Belle | Longwood Gardens Senior Portrait Session | John Carroll School | Bel Air, MD

Meet Belle! Belle is a class of 2022 DOP Senior Rep from the John Carroll School. Belle was part of the first rep editorial shoot back in May! The rep shoot was floral boho and in a lot of ways, Belle's senior session had the same vibe!

Belle selected Longwood Gardens for her location. Longwood is truly a magical place... And Des' photos capture it perfectly! Longwood is an expansive botanical garden with Italian water fountains, topiaries, extensive flower gardens, and a beautiful conservatory. Longwood makes for the most incredible senior session location. After seeing this gallery, you'll be in agreement too!

Belle also added on hair and makeup to her session. The talented Rachael Wontrop of Fleurt Beauty and April Kenney, owner and stylist at Salon 1401 in Bel Air, MD totally nailed Belle's look!

Here's what Belle had to say about her senior session experience with DOP:

“Des made my senior pictures look like everything I had imagined. What started out as a small vision from a Pinterest photo, ended up being the exact vibe of how I wanted my pictures to look. From helping me pick a location and giving suggestions for my outfits, hair, and makeup she did everything possible to achieve my vision. The day of my senior picture was even better than I had hoped with the hair and make up team Des booked and all the fun exciting poses I got to do at Longwood. I truly felt so beautiful and confident! It was an experience I’ll never forget along with pictures I’ll show my family for years!”

Here's is Belle's senior session! Enjoy!
