I have taken a loooong break from blogging…but I’m back, baby! I worked with so many beautiful, intelligent, charismatic, driven college graduates this past spring and didn’t get to share any of their images! April is a busy season with back to back shoots and trying to get images back in time for announcements so it doesn’t leave a ton of time for sharing.
So we’re kicking off the college senior archives with Casey, a 2022 NC State Graduate, majoring in human biology with the goal of becoming an aesthetic injector. She loves makeup, her cat, and she’s a natural in front of the camera (from years of being a competitive dancer, of course!).
I love shooting on NC State’s campus. There are so many iconic locations with different colors and textures. We started in the Court of the Carolinas, where we were able to grab a few photos of Casey with her boyfriend (also an NCSU grad). Then we headed to the bell tower – my favorite location! I’m a sucker for the light stone.
Casey wanted to get a few photos that weren’t so “graduate” focused so we headed downtown to one of my favorite spots for modern views of the city and a little bit of trees. I was thankful for her boyfriend who helped shake the trees to create the dreamy petals falling down around her. What a guy!
These are some of my favorite college senior photos ever so of course I chose to show them first! Casey, I’m so excited to see all that you accomplish in the future, and I’ll definitely be calling you when I’m ready to keep my face young, hehe!
