I’m excited to finally share these GW graduation photos with you! Hannah, Jasmine, and Victoria graduated from The George Washington University this spring. To celebrate we captured GW University graduation photos for them on Capitol Hill.
Virtually Not the Same
Like many seniors in the class of 2020, these three ladies didn’t get the opportunity to experience their commencement ceremony in person. GW hosted their graduation virtually, which just isn’t the same. I’m glad we were able to schedule this session with them as a way to celebrate their big accomplishment.
Have Music, Have Fun
These ladies made their GW graduation photos session so much fun! For them and for me! I encouraged them to cheer each other on as they got their individual photos taken – and that they did! It was so heartwarming to hear them support each other. Not only that, but they played a little music at different times throughout the session. That gave things even more of a celebratory vibe! I felt like I was at a wedding reception, not a graduation session! haha
Champagne in the Dark
As usually happens when I’m having fun, time got a little bit away from me. I knew the ladies wanted to end the session with a champagne spray, but before we knew it, the sun had set. I feel like it’s times like those, when we’re forced to be creative, that magic happens! I popped on my flash and took their champagne spray photos in the dark, just using my flash and ambient light – and I love how they turned out!
Congratulations on your graduation to Hannah, Victoria, and Jasmine!
