Hold up. Slow your scroll and take in this lovely lady's graduation photo shoot. 

Ana Flora came all the way from West Africa to do her bachelors in international economics at Washington State University. She started off only knowing Spanish and had to quickly learn English (in university classes!) As someone who has learned languages in the past, French and Chinese, I cannot imagine just how challenging that would have been. Not only is she incredibly intelligent and absolutely gorgeous, but she's also one of the sweetest people you'll meet. 

In addition to her graduation photos, I also did a shoot with her and her family after commencement. They came all the way from West Africa to celebrate their daughter's accomplishments. And they were the coolest bunch of people to hang out with. Is it possible to have too much fun during a photo shoot? If so, we sure did!

Ana, I wish you ALL the best in your future career. I know you'll do great things!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
