Brooke is the third graduate in her family to come to me for their senior portraits. I’m so incredibly honored by their family’s continued support of me, especially considering that they drive all the way up to Grayling from downstate! Brooke’s session was the first at our new location and it was on a beautiful fall day, perfect for the various places we have right at our fingertips. The boardwalk with it’s close canopy of cedars, the swinging bridge, the fall grass at the lakeshore, and, of course, the gorgeous golds and reds of the tamaracks and maples in October.
Congratulations to Brooke – a 2017 graduate! We wish you the very best as you leap into your next adventure! Thank you for letting me be a part of this special moment in your life!

Tori wanted her senior pictures to be taken around Torch Lake where her family spends time every summer! We met up in Rapid City on a beautiful October day, when the autumn color was at its finest, yet still warm enough to brave the Torch Lake waters for a few fun sunset images. Tori has such an amazing smile, a spirit that just shines through to everyone around her! We had a fantastic time getting these images, I’m so glad she wanted her senior pictures up north and came all the way from downstate to let me be part of the process. Go Class of 2017~ Best of Luck on the next adventure!

Senior 2016: Jillian
What happens when you combine a stunning girl and a field of sunflowers right at sunset in northern Michigan? You get these stunning images of Jillian! Jillian was amazing to work with and came up from downstate to make sure her senior pictures reflected her summer times spent in the Kalkaska area. We had so much fun in and around beautiful Elk Rapids on a hot summer night! Here are a few of our favorites from the session!

There is no better feeling as a photographer than to have a client who loves their images so much that they are willing to drive nearly 4 hours to come see me again! Sidney’s Senior Portrait Session (Part 1) was done in the beauty of the northern Michigan summer time, with the field in full bloom and summer sun warming the horizon with gorgeous tones and creamy backgrounds. Don’t miss the link at the bottom of this post to take you back to her summer session to see all of her amazing images!
Sidney also wanted fall color photos to add to her Senior Collection and we had the perfect fall day in all its Michigan October splendour! We found some awesome places near Torch Lake to capture these portraits and had so much fun during the whole process! Thank you for coming to see me again Sidney, I am honored that you chose me for this amazing time in your life! Congratulations on your recent graduation!

The incredible Sidney drove all the way up from SE Michigan on her 17th birthday to have her senior portraits done on a perfect summer evening! We planned and waited and waited some more until the conditions were just right for this kind of perfect evening light in this field and the perfect smoothness on the lake for reflections. It was incredible and I can’t tell you how much fun we had putting together these elements of style and place to create something memorable for Sidney.

Chelsea came to me hoping to go outside the box of traditional senior pictures and include some more creative artwork in her background. As an art major starting college this fall, she really didn’t want boring backgrounds and had this setting in mind at the Traverse City Commons on the Old State Hospital grounds.
I love it when seniors come to me with ideas that we can grow and develop into concepts that come to life in their images! It’s a lot of fun to pull something together that makes a statement about the person they are and what dreams and goals they are beginning to pursue.

This amazing senior session was a ton of fun! Matthew was up for some creative setups to capture the essence of him as a cage fighter! Not only had he won his first fight the week before, he had set a record for the fastest KO!
Thank you, Matthew and family, for coming to Riverains Photography for your Senior Portraits!

Kristen is the gorgeous girl married to Josh, the man who has been my husband’s best friend since they were 12 years old. Over the years Kristen and I have become good friends as well and I absolutely love that I get to capture the moments and celebrations of their family life almost as much as I capture my own!
Congratulations on your graduation, Kristen!
