Vanderbilt University Graduate Portraits for College Seniors | Nashville TN Senior Portraits with Dolly DeLong Photography

friends throw graduation caps in the air on steps by Nashville Photographer Dolly DeLong

Every once in a while in business, something special comes along that you just have to say “YES!” to. These Vanderbilt University graduate portraits for this sweet group of girlfriends was absolutely one of those moments. I typically only photograph motherhood and family sessions here in Nashville, along with branding photography for business owners. But, when these friends reached out to me about capturing their senior portraits and I heard their story, I just couldn’t say no! And I’m so glad I decided to do these portraits because it was such a blast.

These eight young ladies have been together as friends since their freshman year of college. Over the last four years, they’ve navigated every part of college life together and now, they’re about to graduate! To commemorate such a special moment, they wanted to do a senior portrait session as a group. Together, we explored Vanderbilt for their photos as well as a little bit of downtown Nashville. We captured portraits of each of the graduates as well as TONS as a group. Watching them laugh and celebrate their biggest milestone yet as a group, I couldn’t stop smiling. There’s just something amazing about the power of sisterhood and friendship.

I want to say a special thank you to Kati Edge Make-up + Hair for helping these ladies look their best. And to these beautiful young women, CONGRATULATIONS! I wish you all so much success!!
