Traveling to Sacramento State to photograph this first generation college graduate was a real treat!

Jessica graduated this past May as an art major, and this girl is the real deal. COVID stole graduation day, but it didn’t steal the accomplishments Jess made by getting that degree! I love checking out all the ceramic designs she’s creating. Follow her over @wolfeceramics to see more of her artwork.

I mean how cool are these clay pots?! It was really fun to take her graduation photos of Jess doing her thing; working on projects, organizing all of her tools and just enjoying what she’s set out to do. I will never get tired of photographing businesses and clients who are joyful and thankful for everything they’re doing!

Photographing Jess in her natural habitat is amazing! As creatives, we thrive in spaces where we feel at home. The ceramics studio at Sacramento State has been Jessica’s happy place for a long time. Seeing all the projects Jess is working on is just icing on the cake. I got to peek into her creative mind during this shoot which is absolutely amazing!

Sacramento State has a gorgeous roadway lined with tall trees and color changing leaves. Fall light is so gorgeous, and so getting to snap some photographs of Jessica on these campus hallmarks of Sacramento State.
