Senior Inspiration – {Nicole Spangler Photography}

The holidays may be approaching but that doesn’t mean you can’t be inspired and start planning a fun spring or summer shoot for your models.

Baseball or other sporting events are a great idea to incorporate into a senior photo shoot for your senior models!
