SJSU Graduation Pictures | Christine

Meet the Graduate

Meet Christine, a San Jose State University Class of 2021 graduate! Christine will be graduating with a degree in Kinesiology, with an emphasis in Inclusive Physical Activity in Communities (IPAC)! Christine is originally from Apple Valley, California, a large town of about 70,000 people situated in the Victor Valley area of San Bernardino County. When asked why she decided to attend SJSU, Christine answered “I chose to transfer into this university because I wanted to relocate to the Bay Area.  My favorite moment during my time at SJSU was realizing how far I’ve come.”

The Shoot

I love shooting SJSU graduation pictures. The campus is beautiful, and during the spring, SJSU becomes my second home. 2021 has been extremely busy with grad pictures and I am extremely grateful for that.

Christine was on time and ready to shoot. She brought a very unique and colorful SJSU Philippines Stole that I had never photographed before. It looked great in pictures. The vibrant red flowers had great contrast against her white dress.

We started our session with the ever so popular Student union glass wall. I love this location because you can control the lighting and it creates a great cool mood created with all the mirror-like glass wall. From here, we slid over and captured a few frames at the 7th street plaza. The tall, elegant looking palm trees always look great in pictures. And finally, we concluded our session by capturing some images by the quad near Tower Hall.

Below are some of my favorite SJSU graduation pictures from our session with Christine. Enjoy!
