West Bloomfield High School Senior Pictures with Robbie

This time of year is always jam packed with high school senior pictures and this August was no exception. One of our favorite sessions was for Robbie, a student at West Bloomfield High School. As soon as they arrived at Cranbrook House and Gardens, both Robbie and his mom Lisa had huge smiles on their faces and were excited about the day.

From the second we started shooting, Robbie just kept giving us one great picture after another. It’s safe to say he totally rocked his session, I mean look how handsome he is in these amazing senior photo!

As the Cranbrook photo session went on, Lisa was such a trooper carrying the clothes her son’s outfit changes. Being the gentleman he is though, Robbie always offered to help. He also wanted to make sure he was looking his best in all of the pictures so every time he changed, he would always ask Lisa for her opinion. You could definitely tell they have a wonderful mother/ son relationship!

Although small styling tweaks were made here and there, Robbie certainly did a good job of picking out cool senior photo outfits for guys. He had a classic style that fit well with his casual photo shoot.

The best part of being one of the approved Cranbrook photographers is the ability to utilize the many unique areas of the immaculate grounds to capture awesome senior photos in Michigan. With so much at our disposal, we had the chance to get some really unique photos of Robbie coming out of a blue door in one of their many beautiful gardens. Even an impromptu photo under a bridge was able to showcase his personality in a different way.

We concluded the session by highlighting one of Robbie’s primary passions and were able to get some great baseball senior photos as a result. Not only is he an excellent player, he has been playing for so long that he has acquired quite the collection of hats both from teams he has been on and ones that he loves. That being said, we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to capture this fun senior picture with many baseball caps from his collection. Can you believe this is only about 1/3 of it?! Thank you so very much for being such a good sport Robbie! We had a wonderful time at your high school senior photography session and we hope you did too!

Just as we had thought, our Lake Orion, Michigan farm was the perfect place to do Katie’s senior picture photography.  She just seemed so in her element.  At one point, she even stated “oh, I am so all about this” when we were suggesting specific spots for her amazing Oakland County senior pictures.  One of our favorite locations was to get her picture in a wildflower field on our property.  While we didn’t have any sunflowers, Katie’s favorite, she definitely looked radiant amoungst the white and pink flowers and she got to wear her favorite outfit!  Thank  you so very much Katie for a fun and enjoyable shoot, it was an absolute pleasure working with you!

Abby was so adorable throughout the whole senior photography session.  When she wasn’t being photographed, you could find her dancing and twirling about.  She was so relaxed and free- spirited, she definitely brought a lightness to the shoot.  Her natural ability to pose was abundantly clear as time went on, every time Abby wasn’t in front of the camera it was like she was still posing.  She was also always right there whenever her mom needed help carrying all of their additional clothes and shoes.  As you can see, these girls had brought the perfect clothes for high school senior photos, so they had a lot.

Troy High School Senior Pictures in Michigan with Austin

A couple weeks ago we had the chance to photograph another senior from a family that we have been photographing for a long time.  Just as we had expected, Austin was just as much fun to work with as his sister Amber was a few years prior in her high school senior photos.  Just as his sister did, Austin chose to get his awesome senior pictures done at Woodside Bible Church in Troy.  During the photo shoot we even got to have them both in a cute family picture!

Troy High School Michigan Senior Pictures with Jacob

Earlier this month we were able to meet Jacob at our Lake Orion, Michigan farm to take his class of 2016 senior pictures.

Jacob was so easy going and fun- loving that his barn photo shoot seemed to fly by.  Between pics, his naturally fun/goofy persona come out which totally helped us to capture his great smile and the personality that beamed through it.

Michigan Senior Pictures with Deandra

Meet Deandra! Deandra is finishing her junior year at Oxford High School and she’s now a member of our 2016 Senior Model Team!

Here are a few fun things about Deandra:
Deandra “Dede” loves cheerleading, choir, reading, sleeping and camping. Her favorite things in her closet are her cowboy boots, Levi’s and sweatshirts. She is a member of her high school’s Varsity Cheer Team, as well as the women’s choir! Deandra has such a big heart and is always volunteering when she can! She’s a part of the National Honor Society at her school, she volunteers at the children’s ministry at her church and she helps out at the non-profit agency her mom works for. Deandra has a sweet tooth for Milky Way’s and Banana Cream Pie and she is an “all-around sweet girl!” She can’t live without God, her family and friends. She is very mature and responsible. In fact, she’s always referred to as “the mom” amongst her friends. Deandra also recently walked the runway in our 2015 Fashion Show!

When asked why she’s excited to be a Senior Model, Deandra answered, “This program seems like so much fun. It gives great opportunities to meet people you may not be able to meet any other time, and you get awesome pictures that can showcase your personality! I’m just so excited!!!”

oxford michigan senior photographer

For Deandra’s model session she wanted to do something that was totally unique and that could show off her personality and interests. She’s a big Agent Carter fan and when she threw out the idea of having an Agent Carter themed shoot, we jumped all over it! We started gathering different ideas and backgrounds that we could green screen her in and Deandra and her mom went on the hunt to find the perfect Agent Carter outfit. With a cool theme, perfect outfit and a girl like Deandra who has such an awesome personality, we knew this session was going to be a blast! We had such a great time making her ideas come to life and I don’t think her pictures could’ve turned out any cooler!

For Deandra’s senior photos, we met her on our farm property. It was an “almost” rainy day. We had to tuck away from the outside and got to do most of the photo session in the barns. I really like this girl, she is funny, laid back and just a really neat all around person. She had a few outfits for these senior photos in Lake Orion.

There were parts where we didn’t have to stay tucked away, it was still a nice day outside. Look at her photos, can you see how big her smile is? That’s this girl, what a treasure.
