Location, props and makeup can change an average photoshoot to a fantastic one.  This photo was shot in a warehouse in Flint, MI. I take pictures of cars all day long.  I saw this antique Chevy being worked on by a mechanic.  I just had to get some pictures.  After the mechanic was done he pulled it into the car photo studio and we snapped a few pictures.  The owner plans on re-painting the car soon but it looks fantastic in the pictures!
Senior pictures are best when your personality shows through.  It is always a good idea to bring a prop that means something to you.  A band or musical instrument (as shown above), sports outfit or gear.  If it is a reflection of you . . . bring it with you.
I love Dow Gardens in Midland, MI.  The atmosphere is relaxing and the grounds are beautiful no matter what season of the year it is.  When I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding at Dow Gardens this summer I was excited.  The wedding was late summer so there were tall flowers in bloom and the greenery was lush and full.
Fall is a perfect time for senior pictures in Michigan.  The weather is a little cooler and the evening sky can be full of color and clouds (for outdoor pictures).  With school just beginning there is still time to get your senior pictures done in time to make it into the yearbook.  Great Lakes Bay area (Saginaw, Bay City, Midland) seniors should schedule a portrait session now before it gets to late.
For the huge crowd that gathered at Hooters in Bay City on Saturday July 24, 2010  – the day was a mix of sunshine, rain and then black of night.  The evening was a lot of fun and I was able to get a good amount of great shots.  You can purchase pictures.
