On the day before winter graduation, I had the pleasure of photographing Bridget's graduation session at NC State University. Bridget is graduating with her bachelor's degree in psychology and plans to move back home to the Charlotte area after graduation. While figuring out what she wants to do next, she is going to substitute teach at the school she attended as a student.

As we walked around campus, it was clear that the school was bustling with activity, as many students also had graduation ceremonies on that day. Despite the crowds, we were able to find some beautiful locations for Bridget's photos. We started at the Memorial Belltower, which is a popular spot for graduation photos. From there, we moved on to the entrance of the oldest building on campus, which added a historic touch to the shots. Finally, we ended up in a pretty courtyard, surrounded by greenery and flowers.

Bridget's parents accompanied us at the session, adding to the celebratory atmosphere. It was a beautiful day to capture these special memories, and I'm so happy for Bridget!

Congratulations to Bridget on her achievement and best of luck as she begins this new chapter in her life! Shared below are some of my favorite photos from Bridget's graduation photos at NCSU with the Class of 2022.
