Thank goodness for changes to senior photos over the years! (For a really good time, go back and look through your parents’ yearbooks!) Seriously though, a peek into any high school yearbook within the last twenty years will show some pretty significant differences. Most notably, how much more personality seniors today can display during their sessions!

Reflecting your style

Twenty years ago, print photography was the medium, rather than digital images.  Photographers took most portraits in an indoor studio.  Thankfully, digital photography has allowed photographers to transport our cameras and lighting almost anywhere.  What does this mean for your senior portraits?  No longer are you confined to a studio with traditional props and poses!  Now the world is your oyster! And these senior photos are now an opportunity to reflect you – your unique style and personality as you leave high school behind and enter adulthood.

Enter Abby, Stage Right

The star of this session happens to be our niece and MM photography assistant, Abby Craig. So, naturally, we jumped on the opportunity to take her senior photos on a Presque Isle beach at sunset.  Ready to take on the big world, Abby embodies charisma and charm.

Knowing she wanted to incorporate her love of theater and dance into her senior portraits made it all the more fun for us to photograph!  We love that senior portraits can take place anywhere, doing what you love. And our favorite thing is capturing images that best represent you!

Abby added flair to her photos with stage lighting, costume/wardrobe changes, and dance choreography.  Whenever we see that much talent and vision embodied in a young person, we feel hopeful for the future!

Beachy Vibes on Presque Isle

You can’t go to Presque Isle without grabbing some beachy outdoor photos too!  Sunset senior photos on a Presque Isle beach might just be our new favorite thing.  Casually clad in a t-shirt and shorts, Abby chose to add some fun to her senior photos and opted for photos with some of her favorite people: her mom and boyfriend.  We love Abby’s confident style!  Look out, world.  She’s coming for you!
