UT Austin Senior Session: Elise + Kelby
I only took on one senior session for fall 2018 (huge mistake—I missed them so much!), so I knew I had to make my time on UT Austin’s campus count. Luckily, I had the best seniors ever; Elise and Kelby.
I met Elise at the first Womxn In Music ATX happy hour in February 2018 and we hit it off right away. Elise is a badass music industry babe who spent all summer in LA working for Panache, the booking company that reps iconic psych rock bands like King Gizzard and Lizard Wizard. (For all my non-music listening readers: yes, that is a real band name.) She returned to Texas to finish school and has been curating Womxn In Music ATX’s monthly newsletter (as well as making some sweet cocktails during our events) when she isn’t selling vinyl at End of an Ear.
Kelby and I met for the first time the day of our session—but it didn’t feel that way at all. Aside from being Elise’s fantastic roommate, she’s in a spirit group on campus at UT Austin called the Texas Infinites and we had a great time discussing hip-hop. Both ladies are born-and-raised Austinites and graduated from the Comm school at UT.
Our session really brought out the different personalities Elise and Kelby, especially because they were intentional with what they wore to the session. (Thank God, no “trash bag” graduation gowns to be seen!)
By the time the session was over were all ready to say to UT, “Thank U, NEXT!” Check out my faves from the session:
