When we went to pick up my daughter at college it was the beginning of Senior Week. Along with the parties and celebration, there is the taking of graduation photos.
My daughter said that students can hire a photographer by the hour, and they go around campus, (and to monuments in DC if you are willing to pay extra) and take pictures of the graduate in their cap and gown. We saw tons of girls doing this…
Tons of girls.
We did not see one boy getting photographed for graduation.
My daughter said in the days before, she had not seen one guy getting his graduation picture taken.
So my simple questions are:
- Do guys just not care about a professional picture in their cap and gown?
- Do parents of guys not care about a professional picture of their graduate in cap and gown?
I know for sure that I want a beautifully photographed shot of my daughter in her cap and gown. I also want the 8000 photos that I will take. I haven’t decided if I’m spending the extra money for the Lincoln Memorial photo op…but I know I want the others. But am I being silly?
Yes or no to a professional photo of your graduate?
