Melissa Waller Photography – Fredericksburg VA Senior Photographer » Weddings, High School Seniors & Families

I recently had the opportunity to work with a local boutique in downtown Fredericksburg and I am so excited at how the images turned out. Peacaloo Boutique chose 4 models to work with us and model their current clothing line. We had an amazing time and I am honored to be working with such a force in the fashion industry as Stefany Clare. An amazing business woman and seamstress, she runs Peacaloo Boutique and also makes her own clothing to sell. She is a force to be reckoned with!

Stefany hails from Fredericksburg, VA and after college, moved away to work in the fashion industry. Stefany is a major talent and also loves to work with and give back to amazing organizations. Read her BIO from the Peacaloo Boutique [below]. Link here

Training in fashion, modeling, runway and commercial in New York City she soon decided to branch out, Stefany introduced her custom-made dresses in the fall of 2011 by innovatively developing a fashion show, runway auction raising generous funds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Furthering her professional career, moving to Los Angeles, California, Stefany graduated from School of Style, Smashbox Studios in Los Angeles and immediately began working as a fashion intern with Luke Storey and Lauren Messiah. As an independent consultant, Stefany worked with Dominic from Australia on an international video and photo shoot representing LA fashion styles. It was not long before the fast-rising, young fashion Hollywood artist began working under Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, two of the most sought after celebrity stylist in Hollywood. Clients included Rachel McAdams, No Doubt, Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez. Stefany soon transitioned to working as a stylist assistant for celebrities Victoria Justice and Taylor Swift.

Meet Emily! A few weeks ago, I was on Instagram and I saw Emily’s feed with this amazingly gorgeous dress and I thought – OMG! I have to reach out to her and see if she would be interested in doing a shoot with her prom dress. When Emily wrote back and said “HECK YA”, I was so excited! To top things off, Emily has a beautiful horse and I suggested that we use him in some of her photos, and I am so glad we did. Emily lives on a beautiful piece of property and we were able to use the fields beside her house for these gorgeous images. Emily, you rocked your session and I am super excited to show them off.

I love repeat clients! I did Kellie’s senior photos 2 years ago and she recently came back to me to get some headshots for her upcoming modeling interview with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. I was so excited when she asked me to do this for her. I recently decided to stop doing weddings and focus my energy on High School Seniors, but I love Kellie and she is so fierce that I couldn’t imagine not doing these photos for her.

Check her out! Isn’t she gorgeous!

Oh Sweet Kali girl! I first met Kali a few years ago when I moved to Fredericksburg. I put out a model call on Facebook to get my name out in the community and Kali and her friends Caroline and Lizzy’s Moms answered the Model Call. I had a blast at their session and Kali has been the ultimate loyal client ever since. She was the second person to apply for our 2015 Senior Rep call and I was so excited to photograph her again. Thank you Kali for being so sweet, I love you and your Mom! Your photos are some of my favorites ever! God has given you an amazing gift of a beautiful voice and I can’t wait to see where it takes you. Your version of Kups is amazing and I love listening to you sing. You better try out for Grease next year!:)xoxoxo
