A Bonus | Brandy Senior

SO WEIRD … My friend Brandy has officially graduated JMU … I remember meeting this girl back when she was a freshman first week of Marching Band (MRDs … What’s up!) and now she is graduated and moving forward with Peace Corps! Gosh, where has the time GONE?! Love this girl to death!

Ever since the first time I did my first ever portrait session with my friends, I have been promising her a time when we would get together and do portraits … well, years later and still no session! We have seriously planned out like 5 sessions and every single time the weather has been bad! Including this past weekend. šŸ™ We had to reschedule her session that was supposed to have a few weeks ago to this past weekend due to bad weather. Of course Monday morning comes around and it is raining! Boo. So the night before, after Cat’s beautiful senior session and after the sun went down, we ran outside to try using as much sunlight as possible for 5 minutes to grab a few photos. Let me just say that this girl has always been very free spirited and she definitely showed that in just the few clicks of the camera! Lol! This is just a bonus for me to show ya’ll her craziness. šŸ˜‰ And this is why I love her! Haha! We are planning to do a full session to celebrate her graduating JMU in a few weeks! Excited! For now, here are a few photos! šŸ™‚ Enjoy!


Totally Brandy… šŸ™‚
