            ~ There are lots of locations all of Oakland County, Michigan to help make your senior photos reflect your personality.

            ~ The Metro Detroit area has a great variety of cool places to shoot outdoor, on location senior photos. When I pick locations, I look for areas that have a wide variety of backgrounds, textures and that photograph really well in afternoon light.

            ~ With that in mind, what kind of a person are you? Outdoorsy? Artsy? Classic? Beach bum? Kid who just wants to get this over with?

            ~ Here's a fun secret. Senior photos have very little to do with location and a lot to do about what's going on with your expressions. It's about feeling comfortable with me and letting me reflect your personality through your senior photos. It's not about arches and backgrounds making it appear that you live at Hogwarts!

            ~ Most seniors and their parents (well... mainly the parents), really worry about where we're going to take our photos. I mean, they really worry about it and most of them come to the conclusion that their senior photos need to be taken at Cranbrook or Meadowbrook.

            ~ While I agree that both those places are lovely and very photogenic, they are both privately owned and not open to the public. If your senior does go to Cranbrook, however, I can make arrangements to shoot there.

            ~ If cool architecture is something you want with your senior photos, I have lots of ideas for locations that are happy to have us there.

            ~ Here are senior photos that showcase some of the locations that I frequent often. If you have a place that means something special to me, I'm happy to give it try!

            You're almost there! KEEP SCROLLING to see samples from locations I frequent in the Metro Detroit area.

            Having two high school students myself, I understand how overwhelming it can be choosing a senior picture photographer. Things have changed quite a bit with how senior photos are taken even within the past ten years. Even though most school recommend certain studios for their senior photos, most of those are big contract photography studios that simply cannot offer you individualized service or take the time with your senior to put them at ease and work on bringing out their personalities. None offer the option to print what you'd like and give you ownership of your senior pictures.

            Hopefully you've explored these senior photo albums showing you the wide variety of locations I can offer my metro Detroit, Michigan seniors. I love exploring new locations, so if you have a place in mind that's not too far from Troy, Michigan where your senior would like to have their high school senior pictures taken, just let me know. Successful senior photos are more about textures and lighting that backgrounds, so I'm happy to shoot anywhere!
