Charlottesville Portrait Session: Jenna

Coco Chanel once said that “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”.

Jenna is most definitely classy and fabulous.

She is also intelligent, lovely, graceful and kind, and last week I had the privilege of spending some time with her and her family at their Charlottesville home. We mostly took pictures around their beautiful yard, and let me tell you, after experiencing week after week in the upper-90s, we were loving a day in the low 80s!

You might recognize Jenna from the photo shoot I did at the Boar’s Head Inn a few months back. Jenna is definitely a girl after my own heart. She has a plethora of period dresses that she has purchased from thrift stores around the area. I’m telling you – we would have been best friends in high school! The one that she was wearing for the first half of her portrait session actually was worn by Pearl Bailey’s daughter! Needless to say, Jenna, you looked absolutely stunning!

Classy? Check.

Fabulous? Check.

Oh, Jenna, there really are just no words.

Wow. I love this one!

So after Grace Kelly and I:-)had circled around the entire house, she decided to go inside and change into something a little bit more casual.

Not surprisingly, however, there was nothing casual about her look.

Penny, the family dog, was watching longingly from the screen door, so we finally let her out to join in on the action. Here was the result:


Penny just can’t resist.:-)I even got my share of kisses from her.

Striking, Jenna.

That’s right. Work it. 😉

Takin’ Penny for a little stroll.

Oh, Penny, what are we going to do with you?

Jenna, blue is definitely your color!

Jenna, it was such an honor to document your senior year and to enter into your life, even just in a small way. You truly are a stunning young woman, blessed with so many gifts and so much awaiting you. I hope you have a great senior year, and I look forward to watching the many ways in which God is going to use you.

Un abrazo,
