Spring time has a lot of things happening, but, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, one of the main things is graduation at The University of Alabama. At the beginning of May, students receive their diplomas and embark on the next chapter in their lives.

Before that happens, though, lots of students like to have a portrait session done on campus as somewhat of a final reminder of their time at The University of Alabama. It really is a perfect time as the campus is already experiencing the full benefits of spring. Everything is lush and green and beautiful.

I recently had the pleasure of doing two graduation portrait sessions on campus during the span of one week in mid-April. The upcoming graduates were Jessica and Sylvia, both excellent students who are planning on continuing their education in graduate school.

As with most graduation sessions, we went around campus to places that meant a lot to them during their time as students. We shot in front of academic buildings, such as ones making up the Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration along with the College of Arts and Sciences. We also found time to shoot in front of such campus landmarks as Gorgas Library, The Gorgas House, Denny Chimes, Bryant-Denny Stadium, and The President's Mansion.

Both sessions were a lot of fun to do, and I was grateful that both Jessica and Sylvia used me to capture some of their last memories on the campus of The University of Alabama. I must say it was even a bit nostalgic walking around campus and reliving some of my memories from when I was a student at the school.

I wish Jessica and Sylvia the best in graduate school and beyond. I also want to thank them for having me photograph their graduation portrait sessions. If you or someone you know is in need of graduation portraits, remember to visit my portrait photography investment section for information on how to book a session. You can also contact me, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
