Urban Senior Pictures – Richmond, VA

Meet Aly!!! She’s a senior at Maggie Walker Governors School in Richmond, a total fashionista with a love of the 80’s, looks killa in mom jeans, and has the most amazing blue eyes. When we sat down to chat during her pre-session consult Aly said she wanted urban senior pictures. So urban she got!

We started Aly’s session at Canal Walk with the bright pops of colors of the murals and general urban feel of the area. Her high waisted mom jeans were perfect along with her purple top. One thing to keep in mind for portraits is to always make sure your outfit compliments the backdrop – not compete with the background! This outfit was perfect.

Other locations we visited during her session were Libby Hill Park (for a softer look but still urban), Great Shiplock Park (for those fun images with the train tressels and sunflare), and last but not least a rooftop in Shockoe Bottom (for some full sun backlit images). Aly’s outfit picks were great for the locations and all fit her style. Check out those boots on the rooftop! What??? So cool.

Here are a few of my very favorite images from her session. This girl needs a modeling contract stat!! Hair and makeup by the amazing Kara Waggoner.

I just LOVE Aly’s urban senior pictures!!! Bring me all the girls who want to explore this amazing city of ours and all it offers!!
