What an amazing session this was! Shelby traveled from Northville to get her senior pictures done right here in the Irish Hills, at her family’s beautiful lake property. Upon my recommendation, Shelby got her hair and makeup professionally done, which completely added to her entire senior photoshoot experience. I mean, this is your day, you’re going to want to look and feel like your most confident self. Most of my senior girls don’t want a heavy look to their makeup, and I couldn’t agree more! I love a very natural look, ie foundation that helps even out any skin blotchiness, and hair that looks flowing and natural. (We go over what to ask for from your stylist during your senior consult!)
Taking pictures next to her family’s lake was so much fun! Their side of the lake has a perfect little beach area, where we captured some summertime barefoot shots. The greenery and wildflowers were so gorgeous and perfect for this shoot. Shelby was a delight to photograph – and the natural landscape complimented her easy-going personality perfectly. After we shot around Shelby’s grandparents’ lovely home, we went to an Irish Hills local treasure, McCourtie Park in Somerset, MI, which always makes for a stunning backdrop for senior pictures. This park has so many diverse spots for pictures, from the intricate carved bridges to its natural rock stairs. Shelby’s beauty and grace just glows straight through these photos.
Being friends with Shelby’s wonderful family, I’m beyond ecstatic that I was able capture such an exciting time in Shelby’s life in pictures that they can keep and cherish forever. I wish Shelby nothing but the best of luck in her future endeavors as she begins the next chapter in her life.
