Class of 2018 Seniors Styled Shoot | Boho Chic Tea Party

The end of the summer always brings back memories of picking out a new backpack and notebooks, getting my highlights redone and maybe a small trim if I was feeling adventurous, and just getting back into the swing of school again. As I am going into my senior year of college in a week, I’ve […]
