Golden Hour Shoot with Port Huron Northern Senior Photographer

Vibrant Fall Senior Photoshoot

Kennedy

   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.

Anchor Bay Senior Photographer- Photo Shoot

Anchor Bay Senior Photographer- Photo Shoot

BoHo Michigan Senior Photoshoot

Outdoor, Natural Beauty Shoot

chic senior style michigan beauty photographer.jpg

   Anchor Bay High School is a long ways from our little town of Burtchvillr, but Jessica still made the drive to get photographed by us at AJBC Photography! Thank goodness because I would be jealous of any other photographer that got to capture those mysterious eyes! You’ll see what I mean when you scroll down.
   When Jessica was planning her Senior Photoshoot with us in the studio she just kept saying the word “golden.” She wanted her Senior Portraits to be warm, full of sunshine. Who doesn’t love that look? So we scheduled the 4 outfit photoshoot for later in the day, when we would catch that golden hour.
   We started by showing off her creative side and all of her talents. Not only did she come with her own make up done (totally flawless) she also draws, does photography (she even booked a few of her own Senior Shoots this year) and is musically gifted. Seriously... share some of those talents!
   Next... to the bean field! And a ditch... Yes, you read both of those right. Magic, I know. This field was just a visual replica of the yellow brick road. We actually referred to it as the yellow bean road. It’s so refreshing having open minded people like Jessica and her mom create with us! They totally embraced this look and the adventure that goes with it... barefoot, in a dress, on the dirt backroads, in front of a farmer’s bean field, or crawling 3 feet down into a muddy ditch because you know that color and her blonde hair and her perfect fair skin is just going to harmonize beautifully together. God, I love the beauty in the unexpected!
   Next we snuck in to the back of an apple orchard, parking behind trees off the side of a dusty road, to hide from the crowds and do our own things. The sun just wrapped around Jessica as she sat soaking up the rays. We fanned out her hair for some shots and then... those eyes. Seriously unbelievable! It’s moments like these us photographers have to peel ourselves away from the camera and admit there’s more to do, but you really don’t want to- you just want to keep photographing!!
   Lastly we drove to the shores of Lake Huron in Lexington to watch the sun sink behind the trees and reflect off the calm water. Jessica gracefully balanced on big rocks, danced in the sand, and went from this sweet young girl to this fashion model all within this one photoshoot.

Her sweet smile when she laughed reminded you she was still just a young girl in school. Those eyes and that mature attitude reminded you she wasn’t far away from being an adult either. And that’s what these Senior Experiences are all about.
   Capture the beauty of both worlds in a magical way while they're still here.

Marysville Senior Photographer

   There was a time when I considered not photographing Senior guys anymore, just focusing on the girl Seniors. Girls always seemed more excited and more involved when it came to their shoot. I wanted to create images for people who appreciated them, and guys always said they never cared. That was until a few years ago when I photographed a Senior guy with the same old story- who’s mom had called and told me her son didn’t care at all about getting his portraits taken, but it was important to her.
   Like any shoot I ever do, it’s my main priority, I’m there to create something memorable and impacting for not only those being photographed but those viewing the photos too. And that’s what I did with that shoot, for mom, and for him, regardless of what he told me. I also made sure to really take into consideration this Senior’s style, what he was into, who he was, and how he envisioned these, even though he sad he didn’t care.
   After seeing his portraits for the first time it was really obvious that wasn’t true. He was so proud of himself and loved each and every image. He just kept commenting on how good he looked and how great the shoot was. That’s when I realized- guys can say and act however they want about this whole process, but just like girls, just like anyone, they want to feel good about themselves, they want to show off what they’ve worked really hard for, and they want to be celebrated in their last year of high school!

     Thank god I didn’t stop photographing guy Seniors, because if I had, I would have missed out on the opportunity to photograph this handsome guy! Dylan never expressed to us that he didn't care about his shoot, he was the total opposite, he would smile and agree to almost anything. His mom and sister were also a huge part of the shoot, which was so cute to watch them all together
   Dylan is the true definition of a charming guy. He’s a little quiet, he’s got the cutest little smirk, and I think he might even have the tiniest of southern accents some how. His outfits stayed true to his style- chic and simple, but not in a bad way. Some guys just don’t need all of that. He loves the outdoors so we hit up every look we could- woods, water, city, country back roads with an abandoned house. His smile photographed great, but when he rocked that serious face I’m sure young girls hearts were and are still melting.

   I’m glad I never trusted those other guys when they said they didn’t care about their Senior Portraits. We’ll continue to photograph guys here just to prove them all wrong- that we can and we will make you swoon over your own pictures and be damn proud of yourself when you’re done with your shoot with us. Because whether these guys like it or not, we all need a reminder of all that we have to offer, and portraits are a powerful way of visually expressing that.

Port Huron Northern Downtown Senior Photoshoot

Senior Photoshoot shows off

strong yet feminine athletic side
along with sweet and fashionista side

at Port Huron Northern and downtown Port Huron.


   I like a girl who can pull off 4 different looks in the same day. It tells a lot about your personality and shows diversity.
   Allie started out preppy and cute with her polo and glasses, switched it up to gorgeous in a cream dress floating in the water, got a little sassy with her grungy downtown look, and then really rocked it for her sports look.
   I’m going to be honest- I love shooting portraits that feel model / fashion like. It’s a little moody, a little edgy, it’s fresh. I never find Sports photography fits into that… but I LOVED Allie’s sports look. This photoshoot totally changed my mind about that! She still looks feminine but in a very strong way. Her curls don’t get in the way of her boldness.
   Picture this. We were also working against an over crowded, badly lit gym. I’m talking 20 girls whipping volleyballs at our heads, no windows, ugly yellow lights. But we busted out some off camera flash and that just gives it this gritty, impactful, commercial look. She just rocked it.      
   Strong girls make me happy and when you can jump over hurdles as high as my chest and do a push up on 2 basketballs, well, that falls into the category of strong and bold with me.
  You go girl.
  So you guys need to scroll down and see all of what I’m talking about!
