As we walked through the cap and gown-filled hallways and down the baby hills, we found ourselves almost dashing for the perfect spot to start Naomi’s undergrad graduation photo shoot at UCLA. Yes, it was a bit crowded with future bruin alumni and their “paparazzi.” I was among several photographers trying to get the perfect light, shot, and spot for my graduate. So as we waited for our turn to grab a snap under the Bruin Bear or in front of Royce Hall we chatted about Naomi’s ultra ambitious future in Psychology. Naomi wowed me when she said that after graduating she would attend a dual commuting Psychology intern program. She will have to travel to both UCLA and UCR and had no complaints about the commute whatsoever. After her internship she plans to start her PHd program in hopes that she would finish within five years and then work as a Psychologist with children. Wowzers! I was impressed. You go girl! Along with brains, Naomi was truly humble, sweet, and ever so beautiful. Throughout our evening of chatting and photographing her flawless style we got down and dirty and I challenged Naomi to climb to Bruin Bear to get, well a fantastic shot. This girl has killer long legs and still I pushed, she heaved, I shoved and she screamed, but in the end we laughed and got some pretty amazing and memorable pictures of her ridding the good ole bear. Oh by the way, as she was half way up she screamed, “but I’m afraid of heights!” Aye, this girl.
I absolutely loved our time spent laughing, almost crying and you still looked gorgeous! Congratulations sweetie and good luck with your amazing journey! I know you will be just excellent, especially since you will be rocking all those honors cords at graduation. Here’s a bit more of Naomi’s shoot.
