Why You Should Capture the Graduates | Oneonta NY Portrait Photographer

Graduating, whether from high school, college, or a graduate program, deserves documenting! You’ve put so much time, energy, and hard work in, lets capture the end with some amazing photos! Here’s a recent session with graduates from Hartwick College, and my five top reasons why you should capture your graduation time.

Reason #1: remember those friendships

You’ve just spent memorable years with friends who will help shape you. Include them in your graduation portraits so you will always remember this special time together. It’s really like a big family session because they have become your family away from home.

Reason #2: It’s time to celebrate!

You deserve to have some fun, and thats just what we’ll capture during your graduation photos! I’m all about connection no matter who’s in front of my lens. I’ll get you laughing, dancing and truly making your session memorable.

Reason #3: Your parents want those photos too

Including your parents in your graduation photos is so important! They’ve been your biggest cheerleaders and supporters along your journey. Lets capture their pride, joy and love for YOU!

Reason #4: Capture just you

I’ll be sure to get some fun shots of just you too-probably to send to grandma, or maybe to have hung on those walls. Wearing your cap and gown will make you feel confident and remind you of your amazing accomplishment. Including unique items to your program, like a stethoscope or honors scarf, are really fun to include in your session too.

Reason #5: You only live once

Looking back on my own college years, it seems like another life time ago. I have a couple images of my graduation day to remember that time by, but had we had graduation photos done by a professional photographer, I would have even more memories to look back on! I promise you won’t regret a graduation session, and it can take place when ever you want. It will give you a chance to capture where you’ve spent the last four years and is a special way to commemorate this time with. I’d be honored to capture it for you.
