UGA Graduation Photos | Lauren’s Classic UGA Graduate Session
I was so excited to work with Lauren and capture her UGA graduation photos! She was a bit shy and reserved at first, but full of so much joy. She’s a Fashion Major in Marketing, and you could tell because she was absolutely rocking her outfit! I loved being able to capture her in her favorite locations and get some of the images that she really wanted.
Photos Lauren actually had previous UGA graduation photos earlier in the year, and while she absolutely loved the images, she just wanted some different scenery since north campus was now in full bloom.
Erected in 1857, the arch is now a place of tradition, and superstition. Every year, recent graduates line up to pass under the arch for the first time. Students refrain from walking under it for years until they graduate. Then, they all do so as a class! The superstition goes that if you pass under the arch before you graduate, you never will. And, unfortunately, my brother has some personal experience with this superstition – having to return to college much later in life to graduate. So, while I’m not superstitious myself, I have seen evidence of that very same thing happening within my own family!
There’s usually a huge line at the arch, all the students waiting for photographers to take their senior photos there. When Lauren and I took her traditional UGA graduation photos, thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long. She was awesome and totally killed it! During this session she also wanted to get lots of greenery and any flowers in bloom from around campus, so I made sure to get lots of floral shots for her!
Lauren, I’m so happy that I got to serve you this way! I wish you the best and lots of happiness and adventure in your future – wherever that takes you!
Congratulations and thank you! Xo, Jess
