For the past few years, we have displayed the cards in our entry way, just scotch-taped to the wall & door, & we leave them up waaaay past New Year’s, because it’s just so […]

carly • high-school grad portraits • redondo beach, ca

I have always loved that the graduation ceremony is called “commencement.” How poetic & forward-thinking that person in academia was when they decided to call it that–& how glad I am that it has persisted through the ages.
