Rochester Stoney Creek High School Senior

Rochester Stoney Creek High School Senior

Ah!  This Rochester Stoney Creek High School Senior portrait session was so fun!  Katie, is so sweet and sooo beautiful!  This fall has been crazy in Michigan.  We have had more than our fair share of rainy week-ends.  For Katie’s session we had sun and it was only a little chilly – fall perfection!  We started the session in Eastern Market.  We had talked it over during the session planning and it seemed like the perfect fit since the place has a great personality and style. We explored together and checked out a variety of murals.  We also found the most beautiful alley, streaming with sunshine with walls adorned with ivy.  Our second spot was the waterfront, along the Detroit River.  The sun was starting to set over the city making the backdrop even more beautiful.  We rushed into downtown to catch the last light at The Belt then went up to the top of the Z Garage for a gorgeous twilight.  I love that time when the sky still glows and the lights turn on in the city.

During high school senior session consultations people often ask for recommendations on where to shop.  I love sharing shopping tips and always recommend 4th Street Boutique in Rochester.  That is where Katie got the gorgeous gold sweater for her portrait session.

Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan

Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan

It’s Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan!  My daughter went to her first homecoming dance at Stoney Creek High School.  I thought I’d share a few tips I learned along the way!

Besides dress shopping don’t forget to make your hair and nail appointments.  For dress shopping I thought Nordstrom had good prices.  My daughter’s dress was around $100.  Of course, you could spend a lot more if you have the budget.  Another spot is Camille La Vie at Great Lakes Crossing.  From what I hear seniors tend more towards long dresses and young girls tend to wear shorter dresses, but of course it may trend differently at your school.  Don’t hesitate to try on something you think might not work, as you might be pleasantly surprised.  Don’t forget to wear it around the dressing room a bit and make sure it’s comfortable to sit in.  Move around and make sure it doesn’t just look good when you are standing straight.  No one wants to be tugging at their dress all night.  Don’t forget a simple clutch.  We found ours at DSW.  A long strap is nice for when you want to be hands free.  The strap on the one we bought tucked away easily.  For shoes don’t go too high.  And be prepared to go barefoot in the gym so bringing a nice pair of low socks that just cover the bottom of your feet is a great idea.

Clear your homecoming day and relax and have fun!  Hair appointments can take more time than you think so leave plenty of time in your schedule.  A stressed and rushed day is no fun!  A good choice right in Rochester is Ruby and Clover.  Freshly manicured nails are a nice treat for feeling really special too!

Before you know it, it will time to dress up and enjoy Homecoming.  Don’t forget to leave time for photographs.  You don’t want to forget the special details of the day!  You will enjoy the special photographs for years to come!  Now you are ready for a memorable high school night!  Make Homecoming time around Rochester, Michigan your own!  Dance and have fun!

I could not wait for Noor’s Stoney Senior Portrait Session in Detroit!  Noor chose such great outfits from that darling and graceful red romper, adorable sundress, perfect plaid dress and the cute jeans and ruffly top!  She is also super smart and super sweet.  She takes a heavy class load of advanced classes, runs cross country, sings in her fabulous high school choir and puts her heart and soul into mission trips.  I love talking to these young people about their plans for the future. This impressive young lady may be your doctor some day!  I wish her all the best!

So much fun at Allie’s Stoney Creek Senior session in downtown Rochester!!  I just loved this summer session with Allie.  We started out at Bloomer Park since she grew up nearby.  Then we stopped by the meadow and trail since she wanted nature in her session.  Doesn’t she look stunning and right at home in these beautiful settings?  After that we went into downtown Rochester and explored some cool spots.  The outfits she wore showed off her great sense of style.  Wishing Allie a great year!  Before we know it she’ll be off to college (maybe Michigan State!) and going on to achieve great things.  Besides being super cute and having a great personality she is really smart and a great runner.  She placed 1st in the 800m at Regionals and went on to Nationals!  Way to go Allie!  I look forward to seeing all you accomplish!  I’m so glad I got to capture your senior portraits for you and your family to treasure!

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?!?
