Fall Senior Photos (Hartland, Michigan) by Kyle Caraher

I guess it is always Senior Season haha

These are some Senior Photos I took this past Sunday. It was the classic case of the guy who doesn’t want to have his picture taken, which is extremely common. I’ve found that it is better to shoot for a shorter amount of time and try to get a few real smiles in, rather than shooting for a long time when they already don’t want to be there. Talking about things that they are interested in/trying to make them laugh is most effective..

This particular Senior had a very cool classic car, so we took some photos with it, and I could tell right away that he didn’t mind taking those photos. They turned out pretty cool, and he was happy because we were able to do the whole shoot in about 45 minuets.

Fall Mini Photoshoot (Dalia) by Kyle Caraher

This is Dalia, a model from Michigan. She took advantage of a Fall Mini Photoshoot Sale that I was running last month. Dalia is a Editorial and Fashion model, and I am a Editorial and Fashion Photographer. So naturally we worked very well together! Here are some of the shots we were able to create:

We shot at about 4pm, which in my opinion can create some really beautiful light depending on your surroundings. Typically “Golden Hour” is best, which is the hour before the sun completely goes down. During this time, the sunlight is a bit softer than say around noon. It looks a bit warmer and you sometimes get those nice sunset colors!

Studio Portrait Photography (Bailey) by Kyle Caraher

Bailey and I shot some Studio Portraits the other day, this was the outcome.

One of the fun things about shooting in a studio, is that you have challenge yourself to create unique and creative poses. Because there is no nature or landscape to interact with, its just the model and MAYBE a few props.

We also shot some stuff using this Pink Seamless Backdrop. Which is not my normal style but it was fun to play around with!

This is Bill, a local entrepreneur and business leader!

Today we played around with Portrait Lighting and different Creative Poses. Posing can be tricky, especially if you are not used to being on camera.

A Tip: Practice posing and making different facial expressions in the mirror, I know it feels silly. But it truly helps you find your best angle and feel more comfortable! 😁

This is Claire, a 4x Published Photographer and Model from Ann Arbor, MI

This is a shot from back in June 2019, we were going for a Street-Style Women’s Fashion look. I really love the way it turned out!

A Tip:

Cloudy and overcast days are actually the best for photos! The clouds create diffusion for the sunlight and prevents harsh shadows!

Editorial Portraits (Kennedy) by Kyle Caraher

Kennedy and I met through a mutual photographer friend. When I found out that she models for editorial portraits, I had to reach out! We shot back in August, at Island Lake in Brighton, MI.

After chatting for a few minutes we decided that actually getting IN the water would be really cool and create some visual interest. I am so thankful that she was willing, because these shots turned out AWESOME!

We also shot some Portraits that were not in the water… and those turned out pretty cool too!

I hope you enjoyed the photos!
