These WILDLY popular sessions are perfect to CELEBRATE your graduate, get an updated portrait, and use for grad announcements. Want to show off where they are going to college? We'll do that too! These sessions are a huge hit and always sell out.
Graduation Portraits (apart from actually receiving your diploma) are like the icing on the cake! And you can bet I'll get a pic of you tossing that cap in the air (or better yet, blowing confetti off the top of it- ICONIC!!!) These sessions include Cap & Gown as well as College Swag photos. Not going to college next year? No worries! Bring a change of clothes for some updated portraits, or opt to have all cap & gown images.
The typical Graduation Portrait Session will include: images in your cap and gown, images in your commencement outfit with cap and stole/cords, images tossing your cap, or blowing confetti off it, images in just your commencement outfit, & finally images in blue jeans/denim skirt and College sweatshirt, T-shirt or hoody.
Our experience with Jessamy was Amazing! Our son had the most wonderful photo shoot! The photos turned out even better than we could have expected! We are so thankful that a friend had recommended Jessamy to us! If you are looking for someone who will walk you through the process and provide outstanding customer service, Jessamy is the one to choose!

“Jessamy was instrumental in helping me figure out outfits for my family (she even went virtual shopping with me, something that I absolutely LOVED) & calmed my nerves. Jessamy was by far the most interactive photographer we have ever had (from beginning to end) and I look forward to working w/her again in the future! I highly recommend Jessamy to anyone looking to have beautiful photos done!” - Tricia
“She's not only very professional in what she does, but she has fun along the way!”
"What an amazing experience! Jessamy fit my son into her booked schedule, what a savior! My son specifically requested Jessamy, after hearing from his friends how "cool" she is.
She was professional, and thoughtful, & explained every detail, from the beginning to the end. My son had a great time, and his gallery is amazing! I highly recommend Jessamy, You will see your kids in a whole new light."
PREVIOUS / NEXT
Most graduates wear the clothes that they plan to wear to their graduation ceremony, plus their cap, gown, tassel, and stole. Then they change into jeans and a college T-shirt or sweatshirt and sneakers or sandals. If you're not sure about college or have other plans, this is a great time for a second outfit and updated headshots (you'll need them)!
WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND WEARING FOR THE SHOOT?
Definitely! Group grad sessions are the ultimate way to create a milestone memory with your day one besties. There are lots of examples on my social media of these super fun sessions.
can I bring my best friend? or 5 of them??
Cap & Gown/College Swag (also called "grad sessions") are scheduled in May and June. Schools hand out commencement gear at different times, but typically not before mid-to-late April. I recommend checking with your school front office, or on your Senior Info page on your school's website. *booking opens March 1st, 2024
When do you recommend SCHEDULING?
Ahh springtime in the Pacific Northwest! There is a good chance of it, but to be honest, I never worry about the forecast until a couple of hours before the scheduled session. I ask you to be flexible on the day of your scheduled shoot. We may have to move your session to earlier or later based on the weather and the scheduled sunset.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
You did it! Now it's time to celebrate (and feel GORGEOUS and CONFIDENT at the same time).
Sharing your images is SO EASY. You'll have access to an online gallery where you can easily download, share, and print your high resolution digital files. Additional images will be available for purchase if you choose.
Your session is custom designed just for you and includes 1 location, 8 images and 2 outfit changes. Studio sessions may be available.
