Snowy Photo Session – Oakland County Photographer February 13, 2013

These girls have been friends since they were very little.  What better way to celebrate a good friendship than with a photo session?  They gathered their hats and scarves, then boots and even some capes!  We headed out into the snow.  It was just perfect.  A few minutes before it was snowing really hard then it settled into gently falling snow, just perfect for outdoor winter portraits.  These girls were troopers as we tried out new spots, all while trying to keep their toes and noses warm.

I know I shared a lot but I had so many favorites.  Can you believe they even had capes to bring with them?  I was lucky enough to borrow the rose colored cape to use for future photo sessions.  I can’t wait to use it again, maybe this time in some lush woods when Spring returns to Michigan.

I’ve got another winter photo session to share soon.  There is still time to get one before Spring comes.  I’ve got my eye on some new locations for some great Spring sessions.  I’m always location scouting and am getting pretty good at finding some great unique places.  Email me at info@partoflifephotography.com if you are ready to talk about how we can create a special photo session just for you!  When you have a minute stop by my website at http://www.partoflifephotography.com  Thanks!

 

Gorgeous teen headshots! Rochester MI photographer October 4, 2012

I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia last week.  What a gem!  She is in high school and has been doing some local acting.  I really enjoyed talking with her and getting to know her.  What a sweet young lady, and very smart.  She is going places, I’m sure!  Olivia found some time in her busy schedule between acting, sports and all things high school for a photo session one evening last week.  We decided to meet up in Rochester for a downtown photo session.  We were having so much we also stopped at the Clinton River Trail for some more photos.  Here are a few samples from her gallery.  Isn’t she just gorgeous?!?

I’ve been busy with a lot of head shots lately, from corporate to acting to realtors, in addition to family portrait sessions.  I strive to get to know my clients and let their personalities show through.  Everyone ends up with quite a gallery of choices, from standard head shots to full body images.  We also get a variety of environment in the photos and there is enough time for outfit changes.  On-line representatives for actors and models often let you up-load more than one image so these sessions work out great – giving you plenty of options.  In addition to head shots, images can be chosen for zed cards or comp cards.  These are approximately 5×8 cards with a 5×7 image on one side and a compilation of about four smaller images on the other side.  Stats are also printed on these cards, with name, features, etc.  I’m looking forward to two more acting headshot sessions next week.  It’s so fun to come up with new places to go and meet new people.  I love my job as a photographer.  I’m also here after your session to help with print decisions, a few pointers to acting/modeling info, product choices, wall displays for portrait sessions and more!

 

Megan, Senior Class of 2013! ~ Rochester, MI Senior Photographer July 11, 2012

Senior season for the Class of 2013 kicked off  a couple weeks ago with a great photo session with Megan.  Megan is starting her Senior year in September and didn’t want to wait for her photo session.  I can’t blame her with how busy summer gets, then school sports start up and then before we know it school begins and we all know what that entails.  I was totally game to kick off Senior season with Megan.  Megan is sweet, beautiful and comfortable in front of the camera and I feel that all shows in her portraits.  I think she enjoyed the photo session as much as I did and she was a great sport!  She came prepared with a lot of great outfits.  We started out with a studio session with music playing along, then when the light softened at my favorite part of the day we headed into Rochester for some outdoor photo shoot action!  We visited the park and some of my other favorite spots.  I hope Megan and her family are as happy with these portraits as I am.  I’m very thankful that they chose me as their Senior photographer since they do not live near me.  They saw my work and made the hour long drive after seeing another friend’s portraits that I did last summer.  I love referrals and for every one that you refer that books a session you get a $25 print credit.  Ok, on to Megan’s Senior portraits!

We did quite a few different studio set-ups.  This was one of my favorites.

I love this studio set-up – so summery!

Won’t these make great wallet photos?

Part of our visit to the Rochester Municipal Park…

This was taken during our visit to the Rochester Municipal Park.

Then we hit a few colorful spots in downtown Rochester.  I’ll post some more of my favorites on Facebook for Megan to share.  It’s always so hard for me to choose my favorites.

I’ll be adding more of Megan’s images to my senior gallery here.   Feel free to like my business Facebook page here for more session sneak peeks, vendor specials, model calls, etc.  Thanks for reading along and if you would like information on a session let me know!  partoflifephoto@gmail.com

 

A visit from two little beauties! Rochester, MI photography May 10, 2012

Two little girls came to visit the studio last week.  Kora’s whole face lit up with her smiles and little Lyla enjoyed her new skill of walking – walking away from the camera.  Their mom and I tried every trick in the book to get Lyla to stop for a second and pay a little attention to the silly person behind the camera.  I loved every minute of it!  Kora and Lyla were so sweet and cute!  The outfits their mom chose were so cute and complimented them perfectly.  I’m so lucky to work as a photographer and meet families like this!

Beautiful sisters!

Showing of serious new walking skills!

Super sweet and smile-y!
