Brenna... beautiful 2011 Lansing senior

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brenna and her family from Lansing. I knew right off the bat from speaking to Brenna that she would be SO much fun to work with!

Brenna chose the "urban/industrial" look for her first location. Check her out!

Next, we headed to the beautiful Ludington State Park, where Brenna continued to 'work it'.

Finally, we headed down to gorgeous Lake Michigan, where we captured some fun-in-the-sun images of the lovely Miss Brenna.

When Brenna first told me on the phone that she was bringing her saxophone for a few shots, I was psyched! She said she wanted to do something different with it; not the standard instrument-and-grin photos and I immediately thought of a sunset beach silhouette.

After she was in the water, I explained what I wanted her to do. "Oh!" she said, "You want a horn pop!" (You learn something new every day.)

Brace yourself...

Annnnnnnnnd YES! We nailed it!

I want to thank Brenna, Missy, and Brandon for allowing me to photograph Brenna at such a wonderful, exciting time in her life. And Mackenzie, it was a pleasure meeting you & I can't wait for our session next year!
