Ann Arbor has such a nice variety of locations and settings for creating your portraits! For this senior portrait session, we chose two spots in Ann Arbor that are almost iconic. — Nichols Arboreteum and Graffiti Alley. An interesting juxtaposition, I might add.
Nichols Arboreteum has acres of undeveloped land. There are a variety of natural areas: rolling hills with grassy open fields, deeply wooded areas, maintained gardens, and frontage on the Huron River. It is easy to spend the day at the Arb, feeling like you are far from the city of Ann Arbor.
In contrast, Graffiti Alley is at the heart of Ann Arbor, and is everything the Arb is not. Urban, gritty, and ever-transient, the graffiti art is likely to be different each time you go.
