This girlie always makes my job easy when she gets in front of the camera! This was my first elementary school grad session, and I must say it was just the stinkin' cutest! It was super fun to channel my inner school kid while helping Mya and her momma capture the memory of this special day. Congrats again, Mya! Your future is bright!
I was SO excited when I was invited last minute to take a trip to the University of Delaware to capture these grad photos for this group of beauties! It is so crazy to me that sessions like this are considered "work" because I have so much fun meeting new friends and exploring new places. Our two hours together flew by and was full of sharing stories and lots of laughs. Congrats to these recent UofD ALUMNI!
I felt like it was just yesterday I was tossing Tori around in stunts and tumbling when she was the youngest kiddo on my cheer team. Here we are 15 years later talking about our career moves during her Graduation Session. It was so fun catching up and meeting one of her sorority sisters last week while they showed me around campus. I'm so proud of this pretty lady and am still in denial that she isn't 12. Congrats Tor!
It was a true honor to photograph Brandon's graduation photos! I got to see The Naval Academy from a new perspective and spend time with two of the most genuine people I know. Graduation Sessions always spark a bit of nostalgia in me. My college years were some of the most special memories that I have in my life. This session felt a bit more full circle considering Brandon will be serving as a United States Marine after graduation. I could relate to where Brandon and Samantha have been and also to what is on the horizon for them as they enter the months ahead. Wishing them both the best of luck and sending all of my prayers! On another note... How adorable are they?!
So I learned a few things last Friday. 1. Georgetown is even more gorgeous than I realized. It feels so regal on their campus and their classrooms are inside buildings that look like gothic cathedrals and churches! 2. Their slogan is "Hoya Saxa!" which translates into "What Rocks!" The name proved popular and the term "Hoyas" was eventually adopted for all Georgetown teams. 3. Their students (at least the ones I met) are down to earth, humble people who are enthusiastic about the past, present and future and I am honored that I got to spend time with them. 4. I realized how badly I REALLLLLLY miss Penn State. Being at Georgetown made me SUPER nostalgic for the hustle and bustle that happens on a college campus on beautiful Spring day. This session was too much fun! Can't wait for more Grad Sessions this year!
