I can’t exactly remember the first time I met Ashleigh, but that’s because we were only 12 years old! We met at Skatequest, which was totally the cool thing to do in middle school, and through mutual friends saw each other at various middle schooler outings… meaning we probably walked the length of the mall together and skated around in a circle countless times :) The one thing I ALWAYS thought of when I thought of Ashleigh was how drop dead gorgeous she is. Even when we were 13, she was stunning! All anyone could talk about were her bright blue eyes and gorgeous smile. I have to admit, I was a little jealous of her!! ;) We hadn’t seen each other in years when she asked me about senior pictures and so I was SO excited for her shoot!! She’s even more beautiful now and her HAIRRRR! That’s all I have to say. Just see for yourself…! About halfway through her shoot I asked, “Do you ever get told that you look like Jessica Simpson?” To which she responded, “YES!!” I can totally see it!! And then later in the shoot, I felt like I was photographing Taylor Swift! Obviously if you look like multiple celebrities, that’s clearly a telltale sign that you’re just naturally beautiful!! Okay I’ll stop rambling on about how gorgeous this girl is and get to the photos :) I have to say, she’s not only beautiful on the outside but also so beautiful on the inside too. It felt like we hadn’t lost any time at all and were back hanging out in middle school again!! …Without the preteen awkwardness. Haha!! Ashleigh, thank you SO much for asking me to take your college senior portraits. I’m so excited for what your future holds and I hope we get to hang out again soon!! Xoxo!!
This was the first shot I took of her… she’s a natural!!!
Ahhhh so pretty!!
Loved her props!!
So glad we met on her campus at University of Mary Washington! It made the perfect backdrop!!
Annnnd now we get into the sunset/shoreline photos. Oh my WORD.
Ashleigh’s a Redskins fan (obviously!!) so we had to include some skins love!
Graduating!! SO exciting!
Such a fun shoot! Ashleigh, I hope you LOVE all these photos as much as I do!! Xoxo!!!
