CT Senior Portraits

Calista {Gunnery Senior, Class of 2017}

Meet Calista, a class of 2017 senior at the Gunnery.  Calista is involved in Crew and Skiing clubs at her school, and hopes to continue her education at Elon University studying marketing, communications and pre-dental.

Her favorite color to wear is blue, her wardrobe is pretty preppy, and she loves to shop at Hollister, Aeropastale, and small boutiques.

In her free time, you'll catch Calista watching Gossip Girl, Endless Love, Perks of Being a Wallflower and the Titanic.  She loves all music and enjoys reading the Cosmopolitan magazine.

If Calista could choose one word to describe herself, she chooses "Friendly."

Calista's dream photoshoot would be in Paris with an unlimited wardrobe selection. Her favorite quote:

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned in life: It goes on"

If Calista could change one thing about the world, it would be to find a cure for ALL terminal illness.

Her favorite colors to wear are Blue, Black and White - her wardrobe is primarily preppy.  She enjoys shopping at Forever 21, the Gap, Express and Target.  As far as fashion and trends, her she loves today's modern trends the best.

Bianca's favorite quote is: "Give God your weakness and he will give you his strength."

Bianca was a natural in front of the camera, and had a blast despite the misty weather rolling in.

We finished off her shoot at the waterside with her TWIN sister, Natalie.  How fun are these?!

Alex {Nonnewaug High School Senior, Class of 2017}

Meet Alex!  She is Anthony's twin sister (his post is just ahead of this one) and she is part of Nonnewaug High School's class of 2017.  She hopes to continue her education at either Marist or Stonehill studying either management or accounting.  Besides working hard on her grades towards graduation, Alex also plays (and is captain of) 2 varsity sports (field hockey and basketball).  She is also President of the DECA club which is geared towards business minded students. She loves the outdoors and participating in any activity that keeps her active.

Alex loves the color white, and her wardrobe is primarily preppy.  She loves to shop at Forever 21, Ann Taylor Loft, Department stores and boutiques. Her style goal for the session was to look very put-together.  She loves accessorizing with big bold necklaces and jewelry.  She has a pair of Jack Rogers sandals that she says never leave her feet.

Alex loves watching Greys Anatomy and Vampire Diaries (girl after my own heart!) She enjoys listening to Country music, her favorite movie is Harry Potter and her favorite magazine is People magazine.

Alex self defines herself as competitive. She was a little excited and nervous for her shoot - but loves being the center of attention and she totally rocked it!

Her dream photoshoot would be on the beach, decked in gorgeous preppy clothes.  Alex's favorite inspirational quote is: "Look for something positive each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder."  Rock on sister!

Zulie Dunn {Class of 2016}

Zulma--or Zulie as her friends call her, is a senior at Westover High School in Middlebury CT.  Zulie is extremely athletic, playing field hockey, basketball and softball!  I had the pleasure of watching one of her field hockey games this past fall :) She's also studied abroad which is what so many young woman could only dream of!  Not to mention she's very involved in her community and has even participated in several mission trips.

Zulie02Zulie09Zulie19Zulie16Zulie18I asked Zulie if she could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

She said,

"To realize that through active love, through the way in which all human beings are interconnected, we can see God's word is at work through all of us."


I also asked Zulie what her own personal definition of beauty is.  She told me,

"Beauty comes from within. It's the goodness of your heart and genuine care for others."
