Collin’s mom reached out to me during the summer before his final year at Harvard. She told me about the horror story of her other son’s graduation photos as organized by the university itself and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to capture keepsake images of her last child during his final year at Harvard. I am so incredibly fortunate that she immediately fell in love with my work and knew I could do a great job capturing her son with the gorgeous campus as the background. Congrats to the soon-to-be Harvard grad.
Most of our images took place on the Harvard Bridge, also known as Mass Ave Bridge. We woke up before dawn and beat the sun as it rose over the Charles River. Collin was such a sport meeting me that early in the morning, but since he was a track athlete, he was used to early morning practices and hours. We then moved to his dorm quad to capture a few final images, including an image to use for his LinkedIn profile. His brother popped in for a few images because coincidentally he was in town for a wedding. My style is always to just capture people as they are. That’s why you get the most genuine expressions and reactions anyway.
Congratulations to this handsome and smart young man. I’m so excited to be seeing them again in a couple of weeks as his family flies in from the West Coast to attend his graduation. I can’t wait to share those images once they’re done as well.
Congratulations Collin on your upcoming graduation from Harvard.
