Meet Jess


Andrew’s UGA senior portraits were so much fun to capture! I loved this session so much, because it was full of firsts and even a surprise that we were able to compensate for and still have an amazing time. 

Andrew is a senior at UGA and he’s following in his family’s footsteps, graduating in residential property management. He’s a first generation graduate and he has several hobbies that I could speak about. But when I learned that he was an aspiring photographer, my heart just soared! I loved being able to engage with him on a personal level about something we both cared about. 

An Exception to the Rules

The day we were taking photos was something special. As a rule, I don’t shoot on Sundays. But for Andrew and his family, I decided to make an exception. His girlfriend and their dog came with him to the shoot. I was so excited to meet her and their furry-family-member! They wanted some photos together and I was happy to oblige. 

We started on the campus at UGA, and we busied ourselves taking photos here and there, capturing important memories and memorable moments from his time at college. It was a beautiful early April day. And, since it was a Sunday, the campus was a lot less full than I was used to! This made Andrew’s UGA senior portraits a bit easier to capture! 

A Sunday Surprise

But, something that we didn’t plan for was the campus itself. When it came time to change outfits I was used to sending my clients into any bathroom they wanted to swap clothes. Since it was a Sunday, and I had never been there on a Sunday before, everything was locked! No matter which bathroom we tried, there wasn’t any option available! 

However, we didn’t let this deter us! We were both determined to get the photos he wanted, and that’s exactly what we did! 

Andrew, I had such a fun time taking your senior portraits at UGA! I can’t wait to see where the future takes you and I’m looking forward to seeing you and your girlfriend again! 

Congratulations and thank you, again!  Xo, Jess
