Teen Portrait Session: destination Charleston

Teen Portrait Session: destination Charleston

Teen Portrait Session

One of the highlights of Spring Break was this teen portrait session; destination Charleston.  I loved everything about Charleston!  I’ll be doing some more posts about that trip with both nature and historical charm and of course flowers, as well as a dance portrait session.  My daughter is a big history buff and loved Charleston too.  You can’t deny that the city has a ton of charm as well.  The window boxes alone were fantastic and that they graced charming buildings was just a bonus.

Shopping for Teens

I love to share shopping tips.  We found this outfit at Francesca’s.  It’s like a boutique but it’s a chain store.  Each one is unique though and they only buy one or a few of each piece of clothing so you won’t see ten (or more) people in the same outfit.  The jacket was purchased in Michigan during a buy one get one at 50% off sale, which is common.  The dress we found in Charleston on King Street.

Customized Teen Photo Sessions

I love teen portrait sessions!  They are both a glimpse of the past and future!  It’s a great time for portraits, spaced out a couple years before senior portrait time – gasp!  Charleston has beautiful backdrops galore!  I think it’s time to plan a destination photo shoot there!  Who’s in??  Seriously, flights are not too high and it would be a blast!

Don’t let these times as a young teen slip by.  Show them how special they are with a customized portrait session.  Schedule a trim or a blow-out or style for the same day and really make an event out of it!

Senior Session in Northern Michigan

Senior Session in Northern Michigan

Kicking of the Class of 2018 senior sessions with a Senior Session in Northern Michigan.  Meet Logan, this upcoming Senior at Stoney Creek High School in Rochester.  This session is extra special because he is my son and the session took place in northern Michigan.  We have been lucky to visit northern Michigan often as we have family there.  I’m so glad we captured some of our love fro this place with this northern Michigan photo session.  The weather was fantastic for our latest visit and this evening was no exception.  It was great to go back to Point Betsie, just south of the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, where we have spent many hours throwing rocks, flight kites, exploring the paths through the dunes, soaking up the sun and admiring sunsets.  It’s great to have a senior session in such a meaningful place.

If you haven’t been to Point Betsie, I highly suggest you check it out and enjoy some time there.  Thanks for checking out these images from this Senior Session Northern Michigan.  I’m so excited about these images.  I can’t wait to have them on my wall and in an album to enjoy for years to come!

You just have to see the Big Bright Light Show in Rochester, Michigan!  Even though I go through town often I still love to see the lights!  It’s so great to drive through town surrounded by the lights!  I’ve photographed them in the past but this year I did it a little differently.  Every thing aligned the other night!  It drizzled all day so I could get the reflections I wanted.  I wanted minimal cars so that meant a late night trip into town, not on a Thursday or week-end night.  Rochester is really bustling these days!  I’m proud to say a large framed print of the Big Bright Light Show of mine is displayed in the brand new Real Estate One office in Rochester!

To order my prints they can be found here in my Big Bright Light Show gallery.  You can also contact me at info@partoflifephotography dot com for help with your order or for custom sizes and media.  I also have metal ornaments available (see below).

Oh, and while you are in town don’t forget to stop at Dessert Oasis Coffee Roasters where you can see some of my fine art landscape photography!
