Congratulations to the BASIS Flagstaff Class of 2022.
Family, friends and community came together to celebrate 43 graduates of the BASIS Flagstaff Class of 2022 at NAU’s Prochnow Auditorium on May 13, 2022.
Having photographed the BASIS boy’ and girls basketball teams this year, I wanted to capture some more moments as a big part of their teams graduated.
I went to school in a small town in Montana so I could relate to the tightknit class. The fact that they shared similar struggles through the educational rigors of BASIS learning brought them even close together.
I love photographing graduations because it is such a pivotal moment in someone’s life. It’s the actual moment that shifts you from a child under your parents’ care to an adult and you can see that shift in the way they smile and the way they act.
It’s a cross between HELL YES and OH SHIT.
I hung out on the lawn and took graduation photos of the graduates with their families and friends. And while I wasn’t able to get photos of everyone, it was nice seeing the ones who stopped by.
I really hope you like the photographs.
