UW Campus Portraits w/ Ava by Victoria Lemos

The past few weeks have been pretty busy & stressful (LSAT studying is no joke) but I really want to get a few blog posts up before this month ends soon. I had quite a few sessions & I want to share my favorite images from each! 

A few weeks ago I was thinking about finally shooting creatively again since it's been a few months. Usually, I'll just look for potential models on Instagram & reach out. I was in the process of thinking about styling ideas when I received a DM from Ava who asked if I'd be interested to shoot! I immediately knew I loved her look so after discussing styling ideas we agreed to meet at UW Seattle campus & take some portraits. At this same time, I had found a Brandy Melville account specifically made for the new Washington location. I had contacted the account manager and she linked me a few potential models I could work with for the brand. Once Ava and I met up, I realized she was wearing Brandy Melville (coincidentally) so I knew right away I wanted to send a few images to the account. Here are a few of my favorites! We ended up being featured & that to me, is pretty cool. Brandy Melville is known for only advertising using white models so I'm happy we were able to bring beautiful diversity into the mix.

Seattle University College Grad Portraits by Victoria Lemos

Another college grad portrait session and I'm not complaining. This was a few days ago during 78-degree weather in Seattle! Summer has arrived early it seems, so I'm trying to take advantage of the sun with no time to waste. 

I've worked with Anna more than a few times already so I was excited to see her again and shoot her grad portraits. We walked through the campus and found the prettiest backdrops to shoot in front of. Her dress and shoes were also a plus; they worked so well with the colors around us! I'm really happy with how these images turned out all around. Congrats Anna!
