After many reschedules, rearranging, and the changes to our original first shoot, I FINALLY got the chance to work with my Class of 2021! This group of ladies and a gentleman is a diverse and wonderful representation of young adults from Central Virginia. I’m also so happy to have many siblings from past VIPteam members. This is year EIGHT of my coveted year-long experience for seniors!
Because of COVID-19, we had to shoot individually instead of my usual group launch shoot. At first, I was super disappointed to have to do things different from the past. But, our “Pets or Props” theme was able to feature each of these soon-to-be senior’s individuality and I LOVED it! It gave them a chance to be creative with their talents/loves which allowed me the same!
Enjoy getting to know these amazing individuals!
