Picking Locations for a Lansing Area Photo Shoot Sep 10

Fall tends to be one of the most popular times to schedule photos shoots, and I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately asking for advice about the best places to shoot these sessions in and around Lansing, so I thought it might be time to put together a more formal blog post summarizing some of my favorite picks to help you decide on the best places for you.

Most two hours shoots will leave enough time for two to three locations, depending on how close together they are.

This is a long post with a lot of photos, so feel free to use the links below to jump directly to the section that interests you the most:

Thoughts of Fall Dec 19

After traveling to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Costa Rica over the past few weeks, my sense of season is a bit off. I can hardly believe we already have snow on the ground, and I already miss my nightly walks with Jeff through the neighborhoods by our place (though I suppose we now have the option of picking up a sled and heading to the hill behind our place).

Props to the fashionable Kat Cooper for hanging out with me on Michigan State’s beautiful campus in early November to capture the height of amazing colors.

Kat Cooper | Fall Fashion Sep 23

Every now and then, Kat Cooper and I get together for a seasonal fashion shoot for her blog, Ginger and the Geek. It’s a fun chance for me to play with new styles. This time around, I really wanted to play with color—I’ve been shooting in this beautiful little green space behind my condo lately, and I love the way the light comes through the leaves as the sun is setting behind it. I really like the final look with just a little vintage pop (and it certainly helps that Kat always looks completely lovely).

Check out more photos from the shoot on Kat’s blog.

Kat Cooper | Downtown Lansing Jul 18

Kat Cooper and I got together again in late June during Lansing’s Monday night Happy Hour Club to shoot a quick fashion session for her blog, Ginger and the Geek. The weekly get together was at Lansing’s Waterfront Bar and Grill in the City Market, and the river walk, along with perfect evening light, made for some fun fashion photos. To see more photos from this session—and to keep up on fashion and local Lansing happenings—check out Kat’s blog.
