I Want To Tune In!

After rescheduling within such a rainy week, we finally got to take these five girls graduation portraits on the Lawn! It was an overcast day but that didn’t stop them all from having a fun time! We met up near Old Cabell and started out with individual column portraits here since the Rotunda is making its way back to us but isn’t quite ready to grace us with its new columns.

We then took some super fun group shots near Old Cabell as well as in the Lawn chairs! I went back to my favorite Lawn Room #31  (sorry dude!) and we were able to grab four nearby chairs so that they five of them could all sit together! I have to say my favorite ones are where they hoisted their hands up for a hooray! 

These are some of my new favorite group shots!

The lighting near the Lawn chairs was actually perfect!

Loved the funny face ones in between on the steps of the Pavilion 🙂

We made use of the Rotunda as a fantastic backdrop (thank goodness it’s almost done with renovations!!) We also made our way to the Amphitheater which is such a popular spot on Grounds that I’ve actually never taken photos at before. It was fun switching up the scene!

We ended with some good old group portraits right before it started to drizzle! Thank you guys all for being so patient and fun!! I loved taking your individual and group portraits and hope that you guy stay a tight knit group of friends post graduation! Congrats on graduating and the best of luck in the future!
