Senior picturesSenior PortraitsSeniors Photos.  They may go by many names, but one thing is for certain.  More and more seniors are telling the senior pictures photography studio chain selected by their school to take a hike in favor of an incredible outdoor lifestyle session and Sydney’s senior pictures session is an excellent example of why!

Sydney is one of our Class of 2014 Ambassadors at Grosse Pointe North High School and I absolutely love her senior portraits!  While I would normally reschedule sessions on days over 90 degrees, Sydney already had her hair and makeup done so we moved forward with the session regardless of the heat.  For her session, we spent over 2 hours together jumping from shady spot to shady spot in an attempt to beat the heat.  She definitely made use of her huge sun hat trying to stay cool!  We shot her entire session using only natural light and only pulled out a diffuser one time to help eliminate a couple of harsh sun spots.

To say I love Sydney’s senior pictures is a complete understatement!  I selected a number of my favorites and included them below as a sneak peek so all of her friends and family could check them out. Please be sure to check them out and leave a comment for her!  Also, since Sydney is one of our Class of 2014 Senior Ambassadors, ask her for one of her cards and you’ll receive some free prints when you book a session for your senior pictures!

What are you waiting for?  Choose to LOVE your senior pictures!  If you are a Senior at Grosse Pointe North High School or Grosse Pointe South High School and are interested in scheduling a session for senior pictures, please contact me online or call me at 734-776-0497.  I can’t wait to work with you!

Metro Detroit Senior Pictures with Style

by Paul Manoian on June 26, 2013

As a Metro Detroit senior pictures photographer, we have the opportunity to work students all across southeast Michigan and even northwest Ohio – a LOT of students! We recently pulled together our list of the Top 5 Tips we have for students planning and preparing for their senior portraits session.

Our Top 5 Styling Tips are:

Pin It Top 5 Style Tips

  1. Stay Natural
  2. Vote “No” on Props
  3. “Poses” are for Posers
  4. Fake Backgrounds are FAKE
  5. Own It

We recently did a session with Gregory and he epitomized Own It! Own It is not about not being shy and timid during your senior pictures session.  It is all about being yourself and bringing your style to the session.  It’s about wearing it. Living it. OWNING IT!

The proofs from Gregory’s session are amazing.  They truly express his style and energy in a way that is unique to him.  That’s what we love about his images.  In fact, the image shown above is one of our favorites from the entire school year and was selected to be featured in our Top 5 Tips Styling Tips for Senior Pictures article.

We highly recommend you check out the article if you are planning you senior portrait session and encourage you to take the advice to heart. It is based on our experience with hundreds of students over a number of years. Those Top 5 Tips really will help you get the most from your session. Great senior portraits don’t just happen because someone points a camera in your general direction and you say, “Cheese.” That’s a snapshot and the “photographer” may as well be using the camera in their smartphone. Great portraits are great because you and your photographer are equally well planned!

If you’re ready to express yourself in a senior pictures session with your own brand of style, please contact us online or call 734-776-0497.  We would love the opportunity to work with you and capture your personality your way!
