Meet Ariel. She’s a soon-to-be summer graduate of Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. I had the opportunity to meet her family when I shot some prom pictures for her younger sister back in May, and had such a blast. When they got in touch with me to shoot her Aggie ring pictures before she graduates, I was more than happy to accept.
For those unfamiliar with Texas A&M University, they’re a school chock-full of many traditions. It all became apparent to me after I attended my first Texas A&M football game in the fall of 2009. All of the crazy chants, “Whoops!” and hand gestures were more than enough to confuse an outsider like myself. One thing quickly became apparent, these students had some serious pride. The Aggie Ring lies at the core of their school spirit and tradition (some really neat history behind it).
After Ariel graduates in August with her Business Management degree, she’s headed to Orlando for a summer internship at Disneyworld. Let’s be honest, if she worked hard enough to graduate an entire year early, she’s got a bright future ahead! So good luck Ariel and send us a Disney postcard. All the best from SSP!
Ariel’s sister was on hand to provide support (hair support – it got windy). Sisterly love; this is it folks.
