Senior Megan Mullins listens to the photographer instructing her how to pose for her senior yearbook portrait in the Mother Williams Library. The photos were moved to the library due to the Christmas trees set up in Belvedere where the photos originally were going to take place.

WEB EXCLUSIVE Convent & Stuart Hall seniors wearing cashmere sweaters and blazers posed for yearbook portrait photos over the past two days that will be featured in the joint yearbook.

In previous years, Très Bien, Convent’s yearbook, featured a full-page lifestyle portrait for each senior with a personal written narrative.  

“Since we are combining the yearbooks into one 300-page book for Convent & Stuart Hall, we needed more space to get more coverage for both divisions,” editor in chief Emily Kanellos said. “We will still be including the events students participated in throughout high school underneath their photo.”

Seniors could take yearbook portraits at either the Pine-Octavia or Broadway Campus.

“It was super convenient to have the option to take the photos at either campus,” senior Poppy Cohen said. “A lot of us have many classes on both campuses.”

Many students, like senior Maggie Walter, opted to take the optional lifestyle portrait, available only at the Broadway Campus.

“We walked to different locations around the school, like in the main hall and outside to take the photos,” Walter said. “It was fun to pose around. The photographer made me feel super comfortable.”

MugsyCl!cks, the photography company, provided the attire for the yearbook portraits, but students were free to wear casual or formal dress for the lifestyle portraits.

“Sophie Mack, my co-editor in chief, and I decided that seniors would take their pictures in black cashmere v-neck sweaters because they complement the boy’s traditional tuxedos well,” Kanellos said. “We want the yearbook to be cohesive.”
