Elise + Ally-Jane Graduation Session || William Paca House, Annapolis

I had the most fantastic shoot this past Saturday morning with two fantastic sisters! The youngest, Ally-Jane, wanted to explore the grounds of the beautiful William Paca House in Annapolis, which certainly offered an incredible backdrop for these two smart, sweet, and silly ladies to ham it up for their session.

Ally-Jane is a senior at Kent Island High School, looking to study International Law....

...and Elise graduated with her Master's in Occupational Therapy from St. Francis University this past spring!

They were each other's hype squad when one was in front of the camera, cracking each other (and me!) up constantly.

They brought along a portrait of the two of them from the early 00s (shoutout to the hair-wrap and big bow!), so of course we had to do a remake.

Not only are these beautiful chicas smart cookies and hard workers, but they're also all about the extracirculars; Elise was on the dance team, and Ally-Jane plays trombone as well as has taken part in a host of shows in the KIHS drama department. 

Congrats to these awesome sisters on all their accomplishments, and best of luck on the path ahead! -MEJ
