Well, it’s that time again! Â Spring is one of my favorite times of the year – it’s sunny, warm, the flowers are blooming, and… it’s Graduation Season! Â I remember when I graduated from East Carolina University – I was so full of ideas and ready to show the world what I was capable of, but still so unsure of what I would be doing with “life outside of school”. Â Luckily, things fell into place (as they tend to do) and I am so happy with where life has led me.
One thing is for sure though – With the school year wrapping up, there’s always a fresh batch of seniors getting ready to graduate, and it’s a bittersweet time for me. Â As the ECU Marching Pirates photographer, I grow to love these students year after year, and it’s harder for me every year knowing the sweet faces that are graduating. Â Chances are, with the majority, I won’t ever see these students again except for their occasional appearances at football games down the road or if they pop up on Facebook. Â That goes the same for many of their friends and classmates that won’t get to see much of them anymore, as most students graduate and move away from Greenville. Â Even still, many get jobs right after graduation (or go on their ‘big adventure’) and don’t return “home” to where their family is. Â It is certainly a season of change, and with so much uncertainty, change, romance, adventure, etc, time flies by QUICKLY!
So to help you embrace the change (and help your mother do the same), I love offering Senior Sessions to college students. Â Now, a lot of people think that Senior Sessions or Grad Sessions are just for High Schoolers… Â Not the case! Â Yes, High School is a crazy exciting and important time in your life, but you know what? Â So is college. Â People really change when they go to college – they find themselves, their passion or calling, they make the best friends of their life from all over the country and world (not just the neighbors from down the road), and they’re often making a huge transition not from one school to another (with some increased freedom), but from school to theÂ REAL WORLD. Â It’s a time of lasts – your last time as a carefree student, your last time living with roommates, last time running “Barefoot on the Mall” through campus or playing capture the flag …. for some, it’s one of the last opportunities you have to be silly and maybe a little juvenile, because we all end up growing up with responsibilities after school ends. Â (Okay, now I’m crying!) Â 🙂
So help yourself, your mother, and your friends reminisce on your time at ECU. Â Nearly everyone I know that has been a Pirate is a Pirate for Life. Â I’ve never seen or experienced so much passion and pride for a school, and it’s amazing! Â Put on your Purple and Gold, wear your cap and gown, run around campus with me for a fun-filled and exciting photo session to capture some of your last moments on campus. Â Get your friends together for a “farewell/see you later” session before you part ways. Â These are times you’ll look back on with a happy heart and fond memories. Â Make them last forever!
Time slots are booking up FAST and I want you to have an opportunity to get in on the fun! Â Message me through the contact link here on the site to reserve your spot soon for sessions this Sunday, April 27th!
