Urban Senior Picture (Ann Arbor)

Areonna's senior portrait session in downtown Ann Arbor was so much fun. Before heading to Graffiti alley, we did some senior pictures at Nickel's Arcade. But here, at Graffiti Alley, Areonna was in her element.

She changed jackets for this set of images. You can’t see it in the photos, but there were construction workers doing a site survey right as we arrived. I chatted briefly with them to make sure we wouldn’t be intruding on their job, and then we worked around each other. I had to smile when they asked Areonna if she was a model, or what magazine the photoshoot was for …. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

With senior photos like this, I kind of get why the surveyors were asking about us doing a magazine photoshoot. This really reminds me of a fashion photo with that intense serious look. ๐Ÿ™‚

Areonna also plays drums. She brought her drumsticks with her for the session. So I told her to play on the wall. She totally got in the zone and just started hammering out some awesome rhythms.

I love how the artwork here is ever-changing. Graffiti is so transient, but despite that the art gets documented every time someone comes here for a portrait session. Kind of cool.
