A University of Richmond Shoot

  • Meet Julia

each senior shoot that I do, I feel older and older!! When Julia first came into my life she was in her freshman year and I remember thinking to myself “Wow, when that class graduates, then I’ll feel old!!”… Welp! It’s true.

Only with friends will we do something crazy like that!!
