I photographed Ava and her mother Lauren on beautiful Mackinac Island among the hedges and smoke bushes that line the Annex. I often walk this part of the island during visits. It’s a step back in time as the pavement ends and great hedges line the yards of old homes. This photo shoot was special because Ava’s mother joined her in some of the shots, creating a connection that is visible in the sweet photos that came of it.

If you’re looking for senior portraits on Mackinac Island, I’m here to help. Having worked a few seasons on the island, I know it well. That insider knowledge, along with my creative background in art direction and photography, will be sure to give you truly special portraits.
