It’s More than a Yearbook Photo | Boston Senior Portrait Photographer

Click here to view my complete Senior Portfolio, and read all the details about your Senior Session options.

While your school probably arranges yearbook photos for every Senior, many Seniors don’t realize that (at most schools) you not only don’t have to go to that sitting, you also don’t have to use those photos in the yearbook. Some may wonder why they should have their photos done elsewhere when a “yearbook photo” is all set up for them already, but I promise you will be so happy that you did! The truth is, Senior portraits are SO Much more than a yearbook photo, and they are important to have! Enjoy these photos of gorgeous Meredith along with a few benefits of a Senior session tailored just for you.

Your senior portraits are a celebration of you

You have come so far and accomplished so much, and beautiful portraits that are unique to you are the perfect way to mark this milestone. A great senior portrait session can help boost your confidence and provide you and your family with (non-selfie/non iPhone!) photos that will be treasured keepsakes for years to come. Before I ever take a photo, I’ll provide wardrobe tips, we’ll discuss location options, and we’ll tailor the session just for you. I really believe in listening to my clients and that includes your ideas for photos, “poses” or anything else you want to share about your vision of your senior portraits.

We’ll use a gorgeous location and the best light we can find.

I have a huge list of beautiful locations, and we’ll work together to find the one that suits your style and personality. We’ll also do our session during golden hour and take advantage of the gorgeous end-of day (or beginning-of-day if you’re up for it) light that I love to look for and use during my sessions. This session took place at the beautiful Stevens Coolidge House and Gardens in North Andover.

You will have lots of options.

Even with my shorter, Simple Session, you will be amazed at how many images you’ll find in your proof gallery. You’ll find different poses, facial expressions, angles, backgrounds, and you’ll have plenty of options from which to choose the images in your package. With a Custom Session (or by adding more time to your Simple Session with a small fee) you even can change your outfit. It’s perfect if you can’t decide between a casual and a dressier look, or just want a couple of different styles in your photos.

I’ll make sure you know exactly what to do!

I honestly don’t like the term “posing” because I think a lot of Seniors worry that they’ll feel stiff and cheesy. My style is to gently direct you so that you don’t feel “posed” at all. If something feels or looks weird, we move on. I promise you will feel like a pro by the time the our session is finished.

You will have fun.

I can not tell you how many times someone has been nervous when they arrived, and then told me at the end of the session that they really had fun! I love to chat with my clients, and often it will feel like we are just hanging out. Before you know it, we’ll have covered a lot of ground at our location, trying different backgrounds and light, and you will go home relieved and feeling like you had a great time.
