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!
