Family Portrait :: Baby M.

posted in: Photography | 0

Here are portraits from Baby M’s newborn session.  I absolutely LOVE the one of her big brother holding her; he looks so proud to be an older sibling!

Interestingly enough, we spent most of the session trying to get Baby M to fall asleep so that we could create the tour de force — that adorable artistic portrait of her sleeping on the settee.

I hope the family enjoyed their holiday gifts 🙂 — portraits always make wonderful presents, don’t you think?

Professional Musician Portrait

This winter I created a professional portrait for my high school oboe teacher, Kristin Reynolds.  She is a faculty member at Eastern Michigan University, in addition to teaching private lessons and makes reeds for oboists not wanting to make their own.  Or, as in my case — not having the time to make my own reeds anymore!

Studio Senior Portrait

posted in: Photography | 0

Here are some highlights from one of our Pioneer Class of 2012 Senior sessions. This senior did a simple session at the studio. Now that our outdoor deck space is finished, we are pleased to provide easy green portraits like these outdoor senior portraits. I always love the deep blue sky portraits; they are a nice complement to the typical studio fare for senior sessions… and for those wanting a no-fuss session with two different looks, this is the perfect compromise.

Enjoy your senior year at Pioneer!!

C+I :: Newlywed Portraits

posted in: Photography | 0

This summer I photographed a pair of happy newlyweds — and rather than document their wedding, we planned a fun outdoors wedding portrait session. While the sun made for a hot day, I’m glad that we didn’t see any rain clouds!

Congratulations C + I… I love the storybook album we designed using all the wonderful portraits from your session at Gallup Park, and I can’t wait to help you select your favorite one to be made into a wall portrait!

Family Gathering :: Holiday Portrait

posted in: Photography | 0

The H. family had everyone in town over the holidays, and of course they contacted us to plan a portrait session at their home! We kept things simple, since the entire family group was so large. It takes some time to create a family portrait like this, so we did have to tease a few smiles out of the kids for some of the portraits. Overall I was really pleased with how well everyone did, particularly the puppy and the children. The important thing is that everyone had a relaxed experience, and that the portraits turned out well. I’m sure the H. family will enjoy these family portraits for many years to come.

Amber :: 2011 Pioneer Senior

posted in: Photography | 1

Amber was one of our senior spokesmodels for 2011. She did a great job, and while I loved the images we created during her studio senior portrait session, I have to say that her location session portraits are in hot contention — both turned out amazingly.

Here are a few highlights from the second half of Amber’s session. We went to downtown Ann Arbor to create some really cool urban gritty portraits.

And, of course, we ended up with so many amazing portraits of Amber that an album was a necessity. Here’s the video of images in Amber’s senior portrait album:

Siblings :: Location Portrait

Before it turned cold, I created a family portrait for the S. family. Unlike a typical portrait where everyone was involved, we decided to have this session focus on the kids. Well, adult-aged kids, that is. Both siblings were back in town on college break, so we went to Gallup Park to create some unique sibling portraits.

Mike :: Senior Portraits Michigan

Mike had his senior portraits done at our studio recently. While we kept things simple, Mike did decide to have me create senior portraits for him both in studio and outdoors. I love the dramatic edgy feel in a few of the studio portraits. And in the outdoors portraits, I love the bold color combination (yellow, blue, green). Plus, an added bonus is that this is right outside the studio. So we didn’t have to drive anywhere, or park and walk in the sweltering heat!

Angel :: Outdoors Family Portrait Session

posted in: Photography | 0

We planned a relaxed session at Angel’s home, to include her entire family: three people and four dogs.

Bear was the oldest dog, and since he was going blind and deaf; we did a portrait of him being petted by “his” human. Kerby posed for the camera like a show dog (well, with the aid of treats)… and Catherine, well, I captured her doing what she does best — swim in the river.

I love all these portraits, but especially love the image I created of the whole family. It’s going to look great as a wall portrait in Angel’s home!
