Welcome to


Oxford, Michigan Senior Photographer – Congratulations Jordan and McKenna – Class of 2017

Today I’m featuring two very special girls on my blog. Jordan just graduated from Lake Orion High School and McKenna from Oxford High School. They are both such bright, talented, amazing, and beautiful young women – with very big things on their horizons. I’m so happy for both of them, and I feel so lucky that I was able to capture these beautiful photographs to remember this special time in their lives.

We were holding our breath a little hoping for good weather before Jordan’s session – but it turned out beautiful, and we got one of the most AMAZING sunsets I’ve ever captured at the end of her session. I’m so in love with a fabulous sunset.  Her photos are up first, and she also brought her cheer gear for some super cute cheer photos as well!

McKenna had an gorgeous fall backdrop for her session, and we managed to get her session all in, just before it began to rain. I LOVE the fall colors here in Michigan. My absolute favorite time of year to shoot here. Not too hot, and beautiful colors.

One of the things I love most {besides actually getting to make this gorgeous artwork} is how each of my photo clients become part of my “photo family”. For me it’s so much more than just taking photos. I hope to help all of my clients see how beautiful they truly are, and I get to be a part of some of the most important times in their lives….. graduating, getting married, having babies, family milestones….. and I’m lucky enough to be in contact with most of my clients, long after their sessions. These two beautiful ladies ( and their awesome families ) have even been so kind as to invite me to celebrate with them at their graduation parties – so I’m heading out soon to go celebrate them both today!!! Here’s to you girls. All of the best next year and into the future. I know that you will do amazing things and I can’t wait to see you both take on the world! lots of love to you xoxo Marlaina
