Jillian came down to Old Silver Beach from Clinton, MA for her session. Her family summers in Pocasset, so she wanted beach portraits. She brought the most perfect outfits with colors to go with the areas around the beach. And since I don’t photograph at Old Silver Beach that often, I was having a blast finding new areas. I was loving the colors so much I didn’t even want to do any black & whites! Here’s a sample of Jillian’s senior portraits:
As always, no seagulls were harmed during this portrait session.
My favorite Patriots player, Troy Brown, announced his retirement after playing for 15 seasons for the Patriots – the only NFL team he ever played for. I knew it was coming, and glad the rumors about him signing with the Jets didn’t come true (although they could have, but he said that it wouldn’t feel right wearing ‘green & white’.)
I was at the game where he set the Patriots records for receptions (557), and still proudly wear my #80 jersey during Pats games.
I think what endeared me to him was the commercials he did for United Way – remember the “Bingo! I got Bingo!” commercial?
He wasn’t a huge superstar – he was classy and humble and hard-working. It was fun watching him playing both offense, defense, and special teams – something almost unheard of in the NFL. His contribution played a big part in the Patriots’ Super Bowl wins. He epitomizes what I love about the Patriots franchise.
So long, Troy – thanks for the rings and thanks for the memories.
Troy is a Wide Receiver on the Plymouth South Football team. He opted to have his session at the beautiful beach in his neighborhood in Cedarville. His session was originally scheduled just a few weeks ago, but we had to postpone it due to a Mohawk. Apparently a lot of the football players got Mohawk haircuts before the first game of the season and, well, Troy forgot about his session the next day. That’s the best excuse I’ve heard yet for a postponed session – I just had to laugh! Luckily there was no sign of the mohawk here. I wish my bad haircuts would grow out as fast!
White Horse Beach in Manomet was the setting for Sarah’s senior portraits. She’s a senior at Plymouth North, where her favorite class is Chemistry. She wants to study food science at college.
I’m really loving the colors at the beach this time of year…from the goldenrod appearing in the beach grass in the dunes, to the spectacular sunsets. Here’s a peek at Sarah’s senior pictures:
Oh and a special thanks to Sarah’s sister – Emily – for her help!
Alison is a senior at Scituate High School. She’s on the swim team – her best event is the IM, which makes sense since she loves all the strokes equally. Here’s a sneak peek at Alison’s senior portraits:
She also brought Kali, her poodle. She’s so soft and fluffy and I can tell she just loves Alison.
Last night Brianna, her two friends, her mom, and her dog Brody came down from Middleboro for Brianna’s senior portraits. Brianna is in the cosmetology program at BPHS. Her favorite pastime is riding her horse. Here’s a sneak peek at her portaits:
Brody, a goldendoodle, is sooo cute! He’s still a puppy but look how big he is! And he was so protective of Brianna. Just a big loveable furbaby.
And more spectacular skies at dusk…
I had a great time photographing Matt. He’s a senior at Lexington Christian Academy. He’s a star basketball player being sought after by many college coaches. He’s now looking at offers from over 45 schools! Being the sports fan that I am, I could have listened for hours to his stories about all the championships he’s won. But I did have take some pictures as his yearbook picture is due, well, now. Here’s a sampling of Matt’s senior portraits:
Lately the skies have been spectacular just after sunset – you can see the colors reflecting in the water.
