There are many outdoor shooting locations that have become virtually off-limits now, due to new fees to shoot there. Places like Mill Race Village in Northville, for example. If you’re a professional photographer, you now have to pay a fee to shoot there. Frankly, it was getting hard to shoot there anyway, because it had become so popular. So I’ve been on a mission to find beautiful shooting locations that are not as popular. We have so much natural beauty here in the Detroit area. Just take a drive down Hines Drive and you’ll see backdrop after backdrop!
Recently, we moved to a home in Livonia. Shortly after we moved, I took my boys to the park that is now the nearest to our house, Bicentennial Park. There’s the playground there, which is really great, but there’s also a great wooded area with a hiking path and whatnot. So when a client asked me if there was anywhere new that I wanted to try, I suggested Bicentennial Park.
Here are some of the pictures that we took there, with her husband and her two lovely daughters as well. I think this location will be especially beautiful in a couple of weeks when all of the leaves change color.
For the first time ever, I am offering Fall Mini Sessions. My clients have been requesting it for a couple of years, and I think it will be a lot of fun! They will be at my home studio, taken outdoors. There will be pine trees, lots of Autumn leaves, and of course, some pumpkins!
Each mini session includes 80 double-sided 5×7 inch holiday cards with envelopes. The portraits will be available for viewing online within 2 weeks to choose which images you’d like on your cards. (Additional purchases are available from the usual price list.) There will be at least 15 pictures to choose from.
These sessions cost $195 each, which serves as a retainer for your time slot. There are only 4 spots available.
Please call (734)261-1563 to reserve your session.
