If you are here to find some college cap and gown ideas, you are in the right place. I would also like to begin by saying congratulations on your upcoming graduation!!! College is such a fun experience and graduating is truly a special accomplishment. Since 2015, I have celebrated with so many amazing college grads by taking their pictures. During these sessions, I love hearing students college career highlights and where they are off to next.
In this blog I have broken down some of the common questions that I get asked regarding posing. What do I do with my hands? How do I hold the cap? If you are wondering what to do to make your graduation pictures a success, read on.
