Hats off to 2020 Shippensburg University graduates Louis, Cameron & Alex…
Louis (center) reached out to me about photographing him and his roommates, Alex & Cameron to commemorate this special time and make it feel real for them, since Covid-19 had prevented them from having the graduation ceremony that they had anticipated.
Louis said, “I could tell right away that you would be the right photographer for us. Your pictures feel alive and I could tell you take time to work with your clients and help them to be comfortable in front of the camera.”
Individual Headshots of each graduate:
They wanted a nice headshot of each of the roommates…
Candid photos of a few celebratory moments:
To capture them popping a bottle of celebratory champagne…
To show a few of the historic buildings on Shippensburg University’s campus more subtly in the background…
A little nostalgia…
Louis shared, “We all met during orientation, we are so different but just clicked, like they say opposites attract.”
He continued, “My favorite memories with them mostly involve food, haha. There was a good amount of late night pizza and a time that we all went out to a restaurant together and I forgot my wallet! I was embarrassed, but Alex stepped up and said, ‘Don’t worry, I got you.'”
Haha, we have a little literal stepping up happening here… a fun pic in front of the dining hall…
When I asked about locations, Louis said, “Meeting at Old Main is perfect– that fountain is magnificent! It is my favorite part of our campus.”
Louis continued, “Now that I’ve graduated, I have plans to attend graduate school and eventually start a career in the health field.”
Favorite places on campus:
They laughed, “We need to include the big red chair, it’s a Ship classic!”
Louis explained, “At the end of the day, I’d like for our photography session to be relaxed, fun and nostalgic.”
I hope these photographs hit all of those markers for you!
Thanks for reaching out to me, it was a pleasure to work with the three of you, and I wish you all the very best with all of your future scientific endeavors 🙂
