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.
