Cap and Gown Photos Are the New Senior Portraits

This year I was very fortunate and was able to do quite a few Cap and Gown photos up at SUNY Plattsburgh–what a blast!

SUNY Adirondack Cap and Gown Photos
People typically think that only high school seniors get portraits done when they graduate, but I am noticing a trend of people wanting to celebrate their graduation from college with Cap and Gown photos.

These sessions were not super long, and we did them as a group with Sorority Sisters, so we got some very fun shots with friends–check out the video at the end!

Plattsburgh Nursing Grad Cap and Gown Photo
Jade is going to be a Nurse, so we included her stethoscope.

I have noticed that people seem to be more at ease for these sessions than for a High School Senior Portrait Session.  I think that is because they have just spent four years figuring out who they really are and what they want to become.  They are a little more comfortable showing themselves.

Be sure to wear something super cute underneath your gown because we can have some fun with that too.

Tips for a fun Cap and Gown Session:

  1. Decorate your cap!  Super cute when you have something fun!
  2. Don’t forget your cords and other accessories.
  3. Wear something nice underneath
  4. Bring friends!

Below is a short video from the Cap and Gown Session for AEPhi:
