Rochester Michigan Senior Portrait Session

Rochester Michigan Senior Portrait Session

We had a beautiful night for a Rochester Michigan Senior Portrait Session with Carolyn!  I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Carolyn before and knew she would totally rock her senior portrait session.  I mean just check out the first shot of the session, the first photo below.  WOW!  I’ve known Carolyn for most of her life and it has been great watching her grow up into the fine young women she is today.  She is sweet, smart, caring, quick to smile and a while lot more.  I look forward to seeing what the future holds for her.

For Carolyn’s session we walked around her hometown of Rochester.  We checked out the town, complete with a friendly 😉 visit from a police officer then we stopped at the Clinton River trail and she sat along, and in (on rocks) the river.  After that we took a quick trip back by the library along the Paint Creek Trail.  We covered all the hometown highlights!

It’s probably time to share some of her photos, right?!?

Congratulations to another fine graduate!  We went to downtown Rochester for Dominick’s senior portraits.  Dominick is a kind, hardworking and smart guy.  He’s good at math and has an artistic side as well.  I look forward to seeing what he does in the future.  He put up with my corny jokes so he’s really a good sport too!  Spring is a great time for Senior portraits in Rochester Michigan.

Towards the beginning of his session we thought we’d borrow a red sports car for him…  The owner was happy to oblige, or at least we thought they would be!

Just check out his eyes, and that great smile!

After hitting some spots in town we went to the park and checked out some great spots along the river.  To photograph the spot on the rock steps I had to go across the bridge to the other side of the river and rely on hand motions to communicate with Dominick over the sound of the rushing water.  It’s amazing he’s not dying laughing instead of just rockin’ his smile here.

I’m so glad they chose me for Dominick’s senior portraits and they they will have these images, and more, to cherish for years.  Uh oh, there I do getting sappy.

We all had so much fun at this Teen photo session with skirts in Detroit!  We glam-ed it up for a fun photo session in Detroit.  I knew the marble steps at the DIA would be the perfect place for these lovely young ladies, all dressed up!  We stopped in for blow-outs at the Capelli Salon in Rochester.  Then we grabbed some skirts and headed downtown Detroit on a beautiful early summer evening.  We had so much fun picking new spots and sharing some laughs.  These girls have known each other all their lives.  It was fun to commemorate their friendship and their upcoming start of high school with this fun photo session.  Before we left the DIA and headed to Eastern Market they did some twirling in front of the arches.  I’ve got more to share as I also did separate portraits for each of the girls so check back in soon.  I wish I could have done this with my friends when I was a teen!

What a year!  SAT/ACT, AP classes, the school play, Homecoming, Prom,…  Senior Year is so exciting with some big events  and some very special ‘last’s too.  One memory that should shine through as a true highlight should be your Michigan Senior Photography!

Michigan Senior Photography with Personality!

I strive to provide Senior Photography that is a great experience from the beginning by proving lots of great information, like our Senior Magazine (below).  This helps to answer a lot of questions.  Through the process we have a lot of communication.  Your senior can start by filling out our session questionnaire to help us get to know the a little better and help us plan the perfect session.  When your session is booked you will also receive access to your own Client Portal.  This is where you go for all your information, from emails to forms. No more searching through emails for bits of information.  It’s all laid out and organized at your finger tips.  Soon we’ll talk more about session locations and what to wear.  I do a lot of location scouting so I’ve got a lot of great places in mind.  I love to explore new places as well. Your portal will also have more tips on preparing for your session.

Session days are a lot of fun!  Bring along some fun music for the car, we can even bring it along with us if you want!  We’ll head to our planned locations and we usually find new spots along the way.  Bring along a few outfits, relax and come ready for fun!

After your session we’ll meet to view a slideshow from your session then go through the images individually.  This way we can sort them and you can select your favorites.  I offer many great products.  With an album you can take your images with you to share at family get-togethers and also view them at home to take a trip down memory lane any time you want!  There are also wall art options to choose from.  Maybe a metal print is the best way for you to show off a great city shot, or a canvas would look perfect in your home.  There are also folio boxes which you just have to check out.  This way your can have your prints beautifully matted for protection with repeated handling and display one or a few at a time.  And when your busy spring time arrives there are custom announcements/invites and thank you notes to select.  This will free up your time for celebration planning!

Here is the pArt of Life Photography magazine and don’t forget to check out other images in our Senior gallery.

Before I go on too long I wanted to share just a few of the great finds for Senior Portrait and Business Headshot sessions.  I thought the mustard tank would be prefect under a jacket.  And the blue blouse would show just the right amount of personality for some professional headshots.

And how cute are these for a senior portrait session?  The grey sleeveless top is perfect alone or with a simple jacket!  I love the colors and prints in the top too.  And isn’t that romper fun with the right amount of flair?  Scarves are a fun accessory with so many great ways to use them.  And check out all the cute t-shirts and jewelry – so many great choices.
