Senior Portraits at Boston Public Garden with Harvard Business School Graduate

I absolutely love photographing senior portraits, especially when they’re for college graduates. These sessions often become family portraits AND senior sessions. It makes everything even more meaningful as we celebrate the newest graduate here in Boston. These senior portraits at Boston Public Garden were like that. The newest graduate finished his coursework at Harvard Business School, and his extended family came in to celebrate! We planned a session in one of the most beautiful spots in the city for all of them.

Senior Portraits at Boston Public Garden

To celebrate, everyone flew in from Michigan to get together and celebrate their Harvard grad! We had a great time talking about their trip and the fact that they’re from Ethiopia originally. I loved getting to know this family. He as three siblings, all married with children, so it was exciting to have everyone in one place and update their family photos!

We lucked out with a beautiful day for this session, and while the gardens were busy, they weren’t as crowded as my last senior session here – so I was grateful for that! I hope you enjoy looking through these senior portraits at Boston Public Garden, and don’t forget that if you’re graduating, it’s never too early to think about your own session!
