East Carolina University Senior Portraits | Brittany Lewis | Melody Gillikin Photography

It was such a blast going to East Carolina University yesterday to take Brittany’s senior photos.  She has worked so hard these past four years to complete her undergraduate degree in Public Health and Pre-Dentistry.  She wants to be a Dentist and graduating 10th in her class with top honors, I am sure that she will have no issues at all achieving her goals.

I travel all the time for photography, and I love it.  I get to see new places and experience new things in addition to creating wonderful memories for my clients.  I photographed Brittany’s  senior portraits when she graduated from East Carteret High, NC. 4 years ago and she was beautiful then and has grown into a beautiful confident young woman, who knows what she wants.

Congratulations Brittany on your huge accomplishments!  ECU was blessed to have you!

I was told that the Cupala is something that no undergraduate walks through because the legend is that if an undergrad walks through it you won’t graduate when anticipated….guess what I was probably the ONLY person to ever walk through it LOL…since I am pretty sure I will never graduate from ECU. 🙂

We walked around to every gate and asked two people to please let us in for just 10 min so we could grab a few photos in the purple bleachers, after two “no’s” we finally asked the right person well, he asked us.  Coach Conners, the strength training coach for the ECU football team watched us walk by the workout room for a third time and popped his head out and asked us if we couldn’t find anyone to let us in, we said ….nope but could you?  He thought for moment…and said “make it quick” and we did!  Thanks Coach!

Right by the stadium was this beautiful train track…in beautiful light!  We took full advantage of it…She was so beautiful people were staring and for good cause!

Running out of light we went uptown to finish off our night and found some pretty cool places!

Thank you once again, Brittany, for allowing me to document this special time in your life!

I look forward to other big events to come!
