GRADUATE EXPERIENCE

Timeless & Intentional Imagery

for Bama Grads, from a Bama Grad.

Hey, I'm Skylar,


I've proudly been a University of Alabama Graduation Photographer for about 4 years now!


If you're here, you're graduating college. CONGRATS!!! Figuring out which photographer you want to take your grad photos is overwhelming, but allow me to break down why I'm the best match for you:

  1. As a 2022 Bama Grad (see photo!!), I know all the ins and outs of campus, when the lighting is right and where, and the cutest angles at all the iconic spots
  2. I've been taking UA Grad Photos since 2020, so I've got all the insider tricks and tips in my back pocket so you can slay grad photos with ease
  3. I love all animals. I encourage my grads to bring theirs!
  4. I'll drink your champagne with you at 7AM!!!! (not kidding, bring glasses)
  5. I'm super shy in front of the camera, so I've mastered making others feel their most confident in front of mine


OK, now enjoy this photo from my grad photos and browse my work!

Skylar took my college graduation photos and was absolutely incredible! Throughout the entire process from booking to receiving photos, Skylar was terrific! She was very quick with her communication and prior to the shoot, even sent a Guide to Grad Photos booklet with suggestions of items to bring to the shoot from extra makeup to props with examples from previous shoots. During the shoot, she was so fun and encouraging and made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. The photos came out absolutely stunning! I am blown away by all the incredible work that she does! She is incredibly talented and such a sweet person to work with! Cannot recommend a better photographer!

Skylar is simply the best! She was so friendly, accommodating, encouraging, and brought a positive energy to the session! My pictures came out more than perfect because she knew all the good angles, made sure the lighting was great, & made sure I posed properly! Going to anyone else but Skylar would be a mistake!

FAQ

What sets you apart from other photographers?

I have a vast experience working in sports photography, specifically for the NFL, Alabama Athletics, Georgia Football, Stanford Softball, and more! When I stepped away from sports to focus on portraits and weddings, I found myself using the skills I used working with professional and D1 athletes with my clients:

1. Movement inspires me. I thrive off of implementing dynamic posing and prompting in my sessions which allows my clients to loosen up and simply be themselves.
2. I know how the body should move, so I can recognize what looks stiff and unnatural. You can tell when someone is uncomfortable in a photo, and that is something I want to avoid at all costs. If I see your body not reacting to something I have you do the way I want it to, I will adapt it to compliment you and your body the best!
3. Athletes are athletes, not models. The average graduate is normal, not a model. Between working with athletes, grads, couples, and everyone in between, I have nailed down the language and poses to get you the best photos of yourself possible.

How many locations can I fit in my session?

You are allowed as many locations as we can fit in the session time. I ask you your location list ahead of time so I can schedule out how much time we can spend at each one with commute times.

I usually tell my grads:*
The Classic: 4 close-together landmarks on campus (UA: Denny Chimes, President's Mansion, University Blvd., BDS).
The Deluxe: 4 close-together landmarks on campus and one further on-campus location (UA: All listed on 'The Classic' + sorority house, college, athletic facility, etc.).
The Premium: 4 close-together landmarks on campus and one off-campus location (UA: All listed on 'The Classic' + bar, restaurant, rooftop, etc.).

*These are not set in stone. I want to know everything you have in mind, so I am more than happy to break away from the normal places!

Do you provide my champagne and confetti?

I do offer an add-on that will have me pick up the champagne and confetti that will get you the best pop and toss ever! If you want to get it on your own, I will give you recommendations on what to buy and from where.

Will I get the print release to print my photos?

Yes! Upon sending your full gallery, I will also deliver a print release. I do offer a print shop that has luxury printing options from a vendor that I recommend to everyone and personally use.

Will you Photoshop my images to hide any unwanted spots, wrinkles, etc.?

I firmly believe that we are all beautiful in our own ways. I do not Photoshop permanent parts of your body, wrinkles, freckles, moles, etc.. I would be happy to edit out bruises, a zit, a spot on your dress, etc.!

What happens if there is rain on the forecast?

Weather, especially in Alabama, is super unpredictable, so I am always watching if I have a session coming up. I will message you about 24 hours before your session to tell you that there is rain on the radar and that we might have to reschedule. I do not make the final call about rescheduling until at least 6 hours before your session.

LET'S CELEBRATE!!
