Last year when the pandemic hit, my heart broke for the high school seniors here on the Seacoast. Proms were cancelled, graduations in masks with limited family able to attend and no end of year celebrations. The classes of 2020 and 2021 missed out on so much. One thing that we could still do to commemorate this important milestone was a Senior Portrait Session. Over the summer of 2020 I had the pleasure of documenting one of the most beautiful souls I have ever had the pleasure to know.
Natalee has a love of theatre, music, skiing, flowers and the color pink. I remember the pink part because a few years back at her Bat Mitzvah, I remember her saying she didn’t care about anything but her pink dress and the candy! Natalee was about to have major surgery on her jaw so we wanted to get her session before that. I knew Prescott Park would be a perfect location for her, between the flowers, the stage and the pier it was totally “Natalee”.
When meeting with seniors to plan the session, I always ask them what their vision is…most don’t really care. Not Natalee…she had her wardrobe all planned out and ready to go. Her favorite RED shirt against the beautiful gardens are some of my favorite. This fashionista really knows her stuff. At the reveal session, Natalee invited her best friend, parents and grandparents to preview her images. I will be honest when I say that I welled up a little watching them all see her looking so grown up. The little girl who was my neighbor many years ago is now and adult heading off to college and it has been an honor to watch her become such a beautiful woman. Both inside and out!
As a Portsmouth, NH Senior Photographer, I have been out scouting locations and it’s getting pretty out there! There are a few dates still available for those in the Class of 2021 who may have missed out. Class of 2022 – NOW BOOKING June, July, August & EARLY September. Yearbook deadlines are in early Fall so plan ahead!
