Meet Rachel

Richmond Senior Shoot

I wish

I could shoot more of these sessions because they’re just so much fun… but unfortunately, I have to save my few extra evenings for just our friends and family’s shoots! Last Monday, it was Brendan and Rachel’s turn! We’ve known these two for a while and so when they asked about having their senior portraits done, we decided to do them on the same day and them have a double date afterwards! Our plan worked out and Michael was able to join us for the shoot and dinner afterwards! So this is Rachel’s post (Brendan’s is coming soon… get ready for that one:) and I just have to say


that I may be a tiny bit jealous of this girl’s ability to be in front of the camera! After only 10 minutes of warmup shots, she was ready to roll! Rachel is a sweetheart and I’m so glad I got to be the one to shoot her portraits for her!! We walked all over downtown as we shot and then ended up at Station 2 for dinner! (It’s pretty good… except for the fried green beans!). It was fun hanging out and I have severalllll money shots to show ya! Enjoy!

Gosh you’re beautiful!! Love these!
Whoever owns this… thank you:)
A favorite!
