Emily's Junior Portraits // Downtown Hampton Senior Photographer

It seems like so long ago that I took Cody's senior portraits, but in reality it was almost exactly a year ago! Cody has now graduated high school and is attending the best college ever - Virginia Tech, of course - and his younger sister Emily is entering her junior year of high school. I know I shouldn't feel old yet since I'm still in my early 20s but...this is one of those moments!

Emily absolutely shone during her portrait session. We walked around downtown Hampton for a little while, on an afternoon where rain was threatening to ruin our plans the whole time but never came. She is a sweet girl with a huge heart and a bright personality, excited about the future and loving life right now!

Emily, thanks so much for hanging out with me on such a crazy, windy, almost-stormy day! I'm so thankful I got to meet you last year and spend some more time with you this fall. I know I'm going to feel so old next year when you're a SENIOR, but until then I just feel blessed to know you and your whole family. You are gorgeous, girl! Have an awesome junior year :)
