A Winter Graduation

This girl holds a special place in my heart.  As a wide-eyed, wonderfully ignorant freshman at Biola University I walked into the all girls dorm-Alpha and found my assigned room number. 'Catherine Nassar' was the name that read beside mine on the door.  Later I found out she goes by her middle name, Alex.  Not knowing anything more about this girl except for a few photos I could see on facebook, we began living together.  Strange how in college it becomes so normal to live with complete strangers.  Over the years she has become a dear friend, and in our fourth year we are living together once again. I loved being able to shoot Alex's graduation photos and I can't believe that four years has gone by! In just a few short weeks this lady will be walking the stage and getting her Bachelors degree!
