Grand Haven, Michigan | Grand Valley State University Graduation Portraits | Payton



I met Payton back in 2010; we were in the same dorm our freshman year of college at Grand Valley State University. She was just as quirky as I am so we instantly hit it off, and became even closer in our sophomore year. We have still kept close over the years, so it really was an honor and a ton of fun to photograph her college grad pictures!

If you can’t already tell by these pictures, Payton is a ton of fun and is also going into the Disney College Program in January. Her whole family has a deep love for Disney so it was a no brainer that she was going to apply to the DCP. I was one of the first people she called, and just hearing in her voice how excited she was put a huge smile on my face.

For Payton’s grad session she wanted to have some fun and be silly but also have a few professional photographs she can use for the future.

Congrats again Payton on graduating and also getting into the DCP! I can’t wait to see where life takes you!
