I had the pleasure of photographing the new Miss Michigan USA – Rashontae Wawrzyniak – two years ago at a photo shoot in Farmington, Michigan. Last year, she was first runner up in the competition, and this year she reached her goal of being selected Miss Michigan USA. Congratulations Rashontae!!!

The beautiful Cranbrook campus in Bloomfield Hills was the scene of a great senior portrait session with Jake earlier this week. There are so many amazing backdrops to take advantage of on the campus, and Jake did a great job. It was also really nice to have both parents come along for the photo walk. The senior year goes by so quickly, and this moment in time is now forever captured.

The top spot for on-location senior portraits is the Detroit Riverfront and Dequindre Cut. It provides such a wide variety of backdrops, ranging from urban to natural. Sometimes it is hard to believe you are actually downtown. There is nowhere else you can find a marina, lighthouse, the Renaissance Center, natural meadows and wetlands, graffiti art, a carousel, and an international border all in one location.
The RiverWalk includes Rivard Plaza, with its beautiful carousel, a bike rental shop (Wheelhouse Detroit), public bathrooms, and a snack shop. Adjacent to this area is Milliken State Park and Harbor – an urban park with a beautiful and natural setting. The Dequindre Cut, a pedestrian and bicycle pathway, has some amazing art created by some of the most talented graffiti artists in the City.
The comments I hear from seniors and their parents when we are along the RiverWalk are all positive. Many are unaware of the major improvements the City of Detroit has made in this area. It feels safe and comfortable – a real family-friendly location.
Make your appointment today and let’s shoot your senior portraits along the Detroit River!
