Class of 2021 | Belchertown Senior Portraits
Amid all the chaos of 2020, seniors are still graduating, juniors are becoming upperclassmen, and college is going forward, whether in person or online.
I've had the privilege of photographing a delightful group of seniors this year. Each has been smart, kind, and willing to put up with me asking them to fake tuck their hair behind their ears ten times.
Ben was my only boy this year so far! We did his shoot at Quabbin reservoir the day after a big storm and it was crazy seeing all of the fallen trees. We made the most of it and he was a great sport about being in front of the camera!
This was a special session because Amelia is my cousin! We did this shoot in our gram's yard and driveway, which is a beautiful spot year round.
It was nice to see my gram outside from a safe distance too. She's been hating not having as much company since Covid came!
We did Juliana's shoot at Quabbin as well but I decided to try out some spots I don't normally shoot at and the pictures came out so cool! We used the bridge and my favorite, a pull off area across from the dam that was covered in yellow wildflowers!
Lauren's shoot was at one of my favorite spots, Mt Pollux. We had the perfect golden afternoon light. She brought her boyfriend Kaden and we got some adorable pictures of the two of them together. I love when seniors bring their significant others or their pets or their parents to take pictures with during their sessions. It makes it even more special!
Gianna had a multi-day shoot at the Providence State House and Seabrook Beach in New Hampshire. We had so much fun getting glam for her prom dress pictures...and then doing a trash the dress set at the end of her beach shoot in the water!
She brought her boyfriend Ryan for some pictures as well as some of her friends. I had taken her friends Liv and Maci's senior portraits last year so it was a little reunion for me!
We did Norah's shoot at one of my new favorite spots, Red Fire Farm.
Norah requested a sunflower field for her portraits and that was the only one I knew of. We had to reschedule originally because the flowers weren't blooming yet and we wound up with the perfect day!
There were tons of flowers at the farm and it was so beautiful! We wound up getting there as the sun was setting, so I recreated that golden glow with off camera flash and it couldn't have gone better!
There was a stunning almost full moon by the end of the shoot!
Sara was the first ever senior to reach out and book her own senior portraits with me. I was so impressed! We had a great time doing her shoot at two locations- my alma mater UMass Amherst, and Mount Pollux.
At the end of the shoot Sara requested a photo with her mask on and it came out so cool! It's such a strange time we're living in and Sara wanted to document it.
We did Sophie's shoot at Mount Pollux. Sophie is a dancer so we had to get a couple shots of her in her tap shoes.
I am obsessed with the shot of her in the middle of the yellow flower field. I was like, man I wish we could get a picture of you in there but there could be ticks or poison ivy and she was like, I don't care! and ran right in! As far as I know she came out unscathed and we got some awesome pictures!
