Senior Photographer

Traverse City, Michigan

Kick your shoes off, you won’t need them anyways! During our senior adventure session, I encourage play, personal style, and an appreciation for nature. I’m not your traditional posey photographer, I want to capture the true you with creative and fun images. An adventure photo shoot is the perfect way to capture unique perspectives that incorporate Northern Michigan's beautiful landscapes.

Sleeping Bear Dunes is my favorite spot for a senior session. There’s just something about those rolling sandy hills leading up to Lake Michigan that are alluring to me. There are many little trails and beaches to explore, some iconic and recognizable, there are also other lesser known locations you can only find by discovering them yourself, or hearing about them through word of mouth. Each hill, trail, pathway, or dune is unique in its own way, and I love that.

I don’t limit myself to this one place though; it’s an ongoing mission to find new places to shoot. So if you’re seeking an adventure session off the beaten path, don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s explore together!

"I would definitely recommend Josh for senior or family photos. Josh was always quick to respond with details when contacting him. He's full of energy, laughter and made senior photo taking a blast for our daughter. We were even able to capture a few as a family. We had our pictures back within a few weeks, even though he had a very busy summer schedule." -Angela
