Meili W. | St. Edward's University | Class of 2019

It’s funny. We were having gorgeous and beautiful weather in Austin the week leading up to Meili’s graduation session. Then a cold front came through, and it dropped down the temps just enough to make a morning session chilly! Meili was such a trooper and brought the heat during her grad session. Meili graduated from St. Edward’s University in December of 2018, but she decided to wait until the Spring for her senior portraits. Meili really wanted to take photos among the gorgeous bluebonnets that fill the hills on campus. Graduating with a degree in communications, Meili is wrapping up a remote internship with IDEA Public Schools.

Meili chose to wear a bright floral dress with her cap and gown for the more formal side to her graduate session. The dress really popped under the darkness of the gown! For her second outfit, she chose to wear a leopard print skirt paired with a white tank and cowboy boots. Meili chose this outfit because it was what she wore to go two-stepping and she definitely showed her Texas pride wearing it for her bluebonnet photos!
