The first ever #RGPSenior Grad Party is officially in the books! Last year, I had the pleasure of capturing senior photos for 19 amazing graduates! I really can’t say enough great things about these kids, and I’m constantly impressed at their talents, achievements, and individualism. Most of the seniors I photographed last season were from Eagan High School (since I work there part-time), but I also widened my net to students from Eastview, Rosemount, and Chanhassen. The school list continues to grow for the Class of 2020 as well! I was so impressed at how open and welcoming everyone was to each other, though they didn’t know each other beforehand. It was just further proof of how awesome my #RGPsenior clients are.
Because I had such a stellar class of seniors this year, I wanted to celebrate them in some way. The idea of hosting a grad party for my Class of 2019 seniors hit me in about January, and I’ve been planning ever since. I booked a beautiful little studio in Northeast Minneapolis owned by Lauren Falk, and the rest began to fall into place! I tried to plan down to every detail, including on-brand decor, lemonade “mocktails”, color-coordinated snacks, and a dance-friendly playlist. Each senior who attended got a fun little bag of goodies from me as well as a mini photo shoot. The real treat, however, was some final time spent together before all of them head off to college this fall! Within the group, I had valedictorians, future scientists, Broadway-bound talent, and plenty of comedians. We learned a lot about each other through a game of Two Truths and a Lie and took plenty of pictures in the photo booth! I can’t say enough great things about my class of 2019 #RGPseniors, and I wish all of them the absolute best in the future.
