These Howard University freshman portraits for Jordan were so much fun to capture (even if I am a Hampton graduate myself!). When Jordan reached out to me about doing portraits at her new home, Howard University, I was really excited for her. I had photographed her senior portraits from high school and so to be able to follow her to the next stop on her journey was a wonderful moment for me. This session was just all about the excitement of being a college freshman and it really couldn’t have been more fun!
Although I joked on Instagram a few hours before our session that I should show up in my Hampton University paraphernalia, I was so excited to arrive on campus and find Jordan. Howard University truly has some beautiful spots and this was a great way to document the start of Jordan’s journey here. With both classic and playful outfits, Jordan broke the tradition of only capturing portraits when you’re a senior – and I loved it all. She looks so happy and so confident. I can’t wait to hear how her time at HU goes!
I am so honored to have clients that trust me to capture their biggest moments – from high school graduation to starting somewhere new, I hope to be with Jordan for many years to come. Maybe even photograph her wedding one day! No matter what the moment is that you’re celebrating, I want to be there with you to document it all. Jordan, thank you for trusting me with your big moments! I’m SO happy for you!
