Two years ago, my co-RA Danielle Veal crossed the line and joined the Kappa Omicron chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I was mystified and amazed at the raw emotion that she and her line sisters displayed at their probate. This year, the Deltas presented a new class of ladies. And on that line were two very dear friends, Jillian Griffith and Cheyenne Turner. I packed on my 7D and a telephoto and set to work. These are the resulting images. If you're unfamiliar with the Divine Nine, take this as a chance to educate yourself. The traditions of these Greeks are hallowed and rich in heritage. If you ever get the chance, attend a probate and cheer them on!
Delta ladies - I hope you enjoy these photographs. There are some very special moments here! If you're interested in prints or social-media-ready digital files, please use the contact box at the top of this page.
