Jane, I hope you had a great time taking pictures and that you decided to get them taken for graduation! You’re officially #UVAGrad after walking the Lawn this weekend which is so incredibly exciting! I can’t wait to see what you do in the future and I hope you come back to visit 🙂

I met Jane through A.O.E. and she is honestly so warm, welcoming, and always smiling! We took her portraits around the Lawn as well as near West Range which was new for me and lots of fun! I loved incorporating her graduation stoles in the shoot as well. This girl is such a natural in front of the camera and I’m so happy with how all of these turned out!

Look at that laugh, it’s the cutest 🙂

Yay for a great grad cap toss!! And the ones with the stole have to be some of my favorite!

 I was so honored that Grace came to me for portraits and I was even happier when her friend and roommate Brianna was able to join. It’s easy to tell how well these two girls get along!

Last year I decided to rush an engineering sorority called A.O.E. here at UVA. Those who know me were pretty surprised about my decision since I don’t exactly fit your stereotype of a sorority girl. However, the reason I followed through with rush continues to be the reason why I love A.O.E. today and that’s due to the fact that I got to meet and connect with some pretty amazing girls who were able to share my triumphs and struggles of being a female engineer at UVA. Grace is one of those girls that handles everything from her academics to extracurricular  activities, well with a certain kind of grace that’s hard to describe.

 I was so honored that she came to me for portraits and I was even happier when her friend and roommate Brianna was able to join. It’s easy to tell how well these two girls get along. I loved how well these two’s outfits matched each others!

The lighting at the McIntire patio was perfect!

These two know how to have fun and I’m so glad they were down to play around in the leaves despite the students walking by right behind me. We also made sure to get the Rotunda in the back of their pictures despite its current scaffolded state. 

Thanks for asking me to take these! I hope you two have a fantastic rest of your fourth year and that these pictures capture the spirit of your last year here at UVA!

A couple of weekends ago I went on a small fall retreat with my sorority around Charlottesville. The beginning of the day was us running around trying to cross off as many items on the scavenger hunt as we could. We ended the crazy hunt with a fancy tea at Boar’s Head Inn and lots of pictures around the surrounding property. Unfortunately my card went bad after using it several times over the weekend and I lost some of the pictures but I wanted to put at least some of them up!

We were able to get into the dorm I lived in first year & I got to see my old room!
