Erin Parquette – 2019 Senior at Walpole High

Erin is a bright and talented 2019 senior at Walpole High who has a passion for contemporary dance. As you can see, she totally killed it at her session.




I’m so happy that she and her family chose me to photograph her Senior Portraits

Elizabeth’s Senior Session and her Smiling Eyes

Every person I photograph has a defining look and it’s typically centered on their eyes.

It’s true what Shakespeare once wrote “Your eyes are the window to your soul ”

Now this doesn’t mean that wide eyes or small eyes or blue eyes (or what ever) really show much of anything about someone. It is what we see when we look into one’s eyes .

Happy, smiling eyes. Amazed, surprised eyes. Sad, quiet eyes. Caring, nurturing eyes. These are the emotions we see, we feel and experience when we look into someones eyes .

A photograph captures a moment and holds it there for us to see and enjoy, now and for generations to come. So it’s important that we choose the image to print which  conveys that emotion that was felt when it was taken.

Elizabeth is a 2017 senior. Her eyes smiled in every image I took during her senior portrait session. I’m looking forward to seeing the prints from the day and hearing how they brighten the mood in the room where they are hung.



Caitlin and Joe – Tie the Knot – Take the Plunge – Make it Real – Busler

I’ve known Caitin for a few years and when she asked me to photograph her wedding – I was thrilled.
She is such a classy person, I knew that Joe would be too and I was right.
 The value of marriage hasn’t changed. It’s an expression of commitment. Not only to each other, but to your friends and family. Think about it, here you have two people that get engaged … then go through months or years of preparation for their Wedding Day and they still go through with it! All that stress – all those questions and suggestions and stress. 
But when you know it’s right, when you know that this person is right, that you will support each other and comfort each other – that you will be the ” strong one” – non-judgemental,
It’s actually an amazing day, but it’s not a magical day, the magic was there all along, this is the day of celebration.

I was recently told that I am a couple’s “Photographer for life”. Until today I didn’t realize what that meant – It’s not a job, it’s a responsibility – an honor and a mission to be there to capture their life.
Pretty neat!

Amber Stahl – Fluently French – Busler

I’ve actually know Amber for many years, so it was great that she asked me to do her Senior Portraits.
But I didn’t see her a lot during her Junior yesr because she spent it in France on a Student exchange.

What a confident girl. Our session was very classic as you can see.

It was a beautiful Fall day and we got some great shots.
I wish that I could type in Franch … becasue this would be a goood place to do it … but no,  I need Amber to assist me … HA! 

Kathryn Russo – Her Senior Session

Kathryn’s session was effortless. Everywhere we went, the images we got were great.

She has such a confident smile, but then she is the Captain of her cross country team, an A student … and a pretty neat person.

These images at the studio really do show the three sides of Kathryn – the smile

the graceful

and of course … “don’t mess with Kathryn” ! It was an awesome session.

Cianne Maloney – Her Senior Session

Cianne’s session was a joy. She is a fine actress and a very funny lady.
We started our session at her home. All I heard for weeks was that we would shoot the location shots in her backyard. You see, Cianne’s family has this awsome backyard … a river (OK a stream) runs through it, there are great trees, a little pond full of jumping frogs and a trampoline . I was this close to shooting some images of Cianne on the trampoline … but that would have been to easy. HA!

But there is also a sort of “dog compound” ; a fenced in area with doors and trees and “stuff” .. so of course I told Cianne … that where we are going to do some shots! I asked …

What a comfortable smile – it made the images perfect

Kristen McCarthy – The Senior Session

Kristen’s session was full of smiles and style. I usually take a few minutes to ask where they would like to be photographed … the park, an alley setting … their backyard? Kristen just replied ” you choose” … HA! I usually do!

This outfit – a “man’s cut” shirt with the sleeves rolled up over a pretty summer dress didn’t at first look like it would work … that was until I saw Kristen wearing it. Perfect, she was so relaxed and the poses were beautiful.

We did start our session at the park – trees, stone walls and the GREAT OUTDOORS!

Then it was off to the studio. Kristen had just been to the salon and her hair was just beautiful, with streaks of blond and brown. So I had to do some overprocessing to really bring out the tones … maybe I did just for me… HA!

I usually ask the girls for a “pensive pose” … one comment she got was “Texting again!” … yea I guess … If she is texting- I hope she is writing ” I’m having such a GREAT time ! Dan is fabulous ” Hey , it could happen.

MIT Resonance – a Cappella

Everyone knows that MIT is a “buttoned down” think tank for nerds … right? Well I beg to differ with that notion. The MIT Resonance a Capella group proves it… the kids from MIT can sing and dance ! Here’s a look at the group when they performed as one of the featured performers at Norwood High School’s A Capella Night.

The Amherst Bluestockings

The girls from Amherst College aka The Bluestockings were one of the featured performers at Norwood High School’s “A Cappella Night” about a week ago. It’s seems that I am always in the dark at these events … trying to get the shot, waiting for their nose to come out from behind the microphone … with just a second I try to capture a smile, etc.
Sometime I succeed.
