WEB EXCLUSIVE Photographers filled the Belvedere section of the Main Hall today as the Senior Class took their senior portraits.

“This year we [used] professional photographers from [Mugsyclicks],” yearbook Editor-in-chief Giulia Oltranti said. “They try to use architectural aspects of the school to take photos so that’s why we are doing them in the Main Hall.”

The photographers instructed the seniors, dressed in business casual clothing, to stand in an assortment of poses.

“I like the variety of different poses,” senior Starnesia Hooper said. “I think the close-ups look nice, but the full body [photos] really capture the senior aspect of the portrait.”

For seniors such as Katie Thomis, the portraits are a way to commemorate their time at Convent.

“It’s nice to do this as seniors because it’s a great way to celebrate the last four years,” Thomis said. “It’s also [fun] to look back at the freshmen photos and see the difference.”

In addition to the photo’s incorporation in the yearbook, they will also be available for families to purchase later on in the year, according to Oltranti.

“The portraits are just a unique way to document the seniors throughout the years,” Oltranti said. “And it’s something that they can have with them forever.”
