Love this one shot through the leaves...
#modernsenior featured this image below on their Instagram!

Corey is my CHS senior model, and a lovely one at that! We decided to get together for a fun shoot for the 4th. She took my vision and found the outfits herself, and we went from there. This was more of a mini-session, as we were fighting the rain to get it done! Here are a few of my favorites:
Love how the breeze helped me out here;)
Ohhhhh those eyes!!!!
Totally loving this outfit...
Here are a few more:)
We had so much fun, even if it was raining! Like the concept? Let MBP help you plan a concept for your senior session! Contact us via the "Contact" tab!

This session was so much fun! Lindsay and Corey are 2014 MBP Senior Models and were perfect for this shoot. We got some great shots despite the overcast weather...I'm glad we went on with the session though because it rained for like a week after we did this shoot! The flower crowns were made by yours truly:)
Here are a few of my favorites from this session:
This was the only shot that the sun peeked out for...
This one just takes my breath away...
This one is my fave of her...
Aren't these 2 just gorgeous?!

We are so happy to have Lindsay on board as a 2014 senior model! Yesterday was a really cold day, but Lindsay was such a trooper for her dance styled session!Together we had chosen outfits and accessories to make her session a success. I honestly could photograph her everyday and never get tired of it...she is so gorgeous and so talented! There seriously was nothing that she wouldn't do...and she is extremely flexible! I've edited a few of my favorites from yesterday to share with you all, so enjoy!
Lindsay has such grace and poise...
And those eyes...GORGEOUS eyes...she looks like a doll!
We smiled for a few:)
And like I said, there was nothing she wouldn't do! Fierce!
I loved every outfit, but this one is probably my favorite...it just flows and puts off a vibe of its own. Lindsay, again, you look like a doll!
There is so much emotion in this photo...
Wow. Lindsay you were amazing! We can't wait to shoot you again!
If you are a 2014 Senior, don't wait until the last minute to book! The "prime" slots, like fall, book up fast! We can't wait to hear from you:)
Jess is a good friend of mine...so I was so excited when I heard she was expecting! With that being said, I was even more thrilled when she asked me for a maternity session! She is very creative, so I knew she would have tons of ideas to throw at me:) Together we came up with some cute things to celebrate this special time for her and her hubby, Jonathan! I was bummed we ran out of daylight, but we still got a lot of photos! Here are a few of my favorites so far:
This session was done in addition to the garden session...I was going for a flower theme. I had told the ladies to wear summer dresses and bring any hair accessories they had. I didn't expect them to show up with all kinds of accessories! Casie had the flower head piece, a summer hat, and facinators! Bridget ended up wearing the hat, Chloe kept it natural, and Casie ended up looking like my hippie flower child, LOL.
I am so glad that this session didn't go as planned because I ended up having the opportunity to try other things! I hope you enjoy looking through these as much as I enjoyed taking them! These girls are gorgeous and were so much fun!
Here are a few of my favorites!
These ladies are just gorgeous! We had fun tons of fun doing this session...Looking forward to many more!

I had been visioning a garden session in my head for a few months now...
No, this one didn't quite turn out like my vision, so I may do another garden session later, but I did manage to make something out of it:) My sister Bridget was the perfect person for this session! She is fun and full of personality, so of course the session went well:)
Here are a few of my favorites: Bridget in the garden with the green beans...
I love this one:)
Just a little mud never hurt anyone;)
Isn't she stunning?!
Planning another garden session...and accepting offers to let me use your garden!
