Teen photo session with skirts in Detroit

Teen photo session with skirts in Detroit

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!

Ah!  To be a dancer!  I just loved this Dance Photography Rochester Michigan photo session.  Kyra loves ballet and has worked hard to be ready for pre-pointe then pointe ballet classes.  I don’t know how they do the move they do, while up on pointe.  She learned from a rough start on the wrong shoes and is now loving her new Suffolk pointe shoes.  If you are looking for a great filling we recommend Fanci Footworks in Shelby Township.  I think this session with Kyra really shows her passion for dance.  I love the quiet moments when she sat lacing up her shoes.  Now to decide how many of these images will grace her walls.  I think we’ll going with a canvas hanging print.  It has a weathered strip of wood at the top and bottom of the beautiful canvas.  I think the image with her trying her pointe shoes will look spectacular on canvas.  For the rest we are going with specialty silk prints.  I can’t wait!

Here is one of the portraits from her dance photography session.  I just love it!

Ballet Shoes of her Dreams!

Aren’t these images so dreamy?  I love the softness.  I hope these inspire many dreams when the print is up on her wall!  I think it will divine as a specialty silk print.

I just love the feeling in this one.  The more dramatic lighting worked perfectly here.

We also did a few images of Kyra in action!  Have I already said that I’m excited that she has these images now to boost her self-confidence and to look back on for years to come?

I got a little creative and added a texture to this one.  I loved it so I went back and added that touch to more of the images.  What do you think?  I’d love your comments below.

Is it time for a photo session that captures the passion of someone you love?  What is your teen or high school senior into these days?  Dance, sports, books, theater,..  I love the boost in self-confidence that quality portraits and products can give to kids at these ages.  It’s also great to capture this changing time in their lives to look back on forever.  Let’s chat about what you would like to capture and we’ll make a plan together!  The sessions are so much fun and will be great memories themselves.

Meet Jordan at her Snowy Session along Paint Creek Trail Rochester!  Jordan is a Junior at Adams High School.  It was nice getting to know her as we took a walk along the river trail.  We scouted out some really cool spots.  It’s fun to re-visit common fair weather spots and see how they look adorned in fresh snow!  Jordan brought along the perfect coat and accessories for her snowy session.

We made it through the fresh snow and followed the Paint Creek trail for awhile.  I love this walk-way that Rochester spruced up a few years ago.  It’s especially gorgeous in the snow.  It’s so cool that by following the winding stairs down from the hustle and bustle of Rochester Road you can be in this beautiful natural oasis.  Turn one way and you are not too far from the Rochester Municipal Park or turn the other way and the trail follows the Paint Creek behind the library and on to the Macomb Orchard Trail and the Clinton River.

Rochester Park Teen Snow Photo Session

Rochester Park Teen Snow Photo Session

We embraced the snow last week-end for a Rochester Park Teen Snow Photo Session!  This session made my hear sing!  Lilly, a Junior at Adams High School in Rochester is just the sweetest girl!  From talking with her she is not just sweet but smart too.  She already delving into a few different AP classes.  On top of all that she is just beautiful with beautiful blue eyes.  She joined me a fun time at the park, right after our big snow storm.  We were lucky to have some more gently falling snow for this portrait session.  Rochester Municipal Park is a great park any day of the year but it was truly magical this day!  Now on the hard part of selecting some favorite images to share with you!

See, I told you she was awesome!!  I love her smile, and those eyes!

I bet you can’t pick a favorite either!  I like the Squaw Valley they brought along.  It’s a shout-out to when they lived and skied out West.  I’ve had the pleasure of skiing at Squaw Valley as well, but only once.

There seem to be two types of photo shoots parents traditionally do for their children: newborn/infant and senior portraits. But parents want to capture their children growing at every stage of life and as a Rochester Teen and Tween photographer I am lucky enough to capture all those “in between” stages as well. For this session I wanted to photograph someone who I have watched grow right before my eyes and someone who is close to my heart as a mom: my daughter Kyra.

 

Kyra is twelve years old. She’s just coming into her own shell so she can be shy, but her personality is sweet and she, like most girls her age, is very talkative once you get to know her! Kyra is starting to really get into clothing and she’s just beginning to dabble into makeup. It’s such a wonderful time to watch her as she goes through so many changes, trying to find her footing in the world. It was fun to take some photographs of her as a Rochester Teen and Tween photographer instead of being just “mom.”

 

We did this session at the Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester. It was a beautiful day and we were able to get some great shots of her in her natural element. Being a Rochester Teen and Tween photographer I try to engage with the subject in order to bring out their individual personality, especially since that personality is really starting to come to life during this stage in their lives. This age is such an awe-inspiring time, but many parents find it passing by before they know it. It’s wonderful to have these memories to look back on- your baby is still a baby but you can just peek into the adult they are becoming.

 

I really enjoyed this time with Kyra both as her mom and as a Rochester Teen and Tween photographer. I hope that she will allow me to keep this tradition with her as she gets older!

Tween Teen photo session in Detroit, Rochester photographer

Hey, a little late but what can I say, here is my Tween Teen photo session in Detroit with my kids!  I do make sure I take the time to do sessions with my kids at least once a year though!  This year we went to Detroit for the day.  I had been shooting at some cool spots that I thought my kids would enjoy.  We took them by the old train station.  I’ve been enamored by the place for years.  I used to love when the downtown in-line skating routes would take us by this old gem.

From there we went to the Z Garage.  I love all the different murals on every level.  It was so great to go to a place that even catches the attention of my teen age boys.  The boys each picked a spot that fit their interests and personality.  My daughter had fun too but I think the nature and small town sessions are more her thing.

And here is the one that made it to the wall!  I cherish the wall art of my kids and enjoy looking at them, past and present.  Boy, those years go fast!
