Detroit Senior Portrait Session

Gotta love a fun Detroit Senior Portrait Session!  The city has so much vibrant color and personality that it’s a great place for a Senior Portrait Session!  This gorgeous evening in July did not disappoint.  We started out at a parking garage.  Who knew they could be so picturesque?  I did ;).

I’m loving Detroit’s comeback.  Over the year’s I’ve spent a lot of time in Detroit and have always loved it.  It’s so great to go back and enjoy the expanded, vibrant areas.  I take my kids down there often so they can enjoy the city life as well.  Two years in advance Logan told me he wanted his senior portraits to be in Detroit and I’ve been looking forward to it, but not rushing it, ever since.

First of all, we walked around and checked out The Belt.  That is the awesome alley that runs along side The Z Garage.  When you are down there make sure you check out Campus Martius as it’s a great, lively area.  I look forward to checking out the new Beacon Park that is opening near DTE.

Colorful, lively Detroit!


I love all the angles and lines in these.  They are perfect for en engineering guy, like Logan.

While we were downtown we checked out this rooftop.  So many great views from up there.  Most of all we enjoyed the view from the top.  I just love these Shepard Fairey murals, so cool!  Have you been around Detroit to see them all?  You can see quite a few from and around The Z Garage.
