I had to get my boys out for annual portraits as the year was coming to a close. Photo-shoots, generally, aren't as fun for them as the girls, so any shots I get are gold. I have 6 sons of all different ages and personalities and it was a fun challenge to try and capture them all.
My oldest is 29 and the youngest is 5! Here they are in age order.
Evelyn is a frequent model for me as most who follow my work will notice. She is a willing, natural model and her sessions bring a lot of variety and interest. This fall, she needed some professional portraits for an album cover and website as she is producing her own music! She is a singer, songwriter, and plays the guitar and records and her whole family is involved with her music. For this session, we had just one day to get everything she needed. She chose a remote spot by a pond that is accessible via a hike through the woods. She, originally, was looking for more moody shots with an overcast, sky, but that was not to be. On the contrary, we arrived at our destination with the sun high in the sky and smack-dab in our faces! After contemplating the situation, I was able to find some choice spots with nice light and lovely setting. These challenges help me with problem-solving and creative editing. I just love the pretty light and results. I am honored to have been chosen for the task of taking Evelyn's promotional portraits and am pleased to share some of the results!
Alex was my last Senior of the fall for the Class of '17 and a student at our local high school, Stevens High. I met with him and his parents downtown for some small-town "urban" shots with his guitar and then head over to a local park and airport. This family was full of great ideas and Alex was a relaxed, willing model. It's always nice to have the parents at the session for input and guidance so that I know exactly what shots they are looking for.
Here are my favorites for Alex, Class of '17!
So fun to take our last photos at the local airport -- a first for me!
Another school year is ending and it just flew by for us! My baby started Kindergarten this year, so I had to get him out for a few shots to commemorate this special time. I can't believe he is my last little one, which makes this session even more special for me.
Of course, the older kids cannot be ignored, so here is the whole gang!
In spite of my passion for it, not a lot of my children are avid readers -- maybe this little guy will break the mold?
He often brings me little flowers and trinkets -- a mommy's boy for sure! He sure is precious to me.
Nick, Class of '17 | Claremont Christian Academy ~ Claremont, NH | New Hampshire Senior Photographer
It's hard to believe that these kids are graduating soon! We've known Nick's family for several years now and he is the 2nd son (in a family of 5 boys) that I've taken Senior portraits for. For this session, Nick and his mom found a nice spot in a rural area in Vermont for some unique portraits. Nick was pretty relaxed and has a natural, easy smile, so that made my job easy! Nick is a young man with a lot of ambition, including entering the nursing profession and working for an ambulance company. I appreciate his go-to attitude and was honored to capture this special time for him.

This was a very special session for me. Emily is my husband's, cousin's daughter, so she is family! He does not have a lot of close relatives, so not many opportunities like this and I'm thrilled that they were happy to use me for Emily's Senior portraits.
Emily goes to school in Vermont and made the trek a bit north to take portraits by a beautiful lake and covered bridge. We wanted to incorporate all-things-New-England-girl into her sessions, as well as showcase her personality and interests. She is quite the athlete! I haven't taken archery portraits before and loved them among the glorious fall setting. She is also a runner and, though it was quite chilly that day, she braved it all to wear her school uniform.
Emily is a sweet and natural model and I just adore what we got! Here is Emily, Class of '17!
Nicholas is a student at Stevens High School. He is a football player and it was a lot of fun to incorporate the sport into his Senior portraits. We made the most of the local scenery and even included his car in a few shots! It's fun to personalize Senior sessions and make each one unique. I appreciated his willingness to try a few of my ideas as well and I think we got some nice variety! Here are some favorites of Nicholas, Class of '17!
Madeline is a Vermont Senior at Springfield High School. I greatly enjoyed her sense of fun and spunk and her personality really showed through in her portraits. We started out at an old churchyard in Weathersfield and ended up at the local apple orchard. We were blessed with beautiful weather and light and ended in a fun, fall setting. Madeline is also quite an artist, so I was thrilled to incorporate that love into the photos as well.
Here is Madeline, Class of '17!
