Norwich Free Academy 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.

Bianca {Nonnewaug High School Senior Portraits, Class of 2017}

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!

Anthony {Nonnewaug High School 2017 Senior}

Meet Anthony!  This handsome young man is a senior at Nonnewaug High School, and will be graduating this year!  Go Class of 2017!  He hopes to attend UCONN in the fall while focusing on his education in the medical field.  While in school, he spends his spare time playing golf, soccer and basketball - and also enjoys hanging out with friends and "being dope" <-- his words! :)

Anthony (nick-named Tuna) wears primarily athletic clothing, although he prepped up for us during his shoot.  His favorite color is blue, and you can see that with most of the outfits he chose!  If you asked him what his favorite tv show is, currently he'd tell you it's Breaking Bad.

Oh- and he has a sense of Humor... while mom was putting together his outfits for the shoot, he casually and sneakily tossed in this Americana shirt.

Anthony enjoys listening to Pearl Jam which is rather impressive considering that's from another generation!  His favorite movie is Animal House, and so far his favorite book as been The Great Gatsby.

On a more comedic note - when asked what his dream shoot would be like, he said "Ladies by my side." He also threw in that he'd love to do the pose from Titanic when Rose was laying on the couch while Jack sketched her... we didn't do that, but I was tempted!

I like to ask my seniors what they would do if they could change one thing about the world.  I usually get some very deep emotional responses, but in Anthony's usual persona, he simply said he wanted to get rid of all the mosquitos.  I couldn't agree with him more!  Why do they even exist??


One last fact - Anthony is a TWIN.  His gorgeous sister, who is also on our blog (we reserved her own separate page) joined us for the shoot.  

Keep an eye out for more senior portraits coming soon in the South Eastern tip of Connecticut!
