Wesleyan University | Class of 2019

May 26, 2019

This portrait session at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut was nothing short of a blast. These girls were all so sweet, fun and funny! This opportunity came at a great time -- I was just thinking how much I wanted to add senior portraiture to my business and the following week my inbox had this very inquiry (thank universe!). One of the girls' sister got in touch and gifted this for her and 7 other friends.

Campus is just a jump from my house and so I met them in the late afternoon -- we went from Olin Library to North College, the Admissions building and the soccer field. Each spot holding a memory. One of my favorite things was when the University President came upon us and hopped in for some shots! The plans post-grad were to start their jobs (which they all have) from Los Angeles, New York and Boston. As a former Wes employee, I really reveled in the opportunity to work with students again and hearing their goals and realizing their dreams.

What a great beginning....
Thank you girls for this amazing time! Enjoy the next adventure!

All Smiles,
