Deciding on your college home is a big deal! You want it to be a good fit, to be fun, and to have the major or program you’ve had your heart set on. Tia is a senior who is deciding on her prospective college home, and we chatted about it a little bit during her senior shoot! I know that any college will be so lucky to have such a bright, kind and fun young woman. Currently, she is looking at California Polytech, San Luis Obispo, and Univ. of San Diego after visiting Milwaukee School of Engineering, Notre Dame & Northwestern. Tia is a very smart little lady, and has been really successful in her academics. She dreams of one day becoming an architectural engineer, and I know she’ll be fantastic!
When we met up for her senior shoot, I had just stumbled on a beautiful, shimmering wheat field on my morning walk. I was visiting home out in Washington and the field had not been harvested yet. This was great timing, because she had mentioned wanting to include a wheat field and a stunning sunset which reminded her of home…it fit the bill! I had this in mind, and so we left our last planned location and were gleefully anticipating making it just in time for sunset…we did…and found nothing but wheat stubble! To our surprise, it had been harvested between sun up & sundown THAT day! It was a good laugh though + it made for a hilarious memory. Tia was a great sport, and we were able to capture a gorgeous sunset anyways! We also utilized an old railroad track, which had been closed for years, but had the perfect rustic feel. We photographed all the pieces of “home” on her session; the gorgeous Whitman College campus, Grandma’s house, and the sunset fields in our whirlwind evening.
Tia, you’re such a joy and I’m tickled that we were home at the same time this summer to capture your senior portraits. I am so excited for your new adventures, and all the excitement you have ahead of you.
