Rayna | OU Graduate School Senior Photos | May 2021

Friends! Meet Rayna!! You don’t want to miss her story!

I think Rayna beat the MFP record for longest time on my calendar before her session!! She booked her senior photos over a YEAR in advance! When I first heard from Rayna back in May 2020, I was planning my wedding, rescheduling my spring 2020 OU seniors because of the shutdown, and Jonathan and I didn’t even own our house yet! It is wild to think so much has changed in just a year! Even better than that, Rayna takes the cake for the farthest traveled – she flew in from North Dakota for her OU graduate school senior photos! She’s spent the last several years working towards getting her graduate degree in accounting, and it has been quite the ride!

I loved meeting Rayna and her family the week of graduation! Her boyfriend, mom and dad, and uncle were all in town for the special occasion and it was the best reason to celebrate. I love how much of her personality is infused into these photos – the crimson cowboy boots are one of my favorite elements, but I can’t neglect the turquoise jewelry, too! She brought a little sass, and a whole lot of fun! Rayna has shared so many of her senior photos since our shoot in May, and it has been the best compliment to see her enjoying the photos we captured together!

Rayna – you’re a ray of sunshine and a treasure to know! Thank you for inviting me to capture your OU graduate school senior photos, for traveling states away to make it happen, and for celebrating your accomplishments in the best way! Blessings to you, friend!!

2022 OU seniors – can you believe it’s your turn? Spring spots are already booking and this group will be my smallest class yet! Get in touch now to learn more!
