I admit, I don’t shoot many grad sessions, but it’s always a treat when I do! I’m constantly surprised at the level of my own emotions when I photograph them — nervous to photograph just one person (it’s different than when there are two people!), excitement at seeing my old campus in new ways, nostalgic for all the years I spent learning, and happy to meet someone new and amazing!

      Christy is a government major and has the most beautiful blue eyes I’ve ever seen.

      Pretty girl, I love the shots in the vintage store, very cool!

      What a beautiful smile she has :-) My fave is the one of her outside by the colourful wall. Gorgeous.

      Love it, the green wall is awesome!

      As a fellow grad session shooter.. I have to give you mad props, Elissa! These look great. Wonderful job.

      So cute, and what a great smile! Love the shots of her leaning against the wall and the one with all the books!

      candy galore?!!! I NEED TO GO! LOL
      Fun pics, lots of variety

      great grad session, awesome use of her environment. Its really cool that you went to school there as well, and she really does have beautiful blue eyes!

      I love how you were creatively framing her. She’s so pretty, especially in that second frame :)

      She’s gorgeous! Lovely work. :]

      These are lovely & you did a great job with just one subject! (It is SO different). And of course I love her name! :-)

      She does have beautiful blue eyes! Love Chocolate Galore!!

      Great session Elissa. Love that shot in front of the theatre!
