“My daughter has her heart set on using your services. :)”, was how the email started out.
When senior photography clients come along, it’s almost always my senior girls who’ve spent the time scouring the internet in search of a senior photo photographer (as opposed to their moms), and I love that! They have their heart set on working with ME for their senior pictures, and that’s always such an honor! 🙂 They are always extra excited; they’ve extensively looked through my senior portrait galleries, are in love with what they’ve seen, and are eager to start planning the perfect session for themselves!
Cassidy knew she wanted an edgy and urban look for her senior portraits, so we chose to do her photos in downtown Detroit. We captured a huge mix of beautiful photos, using a wide variety of backgrounds, including skyline views on rooftops, colorful murals, and ivy and grass growing in juxtaposition to urban decay. She was so easy to work with, and I had fun exploring the city with her and her family!
