2019 Morrow High School Graduation

I first met Allera and her family earlier this year at her 18th birthday party in January. It was a nice event at a Japanese grill, and I absolutely loved getting to work with the family.

A few months later, Allera’s grandmother called me, asking if I knew any photographers in Plant City. I didn’t, but since Plant City isn’t too far from me, I found myself making the drive over there that weekend to take prom photos.

Then last weekend, I was heading toward Atlanta to help capture another big moment in Allera’s life.

The event started on a hot Saturday morning with the graduation ceremony at Georgia International Convention Center near the airport. It was a wonderful ceremony full of joy and an audience full of enthusiastic and supportive family members.

Few people measured up to Allera’s family, though, when it came to promoting their graduate’s success. It was so heartwarming to see how much her family cared for her as they cheered her on.

After the ceremony, we took pictures outside.

Later that day, the family continued to celebrate with a banquet across town. Having gotten there early, I took photos as the decorations went up. When everybody had arrived, we spent some time doing group photos. Then I spent the rest of the time trying to catch candids throughout the meal, speeches, and gifts.

It was really special to be able to help celebrate such a big milestone in Allera’s life, and I’m so grateful to have been welcomed so warmly to all of these events with this amazing family!
