It was a beautifully warm, sunny afternoon for Grafton High School student Olivia’s Senior Portrait session in Grafton MA, and we had a blast exploring our hometown and taking advantage of all of the golden hour goodness!

Olivia had an idea that she would like a few photos with her in the high grass, and suggested we try Tufts.  I loved the idea!  I’ve done a few shoots at tufts and have spent a bit of time exploring the property.  Before it was a vetinary college, it was a mental institution a century ago, and there are remnants of the old hospital that haven’t been touched since it closed down.  Driving to Tufts, we noticed a really cool field on the side of the road full of tufty milkweed, and made a not to return when the sun went down a bit.

At Tufts we started at the old cement grandstand for the athletic field, then headed up the the crumbly old hospital building.  The shady light and disrepaired river rock hospital building provided an amazing backdrop for Olivia’s first outfit, and she was ready for a costume change by the time we moved on.  Next we headed to the iconic red barn, where we found her high grass, as well as the striking textures of that building.  On to outfit number three and back to the milkweed field, the waning sun cooperated very well, casting a lovely late afternoon glow on the scene.  We finished the session at the abandoned bridge that gives Bridge Street its name. It was the perfect combination of amazing light and a fantastic model!
