These two should look familiar! I was soo happy when Grace & Brianna asked if I would take their second round of senior pictures with their caps and gowns this time! We met up last Friday and got some pictures around the Gardens as well as on the Lawn once again and got lots of portraits with and without their caps and gowns. I hope that you guys find a picture or two that you can use for your graduation invitations. Enjoy your last couple of days here at UVA, wearing the Honors of Honor on Graduation Day and your graduation party back home in Virginia Beach!

Their favorite pictures from last time were the Lawn chair ones so we went back to the same room to borrow the set of Lawn chairs that faced each other. Last time I joked that I was always worried the resident of Room #33 would walk out while we were taking pictures and this time he actually did but didn’t pay us any mind! Lawn room duties I suppose.

This is still as adorable as the first time πŸ™‚

They took a similar picture at their high school graduation so it was cool to recreate this for them four years later as they graduate from here!

Thank you guys again, I had so much fun hanging out with you again this semester. I wish you guys the very best with your future and I hope that whenever you return home to UVA you’ll stop and say hi!
