Mixing It Up

Here’s a few selections from a recent studio session for a high school senior. It was hard to pick out portraits for the blog because I had so many favorites. I think his Mom did too! The one good thing about studio is we can mix it up a bit with casual outdoor, formal indoor and as well as working on  some themed images which is great for musicians and sports students. It was a pleasure to photograph this young man and learn about his interests and college plans. I was very impressed with his dedication to his studies and music and I wish him all the very best for his final year at school.

High School Senior Session

Fun session with this high school senior done before the madness of back to school got going. I really liked one of her clothing choices as shown in these portraits. The crochet/lace pattern gave some extra detail and texture with out it being in any way distracting. I am looking forward to receiving the families selections for the yearbook portrait and prints!


Mini-sessions for 2014 Seniors


It’s been good to get going with this years senior sessions. We have our standard full sessions available but starting in September we are also offering limited weekday mini sessions for yearbook portraits. These sessions are great for those students who have a hectic schedule ahead or do not want to spend time on a full photo session.

So what’s involved? You’ll need to come on over to Littleton in your outfit of choice for a half hour shoot. We take the photos, provide you with an online mini gallery of portraits to view and then prepare your portrait of choice for the 2014 yearbook. You get a 5×7 print of the portrait too as well as a copy for your Facebook page. Cost $95. All are welcome to purchase additional prints but no minimum print order is required for these sessions.

Interested? Send Jane an email and she’d be happy to give you more information including session availability.

Setting Records


When HS seniors come along for a portrait session I always suggest they bring something along or plan one outfit that refelects a hobby or sport that’s important to them. I’m sure you can guess where this young man’s interest lies. From our conversation during the session it was very clear that he’s very dedicated to both his studies and his Varsity sport.  I want to congratulate him and his high school Varsity basketball team for yesterday winning the Clark University 2013 Tournament. This is the first time in the 74 year history of the tournament that Littleton High School has won it. Way to go!

Hello Again

It was great to meet with this young man again for his high school senior portraits recently. I had first met his family for a late fall group portrait session a couple a years ago. I worked on some other portraits with him last year too. It was easy to pick up the conversation where we left off from last time. I like to talk a lot at my high school senior sessions. Actually I like to chat away at any session unless we are trying to keep a newborn asleep. For the teens it’s a good way to get them feeling relaxed and makes for an easy going session. If I don’t know anything about the teens who come and meet me I like to find out some information on what interests them before the session.


High School Senior

Here’s a quick look back at a high school senior session held last month and I’m missing the Fall color already! This was a fun session with lots of portraits to choose from. I hope this young lady has  great final year at school.

We are now right into winter landscapes and temperatures. We will still be holding shortened outdoor sessions as long as temperatures hold up enough to be out in nature without feeling too cold. Outfits need to be planned for the weather though!


In luck with the light.

It was a pleasure to meet this young lady recently. I photographed her older sister previously. We had some fantastic evening light for the session in a couple of locations, pure gold light for the golden hour. The golden hour is when there light is at it’s best for photos. Sometimes though the golden hour is a short 15 minutes, depending on the time of year. Often the light is not that golden either. Cooler evenings make the light seem more blue and cold. You just have to go with what nature deals you. We got dealt a very good hand for this particular evening!  I had quite a few favorites from this shoot and it was tough to select for the blog. I wish her the very best for college next year.




Talk Of The Town

I so enjoyed this session although it went on longer than usual. Generally the guys coming in for senior sessions prefer to get the photos over and done with as quickly as possible. With this in mind I suggested that the younger brother come along for some photos as well. They were both so easy going we went through the regular session time and then some too. They were such  good sports for staying until dark. It was also great spending some time with students from my own kids school district and talking about some familiar town/school subjects including sport and band. I was extremely impressed with this high school senior’s commitment to school issues including fundraising for the band.  I am sure he is going to be very successful in his future years.


Senior Season

It’s really nice to be in full swing with high school senior sessions this month. I love talking to the little ones, I really do! However now and then it makes a wonderful change to have some adult talk with those in front of the camera. This girl was one such person with some rather terrific portraits to go with the conversation!





Two Sisters


 It was great to have these two sisters in for a mini portrait session recently. We had a fun time all round and some fantastic portraits. Mini sessions are ongoing at the studio through March.
