Tween Teen photo session in Detroit, Rochester photographer

Hey, a little late but what can I say, here is my Tween Teen photo session in Detroit with my kids!  I do make sure I take the time to do sessions with my kids at least once a year though!  This year we went to Detroit for the day.  I had been shooting at some cool spots that I thought my kids would enjoy.  We took them by the old train station.  I’ve been enamored by the place for years.  I used to love when the downtown in-line skating routes would take us by this old gem.

From there we went to the Z Garage.  I love all the different murals on every level.  It was so great to go to a place that even catches the attention of my teen age boys.  The boys each picked a spot that fit their interests and personality.  My daughter had fun too but I think the nature and small town sessions are more her thing.

Fun Detroit Photo Session – complete with out-takes!


And here is the one that made it to the wall!  I cherish the wall art of my kids and enjoy looking at them, past and present.  Boy, those years go fast!

    What a great tween teen session. You’re so lucky your kids will let you take them out for a session in Rochester. My kids run from the camera. Hoping when they hit the tween stage they might change their stance 🙂 ReplyCancel

    These are great tween and teen portraits of your kids!  This is an age that I am so unfamiliar with and kinda scared when I have to photograph them. You have done a wonderful job using the Detroit skyline as the backdrop.ReplyCancel
