Senior Inspiration – {Alexandra Wallace}

January 23, 2017

Best friend sessions are always fun!  They can result in the best genuine smiles amongst the seniors and lots and lots of giggles!  And that is exactly what Alexandra of Alexandra Wallace captured in this best friend session below.

“I normally do individual senior sessions, but Maddie and Olivia requested that they do their shoot together,” said Alexandra.  “I absolutely love that we did things that way because the shoot was full of natural smiles and tons of giggling!”

Check out this fun best friend senior session below and read what else Alexandra had to say about it.  Thank you for sharing your work with Seniorologie Alexandra!
