For this high school senior’s portraits, we went on location for the bulk of her session. We also did some traditional senior portraits back at the studio, though by traditional we really mean studio setting, with studio lights. With the right clothing, even something simple can still be personalized and unique.
With senior portraits, if you’re going to do a two part session, we recommend starting at the studio — that way you have time to get used to being in front of the camera. These studio photos are often used for high school yearbook submissions, as they usually have backdrop requirements and such.
Once we have that out of the way, it’s off to the location of your choice for a fun and creative photography experience!
It can be tough to find a spot for senior photos that hasn’t been overused. But even with a place as popular as Ann Arbor’s graffiti alley, it’s all about your vision. I bring dramatic lighting and different camera angles together so that your senior photos will look unique — even if they are taken in a popular place for senior pictures.
Don’t worry so much about whether a particular spot is “overused” — make sure you trust your senior photos to the right photographer, so that you can get creative and unique results — no matter where your senior photos are taken.
Location: Graffiti Alley, Ann Arbor, MI.
