|Tell us about yourself and your business.
I am a Teen and High School Photographer based in Yorktown Virginia. My business, The Gray Senior, is available for local and destination portrait experiences. My goal is to create a relaxed, unique portrait experience that celebrates life, expresses style and captures memories.
I started my photography business in 2013 and just this year started my first Model Team. It has been a fabulous year with my team. Local vendors have been so gracious in helping us with several styled shoots. We also have some exciting plans this fall, that we are looking forward to sharing with our fans.
I am officially a college Mom and love spending time with my dog Jack.

|What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
Pay more attention to the direction of the light instead of the background. Don’t be distracted by a gorgeous backdrop stick with areas with consistent light. Make editing much quicker.
