Congratulations on your graduation! Invite your family and friends to celebrate this occasion with individual and group portraits on campus or at the location of your choice.

Graduation Session Details

WHAT’S INCLUDED & WHAT TO EXPECT

This photo session includes 1 hour of photography coverage, which can be extended in half hour increments if you’d like. There’s not limit to locations or outfit changes. Yes you can invite friends & family if you’d like and we can do individual and/or group photos with everyone. Because graduation week is very busy and I may be shooting multiple session per day, on average the photos will be ready in approximately 10 business days. High resolution photos are delivered via private gallery and are backed up online. Feel free to share the link and use the photos for any personal use!

04. Do you edit the photos?2021-05-25T16:55:19-04:00

05. What do I get from the session?2021-05-25T22:35:44-04:00

For every shoot, I provide the high resolution digital files via Dropbox, Google Drive, or Amazon Drive where they will be backed up in the cloud. If you can, please make a backup of the files when you receive them. Of course I also keep physical backups on my hard drives in case something happens. The files come without watermarks, symbols, or copyright text and are available to you for printing, posting on social media, or use for any personal project.

06. What are some good locations on ND campus?2021-05-27T04:00:07-04:00

There are some great locations on God quad. For example we could start by the Jesus statue. From that vantage point we’ll get a beautiful dome in the background. There are benches nearby that work great as well. Touchdown Jesus and the stadium are also popular spots as well as in front of the dorms. Another possibility is the Grotto area and the lakes.

Yes, in case of bad weather, we can reschedule our session date not a problem!
