I love Michigan. I love the water and the woods, the sunsets and beaches, I love it all. When I was contacted to shoot Peyton’s senior photos in the “thumb”, I was so excited. I have been to the “thumb” but this time I was going to be introduced to the area by people who grew up there and also still live there. My hopes were high that they would show me some secret beauty on the shores of Lake Huron and they did not disappoint.
Peyton is a young woman who has a wonderfully bright future, she takes great pride in who she is and she projects a light on all who surround her, the world could use more people like this. During her session, when I would ask her for a serious face, the next frame she was beaming with the brightest smile or she would burst into laughter, her humor and silliness made this session so much fun.
We wrapped up our day on the beach watching the sun set, Peyton said “there’s nothing like a HuCo sunset”. I have always been partial to the northwest parts of Michigan, but after seeing that sunset on Lake Huron, I may have to explore the thumb more in the future.
I have to thank my friends Lisa and Casey for making this shoot happen and for carting me around, I’m lucky to have awesome supportive women surrounding me, love you ladies! xo
