Emily | Class of 2018 | Northville High School

Meet Emily, one of my Class of 2018 Senior Spokesmodels and my first senior destination shoot!  Interested in a destination session (why not have an amazing trip and photo experience all in one)?  Contact me HERE for more details on this opportunity!

Emily plans on pursuing stage management (a type of theatre production) in college, and Chicago is one of the national hubs for theatre culture. As you can plainly see in these photos, Chicago is where her heart is! Emily attends Northville High School and is very involved with the drama club and school news program, the Northville News Network. She was looking for a session that embodied not only who she had become, but where she was going as an artist.  

Her cool and casual style was perfect for the streets of Chicago. Emily wanted both a soft, outdoor images and the urban feel of the theatre district, and through the magic of Chicago (and a lot of walking) we were able to accomplish both! The necklace she chose to wear with one of her outfits once belonged to her grandfather, and she now wears it every day in his memory. It was wonderful to include something so important to her in these pictures. Emily chose me as her senior photographer because “The photos are simply so beautiful because every photo she takes is different based on who she is working with. Each image tells a story, and that’s what I was looking for in a senior photographer.”  More information about Christine's lifestyle, story-telling approach to senior portraits is posted here.

Casey | Walled Lake Western High School | Class of 2017

"I love the natural beauty you bring out in your photos
without lots of editing or making the photos look fake.
I think you know how to bring out the best side
of someone in your photos”
-Casey, Class of 2017

This session was filled with lots of light, and was so carefree and lovely, just like the young lady in the photos. Meet Casey, another one of my senior spokesmodels for this year. She’s going to graduate as part of the Class of 2017 from Walled Lake Western High, and she wanted a session that was natural and fun. Casey is very involved at Walled Lake, and participates in competitive dance, the varsity pom team, and volunteer work in her community. In addition, she enjoys her challenging math and english classes, and spends her free time in the great outdoors when she has the time. “I love going on adventures and being with my friends”, she explained, “I love being in nature.” Because of her desire for natural light and the outdoors, we headed to a beautiful wooded area, and also a garden location. 

As you can tell, Casey has beautiful personal style that suits her personality. Some of her favorite pieces are high waist jeans, crop tops, and accents like lace...I was so glad she used some of these in her session wardrobe. They suited the carefree and bohemian style that she embodies, and that hair?! Amazing! We were also able to pay homage to her accomplishments in dance, and I loved that we documented her pointe shoes and those gorgeous poses. 

Are you wondering about what a senior session entails? I’ve posted some of the most pertinent information HERE, but I’d love to talk to you personally and answer your questions. Please contact me today!
