Just WAIT until you hear the story behind Pauline’s session! She graduated from GW in December of 2019, reaching out to me right around her official graduation to schedule a spring grad session. We all know what unfortunately hit in the spring of 2020, so we postponed. Pauline actually calls PA home, so it took a while for us to find a date that would work for both of us and would allow us to keep things as safe as possible. (Shoutout to the vaccine, open air, and masks!) When her date finally got here, we were both so excited! She actually drove through the freaking night for her session… talk about dedication (!!), and we had so much fun exploring such a beautiful spot.
She got all dressed up in her grad attire, and we had a glorious morning at Lincoln, checking out the views in the early morning sunshine. It was SO much fun to celebrate her after all this time! It was also such a treat to have her in front of my camera and to hear all of her updates from the last year + all of her dreams for the future. Pauline is as kind as she is beautiful and has some amazing plans for her future, like opening up her own hotel overseas! (I’ll be first in line, Pauline!)
To wrap up her session, we also got to stop by Kogan Plaza on GW’s campus, and even though I never went to GW myself, I felt so nostalgic walking with Pauline! It was her first time on campus in a while, and it was so fun to see campus through her eyes. She pointed out a few of her dorms, favorite hangouts, and spots to stop for a bite to eat. I wish I had her as my tour guide back when I lived in DC— she knows all the good spots!
This session has been not months but YEARS in the making, and I am so beyond pumped to share it with you! So… without further ado… meet Pauline!
One of my faves! So epic with Lincoln in the back! Gah the views are just incredible at Lincoln! Some of my favorite portraits always seem to happen around back… the light is just incredible in the morning! We had to get creative with some of our angles… it was the first week back on campus, and students were everywhere!
