Meet Aaliyah, a Sacramento native and recent graduate of Sacramento State University with a degree in Psychology. From the moment she stepped onto the campus wearing her stunning green dress, it was clear that Aaliyah was ready create some beautiful photos.
Aaliyah chose to attend Sac State because of its proximity to her hometown. “I wanted to be closer to home and I went with what was more familiar” said Aaliyah.
One of Aaliyah’s favorite moments during her time at Sac State was attending her first tailgate, a staple experience for any college student. In addition to her studies, Aaliyah was also a part of a club called Diverse Empowered Women.
The greenery at Sac State provided the perfect backdrop for Aaliyah’s photos. Her green dress complemented the natural surroundings perfectly. In addition, her choice of traditional garments also added a unique and personal touch to the session.
These photos will be a cherished keepsake for her and her loved ones. Especially for her family in the Middle East, who will be unable to attend her graduation in person.
Throughout the shoot, Aaliyah was a natural in front of the camera. To add, her easygoing and confident demeanor made for a relaxed and enjoyable experience for both her and myself as the photographer.
Aaliyah’s ultimate goal in life is to achieve financial freedom, and she loves spending her summers at the beach. She describes herself as resilient, loyal, and logical. Aaliyah has a hidden talent as well – she can cook up a storm with the right tools.
One of Aaliyah’s favorite quotes is “Take me as I am, or watch me as I go.” A powerful statement that reflects her strength and determination to succeed.
It was a privilege to be able to capture these special moments for Aaliyah. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
