I Want To Tune In!

This was my favorite portrait session from my last week in Charlottesville. Naro & Shreya asked me to take their graduation portraits on the day of since their photographer couldn’t make it after Shreya had gotten her hair done. I’m glad that I had time to take their pictures and we actually got the best lighting as well! These two are so much fun to be around and we were laughing throughout the entire time. 

They’re so easy going & comfortable around each other πŸ™‚

We also took a bunch of individual portraits with grad caps, gowns and all. You can’t leave UVA without a couple of column pictures to remind you of the Lawn.

I love that the Rotunda is coming back to life in the background of all of these!

These ones above in the alley are definitely my favorite!

We ended around dusk in a garden I’d never been in before. 

Naro & Shreya, thank you for letting me take your portraits. I hope you enjoyed your pictures and I’m glad you were able to get them taken on the day you had originally intended. Good luck to you both as you continue doing big things in the real world!
