A girl & her dog.

My roommate is the absolute best. She let's me photograph her any time I need, even if it means getting up at 5am to go shooting.

Janna Van der Hoven & her Australian Shepherd pup, Rhaegar, got ready and went with me to George Mason University to shoot her graduation photos. She had to work later that day- and the downside (also an upside!) to photography is that lighting is everything.

So she woke up at 5:30am, got herself and the dog ready to go, I grabbed my camera and some treats, and we set off for campus to capture her shining moment. The end result was well worth it.
