Longwood Gardens Summer Senior Session

Jul 14, 2023

From 2020 all the way to 2023, the Hagan sisters have never disappointed at their photo shoots. You may remember that last name because Lauren was one of my senior spokesmodels the first year I had the team. Check out her session here. Now, this year, Paige was one of my senior spokesmodels.

She brought the same energy and natural beauty to her Longwood Gardens summer senior session!

Plus, we had an extra special treat to do some family photos of them all at the beginning of the session, so I got to catch up with everyone for a little. This family has been such a huge support to me and my business. It is always a fun time catching up! Especially when they just got home from a trip to Italy! It was so fun reminiscing about the time I was there when I studied abroad!

What a beautiful place to see!

Since Paige selected Longwood Gardens for her location, we were able to bring back that Italian feel into the photos. Just wait until l you see the beautiful backdrops we found. The family started out in a combination of blues and greens that complemented each other so incredibly well. And the arched wall with ivy growing on it was meant-to-be! These family photos turned out to be some of my favorites! Then when it was just Paige’s turn, she started off in a beautiful white romper.

I need to get me one of them!

It made her pop off the very colorful floral background that Longwood Gardens is known for. Plus, we found a beautiful white wall with black accent trim that gave a very modern feel to the outfit. We ended down in the fountain area with a light blue floral dress that she could have fun with and a bright pink dress that looked incredible on her. Her outfit choices were on-point!

She knocked this Longwood Gardens summer senior session out of the park!

I don’t know what I am going to do now that the Hagan sisters have all graduated from high school. Guess I’ll have to drive out to Penn State and photograph them there! That wouldn’t be the worst thing because I am a huge Nittany Lions fan! Paige, I wish you the absolute best in this next stage in your life! I know you are going to do amazing things. It was such a joy having you on the team!

You brought so much happiness to every shoot!

I am so honored to have seen you grow over these last couple years. Always know you have a friend that you can reach out to about anything! Congrats on the graduation and have fun at Penn State! WE ARE!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
