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.
I’d love to help you out with your senior session. Check out my Senior Portrait magazine here!
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!

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.
It’s a perfect time for your senior portraits! Contact me today from the Contact tab on the main menu above.
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.
Detroit was looking awesome this evening and so was Kate!
