Senior Portrait Session For Emma In Charleston, SC

Being a photographer for over 37 years has given me the ability to capture pretty much anything and anyone from regular clients to model, celebrities, and so many other great clients. I have built a huge clientele that varies in all spectrum to include weddings that turn into children photos, to family photos, to senior portrait. Mrs. Bellino who was both of our daughter’s teacher contacted me about possibly capturing Emma her daughter senior pictures. I was very honored to do that and being that I am a perfectionist in my craft I recommended to her to hire a makeup artist. Jasmine Jones of was my recommendation to her. On the day of the photo shoot that we had set, the weather was not at all cooperating, however, the forecast for the evening showed that it would still be cloudy with no rain. We met in our holy city of Charleston, Sc. I already had taken into consideration on how I would compensate for the ugly gray cloudy day with my trick lighting to create the images to look as if the sun was there and that it mimic sunset time.

The photo session lasted about 1.5 hours and could not have gone any better, Emma being very comfortable in front of the camera, her mom by her side, and me doing what I do best, making a compelling portrait. Theses images came out spectacular and as you can see by these senior portrait images.

Family Portrait @ Boone Hall Plantation

Hello again, a couple of weeks ago, I received a phone call from Mrs Johnson, asking me if I would be interested in photographing a family shoot, “but of course I replied”. One of the most important question I always have for the client is, what type of theme are they looking for.? She replied that she loved the oak trees and spanish moss, “say no more I replied”. I got on the phone with Jennifer @Boone Hall Plantation she was kind enough to let us use the property. Well here are just a couple of shots from that great session, now the reason they turned out so good was not just the fact that they are a very good looking family, but that I had the honor and privilege of also having my great daughter Courtney assist me. You did such a great job Honey….! 😉 Dad..

Here also is the email from Mrs Johnson to Jennifer. Thank you for the compliments Mrs Johnson it was fun and It is always my pleasure to make every client over satisfied…! Enjoy

Dear Jennifer,

I wanted to take an opportunity to thank you for giving my family the opportunity to use Boone Hall Plantation for the backdrop of our family photos. I specifically wanted the live oak drive way. As my children are quickly coming on age, it was a opportunity of a lifetime to memorialize this moment in our life at such a lovely place. I couldn’t have been more pleased with Michel’s work.
