I’m so excited to share these cuties on the blog! This was my first time stepping onto the U of R campus for a photoshoot, so the location was new to me. These five pretty ladies took me around campus to get some shots all together and also separately. We had so much fun capturing their close friendships and celebrating their graduation that was coming up. I knew it was going to be a good time as soon as I met them! Of course they wanted to include some champagne shots at this particular spot by the water. It ended with a big surprise and a LOT of laughing! We saved the champagne popping for the last part of the shoot just in case they were to get sprayed- thank God we did because WOW, I’ve never experienced a champagne spray quite like this one! During their champagne pictures, I was mistakenly sprayed right in the face and I was pretty much drenched in champagne and sweat- yep, I smelled great… I literally had to wipe down my lens in order to finish those shots and we couldn’t stop laughing! It was hilarious and shocking all at the same time. Out of all the champagne popping pictures I’ve done, this was one thing that hadn’t happened yet. Now I can say I have full experience in the champagne popping department and I’m okay with it! 🙂 Congratulations to these beauties!
I have been wanting to book a VCU graduation session since moving back to Richmond, and it finally happened! I was so excited when Stacy and Shinal reached out to me for their Spring graduation session! Friend shoots are always so much fun, especially when they are bffs and roommates like these two! But my favorite part? The caps. Stacy’s cap read, “in the waves of change, we find our true direction.” Shinal’s cap said, “dream while you’re wide awake”. If these quotes aren’t inspiring, I don’t know what is! I loved that I was able to feel a connection to these quotes in my own way as there is so much meaning behind those words. These two women are going to make a difference in whatever direction they choose in life, and they will empower other women to do the same. It was clear to see that, even in the short 2 hours we had together.
Congratulations to Stacy and Shinal on this major accomplishment and best wishes on your next big journey!!! I know you’re going to do amazing things!
