the (almost) college graduate


jessica chronicled graduation


This past weekend I was thrilled to death that my friend Mackenzie offered to take some graduation pictures for me. I know what you're thinking. "OH, good, you found your cap and gown!" Well, no, I borrowed the one in this picture but as of Monday night, my cap and gown have been found and all is right with the world. This session was so much fun regardless of my frantic morning searching for my own cap and gown. Mackenzie is really great at coming up with creative ideas and she took me over to the art building where she has had some classes. I have to admit I was pretty jealous. That building is complete rustic goodness. I took a few photos of Mackenzie too, but I could have shot photos near that building for hours there were so many good colors and textures.  The best part of this session was all the jumping and excited faces, it was a lot of fun thinking about how I would feel when I'm officially done (in a week and a half! woot! woot!)
