Spring 2023 Kean University Senior Graduation Session, NJ | Ashley

Set the Scene: Aspirations and Achievements at Kean University

Kean University in Union, New Jersey, with its sprawling campus and modern facilities, served as the proud backdrop for Ashley’s graduation session this May. Here, amidst the architecture that fosters innovation and learning, Ashley celebrated a significant academic milestone, reflective of her adventurous spirit and ambitious dreams.

Ashley, a 22-year-old adventurer, and dedicated mom, has not only mastered the balancing act of parenthood and rigorous academic pursuits but has also set her sights on the stars—quite literally. As she donned her cap and gown, her eyes were fixed on a future among them, working with NASA and AI, and even donning an astronaut’s suit. This session captured not just a graduate, but a visionary in the making.

Our shoot at Kean University was infused with Ashley’s passion for technology and her adventurous spirit. We captured her in settings that spoke to her dual love of computer science and the cosmos. Each photograph was a testament to her determination to push boundaries, whether coding complex algorithms or exploring the vastness of space.
