Golden Hour Shoot with Port Huron Northern Senior Photographer

Vibrant Fall Senior Photoshoot

Kennedy

port huron michigan photographer.jpg

   Yesterday the sun was out for the first time in what honestly felt like 6 months and I said out loud to myself- oh my god. 2 minutes later I caught myself saying it again.    I’m all about the relaxing feeling of the doom and gloom, the rainy days, and the overcast days that bring out the artist in me, but I was honestly beginning to feel like a vampire.
   Kennedy’s Senior Photoshoot was shot last year when the leaves had fallen but we were still soaking up that golden glow. My gosh do I MISS that!! Scroll down and see the shot of the sun shining through her hair. Perfection.
   When the snow first flies I get so excited, it’s clean, it’s white, it’s pure, it’s like magic to shoot in. Then Spring comes and the drab tones are actually really pretty to photograph in, you have this muted palette that’s like a blank canvas ... but come on Michigan, I’m over it! Take me back to this beauty!!!
   Kennedy rocked her shoot, and this just shows you how diverse an outdoor shoot can be! At AJBC locations are HUGE to us! We literally spend hours every year scouting out new spots- grungy, country, city, chic, boho... We want to make sure that when you book YOUR shoot looks TOALLY different than your friends, or even anyone on our site, so going to unique, new places is a must! Location scouting has actually become a secret hobby of mine... I can’t hike anywhere, drive anywhere, vacation anywhere, shop anywhere without thinking to myself- oh my gosh... I HAVE to come back here for a shoot, or hey hubby.... can you make that for me for a shoot, or can you haul that home for me? Like the god only knows how many hundreds of pounds vintage piano I had to have for a shoot! hehe
   We have so many little corners of the Earth that we shoot in that the girls on my team and I had to actually put together a Location Look Book, a collection of all the places we’ve shot at in the past, just to keep them all organized and not forgotten about, ready to use when you bring us the outfit that was just meant to be there. And if you come to us with an outfit that doesn’t fit any of those spots we’ll hop in the car and hunt down something that will tie it all together.
   Kennedy’s fashion was on pointttttt. The layers, the way the colors made her eyes pop, that hair, gurlllll, you rockin this!
   From the trees, to the shoreline, to cliff sides, and graveyard tunnels, Kennedy was so fun to work with at all these different spots, and I feel like a new personality and style shined through at each location, from free and fun to grungy, to fashion.

Senior Fashion- how to diversify your look during your photoshoot

Senior Fashion- how to diversify your look during your photoshoot

    I like girls who don’t exactly play by the rules, especially with fashion. Take a few risks, I promise you it will pay off. Even if you’re not ready to totally get WAY out of the box, even the smallest of details will make a huge difference!
   Andrea didn’t know at the time of her shoot I would be using her as this fashionista example, I didn’t even know it, but looking back at her shoot now it’s clear she put together some killer looks and there’s some things you could learn from her and what she rocked during her Summer and Fall Senior Photoshoots (yes- she’s so fab she did 2 shoots!)

   First off, this green “dress” she’s wearing. It’s an oversized sweater. She bought it larger than her normal top size so it would be the perfect slouchy, comfy sweater dress. So get creative with pieces and sizes! The boho headpiece- it’s just a necklace! As she was putting it on she looked like a little gypsy with it on her head, so we snagged some fun shots!

   This bold pop of color in her next look was great and notice the accessories- a few bracelets and watch. It’s these tiny things that add extra texture and bling to your portraits, so don’t forget parts of your wardrobe that you think will be hidden- we’ll find a way and a pose to show them off!

   Ok! I’ve waited long enough to talk about my FAV outfit she wore! These overalls and boots. The floral, bright crop top still keeps it feminine but those tall boots with the pants rolled up bring that edge back! I can’t get over this look! It’s unexpected and that’s what’s going to make your portraits stand out! Plus, she’s got moves- I mean look at her just rockin those baggy boyfriend cut overalls!

   Ok, moving on from my current obsession of overalls- This dress is a great chic look and really mixes it up from the looks we’ve seen so far. It’s something a little more sophisticated, put together, and then paired with the heel, it takes it to a level we haven’t seen yet! Diversity is key to get the most out of your Senior Portraits!

  Next we have this super casual look. When I say casual I don’t mean boring though, the ripped jeans and layered necklace keep it interesting! It’s meant to be a carefree, summer look paired with the easy going, sun kissed location.

   And lastly. So dreamy. This white, soft dress with this floral crown. Whimsy will never get old to us at AJBC! The look turns very editorial / fashion when she gets in the water! And THIS is what you want for your Senior Experience! Something that doesn’t FEEL or look like a typical portrait. The days of turn, smile, click are gone, and so are the “rules” of fashion, because true fashion has no rules and no limits.

Nik- The Guy Senior Shoot that will be hard to top

Guy Fall Grunge shoot by Port Huron Senior Photographer- ajbc photography

 I’m so happy to FINALLY be putting up Nik’s blog! It's been an amazing secret we've been hiding since the Fall. He was so natural in front of the camera, Nik’s personality was fun, genuine, and contagious, so from the get go, it was a blast!
   For our first look we wandered out into the woods. Nik’s first outfit was this comfy yet super stylish mustard yellow sweater and piercing green eyes matched perfectly with the golden hour sun and changing fall leaves! Not only did he nail this killer look... we also got so see his absolute adorable side with his adorable pup tagging along.
   With Nik he pulled off so many looks.. from a stylish good lookin’ Port Huron High Senior to.. oh hey whats up, GQ Model. For Nik’s second look we hopped in the car, and headed to Downtown Port Huron for a more grunge look. He was rockin’ ripped jeans, black T, and a flannel... simple yet perfect for the look we were going for! Between alley ways, vape smoke, abandoned buildings at the newspaper storage room we got some rockin' shots! Edgy and not what you would expect from a typical Senior shoot, which I'm totally all about.
   This is proof a guy shoot can be equally magazine worthy as a girl shoot.. Normally everyone is obsessed with the Senior girls but Nik's making guy Senior shoots look pretty kick ass right about now. Nik either needs to get into modeling or fashion styling because he nailed everything about it!

Port Huron Senior Photoshoot
Shot in Summer and Fall

Senior Session that screams both
fashion and everyday beauty

   As a senior photographer, I always encourage clients to own their style and show off who they are right now. Things will change in one way or another down the road so embrace the here and now. When I saw all of the amazing outfits Madison was bringing for her photoshoot, I knew she would have one of the most stunning & stylish Senior Portrait Photoshoots!! A perfect mix of that fierce high fashion paired with natural background beauty.
   One of the first things you notice about Madison is her spectacular smile and how natural she is in front of the camera. She had 8 different outfits in total over two seasons to express herself in a variety or different locations we had picked out just for her and the vibe she was going for. We started in the studio with her fashion look! Fierce, dramatic and glamorous, which of course she nailed!  
   From dramatic lighting to next natural lighting, we did her next outfit which was this adorable white romper outdoors in a garden of wildflowers. Gorgeous light with beautiful tones of green reflecting off her skin, shooting Madison was too easy!
   We hopped in the car for our next outfit which was down a rocky back road with golden fields. Her look...Heels, and the back roads? Yes, it may not seem like the average combo but there's nothing like strutting your confidence in some heels in any location. There are no rules here ladies!
   After that look we hopped back into in the car and drove to her stable where we met her beautiful horse, Homer, who may have stole the show, but only for a tiny bit! Madison was this elegant yet powerful equestrian rider in her uniform, but every day she was a fun, playful woman who loved her horse!
   We finished up at the stables and then it was time to race to the shores of Lexington. Madison had changed into her fifth outfit which was this chic blue dress for our city girl, downtown look, walking the cobble stone streets..
   And lastly, in casual jeans and a cute off the shoulder top we ended the Summer shoot right on the blue water of Lake Huron. I cannot emphasize how stunning it was as the sun was coming down with the warm tones! The washed out wood, sparking reflections in the lake, mixed with her blonde hair and those eyes... GOSH it was just breath taking. I remember we got the shots we needed but we COULDN'T STOP photographing her.  We ended the evening with the calm sunset off in the distance.

  Keep reading to see how we ended the whole collection with a Fall Shoot!

   No doubt Madison nailed everything in Summer, but the colors this Fall were too amazing to pass up and Fall brings a whole new Fashion, so, naturally, we had to finish the year out with all the looks! 
   We started in the studio again because I just couldn't pass up another opportunity to get some fashion forward shots of her! She's a true model. But we eventually ventured outdoors and drove down the road where we actually found this old, falling apart farm trailer, which we "borrowed" just for a few shots, and oh my gosh, they may be my fav shots from this whole collection!
   We ended walking the woods in the back of the studio, down the trails scattered with all the perfect Fall colors, and our grand finale of it all, and the most mesmerizing shot, was having her lay on the ground with her hair fanned out and Fall leaves placed ever so perfectly. Again, we had to tell ourselves we got the shot and force ourselves to stop shooting. 

   This is just a handful of some of the fav images from her NINTY image collection- 90!! Beauty + Fashion + Nature = INCREDIBLE Senior Portraits.
