Today we’re featuring our senior photo shoot with Ashley who’s a senior at Richmond Burton High School in Richmond, Illinois!
I love working with seniors who are excited about being in front of the camera and Ashley was exactly that! When she told me she’d wanted to be an nFocus Rep since Junior High, I knew we were in for a dream shoot!
Lots of great photos from our two shoots together, in the studio and outside. Check them out and then read what Ashley has to say about her nFocus experience and life in general!
