Grinnell College Senior: Phyllis

Phyllis just celebrated a HUGE accomplishment – graduating from Grinnell College!  I’ve known Phyllis for four years through my work with college students, and she is the sweetest young lady, and incredibly talented and smart.  In the fall, she’s headed to graduate school at Emory University in Atlanta.

But this girl has also got style! 🙂  I’d been hoping we could squeeze in a quick session before she graduated, and we were lucky enough to find an early hour that worked for both of us.  Phyllis, I had such a blast, and I’m going to miss you!

After a few photos around the college in downtown Grinnell, Phyllis specifically requested we get some quintessential “Iowa” shots: corn fields, barns, nature, etc.  Being a self-proclaimed “city girl” from Ghana, she wanted to make sure she had some great photos to remember her time in Grinnell.  I’m glad we could make it happen!

One of my favorites.

I take that back, the one below on the left might be my favorite!

Congrats, Phyllis!  I hope you come back for a visit sometime, I’d love to see you again 🙂
