NorthRidge Church Spring 2013

Just a quick look into what a weekend shooting lifestyle images for NorthRidge Church looks like. Lots of families, lots of laughs, lots of adventures across Detroit, and plenty of images to be used in upcoming brochures and on their website. I love it. This was the very first shoot that I got to utilize our brand new studio space along the incredible Detroit riverfront as well. I'd say it worked out nicely.

NorthRidge Church Summer/Fall 2011

I go to an amazing church that I am super proud and honored to be a part of. Occasionally I get to do some shooting for them, and I absolutely love it. It's such a stretch to step out of the mold of a wedding day and into setting up more elaborate shoots with someone directing and making the settings for some of my shots. It is much less spontaneous than a wedding or usual portrait shoots, but it is also has been such a freeing experience to shoot in this capacity. We started off the shoot at this ridiculously rad mansion in Indian Village in Detroit. Three floors of early 20th century amazingness, and the top floor was completely empty and an open slate for shooting. It was incredible. This first shot is a cell phone snap ↓

We got a bunch of people together to enjoy some food, pool time, lawn games, and sparklers. It made for great times and even better photos.

A quick shoot in the freezing late-November weather for the Student Ministries event calendar.

These particular photos were used to update the NorthRidge Church website and various marketing materials. I got to work with an awesome crew, as well as my great friends and fellow photographers Rob Woodcox and Ally Powell. Here's to trying new things and growing creatively, every second that you possibly can.
