Plum Island Senior Portrait Photography



Thanks to a pretty mild winter this year, the New England seashores have been fair game for senior and family portrait photography. Plum Island is always a favorite, with its quiet beaches, abutting cottages, and nearby bird sanctuaries. Miles of them. In fact, you’re likely to stumble upon more bird photographers on Plum Island than portrait photographers, at least this early in the year!

Despite a lingering chill in the air, this shoot is a good example of making a session work even when the shorts and sunscreen aren’t quite out yet. Bundle up with a few layers of clothing, sport a stylish jacket and scarf, and you’re ready to go. The light was warm and welcoming, and there were plenty of great opportunities for a memorable afternoon session.

Most of all, thanks to this motivated senior for braving the elements and working with me!

Downtown Haverhill Senior Portrait Photography



There was an extra sharp chill in the air that morning, along with a wind that wouldn’t quit, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying a successful senior portrait session this past February weekend. It’s a little too easy this time of year to stay indoors — so, much respect for this student who braved the elements minus a heavy coat and proved you really can shoot year round here in New England if you put your mind to it.

We staged our senior portrait session in Downtown Haverhill, making use of some of the uniquely industrial and historic brick buildings. This is what I love most about environmental portraits and lifestyle portraiture… exploring new surroundings, seeking out interesting textures and natural light, all the while encouraging the subject to be casual, comfortable, and not overly concerned with staying in one spot and posing.

Thank you for reaching out to me to work on your photography!
