Shawn | Graduation Portraits

A couple months ago, my dear friend Do-Hee hired me to photograph some portraits for her brother Shawn, who just graduated from medical school. Despite the global pandemic, or perhaps even more so because of it, we’re all being asked to celebrate our wins and mark special moments in whatever safe, thoughtful, creative ways we can. I was so glad to be able to capture these portraits for Shawn and Do-Hee (from over six feet away, with my mask on)!

Congrats, Shawn! These photos all bring a smile to my face.

Haha, Shawn came prepared with his special stethoscope pose request.

Siblings! And Do-Hee’s husband Josh even indulged us for a photo at the end of the session.

Glad to report that we’ll continue to find moments of celebration even in dark, uncertain times.
