Hello! These are a few more photos from my shoot on Tuesday with Nicholas Von Thrower. Again, the photos turned out incredible and I am extremely grateful that he wanted to take them. Nicholas is definitely an up-and-coming Richmond photographer to watch out for. 

We shot the photos along the river at Texas Beach. Whenever I go to the river here in Richmond, I tend to either go to Belle Isle or Pony Pasture. Before Tuesday, I had actually never been to Texas Beach. But the second we started walking on the Texas Beach trail to the river, I instantly fell for Texas Beach. It is incredibly gorgeous and a lot quieter/calmer than Belle Isle. This will definitely be the spot that I head for on my next river excursion. 

For the photos, I slipped on my black one-piece. I'm usually more of a bikini girl but the low back and plunging neckline of this swimsuit are too flattering to resist. Of course, I love the simple black color and basic style. This swimsuit has actually been in rotation for several summers now but I love it too much to give it up. Luckily, I haven't outgrown it!

I styled the swimsuit with a black circle skirt for a cute, retro look. Tortoiseshell round sunglasses and a pile of rings completed the simple, river look. 

A big thanks to Nicholas Von Thrower for taking these photos! Be sure to check him out on Instagram @fireballwhiskeyprince

Hello! These are some photos from my shoot yesterday with Nicholas Von Thrower. When Nicholas contacted me via Instagram to see if I wanted to shoot some photos with him, I was totally in. Nicholas is a Richmond photographer and is majoing in photography. Once he gets out of school, he hopes to do editorial photoshoots. And oh my gosh, his photos are absolutely incredible.  Teaming up with him for a photoshoot was the best. And I love how the photos turned out! Be sure to follow and check out his instagram @fireballwhiskeyprince to see more of his photos. 

We shot the first look at Maymont. I decided to go for a bohemian look nostalgic of the 60s/70s with this vivid printed dress, tan flatforms and green round sunglasses.

Hello! Hot summer days like today require breezy summer dresses like this daisy print, babydoll dress. I kept my look relatively simple by adding a cotton tote bag, classic tortoiseshell watch, round sunglasses and black studded sandals. Do you guys have a go-to outfit for hot summer days like today?

As a side note, make sure you follow me on instagram @ToriRadday for a closer glimpse at my life. I post more personal photos on my instagram and today, I posted an adorable one of my little Yorkie posing with me.
