A closer look at 2015

Despite knowing when and where I’m going to be photographing at Missouri S&T, I still don’t always know exactly what I’m about to see. Research and planning can play a big part in executing a portrait, but capturing the unanticipated and authentic moments of a photo shoot are what truly make it special.

In her first semester, LaRue-Hill stepped out of her comfort zone and decided to participate in the Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant hosted by Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
