unc chapel hill graduation photographer – lauren’s portraits

Portraiture

Last week, I headed over to UNC in Chapel Hill to shoot some UNC Chapel Hill graduation photographer portraits for Lauren, who has just graduated with a degree in Business and Dramatic Art. We started off at the Old Well where we took some traditional graduation portraits, before heading for a walk around campus looking for interesting light and areas to shoot some more experimental/dramatic stuff. Here are just a few of my faves from the shoot.

trisha, chris & the boys
It's been a really hectic few weeks for me between one thing and another, so I was really looking forward to meeting up with Trisha and her family for a shoot at the IMA. Trisha and I used to work together when I lived in Cincinnati, and it was great to see her and her husband Chris again after almost 4 years. They drove in from Dayton, OH that morning bringing their two fun boys, Quinn and Liam, with them. We went for a wander around and got some really nice pics. Here is the pick of the crop.
