Rockin’ the Cap and Gown

Lately, I’ve been taking a lot of pictures of College Seniors rockin’ the cap and gown. It’s that time of year and almost everyone I know is preparing for graduation. I am so excited to see what they all do with the rest of their lives.

It’s challenging at the same time. Let’s be honest, cap and gowns are exactly the most stylish clothing ever. Plus, it’s hard to take several photo shoots in the same locations while still keeping them creative. But I’ve been doing my very best to get them all unique and a little funky in their own ways. What do you think?

Now, a question for all you college graduates: Did you get Senior pictures done when you were finishing University? I’m way interested in knowing…
