The University of Alabama Graduation Portrait Session | Maddie H.


November 22, 2022

Are you ready for one of my favorite The University of Alabama graduation portrait sessions I’ve EVER done?! Maddie was a graduate in the Fall of 2022, and her session was perfect! This is one of my favorite times of the year for graduation sessions because the weather is amazing, and the colors are beautiful, too!

Maddie’s Graduation Portrait Session

Maddie was a business student at The University of Alabama so we took photos at Culverhouse and Bidgood Hall for some of her photos to reflect her experience on campus. These made for super professional and classic photos that she can use to show off her wonderful accomplishments graduating college and entering the real world! 

After that, we headed to Bryant-Denny Stadium for all the fun, celebratory images incorporating props like champagne and confetti!  I share more about my favorite props for graduation sessions in another blog post you can read HERE! I love creating a variety of images in my graduates galleries, so they get the full experience during their graduation portrait session! This is such a major accomplishment, and it deserves to be celebrated to the fullest!

Another way to add variety to your gallery is by incorporating a close friend or family member into a few photos!  For Maddie’s graduation portrait session, her sister joined in on a few photos, as she is also a student at The University of Alabama.  These also make for great photos of you and your siblings that your parents would LOVE for holiday gifts!
