I always encourage graduates to personalize their session with a meaningful memento or a location that holds special memories for them. How thrilled I was when Reem and Fatimah showed up with their country’s flag. So honored to capture their journey, success, and Saudi heritage. ?
Fatimah is a Supply Chain (business) major and Reem is a chemist. These two are such besties. They truly look out for one another, fixing each other’s cap, helping each other refresh their makeup, etc. While I love posing them, I also find so much joy capturing moments in which they weren’t camera aware.
Halfway through our photoshoot, I finally figured it out. Reem was giving me Lady Gaga vibes. Right?!? This chemist can totally have a second career in modeling. ☺️ She has her sights on pursuing graduate school in quantum chemistry, however. 🙂 And while we anticipated rain, Fatimah was determined to combat the clouds by bringing her own sunshine (sunflowers) to the session. 🙂 And just like the blooms, Fatimah has such a sweet and bright disposition. ❤️
Fatimah & Reem – Congratulations on all you have achieved at Penn State! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these important memories. The future is so bright for you both! Although you’ll be continents apart, I hope your friendship remains as close as ever!
