my sister elise, to whom i sometimes refer as ‘smarty-pants-renaissance-woman elise,’ graduated from UNC at chapel hill on may 8, which was also mother’s day.  i am still preparing a post with fun family photos, but i wanted to go ahead and share some artsy-fartsy shots.  elise asked me to bring my ‘nice’ camera and take photos around campus and during the ceremony.  actually, there were 3 separate graduation-related ceremonies that weekend!  but the main one, which included all graduates, took place at kenan stadium (the football stadium) on a beautiful sunday, and these are some of my favorite shots from that day.  i love how ‘carolina blue’ pervades each photo!

elise, we are all SOOOOOOO proud of you!!!
