I LOVE kind-hearted and adventurous seniors, like Liz, who are ready to explore new places like this field at Panorama Farms. Liz just officially graduated from High Point University earlier this morning and I think her smile says it all. I am glad that we found Panorama Farms to capture this season of life and her accomplishment.

Ever since I established my photography business 3 years ago, I was looking forward to this moment and working hard to get there. Like so many of you seniors, I was ready to soak up my last semester, cherish every laugh with my friends, and prepare for it to the end. Within a week, it all changed. The end came two months too soon. There are no words that I or anyone else can say that will make everything better. Your life COMPLETELY changed. Whether you are a senior in high school or college, there are memories that you feel robbed of.

For those of you that know me, know that I am extroverted. 2019 has been such a good year. I met many people through photographing seniors. My favorite thing about photographing high school and college seniors is getting to know each senior by taking our time during the session talking and sharing stories. 2019 senior photos were filled with GORGEOUS pink blossoms, friendly pups, champagne, and confetti.

I am excited to announce AEP’s first graduation representative team!!! Now I am guessing that some of you are thinking… what is a representative team? AEP’s Rep Team is a group of girls that represent Ashley Eagleson Photography. Together we brainstorm, collaborate, and support one another.
