Graduation Photos

November 23, 2010

I’m spending tonight getting my graduation photos done! They should be back after Thanksgiving break, so I’ll share them when I get back.

Fall and Winter are my two favorite seasons. I actually despise summer. I never like summer. I never have liked summer. I likely never will like summer. One of the weird things about living in Texas is that, unlike Chicago’s 8 months of fall-ish winter, Texas has 8 months of summer-ish weather.

I’m not getting “graduation portraits” necessarily. Just photos..because I’m graduating. I have never had photos taken of myself, by myself, ever. It’s gonna be weird…

Anyways, I have been gathering inspiration all week. These are my three favorites.

Completely tri-polar opposites, I’m aware.

Our lovely photographer, Kristiane, is taking them, and I’m really excited about this. Wish me luck!

    I’m a winter girl too. I feel that everything is right with the world when there’s 15 feet of snow in my backyard and it’s snowing yet again. Can’t wait to see your non-graduation graduation pics. Love the first one. If you’re not so outdoorsy, I wouldn’t recommend the third one. And as an ex-smoker, I will withhold my thoughts on the second one, LOL 😉 XOXO

      Oh for sure, winter is where it’s at! Thanks so much, Christie! I’m pumped to get them done..Kristiane is an excellent photographer! Haha…as a current girl-who-delightfully-enjoys-cigarettes, I love the second one, but I’ll try quitting again soon. 🙂

    What a good idea! You are gonna look so rawking in your grad photos, and I’m loving these inspiration portraits. 🙂

    I like the changes in all seasons but get a little bored of each after a while so always ready for a change!

    I’m excited for you and to see them!!
    (I’m a major summer girl, but I love fall and spring too. Can barely stand winter…but it’s ok, I still like you!)

    I effing hate the summer. I’m convinced that my skin is made out of something different than everyone else’s skin, because once it’s over 75 degrees I can’t breathe, I can’t think, and I am one crabby bitch. Hence the winter wedding, cold-weather honeymoon. It’s the only way I could make it through alive!

    I like the first pic.

      Yay, I’ll keep that in mind, the first one is my favorite. For sure, me too. The heat makes me run to my car and yell, “DON’T TALK TO ME!” until the air-conditioning starts running. yikes.

    I love that you’re getting photos done! Good for you and congrats, of course. You’ll look stunning in them, I’m sure. Can’t wait to see!
