Senior portraits Rochester Michigan

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.

Flashback to summer and some great evenings with Stoney Creek High School Senior, Connor for his Senior portraits!  Connor is such as great guy!  It was great to walk around Rochester with him and make some of the local scenes his own!  We weren’t able to use the lacrosse field on the first night so we joined up again at Stoney for some more fun.  I love these lacrosse photos and I’m so glad they will have these to look back on and remember all their times at the fields over the years.

Rochester Michigan senior photography went on another road trip to Detroit!  Ever since I told him about the Z Garage I think he pictured himself up there with his car.  We couldn’t head right there though, we had to wait for the perfect light.  This summer evening did not disappoint.  The weather was perfect and the sky was gorgeous.  I love that Detroit’s comeback is serious this time.  There are so many great developments down there and such great energy!  We started our Detroit exploration in Eastern Market, checking out the market sheds and murals.  Then we took a walk through the Dequindre Cut.  You can’t miss the summery feeling in these images.  We thought the Eastern Market Shed portraits looked like we could have taken them in California.  Jack loves cars and California.  I was happy to bring some of both into his Senior Portrait session.

Finally it was time to head into the heart of the city.  Downtown is home to so much great art, like the Shepard Fairey mural.  It makes the perfect backdrop for a senior guy and his car.  I like the warm summer glow on the buildings in the background here.  I brought out my off-camera lighting here.  This was so I could get light on my subjects and have the exposure I wanted on the background.  Yes, that is a bit more photography geek talk from me.  I love some ocf!  Stick with me, I’ll get talking this way too.

 

And you just have to love a good sunset from a rooftop in the city.

Metro Detroit Senior Photography

Another fun day with Kate for her Metro Detroit Senior Photography portrait session!  I knew this session with Kate was going to be fantastic when we met up to plan her session.  Kate is a big city girl at heart so we quickly decided downtown Detroit was the place to go for her senior portrait session. I can’t say enough good things about Kate.  She attends The International Academy so you know she works hard at school.  It was great talking to her about her plans for the future.  Many of her top school choices are in big cities.  I wonder where she will decide to attend.  I know one thing for sure she will work hard and go places! 

With Detroit you can get so much diversity in your session.  We started our session in Eastern Market.  The colors and vibrancy never disappoint.  This area is also steeped in history.  You can’t help but imagine it back in the bustling 50s and seeing some of the same architecture is so cool, to say the least.  We also stopped at the nearby Dequindre Cut.  What a comeback that area has made!  From there we went to the waterfront.  I had been wanted to explore more around the lighthouse and the majestic weeping willows.  If was the perfect spot for this native Californian girl.  Don’t miss the skyline image at the end of this post!  Lastly we went to check out The Belt – coolest alley anywhere!  The Belt was hopping with people enjoying this beautiful summer night.

Rochester Park Senior Portraits

Rochester Park Senior Portraits

This Rochester Park Senior Portraits!  Well, technically we started at the Library since Alyssa is an avid book reader.  Alyssa attends the International Academy for High School.  It’s a very tough school but also provides great opportunities like travel.  She is such a smart an ambitious girl.  It was so great to see the way she lit up when talking about books and shared with me the prologue of her current favorite.  I could quickly see why the book enthralls her.   She has started writing her first novel.  I look forward to getting an autographed copy some day not too far off.  I’m sure she works hard there!  She is also into acting and has performed a few different places in town.  This summer Alyssa checked out a few colleges and is already hard at work back at school.  I hope she has a fantastic Senior year!  

During her session I learned a bit about Dr Who and Harry Potter.  At least I had a clue about Harry Potter already.  I love how Alyssa came so prepared with props and attire to accent her interests and personality.  I learned a few things and we had some good laughs along the way too!  Don’t you just love all the water and trails around Rochester?!?

Next, we stopped at the Rochester Municipal Park for a Harry Potter style book break!

Lastly, we stopped by the band shell where Alyssa has been in a few performances.

What is your favorite image(s) from Alyssa’s session?  I really love how she made this Rochester Park Senior Portrait session shine with her own style!  I look forward to helping Alyssa’s family preserve these images with some great portrait prints and products.  Let’s talk about how we can make your senior portrait session unique and show off your personality!

Rochester Michigan Senior Photography downtown!

It’s the perfect time of year for Rochester Michigan Senior Photography downtown!  It’s great hanging out with seniors in the summer.  I love getting a jump on these sessions.  Schedules get busy as soon as school is in session and those yearbook photos are due before we know it.  McKenzie, her mom and I enjoyed a gorgeous summer night around her hometown of Rochester.  Their family does a lot around town so it was the perfect place for her senior portraits.  We walked around town then did a loop through the Rochester Municipal Park.  I love getting to know these seniors.  It’s such a cool time in their life.  I love to hear their favorite classes, favorite things outside of school and their plans for the future.  McKenzie wants to study nursing.  She is sweet, smart and dedicated and I know she is going to be an awesome nurse!  I wish her an awesome senior year, filled with a lot of great times and long-lasting memories!

As I said on Facebook, if you know McKenzie you know there has to be a river and a hammock in her senior photo session.  Being a kayaker she is right at home in the river.

Lastly, we visited a hidden gem, not far from the park.  McKenzie’s family has had a plot at the community garden for a few years so her mom know just where to go for the colorful finale to our session.  I love this cheerful fence and we happened to be there right at sunflower season.  This sunflower came from the family garden plot.
