My niece, Salim, graduated last spring with her associate’s degree in early childhood education! But because of COVID, a normal graduation wasn’t possible! We got together for the first time in over a year and she asked me if I would take pictures of her with her diploma! It turned into a Lifestyle, Senior, and Engagement session all in one!
We agreed to meet in Danville as my husband was getting his second Covid vaccine there and it is only about an hour’s drive for my family. I scoured the area for a nice park where we could meet up and Dan Daniel Park was perfect!
Did I mention Salim is also engaged? Her engagement to Ian will be a long one as they are waiting until 2022 to marry! I’ve promised her an engagement session at a later date. But, we added a few of her and Ian to the session so she would have some romantic portraits of the two of them!
You’ll also see some of my sister, Shara, and my BIL, Shannon. Shara says they never have pictures taken. And of course, you’ll see images of Salim with her diploma, with her parents, my mom (aka Grammy), and me! Lumping a Lifestyle, Senior, and Engagement session all in one seems a bit odd but COVID makes everything weird these days.
We are super proud of Salim and can’t wait for her to graduate with her bachelor’s! She has a little over a year left! Salim has chosen to become a teacher! Children are her passion so her bachelor’s degree will be in elementary education. She has so many milestones ahead…. can you tell I’m the proud Aunt! Congratulations Salim!!
