High School Senior Parents…take note!✏️

If you are a parent of a High School Senior, I can only imagine the number of items on your fall “to-do” list! My head spins as I remember the lists I made in 2013 and 2016 when my daughters were seniors at Wellesley High School! I’m writing today’s blog to help you check off a few of those items (and maybe make your life a little less stressful in the process).

For 2 years I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Wellesley High School (and other nearby towns) seniors for their yearbook portraits. What fun I’ve had getting to know them as we chat together during their 30-45 minute session. I learn all kinds of wonderful things about them…their hobbies, pets, siblings, college dreams, best friends and even what side of their face they like best. What results from these casual and open conversations is a natural, happy and authentic portrait of your senior, one that can sometimes be difficult to get during those standard ‘big-box’ school photo sessions. My favorite portrait location is outdoors (my back yard, Wellesley Town Hall, Wellesley College, or your yard) with lovely late afternoon/early evening light. I also love soft window lighting and am adding an indoor studio to my options this fall. Continue reading

Yearbook Ads & Invitiations

greenwood-liz-inviteb“I’m clueless when it comes to designing anything on the computer.  A friend told me about Beth. What a gift.  Beth not only helped design my “parent page” for my son’s senior yearbook, she helped create his graduation party invitation.  Both were fabulous.  The best part however was working with Beth.  She is a perfectionist; professional, creative, quick and most of all a joy to work with.”  Liz G, Wellesley, MA

Senior Yearbook Ad, Stationery and Commemorative Pillow

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 10.29.39 PM

“Thank you, Beth, for everything! Your support of ideas brought to you has been wonderful. But those ideas were made especially great as you enhanced them with your creativity!! The “photo-sketch” note cards made from photographs of my graduating Seniors’ schools were certainly well received by teachers and staff as our thanks at Graduation! Appreciate so much the Raiders WHS pillow too – this was a very special gift! And I will recommend you to everyone for amazing Senior Ads for the WHS yearbook – your photography and composition made our Ad shine!”
