High school graduation is one of my very favourite milestones to document. The excitement, the glamour, the proud parents. It's all magic! So you can imagine how giddy I was when Jennifer asked me to photograph her daughter Lizzy's graduation. I'd previously photographed her elder daughter Avery's graduation party last summer, so I was really happy to spend more time with one of my favourite families and mark this occasion for them with portraits.
Lizzy came to my studio to be glammed up by the lovely Melenie Montgomery, as her and her mom and sister snacked on treats from Duchess Bakeshop and sipped champagne. Her dad and sweet boyfriend joined in and we started with some portraits in my studio. Then we travelled to the Legislature grounds, where hundreds of other grads were gathered to celebrate with their friends and, well, take pictures.
The positive energy was contagious. I was honoured to be there. Congratulations, Lizzy! I'm so excited for you.
