Four Generation Family Portrait

posted in: Photography | 0

Over the holidays, and we managed to plan an impromptu family portrait. I was thrilled, as I always emphasize the importance of images like this to my clients, but haven’t been able to coordinate one for my own family since before our little one joined the family. I am so glad we were able to capture this portrait of myself, my son, my mother, and my grandfather.

Timing constraints didn’t allow us to include more family members, but I am confident we can plan something for the next family get together. This portrait is already hanging on the wall in our kitchen, where I have been able to enjoy it on a daily basis.

Extended Family Portraits

I love doing extended family portraits — and when the family is in town for holidays such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, I usually get a few requests for sessions like these. I know it can feel kind of hectic to plan a family portrait midst family gatherings, but trust me, you will treasure the results. Here are a few family portraits from a holiday portrait session.

Studio Senior Portraits

There is something compelling about the simplicity of studio Senior portraits. While I love doing location portraits for senior photos, I also do enjoy staying in the studio and focusing more on the senior and her personality. Here are some portraits that the family selected as their favorites. Several of these made it into framed pieces, which I am sure look great on the wall!

Senior Portraits :: Downtown Ann Arbor

While I love going to new places for location senior portrait sessions, it is also nice to revisit old favorites. And for C’s session, we went to two places I have enjoyed doing portraits — the Arb and Graffiti Alley. I am happy with how all C’s portraits turned out, she looks amazing in this senior portraits ;). Can’t wait to hear about the big decisions for college once that decision becomes more imminent.

Family Portrait at Mill Creek

posted in: Photography | 0

Family portraits on location are always a lot of fun. Simply choosing the right spot will make all the difference in the world. While often we do plan family portraits at a client’s home, it is also nice to do portraits at the local park. So for this particular family portrait — that’s exactly where we went. And the results look great, don’t you think?

The river and boardwalk provided a great variety of portraits, all within walking distance. I am all for making things as simple as possible for my clients!

Professional Business Portrait

I recently created a professional portrait for Michael Carlin, a lawyer in Southeast Michigan. As is sometimes (maybe often!) the case, simpler turned out to be better.

Creating a professional business portrait like this doesn’t take much time out of your busy day; but it will make an impact on your professional image. When I’m asked, I always tell people why it’s so important to have a high quality portrait for business — image is everything. As much as we try to be objective in decision-making, emotions play a part in our day-to-day decisions. Your clients look at your portrait and make instantaneous, subconscious judgments about you and your business based on your portrait. “He looks like a nice guy!” …or… “I think I could trust him!” For less than an hour of your time, we can create a professional and friendly business portrait that you will be excited to see on your promotional brochures and website.

Newborn Portraits :: Mia

Big brother Nate and big sister Tessa helped me to create some adorable portraits of their new little sister, Mia! We had lots of fun, and the kids were really cooperative. After creating a few portraits of all the kids together, it was time for Mia to hog the spotlight so we did some portraits of just baby girl by herself. I love how these all turned out; it is always great to include family in newborn sessions.

Professional Studio Portrait :: Erin

posted in: Photography | 0

Erin needed a portrait to display on her website. After a bit of discussion to see what style of image she was after, we settled on a clean gray background and a relaxed-yet-professional look. While there was a possibility she might want more than one image to use on the site, both she and I loved this particular portrait so much that it was the clear choice.

I’m excited to see how this looks when incorporated into her website; I bet it will be fantastic!

Birthday Pictures

I love doing birthday pictures that include cake, cupcakes, or some sort of treat for a toddler. And this session was no exception.

First, for the birthday cupcake inspection…

One Year Birthday Photographs

And after a little cajoling, we finally got a bit messy! Sadly, I think we got more icing on the floor and on the adults than on the toddler… go figure (guess Baby Led Solids/Weaning really does work).

Finally, since he was in town visiting, we talked Great Grandpa into helping with the session. Here’s one of those portraits:

Happy first birthday!! Such a cutie pie 🙂 🙂

Michigan Winter Family Portrait

With all this record-setting warm weather we’ve been having, snow seems a far cry to the past (knock on wood!). Normally I schedule outdoor sessions to avoid precipitation, but for this family portrait, that’s just what was desired… a fresh coating of snow. With how wacky this winter was, I’m glad we were finally able to create these portraits.

Here’s the top pick from the outdoor family portrait:

We also created some portraits in the studio, since it was so chilly outside! Here’s the baby girl in her kimono… so adorable:And the siblings together. It’s always cute to see how proud big siblings can be when holding the new baby (even if it is with help!).
