Class of 2014 | I’m a Graduate!


Let me start this post by apologizing for the lack of blogging and posting on FB these past few days! The last two weeks have been super hectic with family in town and my graduation yesterday!! I promise that once everything settles down, my blog will be back to normal 🙂

On another note, I GRADUTED!!! WOOOOOHOOO! I’ve been looking forward to this day for so long and it was SO much fun! Graduation was in the middle of the afternoon and we headed out a little early to snap some pictures (of course!) and then spent the evening with family and friends. We weren’t planning on hosting anything at my house, we were actually planning on going out to a fancy dinner at Bravo! But, last week, we decided to have a spur-of-the-moment cookout and it was the best decision we ever made! My family, close friends and neighbors all came over for some cornhole, Kan Jam and some delicious food! (Let me tell you…we had A LOT of food!)

My graduation kick-started an incredible month! I’ll be shooting two weddings, attending Jasmine Star’s workshop, turning 18, traveling to NYC AND going to my college orientation at Radford all within the next 22 days!! AHHH! Can’t wait for an amazing month to come!

Enjoy some photos from my big day below!!
