I am so excited to share Elise’s gorgeous Massachusetts beach senior pictures with you all! For Elise’s senior pictures, we began in an area with tall grasses. Elise wore a gorgeous white dress, which I absolutely adored because it reflected beautiful white light back up onto her skin! After we took pictures in the grasses, we moved to the water and took pictures against the backdrop of the beautiful sunset.

How to Choose a Location for your Senior Pictures
As you can see, beach senior pictures are an AMAZING idea for your senior portraits!! But as an experienced photographer, I have seniors ask me to take photos in all sorts of different places! Many seniors want to take their pictures at the beach, and some opt for more of a field and tall grasses option. Another option is an urban, downtown setting! The list is endless! I recommend choosing a package that offers TWO locations, such as my Sand Dollar Package. Having two locations give you such amazing variety in your pictures. You get different types of lighting, and tons of different backgrounds.
Floral Locations for Senior Pictures
Many of my clients ask to do their pictures in a flower-y location. I have several beautiful spots I love for pictures with flowers! It can always be fun to try new and different places too! I obviously love flower field senior pictures, they give you so many beautiful colors in the background.
Beach Locations for Massachusetts Beach Senior Pictures
As I mentioned, beach locations are very popular for senior pictures where I live! While I love field senior pictures, I also LOVE beach senior pictures! There are several beaches nearby where I live that I love to go.
Urban Locations for Senior Pictures
I LOVE taking pictures in a downtown location. This isn’t a very common ask from my seniors, but once in a while I get to do it! Brick walls, white columns, fountains, windows, stairs- these elements are the makings of amazing pictures!!
Field Locations for Senior Pictures
If you’re looking for less flowers and more FIELD, pictures in a field are stunning!
What to Wear for Massachusetts Beach Senior Pictures
If you want to have your senior pictures taken at the beach, I recommend wearing soft neutral colors. Neutral colors will reflect a beautiful color onto your face, and will go with any color the sunset throws at us! If you’d like to wear jeans for your pictures, I suggest a light color. My favorite thing to wear would be a sundress or a long flowy dress. Long flowy dresses are so beautiful in pictures! This is because long flowy dresses or skirts can add movement and all sorts of fun poses to your pictures.
