From 2020 all the way to 2023, the Hagan sisters have never disappointed at their photo shoots.

Vibrant Speedwell Forge Lake Senior Session

Apr 20, 2023

One of those times just happened at Marley’s vibrant Speedwell Forge Lake senior session! Each senior is able to do up to four outfits throughout their session. I love giving […]

Boho Overlook Park Senior Session

One tough cookie! This is how I would describe Renee in one sentence. She is one tough cookie! I first met Renee back on one of the volleyball teams that I coached a few years ago. She always came ready to play and was tough! Not much phased her. But it wasn’t until our first […]
