Hempfield Class of 2022 Graduation brought another event for Hempfield Area High School’s Class of 2022…and another rainy day. On the way to photograph this group of Hempfield soon-to-be graduates, the weather turned from sunny to rainy. I’m not talking just a light rain kind of day, but a complete downpour! UGH…here we go again😩. We had planned the perfect outdoor location for photos, but Mother Nature had other plans. Seriously…how can I get a good word in with her?! Plan B ended up being the Westmoreland Museum of Art, who are always very accommodating when I ask to photograph there – huge shout out to them!!
This particular group of Class of 2022 graduates holds a fond place in my heart because they are my niece, Camryn’s, group of friends. I have known Tara (Ms. Voit) since kindergarten and her and Camryn have stayed friends – despite going to different middle schools. Jordan (IUP) & Emma (SVC), were teammates of Camryn’s throughout her 4 years on the HAHS swim team. Andrew (the only guy in the bunch) is Camryn’s boyfriend. And, Lauren (OU) is a recent friend who I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know this year.
I am so happy to be able to do what I do and capture these milestone events for not only my niece and her family, but all of my clients! This graduation day session was even more important because, due to the rain, graduation was moved from the HAHS Football Stadium to inside at the Field House. That meant that only a few family members could attend for each graduate, and therefore, I wasn’t able to attend the actual graduation ceremony. So, I am SO happy that I was able to see Camryn and her friends in their caps and gowns before the ceremony. I did get to watch the livestream, but it’s just not the same as being there – am I right?
That’s a wrap on the Hempfield Class of 2022 Graduation. I cannot wait to see what this group of Hempfield Alumni (yep, you’re all official alum now), are going to do in the world!
