destination graduation, monica

Meet Monica.

Monica will graduate in December from UNT and wanted some graduation photos to commemorate. When she first e-mailed me she let me know she didn’t want a typical graduation shoot — she wanted a ‘leaving-town’ shoot “with a little bit of fashion thrown in.” Monica, you are a girl after my own heart.

Here are some of the shots from our session.

Now, Monica also forewarned me not to expect a model. The day of the shoot she e-mailed me saying she was a little nervous but I told her she’d be fine. I figured she’d just need a little coaching — not a big deal.

After photographing you, Monica, I just have one thing to say to you: “What.ever.”

This girl was one of the most natural model I have ever had the pleasure of shooting — and I’ve shot some mod.els. before, so that’s no small feat.

Mmhm. Not a model my foot. Is Monica even your real name?!? I’m not sure WHAT to believe from your mouth!

A little ways into the shoot Monica tells me she loves shoes. No. Like, she REALLY loves shoes. This little black number happens to be her fav.

So, remember when I mentioned that Monica loves shoes? Well, she brought  some extras with her to the shoot . . .

. . . seven pairs of extras, to be exact – looooooooove it.

Monica, you are beautiful.

At the risk of stating the obvious, here’s where the leaving town comes in — vintage suitcases Monica brought along to the shoot!

Gosh,  can we just talk about how easy Monica was to shoot and work with? Ok, thanks.

As is typical in the course of a day, the light turned to night. But Monica had one more outfit she wanted to use so we decided to keep shooting to see what we could come up with.

Why hellooooo, parking garage.

Happy upcoming graduation, Monica! I wish you nothing but the best.
