Photos of the Grad: Bet You Haven't Thought to Take a Picture of Your High School or College Graduate Here! by Amanda Heyser
When photographing college graduation, I asked my son to allow me to photograph in the same places I did when we dropped him off for his freshman year. I wanted him to see how he had changed over the years by comparing the photographs.
One of the hardest things for young adults is to measure how they have changed, particularly when they are so intensely involved in the growing process. I believe it helps them to see how the world views them. I also can share with him our feelings from the first day and how we are so proud of his accomplishments.
What a great memento!
