A few weeks back my assistant and I traveled to Corpus Christi to photograph this beautiful soul. Desiree is graduating from Texas A&M University–Corpus Christ and we took these photos to celebrate this huge milestone in her life. Ms. Chavez is originally from Mission, Texas but decided to go to school by the bay.
I have known Desiree for a few years now and she’s just such an awesome person. She’s full of puns, is a socially conscious, outgoing and very interesting. I think some these first shots really bring out her colorful personality. Oh and she has style as well. We tried to keep the shoot simple yet fun.
We actually started the photo shoot on the campus of the school, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christ. We photographed her in front of the iconic wave that oversees the ocean. Then we walked to an area on campus she loved most and then we finished the photo shoot downtown to a beautiful mural right before it poured on us.
