Tag Archives: High School Senior Pictures

Cassidy is a gifted musician and actress, and her many talents were on full display during her Cinematic senior photo session in Grand Rapids! The first image in this set won Second Place in the NAPCP July 2016 International Image Competition. I am so grateful for amazing clients like Cassidy!

Allison planned an incredible variety of looks for her Cinematic Session in downtown Grand Rapids! And to ensure that her senior pictures were like no one else’s, she even went back for a second makeup look for a set of fantasy mermaid images! Loved working with you, Allison!

Noelle has a classic beauty that reminds me of Golden Age Hollywood! I loved photographing her all around Grand Rapids and Ada, Michigan. Working with girls like Noelle make my job as a senior photographer so enjoyable!

Sisely was a delight to photograph for her senior session in Downtown Grand Rapids! I LOVE it when my seniors bring unique and creative ideas for their senior portraits, and Sisely was determined to get shots that nobody else was doing. This led us all over Grand Rapids, culminating on the rooftop of Downtown Market. Awesome.

One of the things my seniors learn right away when we start our urban sessions is that I will do anything to get the shot! Fortunately, Amanda had no problem stopping traffic or doing a little light trespassing during her senior portrait session in Downtown Grand Rapids. We had so much fun! Thank you, Amanda!

One of my favorite sessions of the year was Aliyah from Jenison HS. What amazing style! And although moms usually tag along for my sessions, Aliyah’s dad came along for her photo shoot, and we had so much fun! The best part is that the fun shows through in the finished images. Thank you, Aliyah!

I’m pretty sure Jamin is a triple-threat: Professionally-trained dancer, gifted musician, and all-around beautiful human being. Thank you so much for choosing to create your senior portraits with me! What fun!

Here’s a pro tip: When you have a high-end camera with a big honkin’ lens, and when you’re photographing a girl who looks like Morgan, you can pretty much do wherever you want. So when some random dude pulls up in a classic car, do you think we’re going to sit on it? You bet we are! Thanks, Morgan for being such a great sport and for making the drive to Grand Rapids for your senior pictures!

Hannah’s senior portrait session had a little bit of everything: Classic styles, flowering fields, rustic village locations, athletic shots— even the family business. The end result was not only a great set of images of a lovely young lady, but Hannah’s personality captured in keepsake photo art for her family to enjoy for years to come. Thank you, Hannah, for letting me be a part of your senior experience!

Lauren, a trained dancer, was kind enough to bring her ballet pointe shoes and strike some awesome poses as we explored Grand Rapids for her senior portrait session. The results are gorgeous. Thank you, Lauren!

Sydney is one of those kids who seems to do EVERYTHING well — top honors student; skier; color guard and more. Thank you so much for letting me help commemorate your senior year! You’re going to do wonderfully at Michigan State University in the fall!

I hope you’ll pardon a personal post, but I couldn’t be any prouder of this guy. Jonathan (yeah, my kid) is the epitome of character, hard work and talent. This year, Jonathan accomplished his primary goal of finishing his High School forensics career as a State Champion in sales, all while maintaining perfect grades and being great to his family and friends. Yeah, I gush a little, but he’s mine for a little longer, so I get to play the mom card if I want to.

Good luck in the fall at Hope College, and don’t forget to text your mom!
