Oh my goodness, I am so excited to share these photos with you. I don’t even have a favorite. I have like 10 favorites.
When Geraldine asked me several months ago to design her graduation announcements, and take her photos for the card.. I was so excited to get her in front of my camera. She is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out! And I was excited to celebrate this accomplishment with her too! After going to school, for what feels like forever, she has graduated with her Bachelors in Nursing and is now an RN! My friends are smart, people. And pretty. (P.S. Did I mention she’s single! P.P.S. I can’t wait to see who God has been holding on to for her!!)
Whoa, tangent… anyway, the goal for the day was to get her portraits done with some purple flowers since that’s one of her school’s colors. After some research, we found Key Farm’s Lavender Fields in Valley Center. Knowing that the times were going to be yucky, or at least not the best photography wise, we also decided to head down to the Carlsbad Flower Fields for sunset photos. And then oh yeah, that place closes at 6 and its summer in southern California and still quite hot and sunny then. Okay, so how about we go up to the beach, Oceanside, and then head home? Okay, as long as I can wear my heels, she says! So basically, these were taken everywhere and all throughout our very fun day! Hope you love them all as much as I do. And guys, message me for her number. kidding kidding… kinda. 🙂
I knew right away the day was going to be amazing when we had to make a u-turn and found this beautiful driveway… the perfect way to start our photo shoot (minus the whole getting lost and having to turn around aspect of course).
We then continued our adventure to the lavender fields… this is one of my favorites from the day and also the one we ended up using on her graduation announcement.
A little breeze never hurts…
I’m kind of obsessed with her eyelashes… wouldn’t you be??
And found some perfectly aged white fences to make another stop on our way out…
After another hour in the car, and a pitstop for coffee and tea… we found ourselves in the midst of the Carlsbad Flower Fields!
I wasn’t kidding before, I really am obsessed!
And lastly, on our way home we drove up through Oceanside to eat dinner, and take the last few photos of the day.
And the girl finally got to have her heels!
Then after all the photos were taken, edited, and sent off to Geraldine… we then started on the announcement for her graduation! Which is this coming weekend, yee-haw!!
Like I had said at the start, one of her school colors is purple and the other is a golden orange color. I really loved how these came out, from the typography to the custom built pattern.
Congratulations Geraldine!! I’m so proud of you and am so excited to see where your kind, selfless, and giving heart takes you!!
