Sessions: Toafā Te‘o Grad Portraits

Sep 1, 2020Photography

Quick snaps of this beauty, Toafā Te’o, back in May to commemorate her high school graduation.

She actually attended high school in Kansas (thus the Skyhawks on her grad stole sash), and came back to visit American Samoa for a family gathering, but she got stuck here once the borders closed due to the COVID pandemic. She missed her graduation in the states, but her family here celebrated her all the same.

Congrats Toafā! Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors girl!
