JaQuayla's Graduation Session

I totally love my community of shoot and share photographers! I love connecting and my local shoot and share group allows for us all to share information, learn from one another, and just share fun and motivational posts. A few weeks ago I was skimming through this Facebook group and found JaQuayla's post looking for a fellow photographer to take her graduation photos in downtown Lynchburg. I am totally in love with the area and decided to throw my name in the pool. Shortly after, JaQuayla messaged me excited about our style and the opportunity to work together! It's such a compliment when anyone loves our work, but I feel extra special when a fellow photographer singles us out!! :)

We met in downtown Lynchburg on the perfect day. There were even some spring blooms still out! As we walked around, I got to learn so much more about this graduate-to-be. Do you know what I learned?? She is totally amazing! Seriously, a PR double major, looking at graduate school, working and schooling at the same time, and is an RA on top of it all!! If that wasn't enough of a threat, this girl is STUNNING! Seriously, it did not matter where we stopped, she was going to rock it!

There was an old worn down stair case that overlooked downtown. JaQuayla must have thought I was insane for wanting to stop here but it turned out to be an amazing spot!!
