Located in downtown San Jose, the SJSU campus lives at the heart of Silicon Valley. One of the school’s most alluring aspect is it’s social and academic atmosphere. Any incoming student will have no difficulty in attaining friends and an active social life.
When Nicole mentioned she was a part of the school’s dance team, I thought it would be cool to capture some photos in her uniform. “Let your dreams take flight.” This quote seemed fitting for our shoot. Since we were shooting late in the afternoon, we had to hurry up with the wardrobe change. Fortunately, Nicole was great and was in and out of her outfits in rather seconds.
Below are some of our favorite SJSU grad photos with Nicole. Enjoy!
