Graduation Photography

Graduation - college, high school, or even preschool - is the celebration of an accomplishment, and an end of an era. What better way to celebrate that than with a photoshoot to commemorate that accomplishment forever?

My goal as a lifestyle photographer is not only to let you show off your stylish cap and gown, but to help tell your story, show your character through the images that we create together. This often means bypassing the traditional route of stiffly standing in front of the school sign holding a diploma and instead planning ahead to create images unique to you. From setting up a whole scene to show what you did in school (like if you had to drink 5 energy drinks to pull an all-nighter to finish a paper) or simply curling up in the softest couch in the library with the book you read cover to cover multiple times in between school projects, I'll create images unique to you.

Adrian is an amazing photographer! She took my graduation photos at UNCA and I couldn’t be happier with them! She is professional, timely, and will make you feel at ease/comfortable while taking pictures.

Your Graduation Photography

This session is the perfect way to document not only your achievements, but your excitement as you move into a new phase! Get all dressed up, adventure with me to a beautiful location, bring some cake and we'll make it a celebration! Or we can photograph all through your favorite parts of campus, reliving your favorite memories as you show off your triumphs. Even bring your best friends and make an afternoon of it! This makes a beautiful keepsake not only for the final product, but also because of the time you all will get to spend together.

Your Celebration Album

Showcase your memories and accomplishments with this beautiful print album. Every one of my graduation collections comes with a 15 spread photo album so that you can relish in your triumphs and showcase your personality memorialized in print for years to come. I also offer gift albums so your parents and grandparents (and later your children!) can celebrate with you as well.

Your Shareable Gallery

In this digital age, it's so easy to share your gorgeous photos with friends and family across the globe, just with the click of a button. Included in every one of my graduation collections is an online gallery from which you can download social media sized digital images OR simply share the link to show off your photos! From here you, family and friends can also purchase prints, canvases and digital products which will ship straight to you! 


Adrian is one of a kind! She is incredibly professional and talented with her work. She has a knack for making you feel comfortable throughout the photoshoot and gets the photos back to you faster than you could even hope for. I highly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a photographer, no matter what event or occasion.
