Sometimes, I just need a creative boost or even just some time to shoot for myself...this was one of those times. I love it when I can work with my models one on one...and this session didn't disappoint me:)

This summer has been a busy one! And until I can blog each session, I thought I would share a quick recap of this summer's senior sessions and some of my favorite images so far from those sessions!
Alyssa is a 2015 senior at Chatham Hall and one of Megan Bryant Photography's 2015 senior models. Her senior portrait session was extremely unique because we got to use the grounds on her campus. Chatham Hall has a beautiful campus and the day was perfect for photos...we dodged a few storm clouds, but it all worked out! She is such a lovely young lady. Enjoy a few favorites from her day:
The campus had such gorgeous landscaping to complement Alyssa's outfits!
One of my fave photos ever...
She brought along this hat, so I just had to do a shot like this:)
Alyssa, working with you is always a pleasure:) I wish you the best with your future endeavors!
Class of 2015 seniors, it's not too late to book a session! Contact me today!
Brooke's senior photo session was definitely a memorable one. She's a girl who knows who she is and wanted to showcase that in her photos. We started her session on the softball field at DRHS . Brooke is a ball player right down to her bones, so of course we had to spotlight that:) She also has a true love that goes by the name Jeep! LOL...girls and their rides, right? We finished up Brooke's portraits out in the Chatham area. Here are a few faves from her portrait session:
She has such a killer smile:) A true natural beauty!
I had that scarf with me and threw it on over her blue dress...PERFECT combo:) The shot above was Brooke's Mom's favorite from the day:)
Thanks so much for choosing me as your senior photographer, Brooke! I hope the rest of your senior year is a great time:)

So last month, I got to work with Vickie Black, the owner of Jeremy & Vickie Photographers as well as Senior Style Guide, and Kristie Bradley of Kristie Bradley Photography! Together we led a shootout/portfolio build for senior photographers. It was so much fun! The weather was not too hot, as I had expected, and the attendees were so excited to learn from us! They came from areas in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina! We started things off with a one hour Q&A, where the attendees were able to ask us anything they wanted to! Then the real fun began with shooting 4 teen/senior models with different styles in various areas of downtown Richmond. Kristie provided the models for us, and they were absolutely amazing! I spent most of my time helping the attendees get their shots, but here are a couple of shots that I managed to squeeze in:)
We all had such a great time! You can view more photos on Instagram via the #ssgshootoutva, including my behind the scenes photos! There is also a video recap HERE!
To say that we had a blast on this session would be an understatement...the only thing I would have changed would have been to start early to be able to enjoy it longer and get even more awesome photos! I wanted to get my senior model team together again and have some fun. They were pretty thrilled with the Americana theme I chose. They did a FABULOUS job pulling their outfits together! Enjoy a few favorites from the session!
Song credit: "American Kids" by Kenny Chesney
Ohhhh and choosing a song that fit just right seemed impossible. But I like the way the video turned out:) I have such a great group of seniors...way better than Kenny makes out American Kids to be! Sure, they know how to have a good time though! I seriously would take in any of these seniors as my own.
If you're looking to book your senior photos with me, please DO NOT wait! Slots are filling up...I still have a few for summer, but Fall is almost full! I look forward to hearing from you!
Caitlin is one of MBP's 2015 Senior Models:) I am so excited to have her on my team! Caitlin blew me away during her in-person interview, so when I decided to try something new with the studio formals, I called her up and asked her if she would be interested. She was, and after I saw her prom dress, I knew this was going to be an amazing experience for us both. The color of her dress went perfectly with what was in my head. It's always exciting to try new things, and I had a blast trying out artificial lighting and a whole new style of photography.
MUA: Kim Dalton (Caitlin said she felt like a princess!)
Here are a few of my faves from her session. She was like royalty, for real. I couldn't get over how glamorous she was!
See what I mean about royalty? Looks like a pose for the Queen!
Her smile is infectious!
And those EYES!
