I loved meeting up with Grey for his Oak Park, IL cap and gown session before his graduation! Grey just finished up his last year at Oak Park-River Forest High School and is headed to sunny South Carolina to Clemson University! This Class of 2021 senior is trading orange and blue for orange and purple. 🙂
Oak Park, IL Cap and Gown Photoshoot
This senior was kind and nice. It was easy to see why his parents are so proud of him!
I had to look up where Clemson is because my Midwest and East coast geography is 100% not up to snuff. Although it’s very inland (like close to Georgia inland), it’s on a river and Grey says there’s even a beach right on the University! NICE.
He’s smiling at me because I got so excited with the nice light. 🙂
“Give the street a serious look, Grey.” Can we also notice that their flowers are Clemson’s colors? Nice coordination!
Laughing because he had to give the street a serious look.
This black and white one is my favorite! It gives me all the classic movie star vibes.
Grey’s mom asked for a family picture along with his Oak Park, IL cap and gown photos. I arrived a little early to the photo session in order to walk around the block and see if I could find some pretty light. I appreciate them trusting me when I insisted in taking a walk over to this spot!
His sweet parents are bursting with pride for him and it’s so immediately obvious.
Finishing with my favorite shot of Grey and his mom!
Here’s what Grey’s mom had to say about their experience!
