Spencer | L’Anse Creuse High School | Class of 2017 | High School Senior Photography

September 10, 2016

Up next on the blog is Spencer, a Senior at L’Anse Creuse High SchoolClass of 2017 and an Early College of Macomb student! We had a great time with Spencer at his High School Senior Photography shoot. He was a tad nervous but a great sport through it all.  Spencer definitely loves nature and he chose Lake St.Clair Metropark because he wanted “a nice looking sunset beach” theme. He shared with us that they didn’t get his photos done in Florida where they spend most of their vacations. “So, Metro Beach was the next best place.” Lake St. Clair Metropark, (or Metro Beach to all the locals), provides a variety of places to take pictures.  There is the water, of course, with a sandy beach.  There is also the Nature Center and a Marina on hand for some great variety but keeping with the nature themed shoot.  The wind was a bit of a challenge for Spencer as it blew his hair in all kinds of directions. But hey, it ended up helping him smile a bit more naturally and we all had a good laugh.  His would suggest that you “bring lots of hairspray and a comb” with you on your shoot just in case you have a wind issue to deal with as well.

Spencer is an active guy. Not only does he participate in LCHS Wrestling, track and LC Big League, he also volunteers when needed in the community. After graduation, Spencer plans on continuing with the ECM program. As a self described adventurous type, his interests are “high adventure exploration – Atlantic sailing in the Keys, hiking the Grand Canyon, Philmont, Arches National Park in Utah and canoeing in Canada.” His love for all things outdoors was pretty evident as we walked and talked during our session.  Lake St. Clair Metropark was the perfect setting and Spencer felt his shoot “was really fun” and he enjoyed “experiencing the different places within Metro Beach.” We agree, we had a great time walking and driving to the different locations within the park to get the best shots and some great variety.  If you have never been there, you must go.  There is something for everyone.

With this session, besides being a High School Senior, I believe the most important aspect was the location and that it matched the personality of the Senior, Spencer.  As you can see, that worked out well.  However, as with every session, planning is required.  Spencer brought with him 2 shirts, a pair of shorts, a pair of blue jeans and matching shoes.  Spencer felt it “was just enough outfits” for him.  With guys, they usually keep it pretty simple.  It isn’t about the outfits so much as it is about the overall image.  The only thing Spencer wished he had brought with him was a comb and hairspray.  In his defense, the wind was pretty challenging that day!  His advice to other seniors, besides the comb and hairspray, is to make sure you plan ahead the types of pictures you would like, the theme and location.  He also advises other seniors to “decide on what you would like, but be flexible with the photographers, they know the best lighting and positions that look the best.” As the photographers, we definitely agree with this statement!  You have hired us for your session, we promise we will do everything in our power to create memories that will last a life time! There is nothing better than a session in which you have created your theme, your location and your outfits to match and we are allowed to take all of that and mix it with our years of experience to create something truly great!  It’s practically magical.
