My friend Lauren stopped in Austin for a few days on her way to move to Los Angeles. While here she wanted to snap some senior portraits in iconic Austin locations to commemorate her time as an undergrad in this wonderful city. Lauren is a super sweet, fun and driven person chasing after an LA dream. During our session she started feeding a campus squirrel and the squirrels are so used to this that they will get really close and grab the food straight from your hands. They even pose for photos sometimes. Talking with Lauren about her future plans inspired me and made me feel proud of her and all our fellow alumni. Every senior or recent graduate I've talked with has big aspirations for themselves and the ambition to make it happen. That's why I love senior portrait sessions at my alma mater.
Samantha personifies the UT motto "what starts here changes the world." She has always impressed me with her ambition and intelligence and she is very passionate about the Middle East. Samantha graduated with a BA in Government and Arabic and is moving to Washington D.C. for work. Although she will be changing the world up in D.C. a Texas girl is always a Texas girl at heart!
My friend Shane is funny, intelligent and a talented writer. He graduated from UT with a BA in English. Shane is currently in China, being awesome, and interning for a law firm. When he returns he'll be attending George Washington University Law School in the fall. I know this guy is going to do great things!
