Claire | Tree Farm Senior Session


POSTED IN: Portraits

Oh, Michigan. I have a love-hate relationship with your weather. When it comes to the cold and snow, I’m not a very big fan. The shoveling. The crappy driving conditions. The sting of cold air on your face. Let’s face it, there’s not a lot to love about this time of the year if you’re not an avid skier. But despite all that, one look at this tree farm senior session, and you can see for yourself how beautiful this time of the year can be!

If you follow my blog, you may recognize this stunning young lady! I had the pleasure of taking Claire’s senior photos this past summer. We spent a few hours at Grand Ravines park enjoying a gorgeous golden hour glow. She’s a total natural in front of the camera so I was really excited when the opportunity to do a second session for a totally different look came about. A huge thank you is in order for Lenderink Tree Farm for letting us roam around their beautiful property and take this fun collection of images.

Claire – it was an absolute pleasure, as always, to get you in front of my camera! I know you mentioned being so ready to go off to college, but enjoy the rest of this year! It truly does go way too fast.

Also, I’m so jealous of your style, but let’s be honest, you could make a paper sack look fashionable! If anyone over at Eddie Bauer is looking for another model, Claire is a natural! Enjoy some of my [many!] favorites.
