University of California | Berkeley, CA

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot my friend, Ferdilyn's, graduation portraits. It had been awhile, so it was great catching up and photographing this moment for her.

Ferdilyn graduated from the University of California so we visited some of her favorite places around campus. Cal is one of the most beatiful universities I've ever visited. I think if I toured it before going to Davis, I'd have gone here instead.

My favorite part of the shoot was visiting Ferdilyn's architecture studio at Wurster Hall. The showcased student pieces were really impressive and the work environment looked like a lot of fun. There was even a separate little room to spray paint projects!

The shoot was a lot of fun and I'm very happy with the results. I'm glad we didn't just stick to the classic Cal sights; being able to photograph Ferdilyn in her studio was really special. Congratulation, Ferdilyn! And good  the best of luck to you!

In honor of graduation, I thought I'd close with Dr Seuss' Oh The Places You'll Go. If you're ever feeling unmotivated or uninspired, give it a read. It never gets old.
