Lindsey | OU College Graduation Portraits | NE Oklahoma Photographer

Want to know something fun about Lindsey? Our families have exchanged Christmas cards for years before I ever met her for her college graduation portraits this past weekend! Lindsey’s mom (who joined us for her shoot!) knew my mom through National Charity League years ago when my whole family was living in Plano! With Lindsey being several years younger than me, I don’t think we ever had any crossover, but I am so thankful to have the chance to finally meet her and help celebrate her senior year! We received her family’s holiday card not too long before she booked with me last semester, and it was such a treat to be able to put a face to a name right away when her email came through!

Lindsey is graduating with a degree in Health and Exercise Sciences and plans to take a year off before applying to PA school! She spent a lot of her time in college with her best friends and sorority sisters, and I loved hearing about how close she is with her family. Lindsey had the CUTEST style and outfits – she sent me pictures of a few different dresses she was deciding between for her photos and I loved all of them! I specifically love how the two outfits she chose complimented each other – the blue and white is so classic, and that dress was just precious on her!

On another note, I’ve been dying for someone to bring mini balloons since Maggie brought hers in 2017 (there’s a throwback for ya!), and it finally happened! I LOVE these for the class of 2021! Lindsey was smart and attached them before her session so they would stay together, but we did have a bit of wind and ended up just using the 21! It was perfect!

Thank you for inviting me to help celebrate your senior year, Lindsey! I have SO many favorites from your shoot – I hope these treasured photos live on in your family’s home for years to come!
