Fashion Ideas for Seniors and Head Shots

You are not alone if you are looking for inspiration on Fashion Ideas for Seniors and Head Shots in Rochester.  I offer information on this topic on both my website and in my on-line and printed client packets.  I wanted to take it a step further and show more up-to date examples.  I reached out to a local shop, 4th Street Boutique in Rochester Michigan, that is great to shop at for both Seniors and those preparing for head shot sessions.  This charming and very well-stocked boutique is located right off Main Street in Rochester’s picturesque downtown.  I can’t say enough good things about this store.  They have the great clothes, jewelry, accessories and even gifts.  All of this is presented to you in a beautiful way, from shabby chic armoires and other charming display pieces.  The tin ceilings and chandeliers are just perfect for this place.  Come and check it out!

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.

Senior Friends Photo Session

Senior Friends Photo Session

I had the pleasure of photographing this Senior Friends Photo Session yesterday in the fresh Michigan snow!  It’s so fun to do senior portraits in another season.  McKenzie had her Stoney Creek senior portrait session done this summer.  You can check out her Downtown Rochester Senior Photography Session!  Rochester Michigan was enjoying a good fresh snow fall so we bundled up and headed out.  For this session McKenzie brought along her friend Serafina.  We were able to use this adorable backyard cottage for most of our photo session.  It was the perfect spot.  The cottage was adorable with so much character.  The gorgeous windows were from the Penobscot building in Detroit and they are marvelous!  I’m so jealous and wish this was in my back yard.  Within minutes the snow quickly co-operated and fell gently for most our our session.

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

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!
