I work with Aaron's mom so I was really excited to be able to take his senior portrait. He is just months away from making Eagle Scout, which is such an honor. I loved being able to take his yearbook portraits! Congrats!
We took advantage of the blue skies and warm temperatures in May to do some senior photos for these great kids! The three of them are graduates of Cranston West and off to URI and New England Tech in the fall. They had a great relationship with each other and laughed from start to finish. Best wishes to you all as you start this new chapter!
Kara is my son's babysitter, as well as the daughter of a colleague. I just love her sweet, fun nature as well as her desire to have her senior photos done in her uniform! Kara is an "Ette" which is a dance team at her high school. As she enters her senior year, she's also entering her second year as an Ette and wanted to make sure her photos captured her in her red and white. I had a lot of fun with this session because, I too, am a Cranston West alumni and while I wore the red and white, it was for the band, not the dance team. I wish you a wonderful senior year, Kara!
Connie, Alicia's grandmother, is my library volunteer extraordinaire. She was my cooperating teacher when I student taught and I owe much of my career to her. When she asked me about doing Alicia's senior portraits, I was thrilled. I really wanted them to be easy and laid back for Alicia because she is shy. We stuck to one small location but were able to walk away with some really nice shots. I wish you lots of luck in the fall Alicia. I'll be hearing all about it from Gram ;-)
Kelly is an all around sweet and pretty girl and Kate's go-to babysitter. She just finished her senior year at my alma mater, Cranston West, and is off to college in the fall. I was thrilled to run into her mom at a baby shower and she inquired about senior photos. She said she knew it was late for them but they wanted something beyond the ones taken for the yearbook. Her outfits and smiles were adorable. I wish you the best of luck in the fall, Kelly!
Nina's mom described her in her email as artsy, creative and fun. She was all three of those things and more. She brought her friend along and the three of us had a lot to talk about. The girls take photography in school so I think that Nina had a natural inclination to pose in just the right way. When I suggested some offbeat, run-down mill buildings, she was all about it! I like it when a session can take a turn for the unexpected (and I was even more excited about the end result with the sun flare!) Nina- I wish you a wonderful, fun senior year. *On a side note- I'm noticing my galleries do not view properly in Internet Explorer. Try using Firefox for the ease of scrolling through each photo.
Abbey had the genuine beauty that makes a portrait so easy to photograph. She took direction with ease, had perfectly coordinated outfits and was open to suggestions about what to do and how to pose. She will soon be beginning her senior year and is excited about all the wonderful things in her future- the prom, college visits and all the sports teams she plays for in the fall and spring. I wish you the best in all you do Abbey!
