Senior Photographer – { Royal Oak }

Being a senior photographer in the metro Detroit area is one of the coolest parts of this job.  I meet senior high school boys & girls that are ready to take on the world and that kind of energy is infectious.  I love how unique they all are too, like this high school senior from Michigan’s Rochester High School .  He brought his own style to the shoot which made this photographer very happy.

We walked around Royal Oak because a cool, urban setting was true to his personality.  We walked around and hit my favorite spots downtown.  We chatted up about what he’s into, what he’s looking forward to this year and high school is like for him.  I love the chatty part too because it helps to make everyone comfortable.  I like a relaxed approach to photos so walking and talking puts everyone at ease. It helps me draw out their personalities too so I can look for good spots that fit who they are.  Like this picture, it’s one of my favorites from that day.

We hit up UHF next, it’s a sweet little record store on Washington avenue because there is no better place to read comic books but the floor of a record store.

This was definitely my favorite part because if you know me, you know I love me some vinyl.  He was so cool though, went right a long with me and seemed to know just what to do.

I love how unique he is too, confident in himself and totally on point with his style.  I’m pretty sure that whatever he does in life it will be unique and cool as he is.
