Alison Reyes, a photographer and alumna of Los Gatos High School, was given the opportunity to photograph the graduates on their very special day in June. As a child, she grew up watching graduation ceremonies on the front lawn wishing to one day be a part of the festivities.
She never imagined she would have the chance to come back and document this rare and amazing event that many have to see to believe.
This year, Los Gatos High School graduated almost 500 students, so it was no surprise that the event was very well attended. All present cheered for the graduates as they were rallied by their peers throughout some of the most well-delivered speeches that were both entertaining and inspiring.
As the community, once again, gathered to celebrate these bright minds and future leaders,
the support and excitement could be seen and felt from each corner of the front lawn.
Alison was so honored to be a part of this truly wonderful event and hopes you enjoy the photographs of Behind the Scenes: Graduation Day 2010!
