CAP & GOWN SESSION


Senior photos are just not complete until you have a Cap and Gown session. This seems like a no brainer, but to some, it may feel optional or unimportant as the year is coming to a close and you are ready to get to the ceremony. I can tell you with 100% certainty, you should absolutely have one! If you book a senior experience with me, you have 2 collections that include your Cap and Gown Session.

FAQ

what should I wear at my Cap & Gown Session

I talk with my seniors before the shoot about their clothing choices (just like in a regular senior session). We choose clothing that will coordinate with your graduation gown and the location.

SHORT DRESSES always look super cute under your gown and give a fun summer-y feel!

* Make sure not to wear any tops that are puffy or that would make the shape of your gown look a little weird!

COLOR-COORDINATE WITH YOUR CAP + GOWN
Your cap and gown will probably be some version of your school colors, so make sure your outfits don’t clash with that color! I know grad caps aren’t the cutest, but seriously, y’all can always pull them off + make them so cute no matter what color they are!

COLLEGE SHIRTS/DAD HATS TO SHOW WHAT’S NEXT
I LOVE when grads wear college shirts or college dad hats to show what’s next on their journey!!

Can I bring friends to my cap & gown session

There is nothing more important to both high school and college graduates as their friendships. Including friends in several images will make the graduation photos unforgettable.

What should I bring to my cap & gown session

Bring on the confetti!
I love the classic blowing of the confetti for Cap and Gown sessions.
It adds a pop of color and always feels very festive and celebratory.
I love to highlight the tassel and the year of graduation in your school colors. Other ideas for accessories include your Letterman jacket and college gear – a banner is a great idea or school shirt.
No matter what you bring to the Cap and Gown session it will definitely be a celebration of a successful high school career!

WHY do I NEED CAP & GOWN PHOTOS

Grad sessions have easily become some of my fav shoots ever! It’s you + your besties, celebrating these past few years together!! These are the pictures you can hang up in your dorm, or your future home – memories that will last forever with your favorite people!!

Do you take college grad photos ?

IF YOU’RE GRADUATING COLLEGE, BRING SOME BUBBLY (OR SOMETHIN’ A LITTLE HARDER, NO JUDGMENT HERE)
If you wanna have a blast at your college grad session, bring along your fave drink (alcoholic or not)!! Whether that’s a bottle of champagne, some tequila shots (my personal fav), or sparkling cider to shake + spray everywhere, let’s partyyyyy!

Can I bring Props to my cap and gown session?

INCLUDE ANY PROPS THAT ARE MEANINGFUL TO YOU + YOUR SCHOOL JOURNEY
You can bring along any props that would make your photos more meaningful!! Maybe that means your dog, the instrument you play, a uniform, a stethoscope, anything to represent your school journey or the future ahead.
