A Michigan Senior Session

Today’s featured senior session comes to you from Valerie Ott Photography, located inย Kalamazoo, Michigan!

Please describe this session for us:
“Darby wanted a location that fit her personality. Her mom said they were looking at locations over an hour away, when I suggested a Penthouse just minutes away. She toured the location and immediately fell in love with it. This is not an “everyday” location, but one of those special locations that needs to fit the personality. It’s more glamorous than any typical location.

Darby says “The session was different than I expected- in a good way!! I felt very comfortable, just like a friend was taking my pictures. Valerie has a great way of making you feel comfortable and brings out the best features that you never even knew you had.”

What inspired this session?
“The location inspired this to be more of a Kate Spade themed session, which happens to be a favorite of Darby! Her clothes and attitude fit the Kate Spade girl perfectly. In addition, the location was a bit glamours, so glamour was a portion of the session. You can not go wrong with Kate Spade or glamour!”
