When choosing a location for portraits with "tween" boys - it can be a challenge. Looking for something that will reflect this pre-teen stage in their lives AND, something they will enjoy being a part, of is especially a daunting task. My suggestion... try something unique, new and fun... Downtown Bay City, Michigan was the perfect setting for Peyton and Blake's summer 2021 family portrait session.
These boys always come dressed with the best GQ (Gentlemen's Quarterly) outfits, their baby ones with their hats and matching shirts will always be my favorites. The boys are getting a little too old for us to dress them like that now, but these two can still pull off some dapper looks.
Blake will always be my jokester and I wouldn't trade it for the world. His momma actually had him behaving so well that he wouldn't give me funny faces anymore... I had to bribe him to joke around and then inform his mom its OK because the "misbehaving" fun looks are my favorite part of photographing these boys!
I love photographing in Bay City, Michigan as this area allows for so many different unique styles and backdrops. We took advantage of the views of the Saginaw River from downtown Bay City. During the hot summer months of August, Bay City is full of spirt, fashion, shopping, and of course FOOD! We took a stroll down some of the city streets that were closed off for the summer adventures.
How would you describe your photography style?
I get asked this question a lot! I love to mix both posed portraits along with candid moments between family members. Every parent envisions that perfect portrait of their children smiling perfectly into the camera, however, some of my most memorable images are candid moments that share love and emotion.
Before we start your family portrait session, I will contact you to complete our Family Questionnaire so that I can help better understand your preferred photography style and needs.
