I have actually been doing a lot of graduation photos as of late and I am looking forward to more in the coming weeks. For this session I actually had two graduates to photograph and both were family, which made it extra special. Sophie is graduating Grade 8 and Albany is graduation high school and off to McMaster next year, which is super exciting. Their parents also joined us for the session so it was also a bit of a family session as well, which was perfect.
We started in on Cooke Street where all the beautiful graffiti walls are painted. I figured it would be a nice backdrop for the first portion of the session. Plus there is the street there as well, which isn’t busy at night and it gives off a nice urban vibe. After spending about 30 minutes there we went for an opposite feel and headed down to the Marina. Walking down the trail and stopping here and there made for a very casual and relaxed shoot.
It was an hour session but it went by so fast. I was glad I could help capture such an important time in both Sophie and Albany’s life. Hopefully they will be able to look back on these photos fondly!
