MBA Graduation Portraits | Natasha
College graduation portraits are definitely increasing in demand. This is not something that people did when I was in college. And now I sound like an old person, “back in my day, we had to walk uphill in snow both ways” yada yada. But I actually really love this; I think its important to celebrate all life’s milestones. Most people get their senior portraits done at 17/18 and the next time they have professional portraits is when they get married.
So when Natasha reached out to me and said she wanted photos done I was so excited! Celebrating her MBA was a huge accomplishment and deserved something special. So we had this glorious plan to shoot on the Texas Women’s University campus in Denton (where she was graduating from), but there was a hiccup. She was delayed in Grapevine with hair and makeup, which we did not want to cut short. So we made an impromptu decision to shoot in downtown grapevine instead. I think it complimented her outfits perfectly. We had a blast!
Can I just say, I am loving cap and gown shots. When I think about traditional cap and gown, its so boring. But I have had a couple girls bring them this year and I think its a fun, more laid back look and unique. It symbolized the accomplishment without being a boring studio portrait.
I’ve fallen in love with shooting in a downtown, urban area. I love all the colors and textures, it doesn’t have to be much, just a simple painted wall, or the steps to building, but it adds to much interest to these portraits. I love them! When we were shooting, Natasha mentioned that she tried modeling for a bit but it wasn’t for her, um…I beg to differ. She was such a natural in front of the camera, and posed with ease. I wish all my clients were so easy to work with!
Until next time!
