Class of 2018

It’s time for the Class of 2018 to start scheduling their Senior Portraits! I had such a great time with my 2017 Seniors, that I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings. I did beach shoots, found myself in the woods of a nature preserve I’d never been to, and in the middle of a field in Duxbury – all with incredible, happy, fun subjects in front of my lens. What could be better?

So let’s see you Class of 2018! Book your session now for May-August and don’t let that yearbook deadline sneak up on you.

$200 includes:

  • A totally psyched photographer ready to capture who YOU are!
  • 1 location (rural or urban), 1 outfit change, 1 hour session

  • All proofs (lightly edited, with watermarks) of the session delivered via digital album within 14 days

  • Up to 10 final, retouched images (without watermark) delivered via digital album within 14 days of making your choices. (Additional editing requests welcome at $5 per photo.)

  • Print release provided so the images may be shared or reproduced at the will of the senior and their family.

  • A feature on my blog at www.marypolleysphotography.com.

 

 

 

What else?

  • Bring props! Sports equipment, musical instruments, hobbies, etc. We’ll work them into the session to really bring out your personality and interests.

  • Want to combine your session with a friend, cousin or family member? Tight-knit group of friends or teammates? We’ll book your sessions back-to-back so we can take shots of you together, while still getting that yearbook shot.

  • Interested in having your hair & makeup done for the shoot? I partner with a makeup artist & hairdresser to offer the total package… all you have to do is show up! Email me for pricing.

Molly – Berrybrook Fields, Duxbury, MA

My favorite season of the year is here, friends, and I got to usher out summer in the best way: Senior Portraits with this sweetheart of a young woman. Molly is a natural in front of the camera, and so much fun to work with. She’s got that casual hands-in-the-pockets pose DOWN, which is not as easy as it looks.

Molly is active in the drama program at Pembroke High and when she told me that I was so impressed. It’s one of the scariest things, getting up and performing in front of your classmates, but she loves it! I also thought to myself: goodie – this girl can giggle on command with the best of them.

I can’t get enough! I’m sad senior portrait season is winding down, because I’ve gotten to work with such fun young and inspiring men and women. When I get to hear them talk about what they love to do, it reminds me how simple passion can be. Keep following it, kids. I’m right there next to you.

Thank you, Molly, for letting me take these special photographs of you! I hope you have an amazing senior year.

Liam & Madison – Duxbury Beach

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot two seniors at once, cousins Liam & Madison! Liam will graduate from Dxubury High, Madison a rising senior at Plymouth South and we had a great time together. There were SO many photographers and seniors at Duxbury Beach with us that evening and with this scenery, you can’t blame us for all having the same idea.

We decided to make Liam go first, because well, guys are notoriously less interested in having their photo taken and have a much lower threshold for posing and smiling. It’s OK guys! We just get into those money shots right off the bat. Liam was a great sport, though, and just laughed at me when I asked him to walk back and forth and look off into the distance for those GQ shots. Guess what? I LOVE being laughed at in these sessions. Those real smiles make my day. We made Liam jump back in front of the camera as the sun was setting deep into Madison’s session and those are some of my favorites of him.

Then I had the beautiful Madison in front of my lens! This girl is a natural. Poised and graceful, she was a dream to photograph.

Major #hairenvy over here. Thank you both so much for a great evening of picture-taking at the beach! Best of luck in your senior year and beyond.

Lauren – Rexhame Beach, Marshfield MA

I love senior sessions! Last week I had the chance to shoot Lauren’s portraits and it was so much fun. She is so sweet, chill, and obviously beautiful – the perfect subject!

With my sessions I like to take the traditional portraits like you’d see in the yearbook, but also some lifestyle shots and candids. The session is about the yearbook photo, but it’s also creating an album that represents Lauren and that she and her family can look back on and remember this phase of her life. It also creates a gallery of photos that can be used for a lot of different things after Lauren goes to college and the yearbook hits the shelf. 

Lauren brought two ladies with her to the session, which I totally encourage, but they should be prepared to jump in at least a few shots. Jump in…. see what I did there?

Class of 2017!

I love meeting and photographing rising Seniors! There’s something really cool (are the kids still saying that?) about these sessions – where it’s really the last photo session before they go off to college or enter the workforce and become an entirely new version of themselves! And I learn some new, hip vocab, too. 🙂

Bring on the Class of 2017! Senior photo season is in full swing – so contact me to book your session soon!
