Senior Portraits at Fan Pier Park with Boston Senior Portrait Photographer

Photographing senior portraits is always so fun for me. As a mom and a photographer, I love getting to hear these students’ stories, dreams, and goals for the next chapter of their lives. I also really enjoy creating sessions that are meaningful to my seniors, like this one. This senior was such a joy to work with! He loves all things real estate in Boston (thanks to parents in the real estate business!) so we chose a location that was chic and really showed off the architecture of the city. Fan Pier Park wound up being the perfect location for these senior portraits!

Fan Pier Park Senior Portraits

We were so lucky the day of his session because we had a beautiful warm sunset – in April!! The dramatic light between the buildings in the city looked amazing against his outfit. One of the reasons I love photographing seniors is because they’re so confident in front of the camera. This guy was definitely super cool about it all and super nice to me. I loved chatting with him.

He told me all about how much he loves lacrosse and is looking forward to attending Ohio State in the fall. I know he’s going to go on to do great things and I’m so happy I had the chance to work with him and document this huge milestone!
