Detroit Teen Photo Session

I am so proud of a Detroit Teen Photo session / photography project that I took part in, in June!  We did this session as a way to bring more awareness to bullying and treat these girls to a very special day in the process.  Each girl was involved due to having had a rough time with bullying.  It was so nice to see them all bond and enjoy the special treatment!  Who can’t use another reminder of how special they are?!  I had so much fun working along with my friends Stephanie of LemmonMade Photography and Brandie of Brandie Pahl Photography.  Stephanie and Brandi did most of the photo session concept, working with each of the girls to highlight their uniqueness.  We started with tulle skirts and t-shirts and each girl brought her own style and flair!  My pre-session job was doing some research on some great spots in Detroit.  Since I used to in-line skate all over Detroit it was the perfect job for me!  I lined up some spots to check out and Stephanie and I did some ore-session location scouting.  After hair and make up at Salon Blue in Lake Orion we were good to go…  We decided to start the session in Eastern Market!  Thanks to all the girls and their parents for coming along on this adventure with us!

I’ll have more photos of our next destination, the Campus Martius area, soon!

I love how we had time with each girl to let her personality show.  It was so great getting to know a bit about them all!

Wasn’t Eastern Market the perfect backdrop for these stylish girls!

I love bringing the style of Detroit into my photo sessions.  If you are interested in a family, teen of high senior photo session in Detroit just let me know.  I’ve got a lot of cool places that I like to go!

    Can I just say how much I LOVE the concept for this teen photo session? I was bullied myself and wish I could’ve done something like this when I was a teen!! The photos are awesome! I especially adore how you get a good feel of each girl’s personality & style, even when they’re in the same type of outfit…the shoes & accessories shine through! So many amazing Detroit locations that you were able to use for this, too. I’m sure the girls all had a BLAST!ReplyCancel

    Wow, this is so amazing. What you have done for these girls is such an amazing thing. They all look so beautiful, you can truly see such a great personality in all of them. What an amazing way to boost their self esteem. These girls walked away with not only realizing their beauty and happiness but one amazing group of friends. This Detroit Teen session is un-like any other, and has one powerful message. Beautiful work!!ReplyCancel

    The photos are GORGEOUS! Almost as gorgeous as the young ladies in them! I love the message you’re sending with The Detroit Teen Project. Such a great way to give back to your community and spread a positive message against bullying. You knocked it out of the park on choosing this location! The graffiti wall is absolutely amazing!!ReplyCancel
